To this day, there are very few approaches to see your Blu-Ray collection on your computer without shelling out cash for the freedom, even if you previously own a Blu-Ray drive and bought your own movies. On the contrary, it's simpler to rip your Blu-Rays to your computer and play them in whatever program you want. Here's the best means to do it, and also how to keep your file sizes small enough to keep your entire collection.
This way, you do not need to swap discs, you can play your pictures in any program you need, and you can also stream them to your other devices. You may even add your old DVD collection. If you would like to rip your DVDs, this process will work as well, but we'll focus on Blu-Rays--our recommended process for DVDs is a bit different.
What You Will Need:
You'll need a few tools to be able to start ripping your Blu-Ray collection. Before you begin, make sure you have installed the following:
If your computer came with almost any disc drive at all, it was probably a DVD drive. However, you are going to want a Blu-Ray reader in order to split your Blu-Ray discs (obviously). Luckily, you can get them on line for under $60. If you would like to burn your Blu-Ray discs, you will want a drive that could read and write to clean Blu-Rays, but we will assume that you only want to keep them onto your hard disk.
This application, available for both Windows and macOS, rips your Blu-Rays into an MKV file. That's it. MakeMKV offers a free beta that works for 30 days, but that is a little misleading. Each month, you may either download the most recent version of the beta or trigger the program utilizing the latest beta key in the conversation. MakeMKV asserts that it's just a beta product, but it has been in"beta" for years, so it may stay free for a long time. At the moment, you should not need to cover this app.
MakeMKV Keygen will rip your Blu-Ray movie exactly as it is on the disc, which is 20 or 30GB in size. Thus, we will use Handbrake to compress your MKV files into something a little more manageable, without losing quality. It's not only necessary, but it is a waste of resources to storeplay, and stream huge media files if you do not have to.
This is all you want. As soon as you have all three of those things installed, grab your favourite Blu-Ray pictures and begin.
Step One: Rip Your Own Blu-Ray With MakeMKV
First, you will have to do a basic rip of your Blu-Ray. MakeMKV is a dead simple app that does one thing really well: create a full size, 1080p MKV media document from your Blu-Ray disc. Once you have your MKV, you can shrink it, convert it, or modify it however you desire. You may also watch it , if you would like, but it is probably better if you shrink it down a little afterwards.
To split your movie, put the disk on your Blu-Ray drive and open MakeMKV. After a moment, a large Blu-Ray drive icon will appear. Click on this to scan the names on your disk.
After MakeMKV is done scanning for names, you'll see a list of these at the left panel of this app. It is possible to choose which names you need to rip here. This listing will include exceptional features, deleted scenes, and anything else on the disk. It may take a little guess work to find out which tracks are which, but in the event that you simply want the movie, it is likely the really big monitor which takes up around 20-30GB around the disk. Select only the tracks you want to split.
