Nowadays always purchase digital content, but I actually purchased a Blu-ray and I do have a number of older Blu-rays. I’m deciding to rip my Blu-ray collections into iTunes for playback on Apple TV. I will walk through the process for ripping Blu-ray to iTunes. Learn details if you have the similar intention.
Process to Convert Your Blu-rays to iTunes for Apple TV:
First, download and install Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac. The program takes everything from Blu-ray, including the chapters, extras, and subtitles. It’s fully compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan, Yosemite, Maverick, etc. I’ve had success using the program to convert Blu-ray discs to a format playable by iTunes. I’ve found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.
Then, rip and convert Blu-ray movies to iTunes
Step 1. Load your Blu-ray movies
Insert your Blu-ray movies to your disc drive (A BD drive is necessary for Blu-ray ripping). Launch Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper and click “BD/DVD disc” icon to load movies. You can also import movies files from Blu-ray folder, ISO.
Step 2. Decide output format
Click the drop down box of “Format”, through which it is possible to select iTunes highly compatible format like H.264 MP4, MPEG-4 from “Common Video” profile list. If you want to add the Blu-ray movie to iTunes for play on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc, you can also directly select iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or iPod as the output format to get videos with optimized settings for your iDevices.
Tip: Before conversion, you can click “Settings” button right besides “Format” and enter “Profile Settings” panel to adjust video size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3. Start ripping
Hit the big “Convert” button to start converting Blu-ray to iTunes friendly video.
Finally, launch iTunes and import the Blu-ray rips to iTunes for syncing to Apple TV, iPad, iPhone as you want.
