    I used AppGeeker to rip/compress my 400-ish disc BD collection to a hard drive for my deployments. I was very happy with the results, and they update the software relatively often to fix disc-related issues with new movie releases. It's pretty easy for the layperson to use too. I use VLC Media Player for playback.

    Hi there

    Thanks everybody for your replies

    Did a bit more study on Handbrake and think that's the solution - especially for ripping Multi Audio and sub title tracks. For me English isn't a problem but I have a lot opf colleagues while 100% fluent in English STILL like subtitles !!!.

    What I have found though is I need a FASTER machine --Video ripping at High quality is a VERY CPU intensive application.


    BTW I first copy the physical DVD / Blue Ray to a vanilla ISO - de-regionalized and de-crypted with AnyDVD and then p[rocess it with Handbrake to get the MP$ etc for playing on phones / tablets / streaming to remote TV's etc.

    Seems that on typical equipment you just need loads of time to do this --Handbrake can hold the stuff in a Queue and then I can let it run overnight,

    Cheers

    Also it depends what you use for viewing. Many on video forums had wide flat screens on the wall. Any flaw was blown up large. They tended to be sticklers for best quality. I viewed on a Sony Wega 23" CRT type at 1080i. Most conversions looked very good using one pass.

    For muxing it's tough to beat an SSD. I used a program that converted .mkv to .mp4 only encoding the audio. It was portable. I had the program, source video and destination folder all on the SSD. I could wath the progressbar just slide across.

    I read the whole thread and no one mentioned the OPs intentions are strictly illegal. In order to copy a DVD to a hard drive and maintain the copy on the hard drive, you must also retain possession of the physical disc. This federal law also applies to CDs. You must keep the physical copy of the disc, even if it is locked away in a box in the garage or something.

    Agreed, that's exactly what BACKUP means, Having original AND it's copy.
