    and convert the movie to a different format, say .MP4? or are you only able to rip the whole disc and keep it all?

    you need a bluray drive for starts (get a blu ray burner, so that you can reburn the backups)

    you need anydvd hd to ripp blu ray

    mkv is a very high quality file,

    anyway if you play around in anydvd hd you'll be able to change the settings a bit, i think all blu-ray rips are currently in 720p anyway;)

    Thats great info who makes a bluray burner, is it external since you need a computer to install the software? Where do you get blank blueray disks?

    well considering sony is the maker of blu-ray id buy there media.. at the moment..in the future the other media producers will be producing blu -ray discs cheaper and better then sony

    as for the burners the speed is a maximum of x2..i have a burner only for testing/READING purposes i wouldn't buy one for a while since the speed is slow+the price and quality isn't to good at the moment a BD-ROM burner isn't something worth getting for a while,

    the cheapest they get at a decent quality is $250

    Sorry i wrote inbetween your quotes, anyway i agree with you 100% if you remember 8-9 years ago the CD technology more than 26 fold in a year.. from 1x to 2 x then top 52x before the DVD's came out.

    I will wait a bit also the media is expensive too.

    Thanks tripp

    Hello tripplite. Just thought I'd add some info. MKV is just a container (a very efficient and diverse one at that). The streams packed inside the Matroska container can be almost anything you want them to be. Blu-ray rips don't have to be in 720p. You are the one re-encoding them so you have the power to choose the resolution. I have a few Blu-ray rips that are 1080p. If I'm aiming for a DVD5, I usually use a 720p resolution. If the target is a DVD9, then 1080p is usually my choice of resolution. :-D

    Ryu is there an option for that on the software end or the recorder end?

    Recorder end... No.

    Software end... You mean software to re-encode Blu-ray rips on a PC, right? I can certainly help out with that. What is your goal as far as what device or platform you would like to play the finished file on?

    Yes software end i heard you need a Blu-ray software program called AnyDVDHD. I would want 1080p to play on my Samsung Blu-Ray connected to my Samsung LNT4681F HD TV via HDMI mosnter cable m1000 Is that the best HDMI cable too?

    hey Ryu, i would like to output my movies to 720p in .mkv format so that the file size is more reasonable. Is this easily done in anydvd hd? like feature only extraction options as well as output file type? a have a mac ... any drive recommendations for this?

    thanks for you time on this

    as long as the cable is HDMI you'll be receiving 1080p quality,
    and yes the software you need is anydvdhd,
    yes i do!
    AnyDVD-HD does not run on mac, they're is only like 1 blu-ray drive for mac at the moment, and any ripper would be completely cr*p, wait, wait until macs have different blu-ray drives at a higher speed and its at near standard , wait until there is a blu-ray ripper that wasn't develop[ed by steve jobs kid (s)

    the only blu-ray burning app for mac i'd even consider downloading would be
    http://ripdifferent.com/?p=7
    but im not sure if it rips or not?

    as for a mac blu-ray drive your going to have to buy a new mac, i dont
    believe that apple sells drives separately ? (once again wait, it'll be cheaper and better in a year and a half), plus burning speeds for mac+pc are the same for blu ray, a slow x2 at max!

    and for future reference

    AnyDVD HD is simply a copy protection removal/ripping software.

    Once you have the Blu-ray disc ripped to your Hard Drive you can either burn it to a BD-R or re-encode to fit onto a DVD9 (dual layer) or a DVD5 (single layer).

    Nero has some great AVC encoding tools included in their Nero Vision/Nero Recode applications.
