MakeMKV is a freeware program designed to rip encrypted video and audio from DVDs, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray discs so you can create digital backups of your collection in MKV format. It can also modify existing MKV files. Binaries are made for Macintosh and Windows.


Ever since I bought an Internet capable TV, I mostly stream video from the Internet or from a portable hard drive attached to my TV. Because of this, I've moved my collection of optical discs into my basement to get them out of the way. However, when I feel the need to watch one of my old movies, I have to run to the basement and find it, then fiddle around with my DVD player. Becoming annoyed with this, I decided to rip the few DVDs I watch frequently to digital video so I wouldn't have to do this anymore. This was the first free DVD ripper I found, and it was easy to use and worked perfectly on my first attempt.
