CloneBD lets you copy any unprotected Blu-ray to your hard drive, or any blank Blu-ray disc. With just a few clicks you can choose to make a partial copy of selected titles, audio languages, and subtitle languages, or you can do a straight 1:1 complete copy of your Blu-ray. CloneBD makes perfect 1:1 clones, but also compresses BD-50 to a single BD-25, BD-9 or BD-5. CloneBD will also convert your Blu-ray discs to all popular file formats, such as .mp4, .mkv, .avi, and any devices like Android, iPhone/iPad, Smart TV, or any other current device. CloneBD supports all regions (A,B,C). Please note that commercial Blu-rays might also require AnyDVD HD.

1.2.6.0 2019-09-10
- fix: application hangs when transcoding some still images
- fix: slow downconversion of some DTS-HD audio tracks
- fix: windowed DVD style subtitles for MKV output were transparent (invisible)
- fix: support exotic audio formats (e.g. 4 channel 4.0 or 3.1)

- changed: partial copies with "maintain original menu" retain stream slots for removed languages.

1.1.7.1 2017-11-24

Note: the beta incorporates an enormous amount of rewrites and structural redesigns, so your beta testing input is very appreciated.
It also comes with Ultra HD support, so whoever owns unencrypted UHD images/folders can try CloneBD on them.

Software base UHD support is included, but of course not very fast, unless you make lossless copies (lossless UHD to MKV is included).

Real speed requires an nVidia card (which still will be improved further in upcoming versions), here are the basic requirements:
compress UHD HDR to 8 bit MKV or MP4, full acceleration requires at least an nVidia GTX 9xx
CloneBD will perform the required HDR to SDR and color space conversion
compress UHD HDR to 10 bit MKV, full acceleration requires at least an nVidia GTX1050 card (for HEVC Main 10 Level encoding with HDR)
Full UHD disc copy is experimental.

1.1.6.0 2017-07-19
- New: support frame packed 3D (MVC) in MKV files lossless and lossy
important note: only a few PC-players support this 3D format, including PowerDVD 16 or higher, Kodi - only a few linux version and Stereoscopic Player,
also, lossless MVC don't properly work with PowerDVD, reencoded copies work fine.
For now, only software de-/encoding is possible and is fairly slow.
- New: added setting to eject source disc after processing
- Change: security update for ElbyCDIO.sys
- New: preview player allows to switch display between 2D and SBS formats (R/L view can be used for "squinting eyes 3D" for quick verification)
- Change: for lossless copies, remove the beaver from the preview, this was confusing because users thought, it would show up in the copy as well
- Improve: display correct bitrates/output sizes when encoding MVC output
- Fix: user interface - switching between 2D and MVC output sometimes left HEVC codec disabled (greyed out)
- Workaround: Windows MediaFoundation Parser bug (Windows Media Player/"Movies & TV") couldn't parse MKV files, that were created with "extra track for forced subtitles"
- Fix: NTSC non-telecine incorrectly detected as telecined so field splitting failed
- Fix: size estimator is off, when many picture in picture streams and an over-abundance of subtitles is in the source
- Fix: write global header, when converting VC-1 video AVC/MKV
- Fix: secondary DTS audio (picture in picture)
- Fix: 2D playlists sometimes got hidden by their 3D counterparts

- Fix: Multiple corruptions of BD data
- Fix: Early terminating streams (data corruption due to preprocessing with 3rd party tools and then postprocessing in CloneBD)
- Fix: Subtitle display on some Opus players
- Fix: Audio/video drift on some PAL encoded discs (that have been "telecined" from NTSC and not sped up)
- Fix: Further support for 192 kHz/96 kHz Dolby Atmos discs
- Fix: Further support for some audio discs (LPCM, 24-bit, 192 kHz)
- Fix: Correctly output big-endian audio samples (was little-endian)

Changelog CloneBD Blu-ray Media Converter

CloneBD has been tested for a couple of month by our beta testers (thank you guys!) and they helped us to find and fix major and minor bugs and to improve the features of CloneBD.
But no beta test can ensure a 100% perfect software application.
CloneBD is not 100% perfect yet, but we are working hard to get there.

Known issues:
-------------
- Some old GPU drivers on Windows XP produce artifacts when transcoding
- Super fast switching between audio tracks in preview player may lead to silence or wrong language
- Some hardware players may have problems with chapter markers of compressed discs
- On some titles the transcoding seams to be stuck for a few seconds, a fallback algorithm will resolve the issue after about 15 seconds

Upcoming changes and features:
------------------------------
- Full 3D support in compressed discs
- Full 3D support in matroska files
- Full subtitle support in matroska and MP4 files
- Support for DVD output (downscaled to SD naturally)
- Support for DLNA
- Improved support for all new codecs, like WebM, HEVC, AAC+, FLAC and lots more
Hide changelog

Easy title selection with included Blu-ray preview player
No driver needed, UDF 2.50 parser included
Multi-core CPUs and NVIDIA CUDA hardware acceleration
3D support coming soon...
H.265/HEVC support coming soon...

System Requirements
A Windows compatible PC with minimum 2 GHz Processor and 1 GB RAM
Windows XP/XP64/VISTA/VISTA64/Win7/Win7-64/Win8/Win8-64

One thing to add. You may have a problem with a CloneBD created disc. It should play on any conventional BD player-no if's and's or but's and it does not. I can play the discs in my computer, but it locks up my LG BD 550 player. However, it plays on other peoples players. I am not the only person who has this problem. Fortunately, the create a file option is a work around as you can then create a burnable disc that works. If Cinavia is not a problem for you, then avoid this product for the time being until they get it right. It does a good job on Cinavia.

Review by pepegot1 on Nov 21, 2015 Version: 1.0.6.9 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 5/10




This is what the first issue of the software should have been.
It works fine and is quick. Twenty minutes to copy a full lenght movie and kill Cinavia too.
Now, it is worth the money.

A nice improvement in screen display and speed. It is coming of age as a good product.
Many of us have been beta tester surrogates for far too long.

They came out with a 1.0.5.5 update almost immediately and all is now good. With Windows 7 being the most used version for their software, one would think QC would have caught this blatant error. I posted this so that others would not have a problem like me and I also informed Slysoft. They took effective corrective action.
