Searching for a tool to backup and rip your Blu-ray Movies to your Mac? Want to keep multiple audio tracks when copying? Here is my own experience of how to make it possible.
Many people may have many 2014 new released Blu-ray movies in hand like me. When you get them at the first time, do you cherish them very much? Are you confusing the dilemma that they will be damaged by playing over and over again? If so, the best and easy way is to rip these new Blu-ray movies to your computer. To me, I want to backup my Blu-ray movies’ main title to MKV. There are so many backup and rip software, either free or paid. Then a new problem came up: Which software should I choose?
So from browsing around the interwebs a little and googled “rip blu-rays to my Mac”, I narrow it down to: MakeMKV and Pavtube. After comparison, I found that although MakeMKV support to output MKV files, it does not allow me to choose audio tracks to copy or convert. Meanwhile, Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac not only could backup Blu-ray movies to MKV, but also support to preserve the audio tracks and subtitles I need. I finally bought it for its flexability. Expect the function above; it has specific profile for output Blu-ray movies for my iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. With a Mac in hand, you could meet all these demands as me.

Let’s view the easy operation together:
1. Install the program and then run it; click “Load File” icon to load the 2014 new released Blu-ray movies. Then you will see the main interface as below:
2. Click the “Format” bar and choose “Multi-track Video > Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (*.MKV)” as the output format. This format could backup my blu-ray movies to MKV without quality loss. Really like it.
3. The program allows me to choose the audio tracks which I need. Just check the audio track with several clicks.
After finishing the steps above, back to the main interface and click the “Convert” button to start the conversion.
When the conversion is over and finds the output files, the process of backup blu-ray to Mac is done. I could enjoy these blu-ray movies on my Mac or transfer to my other devices as I like.
