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.

Let's be nice. Probably user entered a defunct key or was mistyped. Had a similar situation myself until I entered updated trial key a while back. Functions are still limited and problematic in XP 32 bit by the way, but don't have XP 64 bit to test. Also a few problems in Win7 of not reading discs,but minor issues. Nice tool for backup though.

To Daniel:
You should read the program description before posting such b**t. Type in the beta key, which is available for free even on this website, and you will have full functionality. Key changes about every other month, but you can always get a new key here for free.

After extensive testing, I bought the program. So I don't have to hassle with beta keys anymore.

Not Freeware as stated. Upon installation immediately got the message that Trail Period was expired.

Please mark this as Trialware so people don't waste their time.

Seems to be quite good. DVD MPEG-2 is already compressed enough as it is, so I'm not keen on transcoding it and dealing with the resulting generation loss. This app remuxes your selected AV streams into .mkv file without touching the AV quality, so you get exactly the same quality as you would if watching the disc. Exactly what I wanted and very easy to use. Prior to this I was trying to use XMediaRecode which can do the same thing in theory, but in practice I found it extremely buggy (crashes often, some streams can't be decoded) and remuxing is very slow for some reason (around 20MB/sec vs 300MB/sec). It remains to be seen whether the app can deal with all my discs though.
