    Acrok Video Converter Ultimate is the best Blu-ray ripping software I think. Because I can convert any video files via this program. Rip Blu-ray and DVD to MP4/MOV/M4V, convert camcorder HD MXF, MTS, MOV, MP4 recordings to ProRes/DNxHD/AIC/H.264 . In addition, this Blu-ray backup software supports 2D to 3D conversion. Amazing.

    Backing up my Blu-ray collection is super important to me. Total control is what I get with Acrok Blu-ray ripping software. I download a lot of movies online, many of which come with subtitles I don’t need. Now I can remove subtitles, cut out parts that are unsuitable for my children and much more.

    I’d been wanting to add subtitles to my Blu-ray collection for a long time and give copies to my grandpa, who only speaks French. This little tool let me rip, open and insert subtitles into the Blu-ray file. Awesome.

    With this software, I can convert MKV and AVI MV to MP3 for playing on my iPod, Thanks. The backuping and ripping functions are useful. This is a effective way to protect my purchased BD Discs.

    I’ve heard somewhere that using Blu-ray drives for data backup of your computer is not a good idea. Does anybody know why?

      I think mainly optical backups are “out of date”. I actually considered buying a Blu-Ray burner and some Blu-Ray discs instead of HDDs because HDDs are at an all-time low for quality… In the end, I opted to get some cloud storage space. I can’t backup my whole hard drive or anything, but I can backup the important things.
