Make lossless backup of Blu-ray movie

When creating backup of Blu-ray movie, many guys choose to copy m2ts streams from Blu-ray Disc to retain lossless quality and all the audio streams and subtitles. I want to point out that it is not an ideal solution for watching BD movies. In the first place, most media players do not play the .m2ts file type. What’s more, the m2ts streams are usually not in numeral sequence and you have to sort them out before playing back. A better solution has come up with the release of Pavtube ByteCopy software, which lets you have all the BD contents (video, audio and subtitle streams) in one MKV file without degrading the original quality. The software is very flexible for multi-subtitle and audio solutions. You can either have all audios and subtitles or just keep the ones you choose.

Highlights of Pavtube ByteCopy:

Backing up Blu-ray Disc to MKV in 3 steps;

Decrypting the latest Blu-ray Discs;

Passing original video and audio quality through into an MKV file by default, up to 1080p HD lossless video and TrueHD 7.1 and DTS-MA audio can be retained;

Including more than one audio stream in the converted video (both the main audio and the director's commentary are included);

Copying several subtitle languages that can then be turned on and off at will during viewing;

Step 2: In the dropdown list of Format menu, you can find several MKV options for output. Here we recommend “Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (* mkv)” under “Multi-track Video” catalogue. Because it will save multiple video, audio and subtitle tracks form original Blu-ray in output MKV and you won’t suffer any quality loss.

Note: In default settings, all the tracks are checked for output mkv files. If you wan to uncheck the unnecessary track, click “Settings” on the interface to get it done.

If you just want to keep part of audio and subtitle, just uncheck in file list the ones you don’t want.
