Top 5 Blu-ray Rippers for Win/Mac Ranking and Review:

No. 1 Pavtube ByteCopy – Perfect

Price: $42

Pavtube ByteCopy

The good: Pavtube ByteCopy<review> is your best Blu-ray & DVD copying and backing up tool which can backup and convert latest Blu-ray and DVD movies to any other formats like MP4, MOV , M4V, AVI, WMV, MPG, MKV, etc or MP4/MOV with multi-track audios for playback on iOS/Android/Windows Tablets/Phones, HD Media Players (WDTV), editing software (Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, etc.), and more.

And other than that, Pavtube ByteCopy is also able to encode Blu-ray movies and DVDs to MKV container format with preserving chapter markers, multiple audio tracks and subtitles and make it possible for you to easily select your needed tracks, subtitles when watching Blu-ray and DVD movies with your media players. creating 3D video is supported by ByteCopy. And the windows version can export single SRT subtitle file.

The bad: It can’t output iso files.

The bottom line: A top Multi-track Blu-ray/DVD Converter to all of you with excellent ability to pick up multi-track for playing BD/DVD movies on Media Players and portable device.

Editors’ note: I found little software will keep multiple audio and subtitle tracks when ripping BD/DVD discs until I met Pavtube ByteCopy. Really powerful multi-track preservation function!

The Mac version is ByteCopy for Mac.

No. 2 Pavtube BDMagic – Excellent

Price: $34.3 now

Pavtube BDMagic

The good:

Not any other Blu-ray Ripper can do with all kinds of BD/DVD sources like BDMagic: protected and unprotected Blu-ray Disc, BDMV folder, BD ISO, physical DVD, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file. Pavtube BDMagic supports Blu-ray conversion to popular device formats with pretty much indistinguishable image quality from the original Blu-ray Disc with Dolby Digital 5.1/AAC 5.1 audio keeping.

Besides that, using the “Full Disc Copy” feature, you can copy Blu-ray/DVD’s original file structure to BDMV/Video_TS folder with all subs tracks, audio streams and chapter information included and also save 100% intact M2TS/VOB main movie from your Blu-ray/DVD Disc without any quality loss.

What’s more, it also rips 2D/3D Blu-ray into 3D Videos in MKV/MP4/MOV/WMV/AVI with Side-by-Side, Top-Bottom, or Anaglyph (Red-Blue) and supports adding *.srt and *.ass subtitle.

The bad: Although the interface is easy to understant, it need to be improved.

The bottom line: With decent decrypting capability, high quality video output and considerate backup solution and specific format templates for versatile PMP devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox, PS3, Android tablets and phones, etc), Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper ranks top on the Blu-ray ripping application list.

Editors’ note: Pavtube provides excellent customer support service, including lifetime free upgrade of product and technical support. Users can contact the support staff via email for help and suggestion.

The Mac version is BDMagic for Mac

No. 3 DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper – Good

Price: $60

DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper

The good: When it comes to decrypting/hacking Blu-ray discs and DVDs, DVDfab is about as good as it gets. DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper well deserves its high reputation in decryption, and it handles not only AACS, BD+, Region code restriction, but also Cinavia protected Blu-rays. DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper (3D Plus) is able to rip any 2D Blu-rays and 3D Blu-rays to various 2D and 3D videos, in specific video formats for playback on specific display devices.

By taking advantage of CUDA accelerating, the conversion time is greatly shorted. If you want to rip a Blu-ray to MKV and keep 2 audio language and external subtitles, DVDfab would be your choice.

The bad: It is lacking of DVD ripping feature. The interface is not very intuitive. And DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper costs more than its alternatives.

The bottom line: DVDfab Blu-ray Ripper decrypts and rips Blu-ray title to various video files playable on next generation consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360, HD player like WD TV Live, or mobile devices like iPod, iPhone, iPad, etc.

Editors’ note: DVDfab has a comprehensive forum where you can communicate with other users and get helpful advices. There’s not support email but you can submit your problem to DVDfab.

No. 4 Leawo Blu-ray Ripper – Fair

Price: $44.95

Leawo Blu-ray Ripper

The good: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper comes with the popular feature to convert 2D to 3D for users to enjoy the popular 3D effect and exports various HD and popular common video formats (M2TS, AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG, MOV, MKV, RMVB, etc). Leawo Blu-ray Ripper has stunning trim and crop feature- it trims movie more accurate and crops video more considerate than its competitors. It can load multiple Blu-ray and DVD movies at a time. If you have tons of movies waiting to rip and feel like having a Blu-ray Ripper queue them several movies for running overnight, Leawo is recommended.

The bad: Not recognizing Blu-ray ISO or forced subtitle (if there is). GPU encoding is restricted to Nvidia’s CUDA only. There’s no backup option for keeping original movie quality.

The bottom line: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is a nice tool for DVD and Blu-ray ripping. There may be some improvements for Leawo to make but it already performs well enough for average users to convert/put Blu-ray and DVD movies to iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Wii, etc.

Editors’ note: We noticed that audio quality is noticeably degraded when ripping Blu-ray with Leawo Blu-ray Ripper.

No. 5 Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper – Poor

Price: $49.95

Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper

The good: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper can convert both standard Blu-ray videos and 3D Blu-ray videos to SD and HD video formats such as MKV, AVI, WMV, TS, etc. And it can preserve 3D effects when your source is 3D Blu-ray movie. NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP graphic acceleration technology has been introduced to bring faster conversion experience.

The bad: The app does not decrypt Blu-ray protections and requires AnyDVD HD to be installed in advance for Blu-ray ripping. Not compatible with latest Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. DVD ripping is not supported.

The bottom line: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper does not rip movies from Blu-ray Disc, but if you have had the Blu-ray cracked and saved onto computer hard drive, this tool would be helpful and useful for you to enjoy movies on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox, Zune, NDS, Wii, and 3D smartphones.

Editors’ note: This tool is not recommended unless when you want to convert 3D Blu-ray and keep 3D effect.

Conclusion:

After review this article, you can choose a best Blu-ray convertion program. Just enjoy your Blu-ray movies as your like.
