Shrink Blu-ray from 50GB to 25GB

Leave a comment

Many movie fans who have gathered a house of Blu-ray collections would like to backup and burn their Blu-rays for protection and space saving. While movies listed as 50 GB cannot fit on a 25 GB disc without losing quality. So many people ask the way to shrink 50GB Blu-ray to 25GB:

"I am trying to figure out how to “shrink” down a regular Blu-Ray movie, so that I can burn it to a single layer 25gb BD-R disc for playback as BD50 is too expensive. How can we shrink BD50 to BD25 keeping all features?"

compress blu-ray

I happened to get some experiences that when ripping from a BD50 to a BD25, a typical movie will fit onto a BD25 without actually re-encoding the video at all. So I maybe can give an answer to the help seeker. There is no software on the market that can fulfill backing up Blu-ray and burning video to Blu-ray at the same time. So to compress a BD 50 to BD 25, you have to use two software to achieve these two parts: Part one: Backup 50 GB Blu-ray to 25GB video without quality loss; Part two. Burn copied Blu-ray into 25 GB Blu-ray disc 

Part I: Compress a 50GB Blu-ray into a video under 25GB

Is there a way to compress a 50gb movie to fit on a 25 gb disc without losing detail on Mac? No matter how powerful it is while decrypting of protected Blu-ray movies, when it comes to compress file size of Blu-ray movies, AnyDVD HD can do nothing with it.

Luckily we found Pavtube BDMagic for Mac which is a magic tool to cut down your 50GB bluray movies to video under 25GB below which can fully meet users’ further needs. With its clean interface, fast converting speed and good video quality, compressing Blu-rays/DVD to playable format for various purposes will be simply finished within a few clicks. Now, let’s together have a look at how to compress file size of Blu-ray movies via Pavtube BDMagic for Mac.

The app is also available for Mac OS – Get Pavtube BDMagic for Mac if you work with OS X 10.5/10.6/10.7/10.8/10.9/10.10/10.11/10.12.

FYI: If you want to rip BD/DVD with keeping all the audio tracks (language) and soft subtitles, here’s another choice for you: Pavtube ByteCopy/ByteCopy for Mac.

Note: A BD drive is needed for Blu-ray compressing and ripping.

Step 1: Load Blu-ray disc

This is the key point of the entire procedures, click “Settings” button, and then the following interface will show up, on which you are able to adjust bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, aspect ratio, etc. to make control of the output file size and quality.

mp4 format settings

To compress the file size into video under 25GB, what you should do is changing the figures of these options to be smaller only. Look at the target file size, keep it under 25GB. One more thing you must be sure that there will be some quality loss if you compress them to be a much smaller size, which means you’d better make a balance between the size and image quality. At least the output video quality should be acceptable by yourselves.

Step 4: Start compression and conversion

As long as the former three steps are set well, then you can click “Convert” button to start Blu-ray ripping, at the same time, the compression task of Blu-ray file size is underway as well.

Leave a comment

"So I have been seraching for over an hour and haven’t been able to find a solid post on this: How do I convert .Tivo files to something I can watch it with QuickTime on MacBook Pro? So is there any program or a method for conversion?"

"I converted a .tivo to MPEG using TVHarmony Autopilot. When I try to view the MPEG in Quicktime I hear all the audio but the video freezes on the first frame. I am using Quicktime 7.7.9 with the MPEG playback component installed."

Before solve the problem, you should know that what video and audio files QuickTime can play:

MPEG-2 (OS X Lion or later), MPEG-4 (Part 2), H.264, H.263, H.261


iTunes Audio (.m4a, .m4b, .m4p), MP3, Core Audio (.caf), AIFF, AU, SD2, WAV, SND, AMR

Rip DVD to Plex in Lossless/Uncompressed MKV Format

Leave a comment

Plex is popular for its powerful media organization and sharing function. Due to this advantage, many people tend to copy DVD collections to Plex then they can stream DVD movies on HD TV via Plex without bothering DVD discs and DVD Player again. But in the DVD ripping process, it is likely to lose the original video quality, therefore, many people searched on the google for the way to copy DVD to Plex with lossless/uncompressed files:

Just wondering what the easiest, quickest way would be to get 800-900 DVD’s ripped and put into some format so I can share  them into plex? I am running a MAC and PC , Which file extension am I aiming for? Avi? MKV?"

"My buddy lets me connect to his Plex server, and even added me to his Home on the Plex Pass, because of this, I want to help him out. He has a vast (about 1700 titles) DVD collection that I want to start helping him archive. For lots of the newer ones, we can find excellent digital copies elsewhere, but he has several obscure DVD titles that aren’t available anywhere else, so we would need to rip them from his collection manually.

My question is this: What is the best way to get uncompressed (he has a 4x16TB setup so size isn’t an issue… yet) DVD rip that is compatible with Plex? He wants the best quality possible without worrying about size so when streams to somewhere outside his network (and I stream to mine) it doesn’t make it too bad."

Actually, MKV is the best choise to rip DVD to Plex cause MKV is such a flexible container format that supports various codes, including H.264, VC-1, AC3, DTS, etc. Almost all DVD movies are saved as H.264/MPEG-2 encoded .VOB files with AC3 or DTS audio, in that case MKV is mostly compatible with DVD movies and it is possible to keep original H.264 video codec when converting DVD clips to MKV container without en-decoding, lossless video quality is retained. So how to rip DVD to lossless/uncompressed MKV?

What you need is a software that could kick the copy protection of DVD to one side and remux DVD into MKV without quality loss to play on Plex server. Here is how come Pavtube ByteCopy, an efficient DVD Ripper, which is specially designed for users who want to rip BD/DVD ISO images files to lossless/uncompressed MKV with multiple audio tracks and subtitles. Pavtube ByteCopy can remove DVD encryption including CSS, region code, RCE, Sony ArccOS, UOPs, Disney x-project DRM and Blu-ray AACS, BD+, UOP, Region codes, MKB v61, MKB v62 then convert DVD and Blu-ray to Plex in lossless/uncompressed MKV container.
