Default Re: Which is the best Blu Ray Disc burning software?

Welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately the discussion of making copies of Blu-ray discs using ripping and burning software is deemed illegal according to the DMCA that supersedes the Betamax fair use rulings. Hopefully it will be resolved in the courts, but at this time it is still illegal to circumvent a digital copy protection (DRM) to make copies. Thus it would be against forum rules to discuss illegal activities.

Now what I do is to use one computer outfitted with a Blu-ray drive to play the movie into another computer via component outputs using a Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR Video Capture device at a slightly lower quality. The resulting h.264 files are recorded in 1920x1080 resolution at up to 13mbps so the HD quality of at least broadcast HD is preserved. The files are much smaller than ripped movies would be so several movies can fit on a single 50 GB disc. The downside: all of the extras are not copied, just the movies, although the video extras could be copied if desired.
