Blu-ray discs show the extremely high-quality picture and give cinematic video experience that gain the upper hand. However, it is not that convenient as streaming videos to play whenever you want. Therefore, you may look for ways to rip Blu-ray and get lossless Blu-ray rip with 100% untouched quality.
Part I. Basic knowledge for ripping Blu-ray losslessly
In the process of ripping, compression is often used to make files smaller. There are two types of media file that we can get from compression, lossy type of media file and lossless type of media file. By compressed, we get a smaller size of file that free some hard drive space, and the smaller-size file is preferred by social network. Ripping makes larger-size files more portable and acceptable. However, there will be some data thrown out during the process of ripping and compression, and on most occasions, lossy files are created rather than lossless files. In order to get smaller-size yet lossless file by ripping, it is necessary for us to figure out what files are lossless.
In terms of image files, RAM, BMP, and PNG are all lossless while JPEG and GIF are lossy. In terms of audio files, WAV, FLAC, and ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec, used by iTunes) are all lossless while MP3, and OGG are lossy. As for video formats, as lossless video formats take up a huge amount of space, people seldom choose lossless video formats as output formats. However, in order to rip Blu-ray lossless, we can choose MKV as the output format.
As the most favourite video container format, MKV contains many audio tracks, video and subtitle streams in a single file. As MKV format help do lossless backup whatever kind of disc like CD, DVD and Blu-ray Discs, many people prefer MKV format as the output format when they would like to rip Blu-ray lossless.
Besides Blu-ray disc ripping, we can also backup Blu-ray discs with two options: directly copy(Save 100% intact M2TS/VOB main movie from your Blu-ray/DVD Disc without any quality loss.) & full disc copy(Backup the entire disc in original file structure with all subtitle tracks and audio streams preserved.) to get lossless 1:1 audio and video from Blu-ray.
