Rip Blu-ray,DVD movies on portable devices and convert DRM-videos on Mac

In this article I will share the process of ripping Blu-ray/DVD movies to play on iPad, Surface, Android, PC and Xbox 360, meanwhile you can also learn an easy way to remove DRM protection from Amazon, iTunes and Google Play videos.
The reason I write this guide is I was in the same dilemma few months ago before I find Pavtube BDMagic for Mac– rip BD/DVD for playing on portable devices on Mac (Mac Mavericks 10.9 included), and ChewTune for Mac – the best Mac DRM removal and record tool I ever used.

Part I: First of all, let’s talk about the way ripping Blu-ray and DVD movies to PC, Xbox 360 and portable tablet like iPad, Surface, Android for playback on Mac.

After I searched widely and I got some tech support for converting Blu-ray and DVD movies to Android/Apple/Windows device video on Mac 10.9 Mavericks & Mountain Lion without losing quality in a simplest way, I find more than one people suggest to rip Blu-ray/DVD to MP4 format which is the most compatible format for portable devices on Mac with BDMagic for Mac.

It is an ideal Mac app for you to rip Blu-ray, DVD, ISO/IFO files to MP4 video. Plus, it also can help you to convert Blu-ray, DVD to almost any other common video format such as VOB, FLV, WMV, AVI, MKV or backup the BD, DVD keeping the whole movie structure as you need. Now are on 30% off for Christmas Special.

Top Blu-ray Ripper for Mac Review: Rip Blu-ray Movie on Your Mac

Users Reviews:

We are a modern normally family with different devices. I had the Mac Version which worked really well for me. I have lots of Blu-ray, DVD and other legally bought films which I want to play over my home network on tablet devices. Between us my family and I have iPads, Surface, Android, PC's and Xbox's so disk format, particularly with copy protection means they would normally be useless and if I had not brought Pavtube product to the market. I would not have purchased the DVD's and Blu-Rays. With Pavtube BDMagic for Mac, I can freely enjoy 2D/3D Blu-ray/DVD on my portable devices with ease. So ironically Pavtube actually help the movies studios sell more as without its solution I would not buy their films.

Below is how I rip my Blu-ray and DVD movies to MP4.

Now just download it and follow the tutorial below.

1. Click the top left icon to import Blu-ray/DVD discs correspondingly.

Click the drop-down list on the bottom; choose proper presets according to your device model. You can see columns for normal devices.

Basically the “Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4)” is a universal format for your tablets and smartphones or NAS devices.

Or depends on your device, you can choose a suitable video format from “Android” or "iPad" or "Windows" catalogue, or you can use the small search box to locate your device quickly.

2. Check the pencil-like icon to activate the editing function. Here you can trim video for your needed length, crop video to get rid of annoying black edges, join multiple video clips into one, add text/image watermark and add subtitles.

For example, if the original Blu-ray/DVD movie has no subtitle or the subtitles you need, you can download it from website and then add it into the output videos for full enjoyment with this software.

Notice the small triangles under the progress bar? Click them to adjust frame by frame easily.

3. If you want to output video in specific size, bitrate or frame rate, click “Settings” (which is marked as “3″) and change the digits as you need. Pls notes that the video quality improved with the bitrate, but not the higher the better. You need to consider your device configuration as the high bitrate required higher read&write speed.

4. Ok now click the “Convert” button to start converting/copying Blu-ray/DVD to iPad, Surface, Android, PC and Xbox 360 for playing or streaming. After conversion, click “Open” to locate the converted video directly.

The Windows version is Pavtube BDMagic, it’s also on 30% off to thanks for your great support;

Part II. As iTunes, Amazon or Google Play videos are no good due to the DRM protection which will lock you for playback directly, so I'm considering about how to remove the DRM protection from these videos to unprotected mp4 files so as to play on my device easily.

I use Pavtube ChewTune for Mac, perfect tool to legally remove DRM protection from purchased iTunes movies, Amazon Instant Videos, and digital copies.

Three simple steps for recording and converting DRM videos to portable devices

1. Import a single DRM video or a folder to free downloaded Pavtube DRM removal.

2. choose optimized output formats. I can find at least one profile for every smartphone or tablet I have.

What about your device not listed? Don’t worry, choose similar device and change presets to suit the needs of your device, which can be easily handled.

2. Last but not least, hit the “Convert” icon to start DRM removing process.

It would take as long as the source movie length for the whole DRM removing conversion  process since Pavtube ChewTune for Mac records source DRM videos in 1:1 video and audio quality. I would prefer to start converting my DRM videos before bedtime, so it could run overnight and the conversion would be successfully complete when I get up, which it would not interface my spare time.

More info for converting DRM protected videos:

Make sure that your computer is authorized for source videos, that is to say you can play the source iTunes movies in iTunes, play Amazon and digital copy using Windows Media Player.
Allow the audio driver installed during the Pavtube ChewTune for Mac installation.

Good News! Pavtube Studio is offering money saving bundles for ChewTune for Mac. With either bundle package, not only can you save money, you will get the most powerful combination from Pavtube to handle Blu-rays, DVDs, regular videos as well as DRM protected videos files.

Surface 2 has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. You can play 1080P video on Surface 2's 10.6-inch screen freely. Recently I have fallen in love with Iron Man 3 DVD movie, and now I have got some "Iron Man 3" DVD ISO IFO collections, how to get them playable on my Surface 2?

Aside from get videos or movies from Windows store, I can also try to play some personal movie files on Surface 2. But as I know Windows 8.1 RT does not support DVD movie playback. Thus, it will be hard work to get DVD ISO/IFO files to Surface 2. This means these DVD ISO/IFO files from "Iron Man 3" must be encoded to a Surface 2 compatible format before having free DVD ISO/IFO movie enjoyment on Surface 2 tablet. This guide I will share my easy way to play "Iron Man 3" DVD IFO/ISO video on Surface 2.

Pavtube DVDAID is specialized in ripping DVD ISO/IFO, DVD folder, DVD including commercial DVD with protections like BD+, region code. What’s more, you do not need to worry about the ripping and converting speed. It is excellent for it and it supports CUDA acceleration technology, which will provide you 6 x faster speeds. Go to get it and freely enjoy your favorite DVD ISO/IFO movies like "Iron Man 3" on Surface 2. If you are a Mac user, please turn to Pavtube DVDAID for Mac.

3 Steps to Rip "Iron Man 3" DVD ISO/IFO image files to Surface 2 support video format

Step 1. Run this Top DVDAID, as the DVD ISO/IFO to Surface 2 Converter.

Click "Load file" to choose Load IFO/ISO file from "Iron Man 3". It will recognize the ISO image file automatically so that you will not have to run virtual drive to mount the ISO any more.

Step 2. Select Surface 2 compatible format.

Click the drop-down list and choose "“Windows > Microsoft Surface Windows RT/Pro H.264 Video (*.mp4)" as the best profile for Surface 2.

Tips: Customize video specs. (Optional)

Click "Settings" to free choose output video size, bitrate, frame rate and other specs. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching DVD (ISO/IFO) movies on Surface 2, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right.

Step 3. Start the "Iron Man 3" DVD ISO/IFO conversion.

When everything is OK, just press the "Convert" button to start the "Iron Man 3" DVD ISO/IFO to Surface 2 MP4 conversion. It will not take much time. Just wait for the conversion process to get done.

Surface 2 Movie Playback Tips- Watching Blu-ray movies on Surface 2

This article is mainly talking about how to rip Blu-ray movies to Surface 2 support format. Help you enjoy various Blu-rays on the latest Microsoft Surface 2. 

Microsoft upgraded the processor in the Surface 2, making it far faster and more responsive than the original Surface RT. The tablet also got a much-needed bump to 1080p resolution, and—like the Surface Pro 2—a redesigned kickstand that makes the device easier to use on your lap. Overall, it’s thinner, lighter, and longer-lived than the Surface RT. Microsoft also includes a year of free Skype calls with the Surface 2, along with a free, two-year 200GB boost to your SkyDrive storage. Part of the Surface 2’s high price can no doubt be attributed to its 10.6-inch, 1080p display. While the Surface 2’s big screen pushes the productivity ideal, there’s no denying that the market has largely moved to smaller, 7- to 8-inch designs.

Do you want to play Blu-ray movies on your Microsoft Surface 2? There is no blu-ray drive for this Windows 8.1 RT tablet, and the Blu-ray videos do not play on Surface 2. You need a program to help you remove the copy protections on commercial Blu-ray.

A free way is Handbrake. And I usually use Pavtube BDMagic, a powerful and simple tool including BDMagic, DVDAID or and ISO/IFO File Converter, which can rip latest 2D/3D Blu-ray to Surface 2 friendly playback format in few steps, here is our customer's experience

The operation is simple. Few clicks you will make it done. Just follow me to get the fascinate solution to convert Blu-ray movies to Microsoft Surface 2.

Step 1. Download and run Pavtube Surface 2 BDMagic or BDMagic for Mac, load your Blu-ray movies into it.

Pavtube BDMagic will detect and list the main title (the full length of this movie) and check it by default. So just keep it untouched and let’s move on to Step 2.

Step 2. Highlight the movie title you want to rip, and then you can click the dropdown menu below “Subtitles” and “Audio” respectively, you will see many presets for difference devices and programs. In this case, you are suggested to select “Microsoft Surface Windows RT/Pro H.264 Video (*.mp4)” as the best MP4 preset for Surface 2.

Step 3. Adjust specs or edit video before conversion (Optional).

Click “Settings” button to configure file quality for Surface Pro 2. After entering “Profile Settings” panel, you are allowed to adjust video and audio parameters such as bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and more.

The recommended video settings for Surface Pro 2:

Video Codec: h264
Size (pix): 1920x1080
Bitrate (kbps): 1500~2500
Frame Rate (fps): original

If you prefer a much better video quality and don’t mind the output file size, you can rise the video bit rate higher than 1500. Generally speaking, the higher video bit rate will result in the larger output file size, and vice versa.

Step 4. Start conversion.

Now hit the big red “Convert” to start converting Blu-ray movies to Surface 2 MP4 with best video quality for playback.

After the conversion, you can get the converted Blu-ray rips in .mp4 format by clicking the “Open” or “Open output folder” icon and transfer the result videos to your Surface 2 via USB cable.

2. Insert the USB flash drive or memory card into Surface.
3.Tap or click the notification that appears in the upper-right corner of the screen.
