I know this has been discussed on and off for a long time, but I am looking for someone to kindly review the best workflows for ripping and converting Blu-ray to ATV. I just bought a Blu-ray drive / burner (external LG burner), downloaded makemkv, and have the most recent handbrake. I tried to rip an animation ("Open Season") as my first rip, everything was going well, MKV file plays very well on VLC. However, Handbrake could not find a valid source when I pointed it to the MKV file. I am looking for a simple workflow, and I would definitely consider using different software, even consider paying for software if it works well. I'd rather not depend on three software programs if I can use only two to get the job done. I'm considering buying Toast for burning, and I know this can also convert mkv, right? Also considering getting the elgato Turbo HD stick, and I think that does it as well. I heard Perian and Quicktime can do the job, and it seems there are also many other third party converters out there, most of them not free. Anyone try all or many of these or know from reading the forum what works best? It seems that people's experiences are so random in terms of what works for someone may not work for someone else. I have had no problem using handbrake with DVDs, but so far 0/1 on blu-ray. Thanks in advance.
