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.
