I want to know how can i rip Blu-rays and 3D Blu-rays to make a MKV to store on my HDD so its all on my HTPC for easy viewing instead of having to switch out disc
want the best quality and i have about 2.5TBs of spaceHow good a quality do you need???
For a 100% quality you run mkvtoolnix extract and run mmg.exe push add and navigate to your blueray BDMV\STREAM folder add the first m2ts,the others should be added automatically,note the output filename and push start muxing.
If you dont have THAT much space and need to make your mkv be smaller files, use Free make Video Converter ,push all to mkv, push the little gear icon to get into options, the size(and quality) depends heavily on the bitrate so experiment a little to see what's good for you,do it on a little clip,or just cancel after a minute or so and watch the uncompleted movie,an other important option is the dual pass which will take about twice the time but will have much better quality...
Seconded for answer. I'm in the market and I'm just browsing top rated at Newegg and I see this Asus has a $20 rebate right now. Would this just be for burning only or could I use this on my HTPC to watch Blu-rays as well as rip?What are the currently recommended optical drives to rip my blu-rays to hard drive?
