How to Rip and Convert Blu-ray to iOS Player (iPhone, iPad, iPod)

The cupboard in my living room is full of Blu-ray disc in which there are a wealth of classic movies. Since I commute long distances to work by subway every day, it is a good idea to watch these classic movies on my iOS device like iPhone (iPhone 7, 6s, etc.) or iPad (Air, Mini, Pro, etc.) during transit to kill the time. It is a pleasure to watch those movies from Blu-ray onto your iOS player, but the first thing that you need to do is to decrypt your Blu-ray disc and extract the movies out of it.

There are some limitations and restrictions to iOS devices like iPhone and iPad in terms of video formats. Fortunately, Blu-ray Ripper (for Mac, for Windows) is good at this stuff.

When it comes to ripping Blu-ray for iOS player, there are always some unavoidable issues concerning protection schemes. Luckily, Blu-ray Ripper has what it takes to vanquish the built-in disc restrictions like AACS encryption and the BD+ copy protection used on Blu-ray disc or DVDs. Therefore, you don't need a separate utility to decrypt your Blu-ray disc.

Dubbed as a versatile tool, Blu-ray Ripper allows you to rip the both Blu-ray and DVD disc and convert the movies for playback on iOS devices. And it is capable of converting your Blu-ray/ DVD movies to any possible video & audio formats you can imagine. What is more, it has many more features which lets you change the level of compression (e.g. tweak resolution, set fps, kbps, hz).

Now, please join me in figuring out how this powerful software make your movie viewing experience better by ripping Blu-ray movies to your iOS devices.

Step 1: Import Blu-ray movies

Insert a Blu-ray disc onto BD drive on computer, and open up Blu-ray Ripper.

Click "Add Blu-ray/DVD" located on the top left corner of the screen, then, choose your BD disc and click Open, and the software then scans the DVD for the titles it contain.

It takes time to upload a big batch of movies, and all the movie titles you choose are displayed on the main screen, accompanied by video parameters: output format, resolution, length and subtitle.

Step 2: Choose a preset or an iOS readable format

Two methods to set output preferences:

1) Select a preset

Once Blu-ray titles loaded click the "MP4 Video" button on the center of top bar, and you see a drop-down menu as below.

Click "Change", switch to "Device" tab and it comes to a panel with presets to optimize the Blu-ray for any devices, and iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) are included. You then pick one of selectable presets matching your handheld model under "Apple" sub-tab. Generally speaking, you're advised using them.

What's more, as you can see, there are a library of other device-oriented presets for other popular devices: Samsung, LG, Sony, Microsoft and so on.

2) Select a specific format for your iOS device instead

Go to "Format" > "HD Video" (or "Common Video"), and then select a format that your iOS player accepts well, such as MP4 (H.264, MPEG-4) , MOV, M4V.

Default settings are already in place so you don' t have to bother to tweak the video output quality. Of course, Blu-ray Ripper grants you full control over the video files like codec, bit rate, aspect ratio, etc., by clicking the pen icon on the upper right side of the chosen format. If you are not familiar enough with these settings, it is a better idea not to tweak the default settings.

Bonus points: Aside from converting Blu-ray movies directly to iOS portable device, Blu-ray Ripper lets you edit your movies according to your preferences: trim, crop and merge videos, put watermark, adjust effects, and more. You can do this task by using the "Edit" image icon on the far right of the title.

Step 3: Start ripping and converting Blu-ray

Here comes the last point: conversion. Before you begin, hit "Convert" button on the top bar and a window comes out allowing you to specify where your final files should be stayed in.

Now, go ahead and press "Convert" button to activate the conversion process. The whole process of Blu-ray to iOS on your machine might take quite some time for such large file size of Blu-ray movies.

After the conversion comes to an end, you're ready to use a USB cable to import these new created movies into your iPhone or iPad using an iTransfer tool or sync with iTunes and enjoy on the go.

That's it! Enjoy!
