    Handbrake can only output MKV/MP4. I think it is the biggest limitation. Comparsion with it, BDMagic has wide range of output formats and devices. Besides, it even can export the new format H.265 and M3U8. I think it’s great.

    I like that the software has simplified the ripping process into easy procedures. It’s great that we also have option to rip the Blu-ray ISO to playable videos. Seems like a very good software and a must buy for those who likes to watch the video anywhere and anytime. Like me!
