Blu-ray Ripping with HandBrake and Get Alternative version of HandBrake

Posted by on Thursday, 17 April, 2014

If there is a best Free DVD Ripper, it must be HandBrake. In fact Handbrake stands up against any other commercial DVD Ripper applications. There’s a good chance you’ve used Handbrake before, so I’ll make the introduction as short as possible- Handbrake is a free and open source program that converts DVD (now Blu-ray as well)
movie from real disc, VIDEO_TS folder, and DVD ISO image to MP4, M4V and MKV format for iPad, Apple TV, iPhone, with customized settings, and allows users to config their own settings for the Xbox 360, PS3, and other popular media players not included.

Blu-ray Ripping with HandBrake 0.9.5

Blu-ray ripping feature was added in the update release of HandBrake 0.9.5 on Jan 3, 2011. However, that doesn’t mean you can use HandBrake as a full Blu-ray Disc ripper, because it doesn’t handle commercial copy-protected Blu-ray Discs. In the release highlights you can find that “BluRay disc structure support. (No decryption support)”

HandBrake also makes it clear in its supported sources list- “Any DVD or Bluray-like source: VIDEO_TS folder, DVD image, real DVD or bluray (unencrypted — removal of copy protection is not supported), and some .VOB, .TS and M2TS files.

That mean HandBrake converts neither encrypted physical Blu-ray Disc or decrypted commercial Blu-ray movies in BDMV file structure.

So how to convert/rip Blu-ray with HandBrake?

1) Convert home-made Blu-ray Disc movie/AVCHD shootings.

This is straight-forward. Place Blu-ray Disc into a BD drive that is connected with your PC/Mac, select the disc from the drop-down list of “Source” to load Blu-ray Disc, or select “Folder” to load STREAM folder under BDAV structure.

2) Rip commercial Blu-ray Disc movie with Handbrake.

The first thing you do is to crack the Blu-ray Disc AACS and BD+ protections and extract the .m2ts streams from disc to HDD. A Blu-ray Ripper software will help you do this. Find a guide here.

After that you can load Blu-ray video streams (.m2ts files) to Handbrake. To load Blu-ray .m2ts video, select “Video” from the drop-down list of “Source” and browse to the stream you’d like to convert.

Some drawbacks of HandBrake as a Blu-ray Ripper:

1. HandBrake loads and converts slow. For faster converting speed, a Blu-ray ripper shareware is better choice. If your computer has an Nvidia CUDA graphics card, a CUDA-compliant Blu-ray Ripper could save a lot of time for you.

2. HandBrake exports .mp4, .m4v and .mkv format only. If you’d like to rip Blu-ray to .mp4, .avi, .wmv format, choose a Blu-ray movie transcoder instead.

3. You get a set of video streams instead of a full-length movie in one file only. This has something to do with Blu-ray file system. To get a full backup of Blu-ray movie with everything in ONE file, try ByteCopy.

In short, what is the best way to rip from a DVD, given that the footage ripped is to be used in Adobe After Effects 6.5?

Currently I’m using Nero Recode 2, which rips quickly, but insists on creating the ripped video is a .mp4 file ie mpeg4 video. After Effects will import this, though it flags that it doesn’t recognise the format, so well done to After Effects for importing a format it doesn’t think it knows.

However once in After Effects, the footage is tremendously (too) slow to work with, and outputting it as a different video format takes hours – I left it running overnight to convert 20 minutes of video to jpegs !!! There must be a better way !!! All help appreciated …
