Leawo Blu-Ray to MKV Converter Review: Convert DVD/Blu-ray to MKV With 1:1 Lossless Quality

MKV is a multimedia container format that can store a unlimited number of videos, audios, pictures and subtitles in just one file. The format is best suited for high definition media players. It is also suited for HDTVs. If you have seen an MKV video file then you may have noticed that the size of this file type is quite large. This is because of the nature of this file which can hold unlimited media. Matroska (MKV) can not be played on most portable media players like iPhone or android smartphones. Since these gadgets mostly use MP4 video formats.


But MKV is used for very high definition videos that can be played on larger screens like Full HD or 4K displays. In this post, we are introducing Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter which rips/converts DVD and Blu-ray disc to MKV format. Since you can not preserve a DVD or a Blu-ray forever and some time later in life they will corrode or get scratched. Corrosion and scratches destroy the disc layers which become unreadable and most DVD/Blu-ray players can't read such discs. So it is better to rip these discs and store them on your PC or external hard drive. Leawo Blu-ray to MKV converter will not only rip your discs but it will make your videos future proof for high definition displays and larger screens.

➜ Introduction to Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter

Leawo Blu-ray to MKV converter is developed by Leawo Software which is developing such software since 2007. We have previously reviewed Leawo Prof. Media - read review, which is an all in one bundled software for video conversion and DVD/Blu-ray ripping with online video downloading and conversion support.

As we told you earlier that DVD and Blu-ray discs can't stay with you forever. They can get corroded or scratched over time. Scratched discs are of no use. So you should convert them to MKV which makes them future proof for viewing on high definition displays.

What is Leawo's 1:1 Lossless Quality

1:1 lossless quality video ripping/conversion means that your DVD/Blu-ray discs are converted to MKV format without loss in quality. The video frame and quality are fully preserved from the previous formats. So that you can enjoy the converted videos on larger displays without seeing any loss in video quality.

➜ Video Processing

Leawo software utilizes all the cores of your CPU for 6X times faster conversion than normal video converter tools. The more cores your CPU have the faster will be the processing. However, it gives the best performance on Intel Core i5 and Core i7 and sixth generation core i3 processors. Older Intel core processors will also help to boost conversion but in a satisfactory way only.

How to Use Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter

This DVD/Blu-ray ripping and converter software is available for Windows and Mac OS. You can download Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter from this link.

  • After installing the software open it and load a disc in your laptop's/desktop's disc ROM.
  • I suggest directly working with a physical disc because it is easier to do so. However, you can also use copied disc folders or a DVD/Blu-ray ISO file.
  • After loading the disc click 'Add Blu-ray/DVD' and hover the mouse over 'Add from CD-ROM' and click the drive label.

  • The video files from the disc will be automatically added to the converter. And you will see three tabbed options i.e 'Full Movie', 'Main Movie', and 'Custom Mode'.

  • In 'Full Movie' mode the entire disc will be added for ripping. In 'Main Movie' mode only the main video having the largest file size will be added. In 'Custom Mode' you can select the files that you want and can skip the rest.
  • In 'Custom Mode' you can always select the right movie file by first playing them in the inbuilt player. Finally, click 'OK' to go to the converter.
  • The converter will show you the format, resolution, time and size. From here you can also change 'Subtitles' and 'Audio'. Click the play button as shown below in this image and you can watch that DVD/Blu-ray within the built-in player. From this player, you can also capture screenshots.

  • Click 'Convert' the green button on top right. A popup will open on a free version. From here you can change the output directory. Click the 'Convert' button to start.

  • Wait till the disc ripping process finishes.
  • After that, you can copy the converted MKV file to your external hard drive or flash drives and directly watch them on your HDTV.

Tweaking the Settings

There are no special settings to change for this software. But you should take care of system performance while the Leawo converter in use. Go to 'Settings' by clicking the gear icon on top right and click 'Performance'. Here select the 'CPU Core'. By default, all the cores are selected. But if you want multitasking performance then reduce the number of CPU cores by 50%. If you are not going to use your PC when the converter is in use then you can select all the cores for faster video processing.
