HA ready X264 Blu-Ray backups in TS or MKV

Hi guys,

I want to share my experience with you.

After i was sure what format is the winner of the battle i got an HD-DVD and Blu-Ray reader/BD writer for my HTPC.
The question was how to backup my BR Disks.

I’ve been studying on PureVideo-HD (or AVIVO-HD) for almost one year and the first thing i thought was converting them to HA (Hardware Acceleration) capable x264 files.

This small guide is for whom want to backup their own Blu-Ray disks.

Pre-requirements for re-encoding and watching HA able x264 files.

At least :
Core2 Duo CPU (or equivelant AMD)
2GB RAM-667Mhz
nVidia 8*** or Ati 2*** series GPU as minimum.

Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra( v7.3 or higher) for decoding HA able movies. (commercial)

Other needed SoftWare: (i don’t give the links, you know where they are)

MS NetFrameWork 3.5
Latest DX update
Any DVD-HD (commercial)
TS Muxer
Eac3to and Eac3to Gui
mkvToolNix (mkvmerge gui)

Lets start:



We insert BD into BD drive and PowerDVD starts.
Exit the program and right click on AnyDVD on the bottom right corner of the desktop.
Click on the “Rip Video DVD to Hard Disk” and a popup window opens. We show the destination directory and say: “Copy DVD:

And the process starts:

At the end of the process, SpiderMan3 Folder will be under destination (E)
We click on the STREAM sub-folder under BDMV:

Now we search the biggest m2ts here. In our case it is 0011.m2ts what we ask, it is 43GB:

Lets have a look into this file; we gonna see lots of audio files:

OK, it is time to demux.


Now we are opening 0011.m2ts with TSMuxer:

We select the needed video and audio files and start to demux:

Now we got a raw h264 file and an as is ac3 audio:

Re-encoding the audio:

We are going to convert True HD to ac3 using Eac3to Gui:

Remuxing to TS

Here we will remux the h264 file and new ac3 file into a TS container using TSMuxer again:

Cutting TS into two pieces:

I prefer this method since every piece after re-encoding will be 4GB which is ready to write on a mono-layer DVD.
We use H264TS_cutter for this:

(i cut a small piece for trial)

Now we have two pieces ts ready to re-encode.


OK, fist we prepare a graph on GraphEdit which will decode only video.(of course you may use Haali or Gabest splitter/or Cyberlinkh264 decoder)

Prepare avs:

Open megui.
Select video profile as DXVA-HD-HQ, select file format as mkv and open avs:

Config like this:

Click on "auto-encode", make these setting on openning popup window:

Re-encoding to x264 starts:

(sorry i have to give SS links anymore since i'm limited with 20 pictures)


After re-encoding finishes we will give AR to video with MkvMerge Gui (since MeGui is not succesfull in this)



Now we demux audio from TS; i used here dump filter on GraphEdit:



Now we are ready to remux AR corrected video(s) and dumped audio(s);

I prefer to remux into TS container (with TS muxer) or you may wish to remux into mkv (with MkvMergeGui)

Here is the sample clip:

Spiderman 3
