Review by darkio on Sep 27, 2013 Version: 0.81 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 7/10

Great tool and very easy to use.

New version available 0.76

Review by Eyedoctor2 on Mar 16, 2010 Version: 0.76 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I had a bunch of HD-DVD rips (made with AnyDVD-HD) that I just couldn't get to play properly (audio & video that is).

I used this program and it turned a 35 GB HD-DVD structure into a Blu-Ray structure in under 40 minutes -- without any need to transcode the movie (beyond minor changes to the container setup).

Fantastic way to make your HD-DVD collection playable for the future.

Very easy to use. All settings are damn near self-explanatory and those that aren't have mouse over tips. One of the two download links above ALSO includes the other freeware utilities needed to make the conversions -- and you don't have to install ANY of them. (The only thing you may wish to install is ImgBurn, which is also free and used by the program ONLY if you wish to make an ISO out of the final Blu-Ray structure.)

Can also be used to create a simple .m2ts file if you are not interested in the whole Blu-Ray structure. Supports forced subtitles. Automatically picks the proper streams (languages) you want and lets you adjust as desired.

Works great use this to convert the bluray movies to .TS format for my dvico unit.. Many thanks to the author of all the tools involved in this package!

Review by zomorf on Jan 22, 2010 Version: 0.75 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Kudos to the author(s) and secondary apps to make this great tool possible.
