Situation 1:

I want to store my ripped Blu-ray collection on my media server and watch them on my laptops, a smart 3D tv and some android cell phones. Any way?

Situation 2:

I have some Clint Eastwood DVD, how to backup all my DVD movies to home server? Is it possible to convert a bookshelf of Blu-ray movies into my server that fits in my palm? Also, I like to cut and save some of my favorites scenes from my DVDs, how to get it done?

Best Soluion:

Searched widely and I got some tech support for getting Blu-ray movie into Media Server for streaming and playing correctly.

Based on the reviews provided by top ten reviews, I made my decision to try Pavtube BDMagic. I found this best Blu-ray ripper to be most impressive, yet easy-to-use and covers all my needs regarding a program to rip bluray and DVD discs, including storage on local computer, hard drive then stream over a home network for my Media Server and iPad, Samsung Galaxy S5, Roku, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 enjoying.

I tried one called “DVD Knife” but it didn’t work and it wanted to install some stuff on my coumputer that I didn’t want to install. The featurs I like the most is that it is so easy to help me cut and save some of my favorites scenes from my DVDs, i.e. scenes from Clint Eastwood movies with powerful editing function!

If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
