Easy Steps to Rip Blu-ray with Dolby TrueHD 7.1
Step 1. Add Blu-ray movies
Insert Blu-ray Disc into your external or internal BD drive and launch the Blu-ray Ripping program. Click “disc” button to import Blu-ray movies for converting/copying.
Step 2. Choose output format keeping Dolby TrueHD audio
To pass-through original Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio for Blu-ray movie ripping, just select “Lossless/encoded multi-track MKV (* mkv)” from “Multi-track Video” quality in “Format” box.
In this way you get lossless audio streams as they are burned into BD. Dolby TrueHD track will be copied and packed into generated MKV file without transcoding. But note that you will not get TrueHD 7.1 audio if the original BD does not contain Dolby TrueHD audio.
Tip: Click “Settings” to enter Multi-track video profile window; switch to “Video” and find the “Encode” box which is unchecked by default, so if you want a lossless MKV copy, do not touch it. The switch to “Audio”, check wanted audio track; so does the “Subtitles”.
Step 3. Start ripping Blu-ray with Dolby TrueHD audio
Before start conversion, select subtitles you want keep with the output video from the option. Then, hit the big Convert button, it will start converting Blu-ray movies to lossless mkv videos with the original Dolby TrueHD audio saved. That’s it! Your Blu-ray video will now be encoded and a few hours later you will have a great high definition video file with preferred TrueHD audio passthrough through Plex.
