How to register and extend your MakeMKV certified code

MakeMKV is a software that can convert DVD Blu-ray video files to MKV.MKV stands for Matroska Video.Matroska is a multimedia container format for storing data such as video, audio and subtitles, and is one of the most popular video formats because it is license-free and can be played on all operating systems.When converted to MKV, you can save all audio tracks, subtitles, chapters, meta information, etc. as is, in addition to videos.

MakeMKV has Windows and Mac (OS) versions.In addition, a version is available on Linux.The latest version is 1.14.7 (Win&Mac).The last update was in 2010, so we can't support the latest copy guard.

OS: Windows XP/ Vista/ Win7 (32bit, 64bit) x86

Mac OS X 10.5 and later

Supported protection: AACS and BD+ (not compatible with CPRM, AVCREC, etc.)

MakeMKV comes in two versions: free software and paid software. You can use MakeMKV to freely convert or stream DVD and AVCHD discs.Converting or streaming Blu-ray discs is a paid version of the feature.MakeMKV is available as a beta version for a long time, but the trial period expires and can't be used every 30 days.During the 30-day trial period, paid features (such as Blu-ray conversion) are available for free.MakeMKV is a software that you can try before you buy it, and you can try it for free for 30 days, so I think it's enough to check the program's functionality.During the period you try, you'll be able to use all the features without being limited.The only limit is the expiration date.If you like MakeMKV and want to continue using it after the 30-day trial expires, you'll need to extend the trial period as follows:

To use MakeMKV after the trial period ends, you will be asked to purchase an authorized key.The official key is valid for all MakeMKV versions on all platforms.There is no expiration date or subscription.You can process Blu-ray disks encrypted with Copy Guard, AACS and BD+.

In fact, there is a way to extend the official trial period even after the 30-day trial period ends.There is no need to look for cracks.

First, open the "Announcement Page" of the MakeMKV official website.

Click MakeMKV is free while in beta.

Select and copy the text in code.

Start MakeMKV.Then click "Help" > "Authorized".

The input field is displayed.Paste the copied code and press the OK button.

This will allow you to approve the trial and extend the trial period by 30 days.This will extend the trial period.You can repeat this task.The code changes every month, so you need to do this every time the trial period expires.

However, at the beginning of the month of the month, the official code that is posted due to the time difference may not be authenticated.If you don't get certified well by all means, it will be a challenge the next day.

As mentioned on the main page, all features of MakeMKV are free while the program is in beta.If you like the program and want to see support, you can purchase a full activation key, or you can use a temporary beta key.

The page to purchase the official key does not seem to have a direct link on the homepage of the official site, please start the software, click "Help", then click "Purchase".That opens the purchase page.There are quite a few types of credit cards that can be used for payment, and payment methods such as Paypal and bank transfer are also supported.If you can make a payment, copy the official code sent to you, press Help in the software interface, then click Approved.Paste the copied code and authentication is complete.

As I mentioned earlier, MakeMKV is a convenient free software, but since no more updates have been made, there are few types of copy guards that can be handled, It is often not possible to remove the copy guard of the DVD and Blu-ray disc released recently.Then, since the output is only one of MKV, you may not be able to play the output video file directly on your smartphone or tablet.To play on such a device, you must also convert it to MP4 using other software.Also, when I actually ripped the Blu-ray video file, some titles failed to convert, and eventually I couldn't see some of the movie's contents.Because it is already a software of discontinuation of development, even if such an error or problem occurs, it is unlikely to respond immediately, so do not waste time, You may want to get other DVD, BD copy and ripping software like DVDFab.

DVDFab is a software that processes video and audio such as DVD and Blu-ray.You can use the Blu-ray ripping module to convert Blu-ray video files to MKV, MP4, AVI, and other formats.In addition, almost any copy guard can be removed, and damaged disks can be handled without problems.

What is MakeMKV?

MakeMKV is a one-click solution that converts your videos into a free format (MKV) that can be played anywhere.MakeMKV is a tool for converting video formats, also known as "transcoders".Convert your own (normally encrypted) disk video clips to MKV files, leaving most of the information, but not changing the contents of the disc.

The MKV format allows you to store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and leave the chapter intact.There are many players that can play MKV files on almost any platform, and there are tools to convert MKV files to many formats such as DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

The main features and features of MakeMKV:
  • Convert DVD and Blu-ray discs to MKV files
  • Processing AACS and BD+ protection on Blu-ray disks (CPRM and
  • AVCREC, etc. are not supported) video and audio tracks, chapter information, meta information as it is stored

Knowledge: MKV stands for "Matroska Video".Matroska is a container file format that can store an unlimited number of video, audio, subtitle tracks, and metadata.This actually means that you can put multiple sounds and an entire movie, including subtitle tracks, chapter information, and movie thumbnails, in a single file.

MKV files can be played by many media players.The media player corresponding to the playback of MKV videos is ALLPlayer BS.

MakeMKV Beta and how to extend the trial period

MakeMKV Beta is a 30-day free trial version available on MakeMK.After the trial period expires, you can extend the trial period once it is regularly published in the MakeMKV Forum and you have obtained a file called CurrentBetaKey.

How to install MakeMKV Beta

To install MakeMKV Beta, it is recommended that you download it directly from the official website.Click Download to open the download page.Depending on the operating system you use, select the version of the software and download it.When the download is complete, install as instructed.

Double-click Setup_MakeMKV_v1 .14.7 to begin the installation.First, specify the language as English.Click OK.

Click Next.

Check and agree with "I accept the terms of the License Agreement".Press Next.

Select the location where you want to install the software, then click Next.

Click Install.Wait for the installation to complete.When you're done, click Next.

 How to Translate MakeMKV into Japanese

Start the installed software, press the "view" button above, and click "Preference".Then click Language and select Japanese.Click OK to complete the language installation.Exit MakeMKV, and then start it again.That's when the language is changed to Japanese.

How to use MakeMKV's ripping feature

Step1: If you start MakeMKV and the optical drive already contains a DVD or Blu-ray disc, MakeMKV will automatically load the disc.If you want to rip an ISO file, click the camera icon at the top right and select the ISO file to start importing.

Step2: You'll get a message like this.Press Yes.Then the file analysis begins.

Step4: When the analysis is over, specify the title you want to rip.Then select the output folder.Click the Make MKV button on the right.


To convert a single Blu-ray disc can be done in about ten minutes, but there are quite a few that fail for unknown reasons.MakeMKV doesn't seem to be very good at handling damaged disks, and because it flies scratched, it often happens that only some files could be converted after all.Therefore, it is a software that is fairly fast and easy to use, but since the conversion is unstable, you may need copy ripping software like DVDFab.

DVDFab is also a software with functions such as DVD, BD copy, ripping, etc. that are useful to many users over the years.MkV, of course, can also be converted to formats such as MP4, FLV, AVI, WMV, VOB, M2TS, TS, etc.

I tried to rip the failed file again with MakeMKV using the DVDFab Blu-ray ripping tool, but it was a success.Compared to MakeMKV, ripping time is slightly longer, but since it is a software that is still being developed and updated, it also supports the latest copy guard.In addition, it seems to be able to handle the disk with the wound properly, and it is a reliable tool.If you are worried about failures or errors, you may want to choose this software.
