You probably would like to convert each DVD video into a single MKV file so you can play them easily especially on media devices like iPad, Galaxy Tab, HD TV. In this article, we’ll show how to extract MKV videos from DVD Disc. If you are looking for ways to convert DVD to MKV, just read on to find out the way.
The MKV format (Matroska video) is an open free Container format. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. And the size is often much bigger than common video and keep high quality. It is an envelope for which there can be many audio, video and subtitles streams, allowing the user to store a complete movie or CD in a single file. For these reasons, many movie fans are strongly willing to rip and convert DVD to MKV as a backup.
To convert DVD into one single MKV file, you need a professional DVD Ripping tool. The best program I can recommend for convering DVD disc into one single MKV file is Brorsoft DVD Ripper. With it, you can quickly rip DVD movies to MKV with sound, subtitle tracks, thumbmail, along with menus and chapter structure. It also provides hundreds of preset outputs for you to directly convert and play DVD on iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox, Android tablets and phones as well as all other popular video formats like MP4, MOV, FLV, WMV, MPG, etc.

How to convert DVD to MKV for HD backup
Note: You can’t keep DVD menus in an .mkv format. If you want to transfer parts (e.g main movie only) or all (exact copy incl. menu, extras, subs) of the DVD to your hard drive, this DVD ripper offers you two options: a. Copy movie only from DVD discs; b. Backup DVD with original structures.
STEP 1. Import DVD files
Insert your DVD disc to the drive, then launch the DVD ripping software and click the “Load Disc” button to have the DVD content imported.
STEP 2. Choose MKV as output format
Select “MKV(Matroska) Video (*.mkv)” as output format from “Common Video” category under the drop-down list of “Format”. If you want to get better HD video quality, just select “MKV HD Video (*.mkv)” from “HD Video” category.
STEP 3. Advanced Settings
Click the “Settings” icon, and you can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface according to your needs and optimize the output file quality. For DVD movie source, there’s no need for compressing(It is relatively a small file size). Just keep the video size as original(720*480). And upscaling the video size won’t make any difference of your video quality.
STEP 4. Start ripping DVD to MKV
Hit the “Convert” button at the bottom of the main interface to rip DVD to MKV. Minutes later, you can click “Open” to quickly find the converted MKV video. Just do what you want.
