My Google Fu is weak... er lazy. What are people using to rip Blue Ray?

Is anyone using Handbrake?

What Blue Ray drive would read a BD disc under Yosemite. I have a 2009 Mac Pro flashed to think it is a 2010.

Assuming you're ripping a commercial Blu-Ray, I use [makemkv.com] to get an unencrypted .mkv file, and then use HandBrake to rip it to a more friendly format, though I've been trying out iVi recently in order to add "soft" subtitles.

I have a friend who uses DVDFab. But The Man doesn't like you to use anything that might circumvent bluray security features so you cannot download it if you are in the US. So my friend uses a VPN to change his location. Or something. I've heard.

MakeMkv to copy video file from BD disc to internal drive.
Handbrake to change it's bitrate, resolution, encoding format or any combination thereof.

DVDFab's best feature is to take a double layer DVD (up to 8GB in size) and extract only the main feature (frequently only 5-6GB) to a DVD image file, so you only need to re-encode that to a typical single layer DVD (4.7GB) for backup purposes. That recompression goes noticeably better (say, in Toast 15) taking 5-6GB down to 4.7 vs taking 7.5GB (and all the DVD's other associated crap) down to 4.7.

MakeMKV to get it off the disc (you need a BD player; forum sponsor has several that would work -- check garage sale items). Then Handbrake to convert it into an MP4 that will play with VLC or even QuickTime.

When I do it, I only get the main item off the disc not including foreign languages but being sure to get subtitles. When you do the Handbrake conversion, select to get any forced subtitles...

This thread is useful to my interests, although I'm generally OK with buying the bluray disc for something in my collection and ripping the DVD for an unrestricted digital version to use in my streaming/portable collection. I can't usually notice the difference ENOUGH to justify all the extra horsepower needed to convert a bluray.
