 how to convert bluray to a MKV video file

Blu-ray™ video format is growing in popularity mainly because viewers enjoy watching movies in full HD resolution (1920*1080 pixels) and high-quality audio output. However, when you want to view your Blu-ray™ videos on other devices, it can be difficult. This is primarily because the optical drives that can read or write Blu-ray™ media are not widely available.

One way to view your Blu-ray™ videos in a more commonly viewable format is to convert them to a MKV video file. Video conversion tools are available on the Internet for personal, non-sharing, non-commercial use. Below are instructions on how to complete this conversion using a free application, called MakeMKV©.

MakeMKV© Converting Instructions:

  1. Open your Internet browser.
  2. Download and install the MakeMKV© software.
  3. Launch MakeMKV©. Choose your Blu-ray™ drive from the “Source” drop-down menu.
  4. Now choose the main movie.  Choose one audio track, such as AC3 DD Audio Track which works quite well.
  5. Click on the “MakeMKV” icon to save the output MKV file. It requires a large amount of HDD space and may take about one hour to complete. You will see the conversion process take place.

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you want to shrink the MKV video. Run HandBrake©, a multi-threaded video transcoder available for Windows®, Mac® OS X®, and Linux®. Load the MKV file from “Source > Video File”. After that, choose the “High Profile > Film Preset”, then set the desired output file size and finally click “Start” to begin shrinking the MKV file. HandBrake© needs .NET runtime library installed in your system. You can download .NET Framework 2 and install it.
  • If MakeMKV© can't read the Blu-ray Disc®, you may need to run AnyDVD® HD in the background. This application allows you to watch Blu-ray™ movies over a digital display connection.
