    I was wondering if anybody knows of a program that I can use to rip a Blu Ray movie? I just ordered a external Blu ray drive to plug into my Mac and want to copy some movies to put into my iPad. I've been using handbrake to copy DVDs, will that work on a Blu Ray movie?

    I don't know whether Handbrake can rip a Blu-ray... but I would think your biggest problem would be decryption. AnyDVD HD isn't available for the Mac - and I don't know of anything else that does such a good job.

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks for that.

    How current are the decryption keys, using that process?

    makemkv.com

    The i'll take the resulting MKV and drop it in handbrake to re-encode it to save space, then use mkvmerge to merge the output with the audio.

    The problem with makemkv is if you need forced subs it spits them out as .pgs files which most players won't do anything with. So any movies that have forced subs i'll rip them in windows with other methods so I can get a sup file. Then I can process that in bdsup2sub and take the resulting sub file to build into the image with handbrake or ripbot.

    I have 500 BD rips so i've been doing this awhile.

    See, that faffing with the subs is precisely why I don't use .MKV. It's a very convenient container otherwise, though, I'll agree.

    It's quick and easy. Besides what else you gonna use? If you need subs you have to do it. No other container i'm aware of will give me 7.1 TrueHD/DTS-MA HD.

    I haven't used this program yet, but it does rip blu ray and you can rip/convert Blu-ray movies to MKV, MOV, H.264, TS, MP4, M4V, VOB, MPEG, etc.
    It is called Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac. There is a free trial from the company, and if you like it is 49.99 US dollars. Just search Google for Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac.

    It's quicker and easier not to do it...!


    I remux my complete-disc rips (35GB-ish) to movie-only BDMV structures (24GB-ish). Takes about fifteen minutes, after the disc is ripped.

    But, with respect to your point, that's true. If you're using a container, it has to be .MKV.
