Get my BD copied in lossless MKV format for easily controlling multiple audio sound tracks when watching

This guide provides a simple way to complete lossless backup Blu-ray Disc to lossless mkv format keeping multiple audio tracks, subtitle streams and chapter markers on Mac(Mavericks included).

My problems are I can't seem to create a mkv of the full blu ray (BD) with all the sound tracks. Each time I do it I only get one audio sound track. One time Japanese. I would like to choose English French and Spanish. Sound tracks and subtitles. I also see a problem when down converting the BD from HD to SD. Again I can't seem to control the audio sound tracks that get copied. Is there a way to go from blu ray direct to SD MKV multi track?

Every time you play blu-ray in blu-ray drive, the disc will suffer little quality loss. So a digital backup will help to save the storage space of blu-ray collection, and make it easier to access and carry with. As most Blu-ray Discs include multiple audio and subtitle tracks so that people from different countries who speaking different languages can enjoy same movies in their native languages, so this is reason why people choose to "go from blu ray direct to lossless MKV format" as above.

If you are a Mac use, here recommend you Pavtube Bytecopy for Mac which can help you to backup BD/DVD to mkv without any quality loss. It helps to convert to lossless mkv files with all multiple audio and subtitle tracks, and chapter markers from original BD/DVD. So you can enjoy your movies at any time just like watching BD/DVD and freely choose your desired language.

Let me show you how to do it and you will find the workflow is so easy.

Firstly, you should have download and installed the software. (PS: If you wanna a Windows version, please go to Pavtube Bytecopy. Both are 30% off now.)

They are used to transcode BD/DVD to .mp4 and .mov output files. The point is that they support saving encoded multiple audio tracks. So you could enjoy it in your iPhone or iPod.

Tip 2: Directly Copy will provide you another way to lossless output. It will provide you a 100% backup in original format without extracts. If you do not want to output mkv files or your player cannot play mkv files, directly copy is the best choice for you.

Video_TS folder is the folder on DVDs that contains the DVD's video data and playback information. It contains three kinds of formats, IFO, BUP and VOB. IFO is information file, which is the main factor to operate video playback. With IFO files you can forward or backward the video at will. If IFO files are damaged or can't be read, don't worry. BUP is the backup of IFO and they have the totally same function. But if you happen to lose them all, you will have big trouble in controlling video play, so be careful. VOB means video objects, which is the container of video files. No need to say how important it is.

However, Video_TS folders are not that widely supported. If you want to play play Video_TS folders on much more media players, you may need to convert DVD VIDEO_TS folder to playable MKV file in advance.

Move "The Lego Movie(2014)" Blu-ray onto Western Digital My Book Live for roku streaming with Mac OS X

This article introduces how to backup or copy "The Lego Movie(2014)" Blu-ray disc to Western Digital My Book Live on Mac, so that you can watch the movie on Roku without format problems.

Review: Everything About 'The Lego Movie"

It would have been so much easier, and so much safer, for directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to just make the kind of Lego Movie that you probably expected from the marketing. They could have crafted a simple hero’s journey, crammed with celebrity cameos and postmodern humor, and called it a day while watching the money roll in and the toy sales shoot through the roof.

And there are all of these elements in this particular Lego Movie, but there is also something more. The film goes in some wonderfully unexpected directions and takes real storytelling risks. I cannot say how everyone will respond to its narrative left turns and unexpected poignancy, but they elevate to the film far above a glorified toy commercial. The Lego Movie may in fact be brilliant. Expected release date for The Lego Movie DVD and Blu-ray discs is May-June, 2014.

How to bacup "The Lego Movie(2014)" Blu-ray onto Western Digital My Book Live" on Mac

Or you can click on “Copy the entire disc” button to back up Blu-ray movie to Mac. A 90 min. Blu-ray takes about 40 min to copy to Mac hard drive. The ripped Blu-ray directory contains two folders, “BDMV” and “CERTIFICATE”. Then the ruku is able to play the M2TS files from Blu-ray directory.

Step 3. Specify an output folder to save Blu-ray movie.
