As a powerful multimedia storage and sharing center, Asustor NAS provides much convenience for my digital life. The most entertainment it helps me is enjoy my movie collection on the TV through the NAS. 

However, at the fist time I was in the dilemma of how to convert my DVD and Blu-ray collections to MP4 so that it could be accepted by my Asustor AS-302T NAS. I used to use Leawo, but it stopped using for they stole MakeMKV code. Although there are many format converters on the market, I wan to pay for a worthy program. After searching on Internet, a blog named "Top 5 best Blu-ray Ripper Review" enlightened my way. This article lists top 5 best Blu-ray Ripper programs review during 2013 to 2014 according to Google Ranking and user popularity. Finally I choose Pavtube BDMagic which lists on the Top 1 of the review. After using it for a period of time, I really appreciate it for five reasons:
  • Clean interface
  • Quick retrieval of information before ripping
  • Forced subtitles
  • GPU acceleration
  • Didn't steal from MakeMKV

Now, I will show the simply steps on how to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to Asustor AS-302T NAS supported MP4 format.

Things you need:

Step 1 Launch the movies to NAS converter and load Blu-ray and DVD movies to the program. The clean main interface is showed below:

Step 2 Choose the MP4 format for my Asustor AS-302T NAS. I always use "H.264 HD Vidoe(*.mp4)" under "HD Vidoe" profile.

1. The Forced subtitle which I appreciate is also on the main interface and if you check this function, it could show the forced subtitles you chose in the output video.

2. If your computer have Nvidia CUDA/ATI AMD ready graphics card, you can have GPU encoding and the conversion would be faster.

Step 3 Hit the "Convert" button to start the conversion. It may take some time to finish the conversion, and with this period, I just do some housework to wait it.

Rip/Sync Blu-ray to iTunes with forced subtitles for iPad, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV

Do you want to make Blu-ray portable on Apple devices? Want to preserve forced subtitles of Blu-ray on iTunes? This article mainly introduces the way to sync Blu-ray movies to iTunes.

Blu-ray HD movies can give you great detail and sharpest bright colors. There are no details that can escape from HD movies even an aging actress's wrinkle. When you already have a Blu-ray, most of you are not willing to repurchase it with ridiculous prices from iTunes. But Blu-ray cannot be played directly on your Apple devices like iPhone, iPod, iPad, iPad Mini or Apple TV because of lacking Blu-ray player. How to make Blu-ray portable with Apple devices? The answer is to rip Blu-ray to iTunes compatible videos so you can transfer them to your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or stream to Apple TV etc for playback.

What you need is a professional Blu-ray Ripper that can help you to remove the protection of Blu-ray and then convert to iTunes supported videos formats like MP4, MOV etc with outstanding video quality. What's more, some Blu-ray contains the unknown language like Avatar and you cannot understand it without subtitles. So to keep the subtitles for unknown language is necessary for full enjoyment. In this case, Pavtube BDMagic (now you can get 30% off) is the ideal software to you. It will help to rip and convert Blu-ray to a mass of videos formats with fast speed and high video quality. 

Moreover, you can choose the desired subtitle for output and select forced subtitles for some unknown languages. Now let's go to learn how to do it.

How to convert Blu-ray to iTunes with forced subtitles for iPad, iPhone, iPod and Apple TV?

Get your Blu-ray drive ready and insert Blu-ray you need to the drive. And keep networked when ripping Blu-ray.

Tips: If you are running on Mac, please try BDMagic for Mac.

Step 1. Load Blu-ray to Blu-ray to iTunes Converter.

Run the best Blu-ray to iTunes Converter, click "Load file" button to select the inserted Blu-ray and import it for transferring to iTunes. It will take only few seconds to rip Blu-ray. Then the software will recognize the actual main title of Blu-ray and pick it automatically. You do not need to look for the main title manually.

Press the selected main title you can preview the whole Blu-ray movies on the preview window on the right, which works like a media player.

Step 2. Check forced subtitles for output.

Because Blu-ray always contains multiple subtitle and audio tracks, you can go to choose the desired subtitle and audio on the interface for output.

Beside subtitles option, "Forced subtitle" is optional and uncheck by default. Go to check "Forced subtitles" for output. Take note that it will output forced subtitles only if it is checked.

Step 3. Choose iTunes compatible format for Apple devices.

Choose the iTunes supported formats in the "Format" dropdown list. You can go to "Common Video" or "HD Video" options to find what you like. I think MP4 format is better for iTunes.

But, here you are recommended to choose the Apple devices like iPad, iPone, Apple TV, etc directly. Find a suitable format under these Apple devices options.

Tips: For some advances users, you can go to adjust video and audio parameters like bitrate, resolution, channels, etc. Click "Settings" button you can go to check and change them as you like.

Step 4. Convert Blu-ray to iTunes.

Before conversion you can go to "Browse" your computer to find the folder for output files. Then click "Convert" button to get Blu-ray to iTunes conversion started. After a while, you can find the generated file for iTunes quickly via "Open" button.

Now open your iTunes and then sync the ripped Blu-ray movies to iTunes library for convenient playback on Apple devices. In this way, you can enjoy your favorite Blu-ray with forced subtitles on your iPad/iPhone/iPod wherever you are.

No. 4. Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper

Price: $49.95

xilisoft blu-ray ripper

The bad: The app does not decrypt Blu-ray protections and requires AnyDVD HD to be installed in advance for Blu-ray ripping. DVD ripping is not supported.

The bottom line: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper does not rip movies from Blu-ray Disc, but if you have had the Blu-ray cracked and saved onto computer hard drive, this tool would be helpful and useful for you to enjoy movies on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox, Zune, NDS, Wii, and 3D smartphones.

If you’re looking for a way putting movies onto a HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, or Motorola smartphone, the Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is worth checking out.

The bad: It does not support Blu-ray ISO or BDMV structure. There’s no option for preserving only forced subtitles. Most Blu-ray Discs are not loading to the software.

The bottom line: Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper handles DVD ripping as good as any other rippers, but the company really needs to work hard and step forward in Blu-ray Disc cracking. Other than that, Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is impressively fast and helpful.

Editors' note: It seems that Aimersoft does not handle Blu-ray AACS and BD+ encryption properly and the software keeps popping up a message that we should contact customer support during our testing- the customer support staff offers but apologize though.

Best of all, it offers optimized format preset for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to generate best videos suitable for viewing on your tablet. 

Moreover, this program has multiple profile presets for different mobile devices including Android OS, Apple iDevice, Windows 8 devices and more, output movies from either profile perform well on my Galaxy Tab 10.1.

For your reference – video and audio files compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

  • Sound: AMR-NB/WB, WAV, MID, XMF, iMelody, SP-MDI, RTTL/RTX, OTA

Here comes up a step-by-step workflow of ripping Blu-rays to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for playing freely.

Step 1. Load Blu-ray content.

Step 3. If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video codec, resolution, bitrate, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. For watching videos on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, 720p with 2000kbps is just all right.
