When spoke of Blu-rays, people perhaps think of Blu-ray Ripper first nowadays in that less and less people play Blu-ray only via Blu-ray drive and Blu-ray player. For example, if people watch Blu-ray movies via WD TV, they prefer to rip Blu-ray to a USB mass storage, like an external hard drive, then to stream these Blu-ray movies on HD TV via WD TV through external hard drive. With the approach of Thanksgiving, you may have collected some Blu-ray movies, do you think about ripping these Thanksgiving Blu-ray to External Drive for viewing on HD TV via WD TV? If so, the article will help you a lot.

A professional and easy-to-use Blu-ray Ripper is the key to achieve the goal. I have tried many Blu-ray ripping programs on the market, like Handbrake, MakeMKV, ByteCopy and BDMagic. Among these softwares, the one I like best is Pavtube ByteCopy. Because this Blu-ray ripping app has two features that lead me to love it, one of which is lossless MKV output keeping multi-track audio/subtitle tracks and all chapter markers while another is the capacity to rip region A,B,C Blu-ray to MP4, MOV, H.265, M3U8, M4V, AVI, etc with original video quality.

How to rip Thanksgiving Blu-ray to External Drive for Viewing on HD TV via WD TV?

Step 1. Load Thanksgiving Blu-ray files.

Launch Blu-ray to WD TV Ripper, click “Load file” to choose Load from disc. It will recognize the Blu-ray main title automatically to rip. 

Step 2: Choose output format for WD TV

Here, you have many choices. I suggest you to read WD TV and your HD TV supported video and audio format then to decide to which format to choose. If you are not sure, you can simply choose HD MP4 from “HD Video”. If your HD TV support MKV (WD TV supports MKV), you can choose lossless MKV to preserve all the chapter markers

Tip: When learned the spec for WD TV and HD TV, you can adjust the video/audio bitrate, sample rate, channel, frame rate, etc in “Settings” to get more compatible format for WD TV and HD TV. Otherwise, you don’t need to change anything since the format has been equipped with suitable video and audio parameters although it maybe not the best for your HD TV. 

Step 3: Start to rip Thanksgiving Blu-ray to External Hard Drive

Click the “Convert” button to start converting Blu-ray to external hard drive for WD TV. Once completed, go to “Open” the generated MKV files.

Finally, throw the ripped Thanksgiving Blu-ray movies at external drive. Plug it into WD TV USB port. Then you can watch Thanksgiving Blu-ray on HD TV via WD TV.
