Hi guys, I have a similar question along these lines… I want to extract the audio from my music blu ray discs – the hi res 24/96 tracks. I want to do the same for my music DVDs also – these are both regular DVDs and DVD-Audio discs. What software would you recommend that works on a Mac?

I use DVD Audio Extractor - http://www.dvdae.com

User interface is pretty rudimentary, but works well enough for pretty much every kind of disc including DVD-Audio (MLP coded), and Blu-Ray discs. It'll list all the different audio track available on an inserted disc; like DTS, AC3, LPCM, multi-channel and stereo etc., you just pick which one you want to rip and chose the output format which includes WAV, AIFF, FLAC etc  :)
You'll never get to heaven with a smile on your face from me.

Dear Bros,

To share you need to think of a complete package solution. Its not cheap to rip blurays at the current HDD prices.

You need a NAS with a huge capacity, Any DVD ( to remove protection), http://www.mymovies.dk/products/home-and-essentials-server.aspx - for ripping ISO or BDMV , preferably a dedicated PC with i5/i7 processor and decent RAM size ( 8GB) , an external bluray player to connect to PC and a player like the Oppo -103D ( with jailbreak) which can play ISO/ BDMV files.

Needless to say that you will have to make a 1:1 backup of all your HDD's - since you will have spent a lot of time and effort ripping your collection.

As an extreme case example - The Bond 50 Bluray ( 23 blu rays) - costs USD 125. To rip this to HDD in ISO will take up an estimated 660 GB - 800 GB - say a 1 TB HDD. After you have done all the hardwork of ripping to your HDD you will have to backup to another 1 TB HDD.

At times I wonder if it is just about saving space then why not just put all the discs into a sleeve file! Of course there is the convenience of easy access once you have put them into HDD as you dont have to get up each time and physically search for your movies.

Its a long project plan carefully else you will end up re-doing the ripping again and again.

Cheers ...enjoy your ripping.

Hi bro kingajit, thanks for the sharing.  I also do realized this constraint. How about ripping to MKV, will the quality still be preserved apart from the menu ?

I (well my mrs) have a lot of dvd that would like to rip but don't have so many bray's as yet. So that's not going to take up so much space but might rip the odd concert bray just to have easy access
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

Try MakeMkv freeware..You can preserve DTS Master Audio or TrueHD and subs too. no menu and you dictate what size and compression you want.

I ripped my collection of HD-DVD using makemkv and probably used 400G of HDD.

Also its a pain staking process so I do about 2 titles per day. I was using macmini bootcamp into windows with external HD-DVD Drive by Xbox.

Having said that I only ripped my concert blu rays into my NAS at exact rip into ISO using AnyHDDVD.

Hi all,
Quick questions... Besides iso format, what other format is good to rip blu-ray movies without compromising the output quality too much. Thanks.

I have managed to rip my HDDVD into ISO but I failed to playback any of them with VLC player or DVDFAB player.  It open up a screen but it’s a black screen or a grey screen with some bars on the left.

I may try the Leowo ripper next.

I did mine in mkv mostly. Uncompressed. For concert BR or those that have features I like, will be in BD Folder if it works. I dont do it in ISO.

I believe MKV quality is maintained as long as not compressed. I play mkvs with Zidoo UHD2000, and if I play the same mkv with Panny UB820, video is brighter but probably due to the player itself rather than the file.

Hope it help.

Thanks for the tip. I was using iso format for all my ripping but the file size is extremely huge 30-40GB per file! Hope MKV file works with PCH A-500. Anyone can advise? Thanks.
