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.264 is that it offers roughly double the compression ratio for the same quality. This means that a video file encoded with HEVC can occupy half the space of its H.264 equivalent with no noticeable change in quality, or the same amount of space with improved quality.
So how to rip Blu-ray/DVD to H.265/HEVC video files? With a Blu-ray to H.265 Ripper, you can easily get it. There are many Blu-ray Rippers on the market can export H.265 video from Blu-ray/DVD ISO images like MakeMKV, Leweo Blu-ray Ripper, DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper, etc. But x265 is very CPU heavy to encode. If your Blu-ray ripping tool doesn’t support H.265 CUDA GPU acceleration, the work of Blu-ray/DVD ISO to H.265 ripping will be a time-consuming thing.
Fortunately, the leader of multimedia software application Pavtube Studio has upgraded its top-ranked Pavtube ByteCopy to version 184.108.40.206 supporting the most advanced hardware acceleration NVIDIA CUDA & AMD APP by both H.264 and H.265 codec, which can give users 30x Blu-ray ripping speed than before.

So, if you happen to have a Maxwell-based Nvidia graphics card from the GeForce 900 series or later, you can utilize your GPU’s dedicated HEVC encoding block to transcode Blu-ray/DVD ISO files into HEVC significantly faster than before by using ByteCopy.
How to Re-encode ISO to H.265 MKV easily and quickly with Pavtube ByteCopy?
Step 1. Add ISO image
Click “Load file(s)” to import the ISO image to the app. After the source video is loaded, you can preview them on the right and take snapshots of the movie scenes you like. Furthermore, you can select your desired subtitle and audio track.
Step 2: Choose H.265/HEVC for output format.
In ByteCopy, you would find H.265 MP4 profile under Common Video and HD Video categories. Choose either one for output. You also can choose HD MKV from HD Video category and set video codes to x265 in “Settings“. Meanwhile, you are allowed to adjust profile parameters like display resolution, bitrate, frame rate, audio sample rate to achieve the best video and audio playback on your device.
Step 3. Utilizing Nvidia GPU Hardware Acceleration In ByteCopy
Now, move your cursor to “Tools” button on the top of the main interface to choose “Options”. Then you can enable GPU Encode acceleration.
Step 4. Change ISO image to H.265 MKV video
When all settings are done, click “Conversion” on the main interface to start convert ISO to H.265 MKV. Once the conversion completes, click “Open” to get the converted videos and copy them to NAS. Then you can stream the H.265 video via NAS on Samsung 4K TV, LG 4K TV, Plex, Kodi, etc.
