Firstly, let’s see a situation from Jacques:
I am completely new to this field. I recently bought a WD-TV HD Player. I thought it is a very good way to rip all my DVDs to digital files and have everything ready in a hard drive.
Somewhere I read that if I rip DVD for MKV files, it will carry all the subtitles and bonus features of the DVD too. My question is how do I rip DVD for MKV files?
Your help is very much appreciated.
From my experience, you should try F2Fsoft DVD Ripper for ripping a DVD into MKV, this DVD ripping software always give users the best results.
And here are more information you should know about DVD to MKV:
