Description: Do you want to backup DVD to lossless MKV to play on a WDTV? How to keep the original video quality and still with 5.1 channels? Here you will find an easy way to do it.
What I want to do is to have my DVD's avalible for movie played on WD TV at night. (I'm too lazy to get off the couch and look though my DVD collection to find my favorite movies.) I went through so many on the Internet looking for something decent. Tried some free ones that were crap for what I wanted to acceive.
And Luckily I find a powerful and easy-to-use DVD to MKV Converter. It can convert DVD to MKV retaining all multiple audio and subtitle tracks in MKV files. The converted files is smaller but still good pic & quality with 5.1 channel. Pavtube ByteCopy is known as the best which also support to select audio codec for every audio tracks in MKV. Seemed the most reliable & easy to use & the site looked safe enough to use credit card on. Easy of use & good format choices
How to convert DVD to lossless MKV with AC3 5.1/DTS 5.1 audio for WD TV player?
1. Load DVD source.
First of all, insert your DVD to DVD drive and keep networked. Now it's time to import DVD into the software after launching it.
Click "Load files" icon to choose DVD source for importing.
2. Choose output MKV.
In the dropdown list of Format menu, you can find several MKV options for output. Here we recommend "Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (* mkv)" under "Multi-track Video" catalogue. Because it will save multiple video, audio and subtitle tracks form original DVD in output MKV and you won't suffer any quality loss.
3. Select audio codec for output.
Click "Settings" button on the main interface; you are brought to Multi-task Settings. Here detailed parameters of multiple audio and subtitle tracks are listed and you can change any of them at will.
In default system setting, every track is checked for lossless MKV output. If you want to remove one of them, just uncheck it from the list. Check "Encode" option, you can change audio parameters like codec, channels according to your needs. In this way, if you don't like DTS audio, you can choose to remove it or convert to AC3 here.
Note: If you change audio parameters under "Encode" option, you will get a encoded multi-track MKV file, not lossless multi-track MKV. Recoding DVD to MKV will take a little more time for conversion than lossless output.
4. Backup DVD to lossless MKV.
When everything is ready, you can click "Convert" button to start converting DVD to lossless MKV with AC3 5.1/DTS 5.1 audio for WD TV player. Once finished, go to "Open" the generated MKV files.
