DVDFab Blu Ray to DVD Software

Blu-ray to DVD Pro
The 1st Blu Ray to DVD converter on the market. From the makers of DVD Cloner, comes the original Blu-Ray to DVD software. At the moment is it not cost effective to make copies of Blu-Ray movies since blank BD-R discs still range from $15-$30 each.

Convert Blu Ray to MKV or AVI or MPEG

If you would rather have your Blu Ray movie on your PC or gadget like your iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc.. then you would need to convert the video into the format your device supports. For this a Blu Ray Converter would be needed. The DVDFab software we listed above will do this in addition to DVD. So that's a good plus if your looking for an all around Blu Ray Converter.

What is a MKV file?

Well for starters a .mkv file is similar to either AVI or MP4 in the sense that they are all containers for audio and video streams. It is also know as the Matroska container format but that's not important for most of us. What is important is that to play .mkv files you need a compatable video player that offers wide screen support since the video is true HD 1080i or 1080p in most cases. VLC player is currently the best free player around that handles .mkv files. So really it's best to use a Blu Ray copy software to convert to .mkv if you want to store on your PC for playback later. This will save some hard disk space.
