How to rip and
copy Blu-rays to QNAP NAS (TS-453 Pro)
STEP 1. Add Blu-ray files
Launch the Blu-ray ripping program for NAS devices. Then click "Add Blu-ray" to import the Blu-ray files you want to convert. To select the audio track you like, simply click the audio track option and select the one you prefer. Not only Blu-ray, but also DVD and other SD/HD/4K videos are all supported including H.265.
Tip: If you want to transfer Blu-ray to QNAP NAS (TS-453 Pro) retaining Blu-ray quality and you have a lot of spare space, you can choose "Make ISO" to copy Blu-ray disc to an iso. That makes one file for the Blu-ray. Make sure your media streamer can read .iso files first.
STEP 2. Choose an output format
Click "Select Format" bar and choose your desired format.
a. If you want to store hundreds of Blu-ray's on NAS, then rip the Blu-ray to .avi, .mp4, .mkv, etc compressed format. And what I've learned is that MP4 would be one best target format for it is fully compatible with nearly all media devices including iPad, iPhone, Xbox, Apple TV, etc.
Then click Settings bar, you can adjust the level of compression to suit the quality you want. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.
b. Besides the wide range of supported formats, you can also backup Blu-ray to lossless mkv to keep 5.1/7.1 surround sound and subtitles. Or convert Blu-ray to multi-track MP4 for Blu-ray playback with different languages. You can alsocustomize settings and change the encoder, resolution, frame rate, bitrate for video and encoder, channel, sample rate and bitrate for audio.
c. If you only need to copy the main movie of Blu-ray as M2TS streams without extras, you can directly copy Blu-ray movies to .m2ts streams for free playback on common media players with high quality with another Blu-ray copy -BDmate for Mac/Win.
STEP 3. Start copying Blu-ray to QNAP TS-453 Pro NAS drive
Press the "Start" button to start ripping Blu-ray movies to QNAP NAS (TS-453 Pro). When the conversion finishes, click Open button to find the output files. Make sure the wireless network connection is accessible among the NAS and your device. Then, you can stream and watch the high quality Blu-ray movies from NAS on multiple computers, Tablet, Phone, smart TV, HD Media Players, Game Console, or other devices at ease.
Note: The TS-453 Pro will also delivers superior real-time Full HD video transcoding to convert videos to formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. With the benefit of offline transcoding, if you can only connect to an Internet connection with limited/restricted bandwidth, you can still enjoy smooth videos by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution to play the videos via File Station, Video Station, or the Qfile mobile app without affecting the TS-453 Pro's system performance running other applications.
