Rip Episodes from Your Blu-ray Disc

Blu-ray has become the domination in the movie market, due to it offers higher level image than DVD. For many Blu-ray lovers, you may long for ripping all episodes from your Blu-ray discs for watching on your iPad Pro, iPhone X/8/8p, Samsung Note 8, Xbox One X/S, etc. However, ripping commercial Blu-rays is a hard work, as well as converting Blu-ray to a profile with defined settings. This article aims to solve this problem from the forum: How to rip episodes from Blu-ray disc to specific video format. More info are below.

I want to use a profile with the settings below:

  • Can i encode it with VIDCODER like the encode-config below or not?
  • i know, how to create a profile in Vidcoder but i have a problem to recreate the config below in vidcoder cause not every option is named like in the config below.

Please explain to me, how i can create a profile like this. Thank you. I prefer Vidcoder instead of Handbrake, cause Vidcoder is for me more transparent with its options. I have no experiences with other encoding-software like handbrake + vidcoder.
