How to export Blu-ray/DVD content to Avid Media Composer with high-quality video for editing on Mac?

Want to convert contents from Blu-ray and DVD discs to a high-quality video format(like DNxHD mov) for editing in Avid Media Composer on Mac? Whatever you are novice and pro users, you can export Blu-ray/DVD to Avid Media Composer easily with Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac.

"Hi I'm an amateur video editor who wants to make some trailer or mash-up to improve my skills. I do own hundreds of Blu-ray and DVD discs but want to extract some clips out to Avid Media Composer for editing; high-quality video is my first choice. Is there any good software for this? Many thanks!"

To extract clips from Blu-ray and DVD disc is much different from playing back directly. Firstly, commercial DVD and Blu-ray are protected from copying, so you have to roll off disc protection firstly; then the format and quality issue.

The workflow seems to be complicated. However, with Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac I'm running, it can't be easier to get high quality DNxHD .mov file from BD/DVD.

Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac is the "All in one" Blu-ray ripping software, simple and easy to use with lot's of presets which I can change.

Which I like most is the DVD/Blu-ray decoder, I don't care about protections, Pavtube take card about everything. As long as your disc has been downloaded, it's decrypted. So make sure your Internet connection is ok.

And it provides multi-track MP4/MOV/ProRes/MKV presets in which I can isolate dialogue and music in one movie if I want.

How to use Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac to rip BD/DVD to high quality DNxHD .mov on Mac? 

Step 1. First of all, get this Blu-ray/DVD to Avid MC Converter installed and insert DVD to Mac. Btw, Mac cannot read Blu-rays directly, if you want to rip Blu-ray, plug-in your external Blu-ray drive to Mac and read Blu-ray there.

Now click the first disc-like icon on the top, click your disc name to load. Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac will detect the main title automatically, unless you wan to rip the extras, do not touch it.

Step 2. The next step, click "Format" drop-down list and choose "Avid Media Composer>Avid DNxHD(*.mov)".

Step 3. Now the most important step to get DNxHD file in best quality.

Click the "Settings" icon (next to "Format"), set bitrate to "High quality". The higher bitrate you choose, the larger file size and better video quality will be.
Also you can free change other settings like frame rate, audio sample rate, channels, etc. here.

Step 4. Well it's all set now. Back to main UI, hit the big red "Convert" to start ripping Blu-ray/DVD to DNxHD MOV in best quality for Avid Media Composer on Mac. Wait for moments, hit "Open output folder" or "Open" to quick find the converted files.

Convert & Import Blu-ray/DVD to Final Cut Pro X with 5.1 sound on Mac Mavericks

This is a detailed guide to help you extract Blu-ray/DVD movie, convert it to ProRes 422 HQ with 5.1 surround sound in FCPX with a clean edit.  

Why I am missing 5.1 surround sound after converting Blu-ray/DVD to ProRes? Why FCP X log and transfer does not work with Blu-ray/DVD? Can I obtain all the languages without losing surround sound in my digitized Blu-ray/DVD movies?

You may have tried some blu-ray ripping tools and run into problems above. To be fair I have not tried many of them but also have problems like this. Hereby, with a successful trial, I'd like to share my experience here.

Firstly, you need a tool which is capable of rolling off Blu-ray/DVD disc protection, then convert them to multi-track ProRes 422 HQ with surround sound for editing in FCPX. On this step I recommend Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac because it’s quite easy to use and work reliably.
How to rip BD/DVD to ProRes 422 HQ with 5.1 sound for FCP X?

Step 1. Download and install this Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac, load disc.

Note: you need an external Blu-ray drive to make your Mac recognize Blu-rays firstly. Insert your discs, launch Pavtube and click the top left icon, you will find it detects your disc and shows the name automatically. Just click it to load.

Step 2. Choose format for editing on FCP X.

Click the “Format” icon; you may notice there’re two options of ProRes 422HQ. One is inside the “Final Cut Pro” the other is inside >Multi-track Video”. The only difference between these two presets is that the former is common one-track preset while the later could keep all your audio tracks (languages). I’d prefer the Multi-track one.

Okay choose “Multi-track Video>Multi-track Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*.mov).

Step 3. Customize V&A settings.

Let’s move to “Settings” icon (right besides “Format”), you will find two tabs one for Video and the other for Audio. On Video tab, you can change target video quality as there are three levels for you to choose. 

In the Audio tab, we can check the audio tracks we need as below:

Just leave unwanted audio tracks unchecked, change audio channels to “5.1 Channels”. Click OK to confirm the change.

Step 4. Start conversion.

Back to main interface and hit “Convert” to start ripping Blu-ray/DVD to multi-track ProRes 422HQ. After it completed, click “Open output folder” to quick locate the converted MOV files.

Why didn't DVD play on my computer?

Hello DVD fans! Have you encountered "wrong region" problems when playback DVD on computer?

We all know that a region 1 DVD cannot playback on region 2 DVD player or computer due to region code issue. It's what film distributors used to control aspects of film release, including content, box office, price or so, according to the region.

Here is a DVD region code map worldwide:

In most computers, region code restriction is written to DVD drive firmware. If you didn't set it properly, you cannot playback most DVDs even if this DVD drive is transferred to another computer. WinDVD offers five times to allow you change DVD drive region code, for example you can change your DVD drive to region 1 to play a region 1 DVD. But note if the number of allowances reaches zero, the region last used will be permanent.

Okay here is a brief guide of how to change DVD region code:

1) Open My Computer;

2) Right click drive-> Select Properties;

3) Select the one you are trying to use -> then click the "Properties" button;

4) Select the "DVD Region" Tab to set the region & change "Current Region" to "Region 1".

If you have any questions of Pavtube programs, feel free to let me know or contact dvdwinsupport@pavtube.comand for help.

How to get Media Player Classic Home Cinema to play Blu-ray?

Media Player Classic Home Cinema is an extremely light-weight free program for Windows. It looks just like Windows Media Player v6.4, but has much more additional features.

Supported Decoding:

MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 playback. Media Player Classic is capable of VCD, SVCD and DVD playback, without the need to install any additional software or codecs.

It has built-in codecs for MPEG-2 video and codecs for LPCM, MP2, AC3 and DTS audio, and also contains an improved MPEG splitter that supports playback of VCDs and SVCDs using its VCD/SVCD/XCD Reader. A *.mp4 and MPEG-4 Timed Text support added. An AAC decoding filter makes MPC suitable for AAC playback in MP4.

MPC Home Cinema also has H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, DivX, Xvid, and Flash Video formats is available in MPC HC. MPC can also use the QuickTime and the RealPlayer architectures. Media Player Classic supports native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats.

Supported Video, Audio and Image File Formats:


To make commercial Blu-ray movies playable with Media Player Classic Homecinema, one thing you have to do is using a Blu-ray Ripper to remove copy protections before your playback. The following contents will give you the detailed steps.


If you are using a powerful PC, you can do the following "Directly Copy". When playback, MP Classic Homecinema will automatically download codecs as needed, so you are able to successfully play m2ts files directly copied from the BD disc, which have the same quality as the original.

1. Load Blu-ray files to Pavtube BDMagic

Three ways are available – "BD/DVD ROM", "BD/DVD Folder", and "IFO/ISO".

2. Select output format

Click on the dropdown list at the end of "Format", then follow "Copy">"Directly Copy".

To use "Directly Copy" option, you need to click the "Title Mode/File Mode" button to switch to "File Mode" first. "Directly Copy" is especially recommended to those who run BDMagic on a slow PC for the sake of saving time. To remain the high quality of a Blu-ray movie, you can choose "HD Video" as output format as below:

3. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters

Note that this option is unavailable if you are using "Directly Copy". Generally speaking, the default settings are able to satisfy your needs basically, but if you have higher expectations of the output files, you can adjust all the following video and audio parameters according to your own requirements.

4. Click "Convert" button to start Blu-ray to MPC Homecinema ripping

As soon as the ripping work is finished, you can get the output files for MPC Homecinema via tapping "Open" button. After that, you are able to import the files to MPC HC for playback. Have fun.

Additional Tips:

More than "Directly Copy" and format conversion, Pavtube BDMagic also supports "Copy the entire disc", which enables you to get a standard Blu-ray structure ready for burning.

Blu-ray Disc Encryptions: Regions and BD Region Hack

If you would like to watch Blu-ray disc without region limitation, this article below the definition region codes and how to bypass the blu-ray region codes built into their BD players.

What are Blu-ray Disc region codes?

Region codes place geographical restrictions on where in the world a Blu-ray movie can be played. For example, a BD system bought in the USA region would play only Blu-ray movie disks with that area’s encoding.

Why are there BD region codes?

The purpose of region codes is twofold. First, it allows regional pricing to be affected by the movie studios. Since pricing will be very different around the world, the system prevents home users importing home movies bought overseas at a lower price. Secondly, it allows the control of regional release of movie titles. Often, for instance, Hollywood films are available to buy on disk in the USA and Europe before other parts of the globe. With regional encoding, the studios can prevent unlicensed movie imports so giving distributors around the world control of supply.

The region codes are entirely voluntary on the part of the studios releasing the disks, and Blu-ray movie releases need not have any region code, so called “region free” releases. If a Blu-ray movie is region free, it can be played on all systems regardless of region. Interestingly, many early releases of Blu-ray films were region free.

Blu-ray Disc regions: Region A, Region B, and Region C

The world is divided into three regions by the BDA (Blu-ray Disk Association): Region A, Region B and Region C. The following map shows the regions as defined.

A: East Asia (except Mainland China and Mongolia), Southeast Asia, the Americas and their dependencies.
B: Africa, Southwest Asia, Europe (except Russia), Oceania and their dependencies.
C: Central Asia, East Asia (Mainland China and Mongolia only), South Asia, central Eurasia and their dependencies.

Blu-ray Region Hack/Crack/Bypass 

In any case, many people are trying to work out how to bypass the blu-ray region codes built into their BD players, but there are rarely successes. But there are another way to play Region A blu-ray discs on Region on B/ C BD players and PS3: Use BDMagic / ByteCopy / Video Converter Ultimate to rip commercial blu-ray discs to remove the regions, and play the unprotected Blu-ray movie from hard drive. Blu-ray players and PS3 boxes support playback of M2TS, MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV, etc.

Apple moves iOS to car dashboards

Apple's iPhone user interface will soon be seen on car dashboards with the rollout of CarPlay.
It will allow apps such as maps, music and calls running under iOS on the driver's iPhone to run on the car dashboard.
Car makers such as Mercedes-Benz and Volvo demonstrated the touch control user interface at the Geneva Motor Show this week.
"CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimised distraction. We have an amazing lineup of auto partners rolling out CarPlay," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing.
Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri voice-activation is used to access contacts, make calls or listen to voicemails.

"When incoming messages or notifications arrive, Siri provides an eyes-free experience by responding to requests through voice commands, by reading drivers' messages and letting them dictate  responses or simply make a call," said Apple.

Similarly iPhone maps apps and iTunes music library will be displayed on the dashboard. It also supports select third-party audio apps including Spotify.
Apple says CarPlay is available as an update to iOS 7 and works with  Lightning-enabled iPhones, including iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5.
It will be available in select cars shipping later this year.
