Want to enjoy all your Blu-ray movies through KDLinks media player in the best possible quality? With Pavtube BDMagic, you can easily backup Blu-ray into BDMV Folder for importing into KDLinks with high quality.


I got a kdlinks hd700 to replace my Apple TV for playing amlost every format including my Blu-Ray Video Files. It also supports Blu-Ray Navigation Menu, Multi Audio Channel Switch, Chapter Selction, Subtitle On/Off. However, this KDLinks media player supports BD-1.0 and 2D movies only. Is there any way to help me backup all my Blu-ray for loading into this KDLinks media player?


If you are looking for a media player which could play almost all formats (i.e. Blu-Ray ISO, Blu-Ray BDMV, DVD VOB, FLAC), KDLinks media player is your best choice. All models are built in WiFi (a/b/g/n) for easily video syncing.

Backup Blu-ray for loading into KDLinks media player
If you still prefer to use KDLinks Media Player, you'd better copy your Blu-ray movie to 
hard drive as Blu-ray folder with Pavtube BDMagic at first, and then you can use KDLinks Media Player to play the Blu-ray folder without buying another BD player. The video quality is just as the same as playing on Blu-ray Player.

Follow the steps below and you can to 
make 1:1 perfect-quality backup copies of all your Blu-ray movies onto hard disk and transfer them to KDLinks media player for enjoying.

  • Play Blu-ray on any player as you like
  • Convert Blu-ray to any media player acceptable format
  • Lets you enjoy Blu-ray movies on all popular devices
  • Supports adding *.srt and *.ass subtitle
  • Improve Blu-ray video visual experience

Note: Before coping, you need to hook up an external Blu-ray drive with your computer, and insert your Blu-ray Disc into the drive. Keep your networked to insure the software will handle Blu-ray copy-protections.

Step 1.
Run Best Blu-ray Ripper and import disc.

Click “Load files” icon to load disc from BD drive or from “File menu > Load from disc”. I also noticed if you have a ISO file to import, it will recognize the ISO file automatically with no need to run virtual driver and mount ISO files firstly. Good design.

Step 2. Make 1:1 Full Disc Copy

Once loaded, click “Browse” to specify where to send the generated files to. When ready, click “Copy the entire disc” icon to start copying your Blu-ray movie to an intact Blu-ray folder.
