NEW VERSION 1.10.2 Beta

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert DVD, Blu-ray and AVCHD discs that you own into MKV. The only thing MakeMKV does - it remuxes/changes the video clips from the disk into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way(no video and audio reconversion). The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters. There are many players that can play MKV files nearly on all platforms.

I am curious why this is still in Beta after so long. Works ok once the author posts a key to use.

Great product when it works, but latest version is expired and there is no new key posted.

Great piece of software. I went ahead and bought a key a long time ago so I haven't had any of the Problems with key that have been poster here. It also works on Linux which I have a dual boot setup Windows/Linux Mint.

@ RLT69: I was/am aware of that. That's why I posted link to the ' website down?' thread. I did clean install of MakeMKV v. 1.9.6 on new system and ripping of DVDs worked without any problems. I don't have a Blu-Ray drive, but one of the forum members confirmed he had problems with BDs. So maybe MakeMKV downloads some additional data needed to rip them? Anyway I have no clue what caused problems for some people, but not for me.

Anyway is back on, plus we can enjoy new 1.9.7 version of our favourite program :-)
