This tutorial guide is mainly discussing the following topics:
1. Brief introduction of Blu-ray ripping software
When you walk into a DVD Renting House, there's a good chance that almost every DVD you see is titled with Blu-ray. So what is Blu-ray? What are the differences between DVD and Blu-ray DVD?
Blu-ray is a media format designed to replace the DVD format. The new technology is taking over the film and television industry as it can store more data and provide a much better picture (Hi-def) than the DVD format as well as better audio. It is capable of storing hours of video in high-definition (720p and 1080p) and ultra-high-definition resolution 2160p resolution (3840×2160 pixels), at up to 60 frames per second.
If you have an extensive DVD collection, don't worry; you don't need to replace your DVDs with Blu-rays. All Blu-ray players can play existing DVDs. Additionally, most Blu-ray players include technology advancements that allow the players to improve the visual playback of existing DVDs. If you do not have a Blu-ray player but want to have the HD experience, there is still another option for you – Blu-ray ripping software.
Blu-ray ripping software is software that helps you rip films from Blu-ray DVDs or DVDs and store them in other devices for playback. It can convert Blu-ray movies to other formats and DVD movies to Blu-ray as well.

3. Some other options for considerations
Acrok Video Converter Ultimate (Acrok Blu-ray Ripper)
Acrok Video Converter Ultimate can do with all kinds of any Blu-ray/Common Video/HD Video/DVD/4K/H.265 sources, protected and unprotected Blu-ray Disc, BDMV folder, BD ISO, physical DVD, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file. As a professional and powerful all-in-one Video, Blu-ray discs and DVD disc handling tool, Acrok integrates DVD/Blu-ray ripping and converting.
Acrok has the most powerful crack technology. Both 3D Blu-ray discs, 2D Blu-ray discs, and standard DVDs can be ripped to all popular SD and HD (3D) video formats like 4K/1080P/720P MP4, M4V, WMV, MOV, FLV, MKV, AVI, 3GP, MPEG, TP, TRP and more.
Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper
When it comes to decrypting/hacking Blu-ray discs, DVDs and any videos, Aiseesoft is about as good as it gets. It only handles AACS, BD+, Region code restriction Blu-rays. By taking advantage of CUDA accelerating, the conversion time is greatly shorted. You can convert Blu-ray to MKV, AVI, MOV DVD etc. to any video format. However, you can't rip Cinavia protected Blu-ray discs. Sometimes it's going to crash.
Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper
Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper can convert both standard Blu-ray videos and 3D Blu-ray videos to SD and HD video formats. And it can preserve 3D effects when your source is 3D Blu-ray movie. NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP graphic acceleration technology has been introduced to bring faster conversion experience. But to my disappointment, the app does not decrypt Blu-ray protections and requires Any DVD HD to be installed in advance for Blu-ray ripping. DVD ripping is not supported.
Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper
With AMD APP, Intel Quick Sync Video and NVIDIA CUDA technology, Aimersoft converts movies faster and saves your time. It rips Blu-ray/DVD into almost all popular video formats and features versatile format templates for many popular devices. Its “Backup” function let users envelop a whole Blu-ray movie into a MKV/DVD into VOB without quality loss. But it does not support Blu-ray ISO or BDMV structure. There's no option for preserving only forced subtitles.
DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper
DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper is the first full-featured Blu-ray ripper software that is enhanced to be able to rip any 2D/3D Blu-rays to popular 2D or 3D videos, even including H.265 and 4K videos, with various format choices efficiently and effortlessly.
With the help of DVDFab Cinavia Removal Solution, it also can permanently remove the Cinavia watermarks from Cinavia infected Blu-rays, to make the resulting videos playable on the playback devices that are equipped with Cinavia detectors, such as a PS3.
And here is more: the best blu-ray ripping software in 2016 for your reference.
Compare all above mentioned Blu-ray rippers, Leawo Blu-ray ripper is still my best choice. Leawo Blu-ray ripper is far more than a Blu-ray to video/audio converter, it can be treated as a Blu-ray player, a Blu-ray editor and a 3D movie creator. Instant media previewing is available with the help of the internal Blu-ray player. The built-in Blu-ray editor allows you to trim video length, add video watermark, crop video size, and adjust video effect. 3D movie creation from source 2D Blu-ray content is also feasible. Furthermore, Leawo Blu-ray Ripper downward supports DVD files as well.
