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.

This software is unbelievable. With programs like DVDFab charging hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for decrypting and copying your discs to harddrive at a 1:1 lossless conversion, MakeMKV is an absolute steal and is quite possibly one of the greatest programs ever created for the PC. It's not an exaggeration, MakeMKV is without a doubt the most critical tool any possible self-proclaimed cinephile could own. Add on top of that the fact that the developer is constantly giving away free beta keys to extend the freeware period by 60 days AND the fact that he and his community are active 24/7 on the forums makes MakeMKV to the DVD/BDR scene what Doom9 was to us almost 20 years ago.

MakeMKV is also an import and incredible tool because of its easy, completely intuitive interface. It's got a great minimalist aesthetic and everything is simple, concise and effortless to figure out and navigate. So easy, in fact, that an elementary school child could figure out how to rip a dvd/bluray to a harddrive if given the opportunity.

MakeMKV can't be praised enough. The 9.0 score from ~70 users is deserved, 100%. I'm amazed it doesn't have a perfect 10/10. After years of use, I plan to use it for as long as I have a bluray and dvd library to backup and update on my NAS. Bravo to the MakeMKV family and thank you for everything you've done for the scene. Much love and respect!!!

Makemkv was the best program they ever invented when it comes to creating an MKV video file from physical media, without changing its video, audio or subtitle structure. In the generation of Smart tv, it is a rather than exciting tool, because for me that has a large collection of dvd's and no longer uses the dvd player, I can simply create a file in mkv, and transfer it for my external hd, or flash drive (depending on the file size of course), it is possible to create the same process in other ways, but it is too complicated, and requires more tools, make mkv, automates and facilitates this process and safer anyway, Makemkv is an indispensable tool, and one that makes you easier to insert into the new way of watching video on television without discarding your physical media, rather than saving your content, in a single file, Congratulations to the developers!

Review by Forrest Gump on Aug 21, 2019 Version: 1.14.4 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Excellent software. I noticed in other reviews that the latest product key is issued for free by the developer on their official Forum (in a thread under the Announcements section).

It works perfectly for doing straight forward Blu-ray backups. I've just used it with 2 Blu-ray discs which aren't encrypted, and I'm now left with 2 .MKV files, fully chapter'd, without transcoding(!) and it plays perfectly in MPC-HC. I used an exclamation mark for the no-transcode design because it means I have a 1:1 flawless quality reproduction, and it drastically reduces conversion time too. Obviously the resulting file size is 'massive' as a result but who doesn't have terabytes of space these days for files coming in at 10-20GB a piece.

It's honestly amazing how such a light-weight, simple but effective piece of software is created for free (at least for now) by the developer who has surely invested over a hundred hours into this. My hat's off to him.

I ended up buying the program as it "just works" I used the free version updating the rego code as per instructions for years, finally thought maybe I should support the author and I bought a permanent license. Absolutely no problems with it and I have transferred all my Blu Ray and DVD's to MKV and loaded them onto my NAS. I reckon anyone who has a problem with getting it work hasn't read or more to the point comprehended the instructions.
