Ripping Blu Rays and DVD's

The two pieces of software used to rip your media are:

MakeMKV - 30 days Free, $50 after that

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters. There are many players that can play MKV files nearly on all platforms, and there are tools to convert MKV files to many formats, including DVD and Blu-ray discs.

Handbreak - Free, Open Source

Handbreak is a general-purpose, free, open-source, cross-platform, multithreaded video transcoder software application that can used to convert video from nearly any format to a selection of modern, widely supported codecs.

Both applications are available for Mac, Linux and Windows.
