What a time-consuming job Blu-ray to HEVC ripping is! You want to protect Blu-ray and your DVD discs so you plan to backup your physical media. You want smaller size backup that’s why you choose to rip DVD and Blu-ray to H.265. But, if your PC is a low-end one, it will be a headache to encode Blu-ray and DVD to HEVC. Fortunately, if your graphics card supports the Nvidia® CUDA™, you will be able to enhance the HEVC encoding speed of Pavtube ByteCopy by using the GPU of the graphics card. Pavtube ByteCopy v4.9..0.0 or a higher version supports the Nvidia CUDA H.265 encoder, so Pavtube ByteCopy users can rip BD/DVD to HEVC in high speed, with a high compression ratio, and in high quality. 

HEVC vs H.264 – Which one is better?

HEVC (H.265) is better at compression than H.264 (The video quality of HEVC is better than H.264 if the file size is the same. The file size of HEVC is smaller than H.264 if the video quality is the same). 

However, some media players don’t support HEVC and HEVC uses more CPU usage than H.264. 

Users have to choose the proper codec to meet their needs.

2017 Fastest HEVC Encoder Recommend

Anyway, if you want to use NVIDIA CUDA to encode HEVC videos, you’ll need a Blu-ray to HEVC Encoder. The fastest HEVC encoder in the marker that can rip both Blu-ray and DVD to H.265/HEVC will be Pavtube ByteCopy. The newest version you can use for Blu-ray to HEVC encoding is version 4.9.0.0 and 4.9.1.0 right now. The interface for Pavtube ByteCopy is quite intuitive. Even though you have no experience on Blu-ray ripping, you can know the each next step according to the instructions on the main interface.

With Pavtube ByteCopy, you can rip Blu-ray and DVD to H.265/HEVC MP4 and MKV up to 30x times speed using Nvidia GPU hardware acceleration and convert Blu-ray and DVD to H.264 MP4, MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, TS, MOV, M4V, etc by up to 500% speed with NVIDIA CUDA acceleration than the same action with no acceleration.

Comparison Table between Non-H.265 CUDA and H.265 CUDA

Here below is a comparison table of our own experiment result, which shall give you a better understanding of how H.265 CUDA works, in a more direct and visual way. Check it out.
