[Blu-ray Ripper reviews]Top 3 Blu-ray ripping software for you

Blu-ray has a number of advantages that other video formats do not have, such as high-definition, large-capacity, etc, but the market and consumer can not accept it truly for its high price. Perhaps only some consumers that like to try new things and rich people will buy it. Most people would choose HD-DVD or ordinary DVD. However, if we still want to see Blu-ray movies, what can we do?

Trough surfing the Internet for some time, I’ve collected dozens of Blu-ray rippers developed for Windows and Mac user. With the special intention of figuring out which one is the best of all, I’ve tested nearly each of them, and finally pushed out this review to show my own opinion about the top 3 Blu-ray rippers summarized by myself. Hope it will be of some help for you, and any comment and criticism are appreciated. Now, let’s have a look at the 3 BD rippers one by one together.

No.1 Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper

Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is the best one among all the splitters I have tested. It is an independent DVD and Blu-Ray ripper with Windows 7 support, which is capable of decrypting unprotected and protected standard DVDs and Blu-ray disks without the support of third party software.

With full Blu-ray disc support, it is capable of removing copyright protections of almost all BD discs, no matter BD+, or AACS, even MKB v17 is supported as well. With advanced audio technology, it is capable of reading all audio tracks of a BD disc, including Dolby TureHD Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio, which will never let you miss out your mother tongue in the movie.

This Blu-Ray Ripper can rip and convert your Blu-ray movies and general DVDs into other popular HD or SD media formats, like MKV, AVI, ASF, MPEG, MP4, WMV, MOV, FLV, SWF, RM, 3GP, AAC, AC3, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4A, etc., so that you can playback them on your beloved media devices such as iPad, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Zune, Blackberry, PSP, PS3, Creative Zen, Nexus One, PS3, WD TV, Xbox, etc., or import them to Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere to make your own movies, or do something else as you like. Moreover, it has a unique option called “Copy”, through which you can directly backup your DVD .vob files and Blu-ray .m2ts files to the hard drive of your PC or an external hard drive, and still keep the format of .vob and .m2ts without any quality loss.

Additionally, this Blu-ray ripper allows user adjusting video and audio parameters like bit rate, frame rate , sample rate, aspect ratio, audio channels, etc., that means you are able to compress the file size of your Blu-ray discs according to your own requirements.

Best of all, it is with the enhanced support for Blu-ray subtitle and audio track conversion. Once you selected on the certain Blu-ray file, it will be able to read out all the subtitle info and audio info included in the BD file, and list them out in a detailed way as below. In that way, you can select your needed subtitle and audio track to do conversion at will.
It is really affordable, only $49 US dollars, the cheapest one of all the BD rippers I’ve ever seen.

No.2: AnyDVD HD



AnyDVD HD comes with the same functionality as AnyDVD, but with additional features for full Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD support, including decryption of Blu-ray (BD+ and AACS) and HD DVD (AACS) movies.

By comparison, it lacks some functions that Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper has, namely, it does not support adjusting customized settings like bit rate, resolution, etc, also changing subtitle and audio track are both unavailable. Additionally, when it comes to multiple output formats and file size compression, it nearly can do nothing about them. So to some extent, it is not as powerful as Pavtube, and that is why I put it in the second place.

Of course, the good thing is that AnyDVD HD is expert in removing all sorts of BD protections, which is the most important feature that some other BD rippers lacked.

It costs 63 euros, equals to $92 US dollars, much expensive than Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

The pity is that AnyDVD HD does not have a Mac version, so Mac users can not find an identical solution from it like that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

No.3: Top Blu-ray Ripper



It is capable of decrypting blu-ray disc s and general DVDs to all the popular video and audio formats, like FLV, SWF, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP2, MKV, AVI, MPEG, MPEG4, WMV, RM, etc. Moreover, it supports previewing the movie before ripping, clipping the movie freely, snapshot the images in the preview, automatically shutting down the computer, etc., and supports batch ripping. All these functions are all had by Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper.

It seems that Top Blu-ray Ripper has nearly the similar functions as Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper. But why do I put it in the third place? That is totally because of its inferior decrypting ability. Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper and AnyDVD HD can absolutely decrypt all the Blu-ray files you throw at it, while Top Blu-ray Ripper sometimes can only work on some of them selectively. In another word, Top Blu-ray Ripper can not decrypt all Blu-ray protections, especially BD+, and MKBV > 10.

What’s more, it only supports customizing video size, and audio channels, but not supporting adjusting bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and other audio and video parameters to allow user optimizing their conversion, and also, changing/selecting subtitle and audio track language are unavailable as well.

The price of Top Blu-ray Ripper is $79.99 US dollars, much higher than that of Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper, but cheaper than that of AnyDVD HD.
