Description: From this article, you can learn how to keep 1080p Blu-ray movies to 720p MKV on hard drive for playback on media player with lossless audio.

I used to think that I could play my Blu-ray movies on my media player. But when I have a try by myself, it shows that I was wrong. After did some research and I found something. Take Windows media player as an example, Windows media player is capable of playing all types of media. However, many video formats, such as Blu-ray, are proprietary and typically require a royalty payment in the form of a license to its owner. In order for Microsoft to include support for Blu-ray discs, it would have to pay Sony a royalty, which would likely mean passing on that cost to consumers. Instead, Microsoft chooses to let the consumer decide on whether to pay to use Blu-ray technology.

Due to this, I searched online for a blu-ray ripping software to convert 1080p Blu-ray movies to 720p MKV while keeping all lossless audio for playback on my Windows Media player. I searched for “was capable of ripping Disney blu-rays” and many blu-ray ripping software came up. I’ve tried some such as MakeMKV, Handbrake and son on. However, although MakeMKV helps me to get MKV files, it suffers a little quality loss, while Handbrake only help me convert normally 30GB file down to 3-6GB. My problem wasn’t completely solved until I tried Pavtube ByteCopy( Mac user: Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac). I really appreciate its profile of backing up blu-ray movies to MKV without quality loss. Beside, it could have worked on all my movies.

Below is the method how I convert 1080p Blu-ray movies to 720p MKV keeping all lossless audio for playback on my Media player.

1. Install and run the converter. Click load disc button to import the Blu-ray movies to the program.

2. Click the Format menu, select “Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.mkv)” as the output video format.

3. This specific profile could allow you to choose the audios you want as well as encode them.

4. Finally click the Convert button to begin ripping blu-ray to 720p MKV keeping all lossless audio.

After encoding process has finished successfully, go into the destination directory and backup the converted files to my hard drive, then I could playback on a media player I like.
