How to Convert a Blu-ray to MP3 Audio File on Mac & PC
If you're anything like me, you probably have a large collection of Blu-ray discs laying around in the corners of room. While it's nice to watch your Blu-ray on your home BD player, some of you might be fretted over the problem of extracting the soundtrack from Blu-ray to MP3 audio to get it onto an portable device for listening to or just save in media library on computer. It goes without saying that MP3 is one of the most popular audio formats to date because of its convenience, portability and high compatibility. And audio files end with .mp3 extension with high compression rate don't take up too much storage space.
As a matter of fact, just like ripping a DVD to mp3 audio file format, there are many ways to deal with it, in this article I am going to introduce a very handy application—Blu-ray Ripper.

To make things easier, please follow us through the following guide on how to rip the audio tracks from Blu-ray to .mp3 on a Mac or PC machine.
Step 1: Import Blu-ray disc
Start the program and insert a Blu-ray disc into the computer Blu-ray drive.
Import the blu-ray titles you want rip from Blu-ray to MP3 format through a click of "Add Blu-ray/DVD".
Step 2: Set MP3 as output format
Here comes the format selecting. Click "MP4 video" and hit the "Change" button.
In the picture as below, choose the Format tab and you get four sub tabs: Common Video, Common Audio, HD video, 4K Video. This makes it easy to locate what you are looking for: Common Audio > MP3 Audio.
If it happens that you're planning to play your MP3 sound track on portable devices, simply choose a preset for the conversion under Device category.
You can tweak the audio quality under the pen image icon on the upper right side of the format. On the promoted Profile Settings panel, you can change to different bit rates, sample rates, channels for processing, but it's worth mentioning that the default settings are often good enough.
Step 3: Convert the Blu-ray to save audio in MP3 file
Once you are finished with choosing the MP3 format and tweaking its setting, back to the main interface and press "Convert" button (on the upper right side). This will come up a dialog asking you to select a location for your audio files you're about to create.
Again, click "Convert" button to start the process from protected BD to MP3 sound track. Once it begins, you'll see a progress bar along each title you selected that will let you know how much time you have left in the rip. Higher quality rips will take longer, so you'll let your computer run for a while and you grab a snack.
Overall, Blu-ray Ripper has made this process as easy as possible, and a lot easier and quicker than converting your discs to video files manually or downloading them illegally. Just download and install it on your machine, then rip and convert some older yet precious BD content right from the comfort at home.
