Apparently nowadays Blu-ray discs have dominated the media maket for high definition videos. Acturally compared with DVD, Blu-ray disc really offers a tiptop high definition image, which is worthwhile to invest in. So once you own a number of great Blu-ray movies, you may have a series of concerns such as: what if BDs are scratched or missing? May I edit the Blu-ray movie or just watch one particular part/chapter easily? Or is it possible to watch HD Blu-ray movies on my Android-based phone?

In fact, as long as you back up a Blu-ray disc to WMV HD format, all the above concerns would dispear.


WMV HD is short for Windows Media High Definition Video which is encoded with WMV9 codecs and with the high resolution of 1280×720 or 1920×1080 pixel. WMV HD videos is available to play with Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, MPlayer and etc on computer and on many android-based phones and game consoles(including Xbox360, PS3).

Why ripping Blu-ray discs to WMV HD?

So by ripping Blu-ray discs, you have a backup so that you can let those BDs lie still on the shelf without damages during taking out the discs; by converting Blu-ray discs to WMV HD, you may edit them with Windows Movie Maker to make your own video, choose the very part of BD to play, and play the HD BD movies on your phone or game consoles. More importantly, WMV HD will give you a 720p/1080p HD video without any quality loss.
