Do you want to backup or watch Blu-ray on WD TV Live Media Player? Here learn the easy way to convert Blu-ray to MP4/MKV for playback or storage.

I purchase every movie I like on release days (Best Buy knows they’ll see me on Tuesday mornings). That’s being said “BOTH Changers are FULL”. I used DVD-Shrinker for DVD’s. But it had nothing for Blu-Rays. I got a WD TV Live a year ago. Now I want to some software for converting both medias including my Blu-rays and DVDs to play on WD-LIVE (Plus I HATE the start up times on Blu-Ray discs)

Googled Blu-Ray Ripper for a few top 5 and top 10 lists in which Pavtube software was either 1st or 2nd in most every one I come across. Ummm. Price! But after ripping NON-STOP to fill my new IOS device(because WD-Live wouldn’t handle 4GB HD’s) I have ZERO regrets! Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is really a powerful and easy-to-use program in making digital copy of Blu-ray. It can rip the latest 3D/2D Blu-ray and DVD and convert to various video formats for some popular smartphones and tablets as well as editing software. Simple interface and CUDA acceleration will bring you an easy but effective conversion. The following guide will show you detailed steps.

Free download and install it: Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper and Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.

How to convert Blu-ray to MP4 /MKV for WD TV player?

First of all, insert your Blu-ray to Blu-ray drive and keep networked. Now it’s time to import Blu-ray into the software after launching it.

Click “Load files” icon to choose Blu-ray source for importing.

Then, you need to select the subtitle and audio track for output. As blu-ray movie contains multiple audio and subtitle tracks, you could choose your favorite one for output.

Note: Force subtitle can be checked for output so as to help you to read the unknown language and fully enjoy the blu-ray.

2. Choose output format.

Now go to “Format” menu to select output format there. A variety of options are listed such as many portable devices, video editing software, various HD video formats, etc. Choose the one you desired.

Is iOS starting to feel a bit stale for your taste? It’s something I’m hearing more and more as I talk to iOS users, or former iOS users. With some amazing Android phones hitting the market, it’s tough not to get caught checking out the competition — or even feeling a bit compelled to make the jump to Android.

But before you make the change, there are some kinks that need to be worked out to make the process go as smoothly as possible. You likely have contacts, a calendar, photos, and music that you’ll want to bring over to your new Android device. Some of these are going to be pretty easy to get transferred, while others are going to take some work. So sit down in front of your computer, preferably with both devices, and let’s get started.

Before you begin setting up your Android device, you’re going to need a Google account, be it a Google Apps or Gmail account. It’s not required on an Android device, but if you’re going to take advantage of all that Android has to offer, you’ll want to sign up for one. You’ll be asked to log in to this account during the initial setup process on your Android device. If you skipped this step and want to go back and add the account later, you can go to Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Google. This same process can be followed to add another type of account (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.).

Contacts, Calendar and Mail

If your contacts are syncing from your iPhone to Gmail, transferring them will be a breeze. Just make sure you sign into your Android device using the same account you use on your iPhone and make sure Contact sync is enabled. For other accounts, such as Yahoo, you’ll need to export your contact list from the Web site for the account. You can typically find this in settings for your account. Or, some carriers offer a free app in the App Store built specifically for transferring your contacts. Verizon and AT&Thave apps that do just that.

Should you be an iCloud user, you can still use your iCloud account to sync calendars and contacts to your Android device, but you’re going to have to purchase a couple of apps. I have talked about one of the apps before, called SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts; the calendar app is called SmoothSync for Cloud Calendar. These two apps will add your iCloud account to your Android device, allowing you to keep your iPad or Mac in sync with your Android device. This comes in especially useful if you’re sharing an iCloud calendar with a family member and don’t want to force him or her to switch to Google Calendar just because you’ve switched to Android.


Perhaps one of the quickest steps of moving from an iPhone to Android is getting your music collection on your new device. What you’ll need to do is download the Google Musicapp to your computer and point it at your music collection. Google will then store your music in the cloud, up to 20,000 songs for free, and let you stream it on your shiny new Android device via the Music app. Anytime you add new music to your catalog, the Music Manager app will automatically upload and sync it to your Android device for you.

If using Google Music isn’t possible for you, you can drag-and-drop the music on your computer into the Music folder (create one if it’s not present) on your Android device via a USB connection. Mac users will have to use the Android File Transfer app to access their device’s storage.


With the introduction of iCloud and its Photo Stream service, getting photos off your iOS device is easy. Using iPhoto on a Mac, or installing the iCloud Control Panelon a Windows machine you can conveniently grab photos from your iPhone and then sync them to your Android device via USB or through your Google+ account.

For videos on your iPhone, you’ll need to use iTunes, iPhoto, or a file explorer to grab the files. Using a program like iExplorer, Image Capture (found in the Utilities folder on a Mac), or the native Windows File Explorer taking the files off your device is simple.

Going forward, you can sync photos from your Android device to your computer via USB, or by installing the Dropbox app and enabling its Camera Upload feature. Rather not mess with a file explorer? The Dropbox Camera Upload feature is another method to get photos off of your iPhone and on to your computer.


One of the biggest changes you’ll experience when switching over from an iPhone to an Android device is the ability to customize your device. The options for changing different aspects of your Android device are nearly endless. While it’s hard to cover all of the different ways to customize your device, this post covers 12 of the more popular methods. From assigning ringtones to contacts, editing contact photos, to adding custom ringtones and wallpaper, you’ll find apps and guides to help with the transition from iOS to Android.

Whenever you switch from one platform to another, there’s always a headache that goes along with the first few weeks of using the device. Hopefully this guide helped ease the headache a bit and sped up the learning process.


If you are looking for a Blu-ray Ripper, in order to back up your numerous Blu-ray discs, or put your  Blu-ray movies on your tablet or smartphone. Just pay attention to this article. Here, i list the best 5 Blu-ray Ripper in 2013 according to Google Ranking and user popularity. From where, you can clearly learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each tool.

Top 5 Best Blu-ray Ripper Ranking and Review:

Top. 1 Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper – Excellent


The good: Not any other Blu-ray Ripper can do with all kinds of BD/DVD sources: protected and unprotected Blu-ray Disc, BDMV folder, BD ISO, physical DVD, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file. Using the “Full Disc Copy” feature, you can preserve the Blu-ray’s original file structure. Insert the Blu-ray disc, click on the “Full Disc Copy” button, and select a folder to copy to. While Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper also supports conversion to popular device formats, it takes longer. When converting Blu-ray to 1080p HD video, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper gives pretty much indistinguishable image quality from the original Blu-ray Disc with Dolby Digital 5.1/AAC 5.1 audio as a plus. If you enjoy having everything organized and save memory space while keeping the original quality of your HD movies and videos then THIS IS WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR.

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 rips 3D Blu-ray Disc to 2D only.

The bottom line: With decent decrypting capability, high quality video output and considerate backup solution and specific format templates for versatile PMP devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox, PS3, Android tablets and phones, etc), Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper ranks top on the Blu-ray ripping application list.

Editors’ note: Pavtube 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.
