MKV format or Matroska is a free open standard container format which can hold unlimited number of video, audio, and subtitle tracks. Ripping Bluray discs has always been a difficult process, most community forums have command line tools and long steps which make it complicated for novice users to convert Bluray to other formats.
Blurip is an opensource portable tool which makes it easier to convert bluray to mkv format in one click. Before you begin, you need to download and install all the required 3rd party tools and then define the path to these external tools, all from within the app.
The needed tools are:
- Haali Media Splitter, Eac3to
The links along with additional useful tools are listed under the Needed Tools tab. Once installed, head over to the File Paths tab and enter the path to each tool.
The tabbed interface makes it easier to set up the program, enter the required information and tweak the settings from General Settings and Encoding Settings tab. The Profiles can be added and deleted from the Profiles tab. Once done, select the Bluray video to convert from Stream Selection tab and define the output settings from Process tab.
It is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. A portable tool can technically work on all versions of OS but you have to consider the external tools as well which are required for this app to work.
