Lossless Blu-ray Backup: why choose MKV format?

When considering to backup Blu-ray movies without quality loss, MKV (Matroska) would be out first choice. Why? MKV not only makes 1:1 copy of original Blu-ray disc, it also has a number of advantages other format cannot achieve. Here we give you the all reasons to choose MKV format for lossless Blu-ray Backup.

1st reason. Chapter markers, multiple audio and subtitle tracks preservation.
MKV format has the ability of containing unlimited number of video, audio and subtitle tracks, in other words, you can save entire movie content in original Blu-ray disc with multiple sound and subtitle tracks, chapter markers and movie thumbnail into a single MKV file.

2nd reason. Blu-ray/DVD lossless quality backup.
MKV is such a flexible container format that supports various codes, including H.264, VC-1, AC3, DTS, etc. Almost all Blu-ray movies are saved as H.264/MPEG-4 encoded .m2ts files with AC3 or DTS audio (a small percent of BD movies use VC-1 codec and PCM 5.1 audio), in that case MKV is mostly compatible with Blu-ray movies and it is possible to keep original H.264 video codec when converting Blu-ray M2TS clips to MKV container without en-decoding, lossless video quality is retained.

3rd reason. Widely supported video format by media player—MKV.
Many container formats are open and free including MKV, and many media players like WDTV Live and Popcorn accept it for video playback, no need for transcoding again which saves lots of time.

4th reason. Can anything be more flexible?
