Chromebooks are great little machines with a wide range of features which offer 16GB of internal storage and connect to the Google Drive, where you can store your videos, music and pictures. Some of you may have asked for advice on playing Blu-rays on a Chromebook offline.
I need to rip my Blu-rays to SD cards so I can watch them on my Chromebook, but I’m sorry but currently Chrome OS doesn’t support the video codecs for Blu-rays. If I have a Flixster or Vudu digital copies I can watch those on your Chrome OS device since watching Hulu, Google Play, and other streaming services is not difficult for Chromebook.
Since Chromebook owns relatively smaller hard drive capacity, with no drives, you cannot directly watch Blu-ray movies on Chromebook. To do that, you’ll need to rip and convert Blu-ray to digital movie files like MP4 and copy the ripped Blu-ray movies to Chromebook from the PC/Mac’s BD drive.
Must-have Ripper before Playing Blu-ray movie on Chromebook
To finish the task, first you need to download the NO. 1 Blu-ray Ripper- Pavtube BDMagic. The program takes everything from the DVD and Blu-ray, including the chapters, extras, and subtitles. I’ve had success using the program to convert Blu-ray and DVD discs to a format playable by Chromebook, I’ve found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.

The Steps: Rip and Copy Blu-ray movies to Chromebook
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 Pavtube BDMagic and click “BD/DVD disc” icon to load movies. You can also import movies files from Blu-ray folder, ISO.
Tip: Freely select the subtitles for you Blu-ray movies from the “Subtitles” option. Thus, you can watch Blu-ray movie on Chromebook or other devices with Subtitle.
Step 2. Choose the output format
Click “Format” bar and set “H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)” from “HD Video” as the output video format, and, if you like to tweak a little, in the settings, you are allowed to change the frame rate, resolution, bitrate and other specifications of the videos, if the tech terms look taunting to you, proceed to the next step.
Read Chromebook Supported formats:

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 4. Transfer ripped Blu-ray Movies to Chromebook
