Using GeForce GTX 900 Series GPUs to Rip 4K Blu-ray to HEVC MKV
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) promises the same level of picture quality as H.264/AVC, however, there will be better compression so the file size can be smaller. This is important when dealing with 4K or UHD media. As the resolution increases, the file size increases along with it. HEVC promises better compression so these files are not massive. So if you are working on a project of converting your 4K Blu-ray to a smaller format that you can store on the computer, you can choose to rip 4K Blu-ray to HEVC MKV files.
A 30-40GB Blu-Ray can be ripped to a 7-15GB h.265/HEVC .mkv file. With this ripping, you save a lot of space. In addition, if you are using GeForce GTX 900 Series GPUs, more ripping time can be saved on condition that your 4K Blu-ray ripping tool supports HEVC NVIDIA acceleration encoding. NVIDIA Encoder (NVENC) API enables software developers to access the high-performance hardware H.264 and HEVC (H.265) video encoder in Kepler and Maxwell class NVIDIA GPUs. If you can’t use NVENC, you also can use NVIDIA CUDA acceleration.
How to Convert 4K Blu-ray to H.265 MKV using GeForce GTX 900 Series GPUs?
Comparing to Blu-ray, 4K UHD Blu-ray is harder to decrypt cause it has more complex encryption. There are many Blu-ray Rippers on the market but few of them can rip 4K Blu-ray, especially rip 4K Blu-ray to HEVC MKV. Even though your Blu-ray ripping tool can decrypt 4K Blu-ray and re-encode it to HEVC video, if your Blu-ray Ripper doesn’t support NVIDIA NVENC or NVIDIA CUDA hardware acceleration, it will cost you too much time cause HEVC encoding is GPU-taking.
However, the new release of Pavtube Studio of its Pavtube ByteCopy removed this upset. In the latest update, Pavtube ByteCopy version 126.96.36.199 can rip 4K Blu-ray to HEVC MKV with up to 30x times ripping speed utilizing the most advanced hardware acceleration NVIDIA CUDA & AMD APP by H.264/H.265 codec, which can give users video transcoding speed than before.
Pavtube ByteCopy can decrypt 4K Blu-ray BD+, AACS, Region Codes, MKB V61, MKB V62 then convert 4K M2TS to HEVC MKV, HEVC MKV with up to 500% speed using GPU acceleration. In the test, when I am using Nvidia Titan X Pascal, I took an hour to rip The Revenant to H.265 MKV by enabling GPU encode acceleration. It will cost less time if you rip 4K Blu-ray to H.264 MKV and copy Blu-ray and DVD to H.265 MKV, H.265 MKV.
Start to Decrypt 4K Blu-ray to HEVC MKV using GeForce NVIDIA GPU Acceleration
Step 1. Load 4K Blu-ray movies
Install and launch the best 4K Blu-ray to H.265 Converter program. Insert your Blu-ray disc into your BD drive, and click “Load from disc” icon to load your 4k Blu-ray movies and DVD discs. You can also import movies files from Blu-ray folder, ISO and DVD folder and DVD ISO/IFO.
Step 2: Choose H.265 MKV
Click “Format” to open the drop-down window and choose HD MKV video in “HD Video” catelog and set video codes to x265 in “Settings” to choose to rip 4K Blu-ray to H.265 MKV. Meanwhile, you are allowed to adjust profile parameters like display resolution, bitrate, frame rate, audio sample rate to achieve the best video and audio playback on your device.
Step 3. Utilizing Nvidia GPU Hardware Acceleration In ByteCopy
Now, move your cursor to “Tools” button on the top of the main interface to choose “Options”. Then you can enable GPU Encode acceleration. You need to check if your graphic card supports CUDA acceleration from here. .
Step 4: Start ripping 4k Blu-ray to H.265/HEVC MKV
Hit on the “Convert” button and 4k Blu-ray to H.265/HEVC video Conversion begins. When the conversion is done, open output folder, find the ripped movie inoutput folder.
Apart form GeForce GTX 900 Series GPUs, if you are running any one of the below NVIDIA Graphics cards, you can rip 4K Blu-ray to HEVC with NVIDIA CUDA hardware acceleration.
