Blu-ray VC-1 to H.264 MKV with desired audio track

These are the video codecs usually used in Blu-ray movie: MPEG-2 Part 2, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and SMPTE VC-1. Blu-ray Disc encoded in MPEG-2 video usually would be a single-layer disc that holds up to 25GB, with the addition of Microsoft’s VC-1, a video codec specification that has been standardized by SMPTE and implemented by Microsoft, the Blu-ray Disc’s capacity is double sized while still delivering the picture quality that consumers demand from high-definition technology. Here is a same dilemma for VC-1 Blu-ray collection owners that how to convert or transcode Blu-ray movies in VC-1 to H.264 MKV?

NOTE: When transcoding 1080p/1080i VC-1 to MKV with Pavtube ByteCopy using the above settings, Blu-ray video streams are converted from VC-1 to H.264, while original Blu-ray HD audio streams (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM, LPCM) are retained. So you have desired titles/chapters, audios, subtitles and desired video codec in an MKV file.

5. Start Blu-ray VC-1 to H.264 MKV conversion.
