So you want to rip Blu-ray movies to a hard drive? Good news!
You can rip Blu-ray movies even though they have a ton of content protection that make watching them on a computer difficult, which is especially frustrating for people who simply want to watch their own movies. Even with this content protection, you can rip Blu-ray movies. I am currently using AnyDVD HD as my main tool to rip Blu-ray movies.
Here are the three options to rip Blu-ray movies:
- AnyDVD HD- This is the easiest way of ripping movies and has become the standard for Blu-ray ripping. Slysoft is constantly updating AnyDVD HD to combat the ever changing digital rights management schemes that are implemented in Blu-ray disks. Download a free trial version to check it out. This is the method I recommend.
- DVDFab HD Decryptor – This software copies entire DVD movie to hard disk, and removes all the protections (CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS) while copying. It also comes with full HD-DVD and Blu-Ray support (Removes AACS). HD Decrypter is free while the full featured DVDFab Blu-ray to Blu-ray is available here.
- Running Linux on a PS3. This is a much more complicated way of ripping Blu-ray movies. Basically, you have to install Linux on your Playstation 3. Once you have Linux running, you can then rip the Blu-ray disc. This option is for the hardcore geek.
