Backup Blu-ray Discs on Mac

People have been backing up (ripping) DVDs and CDs for some time now on Mac. Blu-ray discs haven’t been as popular, mostly because there is no option for a Blu-ray drive when ordering a computer. If you bought either an internal or external blu-ray player you can use MakeMKV to backup those discs. The program is free right now because it’s in beta.

Reads DVD and Blu-ray discs
Reads Blu-ray discs protected with latest versions of AACS and BD+
Preserves all video and audio tracks, including HD audio
Preserves chapters information
Preserves all meta-information (track language, audio type)
Fast conversion – converts as fast as your drive can read data.
No additional software is required for conversion or decryption.
Available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux
Functionality to open DVD discs is free and will always stay free.
All features (including Blu-ray decryption and processing) are free during BETA.

The files are going to be big, around 40GB in size, and in MKV format. You can always fire up handbrake afterwards with the new 64-bit beta and convert the MKV into a AppleTV or iPhone friendly format.
