One glove fits all.

Quality ripping

Moving your disc collection to digital requires outstanding quality which is why we invest a lot of time and care into creating the perfect video rip. Only then, can we rest knowing you will enjoy your library for decades to come.

DVDs ripped with 5.1 digital surround sound

Audio

All devices are very at home with a stereo audio file, but your home theatre system will desire surround sound which is why we code in multiple audio tracks on your mp4, including DTS, DTS-MA/HD and TrueHD when available on your Blu-ray and (4K UHD) disc.

3D Blu-ray Ripping Service

3D

We have mastered the art of split screen 3D ripping and not just for lossless files such mkv and iso, but for the highly favoured mp4 too. Just click the split screen icon via your TVs 3D settings and press play for a truly immersive experience.

HD ripped Blu-ray discs

Visual

Picture perfect for your mobile, right up to your big screen, with our Blu-ray and UHD disc conversions preserving your titles 720p 1080p and 4K (disc dependent) vibrant quality.

4K Ripping Service

A 4K screenshot, compressed and rendered with website optimisation can never deliver a 100% accurate representation of the 4K might, but still, the hair on Durotan's shoulders, colour tone and the lines on his face do demonstrate an increased crisp and more enhanced range.

Which format should you go for?

MP4 or MKV? Either way, you get no warnings, trailers or menus to navigate, just the fun and enjoyment of Instant play.

96% of our customers choose mp4 because the file sizes are cleverly compressed and deliver a no real noticeable loss in quality. It's also a format that many of the giant online content streamers adopt, for both SD and HD content.


Audio
We transcode in a stereo track for your 2-channel devices and surround sound for your home theatre system, which are typically selected by your device automatically.

Also, we never compress surround sound, preferring a lossless passthrough only for your ultimate experience, perfect for those explosive scenes.

For HD titles (Blu-ray & 4K UHD), where DTS is present we'll include it too. It may make the file larger but who can put a price on the ultimate experience in sound, especially if you have invested well in your AV setup.

Subtitles

We can also burn in full-time one of the subtitles when present on your disc. So if you love French films, but don't speak French, we'll burn in the subs you desire.

MKV lossless, like the mp4 is a container format. Lossless is a term used to describe the action of "no compression". So, if the film on your DVD is 4GB & Blu-Ray is 30GB, then your MKV file will be 4GB and 30GB respectively.


Audio
Often a disc will present only a single surround sound track which means for your MKV we can not mux in a stereo file in the same way we can for mp4. For some brands/devices this may present a problem. Your media server however may step in and transcode your audio track on the fly for your 2-channel device, but to do this automatically with Plex Media Server or emby, you may need to consider the power of your computer or NAS first.

If you are unsure, it's likely the mp4 will fit your needs perfectly. That said, subtitles could be your primary reason to choose MKV.

Subtitles
Unlike the mp4, MKV permits multiple subtitle languages providing your they are on the disc. If you want to be able to activate or deactivate a range of subtitles at will, then MKV is your format.

Forced subtitles

For the mp4, we pay particular attention to forced subtitles (also known as soft subtitles), making sure to capture occasional foreign or alien Sci-Fi speaking scenes. Lossless files (mkv) capture all language, subtitle and audio options so you can activate and deactivate at will.

MP4 metadata tagging

We embed into your mp4, metadata such as cover art, synopsis, cast, directors, year, genre, ratings, season numbers, and episode numbers/name. This essential information enables offline media servers such as iTunes to populate all fields across all your devices. Your titles will look and behave just as if you had purchased them from the iTunes Store directly.

File naming

The metadata agents adopted by media servers and players such as Plex, Emby and Infuse 5 perform best with accurate file naming, such as a movie and it's release year. Major types of content are best separated from each other too, for example, we list movie and television content within defined folders.
