Ripping Blu-Rays II - Page 73

post #2161 of 5693
Yes it does iso. Think I paid $100 lifetime years ago. Guess they brought it back because yes I remember when lifetime updates was discontinued.

Again my word was "easiest" with no mention of cost.

they also have some type of feature where it will replace the regular bd menus with simple menus. Not sure what it's called but I tried it a couple of weeks ago and it worked. I think it's called speed menus?

the free trial expires after a month no?

Go here, MakeMKV forum, for a temporary beta key when needed.

Nope, every time I launch it it asks if I want to start my 30 day free trial. I say yes and use it, next time I use it it's the same scenario.

I think easiest depends on what you want to do.
Another important point about DVD Fab -- when you have multiple titles for the main movie due to seamless branching, DVD Fab does a real good job at picking out the correct one.

If you already have a lifetime license to AnyDVD then, of course, it is by default the best and easiest ripper out there.wink.gif But if you have nothing, the free DVD Fab is hard to beat and it is not perpetual beta software that locks you into making MKV's. With DVD Fab you get the native files off the BD, as they are on the disk. You can make MKV out of them if that is your thing or you can use Clown_BD and leave them as native .m2ts -- I have never heard of a player that has trouble with native .m2ts, can't say the same for MKV.

I only wish DVDFab would put seamless branch m2ts files into just one m2ts file. That is why I use Clown_BD, I get my one m2ts file and don't have to worry about the seamless branch issues media players encounter when using BD Lite

Once again confusion between easiest and free. Yes free is hard to beat - except when it comes to easiest.

Yup. That's one of the reasons why I use Clown_BD also. The other is that DVD Fab doesn't do anything special to handle forced subs for media palyers that don't do it on their own, like Clown_BD does.

I'm not going to argue with you whether AnyDVD or DVD Fab is easier to use to rip a disk. They are both easy. Preference to one or the other is subjective. IOW, it would be a very silly debate that neither side could win.

This may have already been posted or discussed before so pardon me if I am being redundant:

Is there a fairly easy and fast way to get the PCM layer from a bluray into wav or flac format for streaming? I can successfully rip the PCM layer using DVDFab but it is still in bluray format on my hard drive. This is OK in that I can stream this to my Oppo from an attached hard drive as a bluray ISO but I want to be able get the individual song files to flac so I can add album art and so forth and then stream them from my NAS.

I have several music blurays that contain no video.

Any suggestions or links are appreciated.

Thanks.

DVDFab has a WAV output option under BR Ripper -> Audio. Is this not working, or is there a problem with LPCM input tracks?

I use the feature to make mp3 versions of director's commentaries to listen offline.

I am using the latest free version and it doesn't look like this is a feature that is enabled on the free version. I get a pop-up that tells me it "expired" when I click on Bluray ripper.

By the way, from your experience, is the ripping of the wav layer any faster than making the m2ts files?

I haven't timed it. I start from a hard drive copy of the original and the BR main movie copy function seems pretty fast to me; much faster than copying the original disc. Audio-only is probably a bit faster: it has to read the same amount of data but is writing much less.

There is a link on the Linn forums ......Let's see, where is that.........Oh yes, here it is, with what appears to be a complicated and time consuming method but if DVDFab will rip to wav, I should be good to go.

Guess I will have to spring for the paid version. Looks like I will be buying a lot more of these blurays in the future so I need to get the right "spanner wrench" anyway.

Thanks for your help.

Bill - do you know if DVDFab using the BR Ripper -> Audio method you describe will work for MCH PCM files or is it limited to 2 channel?

Using eac3to you can create a FLAC audio track from any HD-audio track with a simple command line of -source -destination.flac

I don't recall. PCM audio is fairly rare on my titles. You see it with Criterion sometimes. I would be surprised if there was a problem, but can't say for sure.

Have you checked the net to find if there's an audio recording program to use that can record the BD autio file if you play it on your PC?

Thanks but I'm going go with Bill McClain's method for now since I am already fairly familiar with the DVDFab software.

Hi guys,

What's the best method to rip 3D blu-ray's for playback on a Dune HD Max or Oppo BDP-103?

AnyDVD or DVDFab. AnyDVD you can only do a full disc ISO rip. With DVDFab I believe you can do a full disc rip or a main movie rip.

You can also use MakeMKV but you would need to make sure the player supported MVC MKV (right now only the Realtek 1186 players support)

Slysoft, the company that makes AnyDVD HD, has new software called Slyce that will rip just the movie(and will also compress it further if you want). It was supposed to be released before the end of last year but now I hear it's release was pushed back to sometime this quarter. They have not released any pricing info yet.

They have info about it on the SlySoft forums.

Thanks dbone. I should have been clearer in my question, ripping is not really the problem for me, rather it's ripping to a format that will allow 3D playback on my Dune HD Max or my Oppo BDP-103 either over the network from my WHS or a connected external drive. I realize the HD Max can only do 3D SBS but I think I'm willing to make that compromise for the convenience over disc swapping, that is unless that Oppo BDP-103 can do full HD 3D over the network or a connected external drive.

To do 3D SBS mkv I would use DVDFab

Thanks dbone, have you tried this? What did you think of the results? I would have to pay for a licence key for that module of DVDFab so I'm wondering if the results justify it.

I tried it on Avatar and it worked fine (I think it left a DVDFab watermark because it was a trial). I don't plan on doing 3D sbs though, so never went beyond the trial

Thanks dbone. I'm not sure how to phrase my question but does DVDFab make a SBS MKV that is equivalent in bitrate to the original?

I realize that it can't produce a 1:1 copy given that it's creating an SBS version at half resolution. I guess I'm wondering whether the results are comparable to playing back a 3D blu-ray on a TV with passive 3D - if so that sounds like an acceptable trade-off for the convenience of accessing it from my network versus the disc.

Hopefully someone else can chime in, I have never done a side by side comparison of a 3B Blu Ray to a sbs mkv equivalent to say how close it comes to the original

I guess it would depend on your setup! I have a Sony 929 and everything is connected to a pioneer sc37. All my 3D movies are SBS and look amazing! This setup is active shutter! I don't even own a 3D BD player!
