Backup Blu-Ray Under Linux


Brought to you by: System76



MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere.

The Process

  • Start Make MKV Before your load the disk
  • Choose your titles – This is a tricky job under Linux. Most the time it’s obvious.
  • Once its done the resulting MKV will be huge. You could keep this, it’s an unencumbered copy of the blu-ray, and is the same quality.
  • Now add your new MKV file to HandBrake
  • Choose your preset based on your needs.
