    Make MKV is $50? I could have sworn it was $40. Did they raise the price recently?

    It's still in beta so it should be free. Where are you finding $40/$50?

    The download page states that you can download it again to reset the timer.

    I got a Blu-ray player christmas and I downloaded it to rip my blu-ray library so I still have 29 days left. :)

    Once the trial period is over (and it only applies to BR capability), Mike (MakeMKV developer) will post a new registration code for you to put in. That will give you another 30 days. Have been doing this for a couple years now. However, I strongly urge everyone who like that app to support his efforts by purchasing the program.

    I purchased it in April 2011. It was $50 back then, too.

    Agreed. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of my $50. No regrets whatsoever.

    I don't think Handbrake does blu-rays.

    Ok. In order to do blu-ray, you must also have a blu-ray drive, correct?

    Wait....you've been accepting free codes for a couple years, but you urge others to support the developer and purchase the program? :confused:

    Yes, I know that seems odd. I am uncomfortable with the 3rd party that Mike uses for handling payments. It's a personal thing. Others, are very comfortable with the vendor. If he were to work through a different vendor, say PayPal, etc, I would buy in a minute.

    So to all those who are ok with who he uses for payment, I encourage you to support the product and I certainly would if payments were made through a more traditional route.

    Completely different. makemkv doesn't convert the audio or video in any way. It just puts it into a different container and does a good job of finding the various components and audio tracks on a disc that may contain several TV episodes, or a movie and some special features, commentary or other language tracks, etc. If you had a DVD or Blu-ray you wanted to put on your hard drive and make iTunes/Apple TV compatible you could:

    1. Use MakeMKV to rip from the disc.
    2. Use MP4Tools to convert the MKV to MP4, without recompressing the video.
