Step 1. Run this best Blu-ray ISO to lossless MKV converter and launch it. Click “Load IFO/ISO” to import Blu-ray ISO image files.
Step 2. Choose MKV format as output, here “Format > Multi-track Video > Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (*.mkv)” is recomended for you.
- In addition to Blu-ray ISO, you can also get lossless mkv from Bluray/DVD for playing with VLC Player.
- Apart from lossless mkv, you can also rip DVD to HD MKV for Drobo 5n and TV.
Step 3. Select audio codec for output. Click “Settings” button on the main interface; you are brought to Multi-task Settings. Here detailed parameters of multiple audio and subtitle tracks are listed and you can change any of them at will. In default system setting, every track is checked for lossless MKV output. If you want to remove one of them, just uncheck it from the list.
Note: If you change audio parameters under “Encode” option, you will get a encoded multi-track MKV file, not lossless multi-track MKV. Recoding Blu-ray ISO to MKV will take a little more time for conversion than lossless output.
Step 4. Backup Blu-ray ISO to lossless MKV.
When everything is ready, you can click “Convert” button to start Blu-ray ISO to MKV conversion. Once finished, go to “Open” the generated multi-track MKV.
The running process will be finished in a few minutes. When the conversion is over, you can click “Open” to locate the ripped files, then transfer them to your media player for enjoying without any limit and easily choose the audio and subtitle track as you like.
