MakeMKV overview

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into a free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from the proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. 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, and there are tools to convert MKV files to many formats, including DVD and Blu-ray discs.

Additionally MakeMKV can instantly stream decrypted video without intermediate conversion to a wide range of players, so you may watch Blu-ray and DVD discs with your favorite player on your favorite OS or on your favorite device.

  • Reads DVD and Blu-ray discs
  • Reads Blu-ray discs protected with latest versions of AACS and BD+
  • Preserves all video and audio tracks, including HD audio

I agree with rhpbates4 - this is not easy to use! Additionally, I found that it doesn't do a great job with subtitles (even selecting the subtitles is confusing). I ripped Avatar with forced subtitles for when the Navi language was being spoken and found that the font would inexplicably change here and there and sometimes just before the subtitles appeared you'd see other random text appear like "Speaking in Navi". This has some fundamental bugs still left to iron out - it's close, but I wouldn't trust any rip (at least with subtitles) for archiving without completely rewatching the movie first...

I went for this system as it is billed as very simple to use.So little to think about and such like.No it is difficult to navigate and there is little or no help online.It was a thrown in the deep end experience for me.So no wouldn't recommend this system at all really.Must be better DVD ripping systems around.
