Advantages of M2TS compared to MKV for Blu-ray rips

Diana Joan

When ripping Blu-ray, many people are hesitating whether they should rip Blu-ray to M2TS or convert Blu-ray to MKV. They worry that if you they backup Blu-ray to MKV, they would miss something in original Blu-ray discs but if copy Blu-ray to M2TS, the output file is too large.

"Last year, I made the decision to start ripping my Blu-ray (and DVD) collection to a computer-based format. I chose to rip to MKV files without any re-encoding. That enabled me to preserve the original video quality but save a bit of disk space by eliminating unnecessary subtitle and audio tracks. However, I have recently become aware that I also can copy the primary M2TS file on a Blu-ray disk then this format appears to offer some advantages over MKV, despite the larger file size (44.2GB vs 38...

Nowadays, lots of people have NAS (Network Attached Storage) at home, on which they can save all their important data’s, including multimedia sources for entertainments. So, they can also backup their Blu-ray and DVD movies onto NAS to keep budgets down on buying blank Blu-ray discs. But now, there’s a better standard out there that offers excellent quality at even smaller file sizes. That is to rip your Blu-ray/DVD ISO images to HEVC, aka H.265, or MPEG-H Part 2.

Ripping your Blu-ray/DVD to H.265 for storing on NAS can make you save NAS storage space and get more media playback choice comparing to Blu-ra/DVD to ISO rip. On the other hand, the reason that we don’t choose to rip Blu-ray/DVD to H.264 is that HEVC’s main advantage over H...

Even though Xbox One S and PS4 Pro claim that they support to play Blu-ray discs, many people still meet Blu-ray playabck issues. Why? That is because each game console is manufactured for playing the Blu-ray and DVD discs relased in the same region. So, when your Xbox One S is Region B, you won’t play region A Blu-ray discs.

To play a region A Blu-ray on Region B Xbox One S, you pretty much have two choices — either get an external region A Blu-ray Player — or remove Blu-ray discs region codes with a Blu-ray Region killer. The former way is easy but expensive while the latter way enables you to load Blu-ray to external hard drive to stream Blu-ray movies on Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, Samsung TV, LG TV, Projector, WD TV Live, PC etc freely.

So which Blu-ray Ripper software can act as a Blu-...
