MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert DVD, Blu-ray, UHD 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. Decrypt complete Blu-rays and DVDs to HDD or stream directly to your network(UPnP). MakeMKV is FREE while in beta, get free MakeMKV key here. Full version costs $50.

I've been using MakeMKV and its great for doing backups - but as far Blu-Ray disks are concerned, its way to finicky. If you look at the forums you's see it often fails when trying to actually make MKV files with varying error messages. I had a bran new disk that plays and backs up fine, but I had to use BDtoAVCHD if I simply wanted to remux the video and audio, untouched, from the backup to an MKV file. I rated BDtoAVCHD a 10 because it gave me no problems.
