I am a musician, music lover, and musical fan (and veteran programmer).* I buy DVDs & Blu-rays of any musical or concert that I want to watch multiple times. How do I watch all those discs on my 55” TV via new Apple TV3 with 5.1 sound? I have a quality Receiver, very HiFi speakers.
I got the problem from Google. The Apple TV 3 user want to transfer and watch DVDs & Blu-rays on TV via the new Apple TV3 with 5.1 sound. As we all know, the new Apple TV 3 has no Blu-ray drive to surpport Blu-ray/DVD movies, that means we have to rip and convert Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 on Mac OS X. But how to get 5.1 sound when playing Blu-ray/DVD movies via Apple TV 3? In this article, I will share my best way to watch Blu-ray/DVD movies on Apple TV 3 with 5.1 sound.
You need to go to Google and download a perfect Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 Converter tool on your Mac, which can help you rip Blu-ray/DVD movies to Apple TV 3 quickly and convert Blu-rays/DVDs to new Apple TV 3 for playing on TV with 5.1 sound in HD video quality. Here I show you the best Mac Blu-ray to Apple TV 3 Ripper (as far as I know). It comes up with new Apple TV 3 1080p preset in its latest update, letting you easily and fastly rip Blu-ray movies to M4V for Apple TV 3 and convert DVD IFO/ISO files to M4V for Apple TV 3 with 2 audio tracks- Dolby Digital 5.1 and AAC stereo audio, so that Apple TV could pass-through Dolby Digital to A/V receiver for reproduction of surround sound, and export AAC stereo when going without surround sound system.
