Review of Blu-Ray to DVD Pro II:
Yes, Convert HD Blu Ray to DVD discs:
Blu-Ray to DVD II Pro is a great and popular Blu-Ray backup software able to perform few more actions besides converting Blu-Ray discs to DVDs. However, the program lacks many customization features and though you will have to spend some money on it, it’s not giving back way too much.
The program was developed by OpenCloner Inc. and lacks functionality. It can compress Blu-Ray movies into one or more DVDs. You can compress a Blu-Ray into one DVD-5 or DVD-9 or two DVD-5s, depending on how much compression it is needed. Users can adjust the video output parameters and trim and merge sections of a Blu-Ray disc thanks to the splitter function.
The program is a Blu-Ray burning software as well. It features a built-in burning engine which works fast and delivers quality results. The engine is able to make as many copies of a Blu-Ray disc as you want once a conversion is complete.
Though the software is not able to convert Blu-Ray into HD, it is able to convert discs into AVCHD, which is a rather inferior version of HD video. Moreover, the AVCHD is not playable on standard DVD players, but is still compatible with some Blu-Ray players.
One of the main drawbacks of this application is the lack of the Blu-Ray decryption. Customers will not be able to decrypt original Blu-Ray discs and will need to purchase a third-party driver to be able to convert this kind of discs into any other. When I say this is the main deal-breaker of this application, I think of all the programs out there that do not lack this feature. Not being able to break and pass through the digital copyright applied on a video is a big deal and I am sure the interest for this application decreases when customers hear about this drawback.
The main advantage of this application is the fact that it gets the basic jobs done in a style. The processes are done step by step and users will not have problems following the guidelines regardless of how tech-savvy they are. The interface is well developed and the design is nice and sleek, allowing users to find every information or process at a click of few buttons.
All the reviews on the internet stated the output quality of this program is great and is considered to be its main selling point. Not only the program works fast, but it delivers high-quality results as well. The video and audio is synced fantastically well and there is not loss of quality during the process. However, there may be a bit of quality loss if the program compresses too much. For example, compressing a Blu-Ray to only one DVD-5 might result in losing some of the quality of the original video.
The application offers a very good deal of support. You can contact the developer directly from the webpage by not only sending an e-mail to the many e-mail addresses available, but also through the live chat. There is also an unique support center where customers can submit online tickets regarding specific issues. This is also very helpful in case you lost your registration code. You will need the code in order to download the application from the internet, so if you lost it, you can recover it through the webpage’s simple registration code recovery.
Overall, the Blu-Ray to DVD II Pro is a decent converter featuring basic processes. It sure lacks personalization features and decryption capabilities, but otherwise this is a decent Blu-Ray backup software that will get the job done. Its main selling point is the output quality and the working speed.
