How to Convert DVD to MKV with subtitles on Mac OS

Post by zunecast on Thu Jul 08, 2010 11:54 am

"I'm a Mac user. I have mountains of DVD disc and recently bought a WD-TV HD Player. So I want to convert all DVDs to some format in order to play on my HD player. The reason I don't want to convert them to AVI is because somewhere I read that if I convert DVD to MKV files, it will carry all the subtitles and bonus features of DVD too. But how do I convert DVDs to MKV files?"

What is MKV?




MKV( Matroska Multimedia Container) is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only.

Many people met the same problem that when they convert DVD to video and watch it on laptop or Mac, the quality gets bad. As we known, a DVD movie is often 8 GB in size. If we convert them to ordinary video formats, the size would be hundreds of MB.So we have to face the problem that the code compression would destroy most of unimportant data and video quality gets bad. How to resolve this problem? In fact, we can decrease the damage by converting DVD to MKV or other HD videos formats. These HD videos are often bigger than standard video and keep higher quality. In addition, if you convert DVD to MKV files, it will carry all the subtitles and bonus features of DVD.

Hi to all from Johannesburg, South Africa. Apple isn't a big player in the market here so the Apple-hype machine loses momentum before it hits here. I had been in an accident that year and out of the loop for some months while recovering so it was only late in June of 2007 that I went online and to the Apple website to browse around, 26th I think. This was close to the release day of the original iphone (29th if I remember). I had never been a fan of cellphones, and to that point had owned only Nokia devices. Good devices they were but just basic phones. I didn't buy into the 'smartphone' philosophy and in my experience found the existing devices too complex to be truly useful. It all changed for me that day as I looked at the images on the site. The iPhone seemed so out of this world, so futuristic and gorgeous and I needed to know more immediately. I emailed the pics to my wife and told her I'd found the first phone I actually wanted. I then downloaded the guided tour video and was just blown away. I took the video home and showed it to my wife. I was from then on glued to the blogs, following everything I could. I downloaded the introduction video, read as much as I could, speculated about what surprises may be unveiled at launch along with everyone else. No one else that I knew here in SA even had an inkling of what was going on and I went out and showed as many of my friends and colleagues as I could.On the 29th the iPhone launched. The reports said it was basically everything Apple promised it would be. The downside was it was US only and locked to AT&T.Sometime on August the first unlocks became available. I managed to send money in around November to a friend in the States who bought and sent me the two units I wanted – one for me and one for my wife. The jailbreak to unlock the SIM was done by bypassing the emergency call screen to the contacts screen and adding ‘jailbreakme.com' as a webiste addressunder a fake contact – so simple and perfect.Trouble was Apple updated the baseband in the 1.1.2 update which is what shipped with the units my friend purchased. So while jailbroken, I could only now use the device as an iPod. That was kinda frustrating, so near yet so far. I basically waited several months untilwifey and I managed to get hold of some sim chip thingamajigs to fool the phone into recognising the SIMs, this was in around February. Soon after the Dev team released the official unlock, THANKS GUYS. While I'm open to experimenting with other devices (one mustn't be blinded), none have yet matched the ease of use, polish nor the appeal of the iPhone.Crazy thing is I remember all of that, but I don't have a clue what phone I was using before my iPhone…..rip dvd to wmv

Hi, for those looking to DIY, note that any stated solutions do not do impedance matching which is critical in getting the appropriate guitar signal into the device. Ours has circuitry in it, as we've been making guitar interfaces for years.On that last note, we are no worse than any unit with batteries or whatnot (again, we've been doing this for years)- even a major magazine did a shootout of many solutions and found no significant improvement of theirs over ours with the battery. We have also been making guitar gear simulations for years in the software world and had 11 apps that actually produced audio in the App Store before the first version of AmpliTube in the App Store and believe that the experience shows.On top of the experience, version two has DSP code that is derived directly from our pro audio software AmpliTube 3 and T-RackS! So again, we draw from our experience to bring the best to the table and will continue to do so.Thank you for the reviews, the comments (although again I'd steer clear of DIY solutions that do not do impedance matching), and for allowing us to bring you tools like this to make music on the go. rip dvd to ipod mac Hi, I have looked over the internet and cant find appropriate solution for this problem. This is what happens after iOS 4.2 update.i have a Gmail Exchange activesync set up. (Calendar, Mail works perfect, but contacts scrolling becomes laggy). Please read on.Everything is OK until i turned off all internet data connection (Wi-Fi, cellular data, 3G). Then, when I start adding a new contact with data off, the contacts scrolling becomes laggy, AND THE SMS APP is unable to delete any sms. you are able to press edit and the – button, but then the "delete" button will appear and disappear itself before we can even tap on it.Tried on an iPad 64 GB wifi, and iPhone 4 32GB. Contacts slow scrolling is exactly the same problem, except that iPad doesnt have an SMS (messages) app.
