Whether it’s for home or business, if you need to store and share data over a network, NAS can’t be a better choice. And ripping your Blu-rays into digital files for store in NAS is a great way to clear some space in your living room – and it won’t cost you a penny. This article here will teach you how to backup and convert Blu-ray to NAS compatible videos on Mac OS X El Capitan for watching or sharing on large screen Vivo TV.
It makes a lot of sense to rip and copy the contents of your Blu-rays onto a NAS or hard drive and stick the bulky cases in a box in the attic – or clear them out for good. Thankfully, there’s plenty of free software available to do just that, and as long as you stick to ripping discs that you legally purchased, you’re not doing anything wrong. Advanced users can rip Blu-rays into a same-quality MKV file using MakeMKV, then convert that using an application such as Handbrake. But you should note that although “MakeMKV + Handbrake” provides users a handy Blu-ray converting experience, it is still far from perfect in terms of the supported Blu-ray types, output formats, scanning and ripping speed…
To avoid all these issues, a better suggestion is Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac– a powerful third-party software to backup dozens of Blu-ray movies to NAS device for Vivo TV playback. (Read review)
