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 do NOT recommend MakeMKV.
It tends to create damaged MKVs from DVDs for whatever reason.
When I validate created MKVs with mkvalidator tool , it often throws tons of errors, forcing you to create MKV again.
For some disks or DVDs already ripped to HDD, you will never be able to create error-free MKVs.
Use mkvtoolnix instead.

Fantastic software. A tip before using it on those slightly grainy or dirty DVD's is to use DVD Rebuilder free or pro and input an avisyth script which will work in both progressive of interlaced e.g

UnDot().FluxSmoothT(temporal_threshold=7, luma=true, chroma=true)

Export at 100% no compression. Voila cleaned up a little. Then run MakeMKV on your hard drive dvd folder(but doesn't work in XP! for some reason?) or disc if you've burned it. You can of course compress using the equally fabulous DVD Rebuilder e.g dual layered DVD's, strip the menus, audio choices etc and get it to 4.35b approx size, the use MakeMKV on it again. UnDot is mild and equivalent to RemoveGrain(mode1) and FluxSmoothT is non destructive at default.
