BestHD Blu-Ray to MPEG Converter is an application that can rip Blu-ray discs and convert movies not only to MPEG videos, but also to other formats, such as VOB and Video CD. It's capable of creating HD clips and preparing videos for playback on Xbox.
Setting up this tool takes minimal time and effort, since there are no special options, prerequisite software products, or third-party offers involved.
When it comes to the interface, BestHD Blu-Ray to MPEG Converter adopts a user-friendly window with a neatly structured layout, where you can get started by opening a Blu-ray movie from disc or folder.
It's possible to preview clips in a built-in media player and take snapshots, pick the output profile and saving directory, select the preferred audio and subtitle tracks, clone the selected titles, as well schedule the PC to shut down, hibernate or enter standby mode when the conversion is over.
The program can be set to create chapter and album folders. Furthermore, you can modify the default saving directory and format (BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF) for screenshots. Settings can be restored to default anytime.
It didn't put a strain on the computer's performance in our testing, thanks to the fact that it needed a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly. Conversion tasks were carried out fast.
On the other hand, it failed on a couple of occasions to load the Blu-ray disc contents, remaining in an endless "loading" state. We must also take into account that BestHD Blu-Ray to MPEG Converter hasn't been updated for a long time and may have compatibility issues with later Windows editions. Nevertheless, you can test it for yourself.
