I am completely new to this field. I recently bought a WD-TV HD player. I thought it is a very good way to convert all my DVDs to digital files and have everything ready in a hard drive. Somewhere i read that if I convert DVDs to .MKV files, it will carry all the subtitles and bonus features of the DVD too. My question is how do I rip DVDs to MKV files? Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks. — Jacques”
You can convert DVDs to MKV, but it takes quite a bit of time and computer power to do this. The playback effect is similar. Transferring the contents of the DVD to MKV files, you may need a DVD to MKV ripper. With that application, you can choose to transfer parts (e.g. main movie only) or the entire DVD to your hard drive. As matter of fact, you will lose the DVD menus in an .mkv format.
How to stream DVD to MKV with DVD to MKV Converter?
Step 1—Import DVD drive or a folder which includes VIDEO_TS.
Please Click “File” to import DVD files, you can insert whole DVD folder, or directly drag them into the ripper.
Step 2—Set Output Profile
Click “Profile” button to choose the format you want to convert. Here we choose “MKV (Matroska) Video (*.mkv)” as output format. Most popular formats are supported, you can use it to conduct other conversions.
Click “Editting” to set video effect: Trim, Crop, Effect and Watermark.
