Top 5 Best Blu-ray Ripper programs in 2013 - 2014

Top 1. Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper – Excellent

Price: $34.3

The good: You can import all kinds of Blu-ray and DVD sources: BDMV folder, physical DVD, Blu-ray ISO, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file, protected Blu-ray Disc and unprotected Blu-ray Disc. Using the "Full Disc Copy" feature, you can preserve the Blu-ray's original file structure, buakup Blu-ray disc to PC with one click. Using "Directly Copy" feature, you can backup Blu-ray/DVD main movie in original format(m2ts or vob) without quality loss.

While Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper also support convert Blu-ray/DVD to Android, Apple and Windows 8 device friendly formats (iPad 4, iPhone 5, Apple TV 3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Tab 3, Kindle Fire HD, Suuface RT/Pro, Google Nexus 7 2nd Gen, LG G-Pad, HTC One, etc.), it takes longer. Supporting Dolby Digital 5.1/AAC 5.1 audio as a plus. Moreover, it allows you to trim a specific duration from a movie while allowing you to split movie/divide a movie evenly into multiple segments.

Plus, Pavtube application takes advantage of the NVIDIA CUDA technology and AMD APP technology, and the conversion speed can be increased up to 6 times faster than ever before. Moreover, Pavtube programs support adding *.srt and *.ass subtitles into video and merge into one file for output.

If you want to protect your Blu-ray disc, save space, while maintaining the original quality, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is the best software you are looking for, it can meet all your needs.

The bad: It lets you trim a specific duration from a movie, but not allows you to split movie/divide a movie evenly into multiple segments. It does not support convert 3D to 3D(In their plan, 3D effect is coming soon).

The bottom line: With decent decrypting capability, high quality video output and considerate backup solution and specific format templates for versatile PMP devices, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper ranks top on the Blu-ray ripping application list.

Editors' note: Brorsoft provides excellent customer support service, including lifetime free upgrade of product and technical support. Users can contact the support staff via email for help and suggestion.

Top 2. Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper – Good

Price: $49

The good: When it comes to decrypting/hacking Blu-ray discs and DVDs, Aiseesoft is about as good as it gets. Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper well deserves its high reputation in decryption, and it handles not only AACS, BD+, Region code restriction, but also Cinavia protected Blu-rays. By taking advantage of CUDA accelerating, the conversion time is greatly shorted. If you want to rip a Blu-ray to MKV and keep 2 audio language and external subtitles, Aiseesoft would be your choice.

The bad: It is lacking of DVD ripping feature. It does not support AMD APP encoding. The interface is not very intuitive. And Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper costs more than its alternatives.

The bottom line: Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper decrypts and rips Blu-ray title to various video files playable on next generation consoles.

No. 3. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper – Good

Price: $44.95

The good: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper comes with the popular feature to convert 2D to 3D. It can load multiple Blu-ray and DVD movies at a time. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper has stunning trim and crop feature- it trims movie more accurate and crops video more considerate than its competitors. If you have tons of movies waiting to rip and feel like having a Blu-ray Ripper queue them several movies for running overnight, Leawo is recommended.

The bad: Not recognizing Blu-ray ISO or forced subtitle (if there is). GPU encoding is restricted to Nvidia's CUDA only. There's no backup option for keeping original movie quality.

The bottom line: Leawo Blu-ray Ripper is a nice tool for DVD and Blu-ray ripping.

Editors' note: We noticed that audio quality is noticeably degraded when ripping Blu-ray with Leawo Blu-ray Ripper.

No. 4. Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper – Poor

Price: $49.95

The good: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper can convert both standard Blu-ray videos and 3D Blu-ray videos to SD and HD video formats such as MKV, AVI, WMV, TS, etc. And it can preserve 3D effects when your source is 3D Blu-ray movie. NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP graphic acceleration technology has been introduced to bring faster conversion experience.

The bad: The app does not decrypt Blu-ray protections and requires AnyDVD HD to be installed in advance for Blu-ray ripping. DVD ripping is not supported.

The bottom line: Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper does not rip movies from Blu-ray Disc, but if you have had the Blu-ray cracked and saved onto computer hard drive, this tool would be helpful and useful for you to enjoy movies on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox, Zune, NDS, Wii, and 3D smartphones.

Editors' note: This tool is not recommended unless when you want to convert 3D Blu-ray and keep 3D effect.

No. 5 Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper – Fair

Price: $45.95

The good: By taking advantage of AMD APP, Intel Quick Sync Video and NVIDIA CUDA technology, Aimersoft Blu-ray ripper converts movies faster and saves your time. It rips Blu-ray/DVD into almost all popular video formats (MP4, AVI, MOV, etc) and features versatile format templates for smartphones, game consoles and MP3 players. Its “Backup” function let users envelop a whole Blu-ray movie into a MKV/DVD into VOB without quality loss. If you’re looking for a way putting movies onto a HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, or Motorola smartphone, the Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is worth checking out.

The bad: It does not support Blu-ray ISO or BDMV structure. There’s no option for preserving only forced subtitles. Most Blu-ray Discs are not loading to the software.

The bottom line: Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper handles DVD ripping as good as any other rippers, but the company really needs to work hard and step forward in Blu-ray Disc cracking. Other than that, Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper is impressively fast and helpful.

Editors' note: It seems that Aimersoft does not handle Blu-ray AACS and BD+ encryption properly and the software keeps popping up a message that we should contact customer support during our testing- the customer support staff offers but apologize though.

I take the Blu-ray Ripper from Aimersoft, Leawo, Pavtube, Aiseesoft and Xilisoft and have detailed reviews by Language, OS, Price, Decryption, Import source, Backup, Menu/Sub/Audio Processing, Export, Acceleration, Features. And the final overall ranking shows that Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is the best one. Anyone here applied this app?
