“I just got a BDMV folder of Fast & Furious 7, one of the top favorite movies of mine. I would like to extract the main movie off this BDMV file to save in quality lossless MP4 file on my computer, so that I could then freely watch this high-quality movie on any players on my computer and any of my devices.

Please tell me what you are using and the detailed steps on how to convert BDMV to MP4 file on Windows computer. Appreciate for any advice.”
BDMV file is used by Blu-ray discs to describe the contents of a Blu-ray disc directory. It uses a well-defined filename and directory location and is seen with one of the following file names on a Blu-ray disc:

  1. index.bdmv: describes the file contents in the BDMV directory; found in the BDMV and BDMV/BACKUP directories.
  2. MovieObject.bdmv: describes one or more movie objects; located in the BDMV and BDMV/BACKUP directories.
  3. sound.bdmv: optional file that relates one or more sounds associated with HDMV Interactive Graphic streams applications; located in the BDMV/AUXDATA directory.

Most popular disc authoring programs that support Blu-ray disc burning will open BDMV files, like the free Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC), BDMV Player, and VLC.
