It recognizes TrueHD and DTS-MA 7.1 channels and output the track at 5.1 channels at best and allows you to select any subtitle you like, as long as it is there. All tracks and subtitles packaged in the Blu-ray disc are available. In the following guide I will show you how to keep English subtitle and track during the ripping procedure.


Step 1. Launch Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac and load Blu-ray movies to it. You can click "DVD Folder" and "IFO File" to load BD movies into this program. Do not browse to certain folder or M2TS file, just choose the BDMV folder, the ripper will load all the M2TS files.


Step 2. Once files are loaded, right-click on the file list and choose “Unselect all” and then tick off the checkbox before the main movie. By main movie I mean the M2TS file which has longest duration. The extra files can be left unchecked, since the whole movie is included in the main movie. Click the drop-down  list of "Subtitle", then all the subtitle info in the Blu-ray will be  shown clearly, including language and stream ID, so you can select your needed  language as your subtitle at will. What you need is to find English and check it. Now click the drop-down list of “Audio” and select English track. The dropdown list shows you the detailed information such as the audio language, codec, channels etc. You can use the preview window to check your selection.



Step 3. Click on the pull down menu of "Format" to select output format, at the same time, if  you want to make good control of the output file quality and file size, you can click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters like bit rate,  frame rate, sample rate, aspect ratio, audio channels, etc.


Step 4. When all settings are done, simply click on the "Convert" button to start BD ripping as well as the subtitle ripping. After finished, you can click "Open" button to get the output files with your specified subtitle and audio.
