How to Complete the Blu-ray to Hard drive for Adding to iTunes conversion

Once I have tried Handbrake, but it can deal with non-protected DVD or Blu-ray only, also I having tested some Blu-ray/DVD ripper and converter for Mac from google searching, I'm not satisfied until I find Pavtube BDMagic for Mac. It is on the top list of many online reviews and is regarded as the most easy-operated and powerful BD Ripping Tool. So in this tutorial, I will introduce and share an easy way to rip Blu-ray to digital format for using in iTunes.

Free download and install it:

Pavtube BDMagic for Mac which can help you convert Blu-ray to iTunes compatible format for playback without any limitation. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.

How to Rip existing Blu-ray library to Apple TV in Mac OS X El Capitan?

1. Load Blu-ray source.

First of all, insert your Blu-ray to Blu-ray drive and keep networked. Now it's time to open the Mac Blu-ray to iTunes Ripper and click "Load files" icon to load Blu-ray source.

2. Choose output M4V format for iTunes.

In the dropdown list of Format menu, you can find several options for output. According to my experience, "M4V - MPEG-4 Video(*.m4v)" from "Common Video" preset is highly recommended for putting onto iTunes.

I was very pleased to find so many M4V file types built into BDMagic. So for Apple TV, I choose "Apple TV 3 Dolby Digital Pass-through (*.m4v)" profile in "Apple TV" column to get a 1080p m4v output with stereo and Dolby Digital 5.1 pass though.

  • Find no 5.1 Surround Sound from Apple TV? Here is your best solution.

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.

3. Convert Blu-ray to iTunes/Apple TV video on Mac.

Click Convert button to rip Blu-ray to iTunes/Apple TV recognized M4V video for playing. Afterwards, transfer the converted video for watching on your iPadiPhone, iPod, etc via iTunes with ease.

After the conversion, click on “Open” button to access to the videos you ripped. Open your iTunes and import the Blu-ray (now in iTunes friendly video format) to its Movies library by clicking File -> Add File to Library.

After that, you can transfer and watch Blu-ray on iTunes or your iPod Touch 5, iPhone 5, the new iPad, iPad Mini, Apple TV 3 and more Apple devices freely. On Apple TV, I browse the iTunes library for the movie and it plays smoothly and at full quality. I don’t think it could get much simpler (unless of course, Apple provides native support for Blu-Ray which doesn’t seem likely).
