    How to Convert Blu-ray to H.265 Video to Greatly Reduce the Output Size?

    Many people prefer Blu-ray movies to pursue the high-definition video effect. However, it's common knowledge that Blu-ray movie usually comes with bigger size that greatly occupies your physical space. A BD50 has more than five times bigger than a DVD-9. Under this circumstance, what should we do? Give up the high-definition Blu-ray and turn to much smaller DVD? Actually, you don't need to sacrifice that much.

    HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), aka H.265, is an advanced video coding technology that can double compress the data compression compared with H.264 to greatly reduce the output size, while presents even higher output quality when it comes to rip and convert Blu-ray.

    Sothink Blu-ray Ripper, as an up-to-date and powerful Blu-ray ripper software is designed with such an advanced coding technology, and provides two H.265 options: MP4 H.265 and MKV H.265 in normal 2D video part, 3D video part and even 4K video part.

    Following is the how-to guide about how to rip and convert Blu-ray to H.265 video to greatly reduce the output size with Sothink Blu-ray Ripper.
