Magic DVD Ripper vs Pavtube ByteCopy

A collection of DVDs can become quite large over time, and creating digital copies of the DVD collection can help preserve and protect it. Of course, the DVD ripping software you choose can make a difference in the quality and functionality of your backup. Popular DVD Ripping tools have Magic DVD Ripper and Pavtube ByteCopy in the market. But which one is better? Now, let's have a toe-to-toe comparison between Magic DVD Ripper and Pavtube ByteCopy.

Part 1, Magic DVD Ripper and Pavtube ByteCopy Introduction

#1: Magic DVD Ripper


Magic DVD Ripper is a very easy and powerful DVD ripping software tool, which can convert DVD to VCD, SVCD, AVI(Xvid, DivX), WMV, MP3, MPEG2, MP4(for iPod, iPad, PSP, PS3 or smartphone etc mp4 player) or backup DVD to hard drive without any loss of quality. And you can enjoy them anytime without DVD discs or burn them to blank DVD or CD discs using burning software.


 In addition to its conversion tools, this DVD ripper allows you to back up a disc’s raw files, including ISO and Video TS folders.


 The library of customization profiles is tiny compared to the competition.

#2: Pavtube ByteCopy


 Pavtube ByteCopy<review> is your best Blu-ray & DVD copying and backing up tool which can backup and convert latest Blu-ray and DVD movies to any other formats like MP4, MOV , M4V, AVI, WMV, MPG, MKV, etc or MP4/MOV with multi-track audios for playback on iOS/Android/Windows Tablets/Phones, HD Media Players (WDTV), editing software (Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, etc.), and more. And other than that, Pavtube ByteCopy is also able to encode Blu-ray movies and DVDs to MKV container format with preserving chapter markers, multiple audio tracks and subtitles and make it possible for you to easily select your needed tracks, subtitles when watching Blu-ray and DVD movies with your media players. creating 3D video is supported by ByteCopy. And the windows version can export single SRT subtitle file.


I found little software will keep multiple audio and subtitle tracks when ripping BD/DVD discs until I met Pavtube ByteCopy. Really powerful multi-track preservation function!


 It can’t output iso files.

Why is this man smiling?- “The Unknown known”

In Movie Theaters:     Wednesday, April 2, 2014   Limited   
Coming Soon (7 days) Watch Trailer
On Demand (VOD):     Friday, April 4, 2014

Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris (The Fog of War) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public. Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history—not history as it actually happened, but history as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain that Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes”—whether intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history—are contradicted by the facts.

Additional Notes:
According to Errol Morris: "The Unknown Known: The Life and Times of Donald Rumsfeld is the story of a remarkable man whose career spans nearly one third of our nation's history. I am delighted to partner with The History Channel, Participant and RADIUS in this extraordinary project." 

Do you have any questions aboute this movie? You can answer in here and talk something about the movie, Jim said"If you have no time to enjoy the movies in a cinema, you can try the DVD ripper” to move the DVDs to your all devices! Come on, Enjoy it!”

How to transfer Blu-rays/DVDs to Mp4 on Plex Media Server for watching?

Actually, I would show you an easy way to ripping your DVD and Blu-Ray collections into .mp4 format and you can view them using Plex, hope can enjoy it and use it with high quality of the output files. 

First, I would like to introduce Plex Media Server – a solution for your local and online media, which seamlessly connects your Plex clients. Well you can watch movies with the client – Plex Media Center on Windows & Mac, and more importantly, on iPad, iPhone and Android devices with the paid app.

After that, I would show you a step-by-step guide to playback Blu-rays/DVDs via Plex Media Server. 
What you need:

This Blu-ray Ripper is developed by Pavtube studio; more info can be found in: 
First, this program has two version: Blu-ray Ripper and Blu-ray ripper for Mac.  
Before you purchase, you are able to download a free trial version to have a try. Now get it installed anyway and let’s move on. 

Step 1. Run Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper; load Blu-rays.

It dose not only support loading both Blu-ray and DVD disc, but also support Blu-ray folder, Blu-ray ISO, DVD folder and DVD IFO/ISO files.

It seems during the importing, the disc would be decrypted already.

Step 2. Choose H.264 MP4 format.

Click the “Format” drop-down list and choose HD Video>H.264 HD Video(*.mp4) for plex streaming. Or we can enter “H.264 MP4″ in the small search box to quick locate matched presets. We can also choose presets like iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android and Windows 8 RT/Pro phones/tablets, etc. for particularly using.

Step 3. Adjust target video specs (Optional)

Click “Settings” as bellow to check the source/target video size, bitrate, frame rate and other settings in one go; you will be able to know the target video size with different bitrate settings immediately.

Step 4. Start converting Blu-ray to H.264 MP4 for Plex.
