I created this thread for another user; this was originally received as a PM:
I’ve read stuff here and there. From what I understand it’s best to rip the entire BD uncompressed to HDD using something like MakeMKV then use some software like BD Rebuilder to compress to a smaller size.
Can you suggest the best free and pay programs to rip please and suggest the best compressing into a MKV programs too ? thanks.
Don’t worry I won’t be asking you a bunch of follow up questions on how to work the programs, I can easily google that. I just want you op on what programs I should try. If I have to pay that’s fine, I want something good and kind of easy to use too. What do most people use ?
I just want to know the best rippers and the best compress programs. I’m looking for to rip BD’s to 720p and I know to have good quality the MKV’s must be around 4-6GB that’s the size I’s liked too.
By the way because the BDR-2208 has rip lock does that mean when I’m ripping it could take ten times longer to rip ? So for example if it takes 1 hour for the LG14 to rip a BD how long could it take to rip the same BD with the BDR-2208 ?
By the way on a average how long does it take to rip a BD to HDD on average ? and how much longer would it take for my rip-locked BDR-2208 on a average guess if you have too please.
Last question because I have a rip locked BD drive would you still suggest the same programs as if I had one of the LG BD drives ? if yes why ?
Any advice or answers for our intrepid anonymous MyCE member?
