Steps to rip Blu-ray to TV accepted format

Step 1. Load Blu-ray disc

Insert your Blu-ray disc into an external Blu-ray drive, run the program on your computer, on the main interface click "File" > "Load from disc" to import the Blu-ray disc to the program.

Step 2: Set output format

1. You can choose the optimized format for Samsung/LG/Sony/Panasonic TV in the “Format” bar drop-down list.

2.If you can not find the optimized format for your TV, you can choose “Common Video” > “H.264 HD Video (*.mp4)” as output file format. Or if your TV supported  H.265/HEVC codec, you can also choose “H.265 HD Video” in “HD Video”.

Tips: Even though My Cloud Mirror has large storage space, if you have too large local movie collection that you want to put into it, you maybe need to compress the video size for storing more local movies on WD My Cloud Mirror.

Go to “Settings” on the main interface and lower the bitrate. Comparing with “Size” spec, bitrate is the main reason to affect the video size. You can preview the size at the below chart.

Notice: Bitrate also influences video quality. So don’t ignore video quality while pursuing the smaller size.

Step 3: Start to convert

After all the settings is completed, hit right-bottom “Convert” button to start to compress large local movie collection to Cloud Mirror (Gen 2). Then you can locate the video in output folder.

Now, feel free to transfer your converted videos to Cloud Mirror (Gen 2) for watching on Samsung/LG/Sony/Panasonic TV
