Blu-ray to DVD Pro
The 1st Blu Ray to DVD converter on the market. From the makers of DVD Cloner, comes the original Blu-Ray to DVD software. At the moment is it not cost effective to make copies of Blu-Ray movies since blank BD-R discs still range from $15-$30 each. But making a copy of a Blu-Ray onto a DVD is a much cheaper option while still retaining HD quality on the DVD. OS: Windows 7 64/32/2000/XP/VistaLicense: $39.99

5 Reasons Why Would Want To Convert Blu Ray to DVD

  1. The main reason to convert Blu-Ray movies onto DVDs is for the simple matter of cost savings.  It is much less expensive to purchase blank DVD which are around $.75 each compared to a blank BD-R disc which are still averaging around $2.50.
  2. Thanks to software technology it is possible to rip the contents from a Blu-Ray and then have it converted over into the DVD format. However this does take away from the 1080P HD picture and 5.1 Audio. See the next point on how to retain the same HD quality.
  3. It is possible to keep the same HD picture and audio if you convert the Blu-Ray into a .MKV file.  This is a container for HD audio and video streams which when burned onto a DVD disc can be played back on a Blu-Ray player which supports reading discs that contain a .MKV file.  Note: Most DVD players can not play .MKV, only Blu-Ray players and the PS3.
  4. If you do not have a Blu-Ray burner on your PC then you will need to convert to DVD or .MKV and burn to DVD. (Note: a BD Reader drive is required though)
  5. To preserve a copy of your original Blu-Ray movie.  Why risk damaging or losing the disc when it’s easy enough to make a backup onto a DVD.
