Because of the victory over HD DVD in the format war, Blu-ray disc has established its own reputation in this field. The one who does not have Blu-ray movie collections may be considered out of date. As a matter of fact, BD has become the symbol of high quality movies-high resolution, crystal image, and theater-like surround sound.
However, it’s uneasy to keep a large number of Blu-ray discs in a tidy way, especially when you have hundreds of discs. Due to this, backup them to your home server, or the hard disk of your Mac, or some external hard drives would be a good way to digitalize and store your BD collections. To backup Blu-ray movies, you need a Blu-ray Ripper, the thing is that most programs are unable to deal with BD subtitles and audio tracks in a correct way, or have audio and video out of sync issues, etc. Fortunately, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac is out of this category, it is professional in converting Blu-ray subtitles and audio tracks.
