As we all know, Blu-ray disc include high definition audio like Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master, Audio, and DTS as well as HD video with 720p or 1080p, which offers us a wonderful experience when watching movies on HDTV with a professional Blu-ray player. What if I would like to play Blu-rays on portable devices or I am lacking of a Blu-ray player? Is there an easier way to watch Blu-ray while keeping the original TrueHD, DTS-HD, and DTS audio?
How can we watch an intact Blu-ray movie on computer in lossless quality without any Blu-ray Player? We need a video format that is suitable for containing multiple video, audio and subtitle streams.
MKV is the multimedia container format, which allows videos in a variety of different codes, more than 16 different audio formats, and subtitle streams in different languages are encapsulated in MKV file. The most important is that MKV file has the ability to contain video, audio and subtitle streams of different codec types. It would be the best choice to lossless backup Blu-ray disc to MKV file with all audio tracks and subtitles included for seeking the same video experience as watching Blu-ray.
