In this guide I’m going to walk through my workflow on several different Blu-ray titles that each present their own obstacles. By the end you will be able to follow these steps to create your own backups or have a good foundation of knowledge to create your own workflow or at least start asking the right questions. My method is to use a decryption tool to copy the content from the disc to the hard drive and then use a command line tool to pull it apart and analyze the content. Then I’ll use a GUI based tool to package it back up into a MKV. This may seem like a cumbersome method at first but it’s the only method that works 100% of the time. Following this method will also force you into learning a bit more about the process and you’ll be more capable or navigating through future hurdles that may arise.
Let’s move on to the next page to go over a few key items before we start the actual ripping process. Jump over to page 3 if you want to get right down to it.
Any reason you export to VobSub and not Sup(BD)?
No specific reason. I use Plex Media Server and Plex Home Theater which will work with most sub formats so I don’t really have a preference. It’s the default output format from BDSup2Sub and I’m not even sure if it will export other formats. I never had the need to convert it to a specific format. If anything I would use SupRip or something similar to convert to SRT if I was going to standardize on a format.
I’ve since found that exporting from BDSup2Sub to sup is extremely easy in that there is a drop down for the export format right in the main window…. I just never looked there 🙂
