CloneBD lets you copy any unprotected Blu-ray to your hard drive, or any blank Blu-ray disc. With just a few clicks you can choose to make a partial copy of selected titles, audio languages, and subtitle languages, or you can do a straight 1:1 complete copy of your Blu-ray. CloneBD makes perfect 1:1 clones, but also compresses BD-50 to a single BD-25, BD-9 or BD-5. CloneBD will also convert your Blu-ray discs to all popular file formats, such as .mp4, .mkv, .avi, and any devices like Android, iPhone/iPad, Smart TV, or any other current device. CloneBD supports all regions (A,B,C). There is no need to install a third party driver, since internal UDF 2.50 parser is already included. CloneBD supports multi-core CPUs and hardware acceleration for fastest copy speed.
Convert your 3D Blu-ray to .mkv and take advantage of the high compression standard H.265/HEVC.

CloneBD - Release Notes
Changelog CloneBD Blu-ray Media Converter 188.8.131.52 2017-07-19 - New: support frame packed 3D (MVC) in MKV files lossless and lossy important note: only a few PC-players support this 3D format, including PowerDVD 16 or higher, Kodi - only a few linux version and Stereoscopic Player, also, lossless MVC don't properly work with PowerDVD, reencoded copies work fine. For now, only software de-/encoding is possible and is fairly slow. - New: added setting to eject source disc after processing - Change: security update for ElbyCDIO.sys - New: preview player allows to switch display between 2D and SBS formats (R/L view can be used for "squinting eyes 3D" for quick verification) - Change: for lossless copies, remove the beaver from the preview, this was confusing because users thought, it would show up in the copy as well - Improve: display correct bitrates/output sizes when encoding MVC output - Fix: user interface - switching between 2D and MVC output sometimes left HEVC codec disabled (greyed out) - Workaround: Windows MediaFoundation Parser bug (Windows Media Player/"Movies & TV") couldn't parse MKV files, that were created with "extra track for forced subtitles" - Fix: NTSC non-telecine incorrectly detected as telecined so field splitting failed - Fix: size estimator is off, when many picture in picture streams and an over-abundance of subtitles is in the source - Fix: write global header, when converting VC-1 video AVC/MKV - Fix: secondary DTS audio (picture in picture) - Fix: 2D playlists sometimes got hidden by their 3D counterparts - Fix: size estimation inaccurate when creating MKV/MP4 when playlist contains the same clip multiple times - Fix: Multiple corruptions of BD data - Fix: Early terminating streams (data corruption due to preprocessing with 3rd party tools and then postprocessing in CloneBD) - Fix: Subtitle display on some Opus players - Fix: Audio/video drift on some PAL encoded discs (that have been "telecined" from NTSC and not sped up) - Fix: Further support for 192 kHz/96 kHz Dolby Atmos discs - Fix: Further support for some audio discs (LPCM, 24-bit, 192 kHz) -
