DVD and Blu-ray to MKV converter and network streamer
  4 reviews

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters.
Additionally MakeMKV can instantly stream decrypted video without intermediate conversion to wide range of players, so you may watch Blu-ray and DVD discs with your favorite player on your favorite OS or on your favorite device.
NOTE: users of this software must accept the terms of the "End User License Agreement".

Can't use the current version packaged for Linux Mint. But works great if you download it from the site. So, this version needs an update.

The entire main point of Makemkv is ripping your purchased movie discs to an easy to work with simple tried and true container and format ( .mkv) while preserving 100% original quality and being able to select specific audio and subtitle tracks as you wish as well as specific video titles ( for the discs that have multiple titles). It ISN'T meant as a Handbrake competitor. If it was, makemkv devs would have BUILT IN a tool that allows you to shrink the size of the movie/titles while allowing some settings in which to tweak that like you can in Handbrake. People need to learn the differences in software tools so they don't post incorrect or incoherent medium or negative reviews about either the software tool as a whole....or parts of it while comparing it to something it isn't meant to compete with.

Works nicely if you need to quickly convert a bluray library to a format that can be read by plex. Not a whole lot configuration options.

Too quick to do what fo for "Handbrake" takes a lot of time. It is good if you are in a really big hurry. I has not many configuring options. Not excelent results. Easy to use.
