Convert BD/DVD to lossless MKV for playing on Samsung Smart TV via usb-hard drive
1. Load Blu-ray source.
First of all, insert your Blu-ray to Blu-ray drive and keep networked. Now it´s time to import Blu-ray into the software after launching it. Click "Load files" icon to choose Blu-ray source for importing.
2. Choose output MKV.
In the dropdown list of Format menu, you can find several MKV options for output. Here we recommend "Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (* mkv)" under "Multi-track Video" catalogue. Because it will save multiple video, audio and subtitle tracks form original Blu-ray in output MKV and you won´t suffer any quality loss.
3. Select audio codec for output.
Click "Settings" button on the main interface; you are brought to Multi-task Settings. Here detailed parameters of multiple audio and subtitle tracks are listed and you can change any of them at will.
In default system setting, every track is checked for lossless MKV output. If you want to remove one of them, just uncheck it from the list. Check "Encode" option, you can change audio parameters like codec, channels according to your needs. In this way, if you don´t like DTS audio, you can choose to remove it or convert to AC3 here.
Note: If you change audio parameters under "Encode" option, you will get a encoded multi-track MKV file, not lossless multi-track MKV. Recoding Blu-ray to MKV will take a little more time for conversion than lossless output.
4. Backup Blu-ray to lossless MKV for Samsung Smart TV.
When everything is ready, you can click "Convert" button to start converting Blu-ray to lossless MKV with multiple audio tracks and subtitles keeping.
Once finished, go to "Open" the generated MKV files. Now it is time to transfer converted mkv onto usb-hard drive and enjoy your favorite Blu-ray movies with Samsung Smart TV.
