First, a quick note: we know that there is still a lot of legal ambiguity around ripping content that you have legally purchased. At Audioholics, we believe that you should be able to watch purchased media on your system regardless of whether it’s coming from a standalone Blu-ray player or a media center frontend. Actually, it’s not as difficult as you imagine. To get Blu-rays on Plex, you’ll need a Blu-ray drive installed in your computer and a third-party Blu-ray ripping software.
The best program for ripping Blu-ray movies for Plex Media Sever ( Reference: Top 5 Best Blu-ray Ripping Programs Review). I can recommend here is Pavtube BDMagic. It aims to solve this problem by giving us the ability to store our purchased physical Blu-ray and DVD discs to local computer, hard drive then stream over a home network for Plex Media Server and ipod touch 6, Samsung Galaxy S2, iPhone 6S playback.

Guide- Rip a Blu-ray to Plex Media Server playable file type with Blu-ray Ripper
Step 1: Insert your Blu-ray disc into your BD drive, run the Pavtube BDMagic and click “Load disc” icon to load movie from Blu-ray source (Disc, folder, ISO). You can also click “Add Video” to load video files like MTS/M2TS, MKV, VOB, MOV, TOD, TiVo, etc.
Tips: Before start converting Blu-ray, you can backup your BD content first. There are two options for you:
a. Backup Blu-ray with original structures;
b. Copy movie only from Blu-ray discs;
Step 2:Click the “Format” option, and choose HD Video > MKV HD Video(*.mkv) as output format. You can also select H.264 HD Video (*.mp4) for Plex Media Server.
Note: The output format is preferably in a common format, like MP3 for audio, MPEG-4 for video. The more common format you use, the more devices you can stream to. For example, if you use FLAC instead of MP3 for your music, you can’t stream to your Xbox 360. Just keep in mind that not all devices support all formats of media.
If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3: Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Blu-ray ripper will start the conversion from Blu-ray movies to MKV for Plex Media Server.
After conversion, you can stream Blu-ray movies through Plex Media Server to HDTV or ipod touch, Google TV, iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tabs S2, Samsung Galaxy S7, PS4, HTC One M9, or other DLNA-compliant devices. Now watching blu-ray movies on portable devices becomes easy and I can really lie back, relax and enjoy my favorite blu-ray movies.
