    Hello,
    Even though I created this account many years ago, I’m actually new around here. So sorry if I am posting this on the wrong place, or if the question is redundant.
    Anyway, I have a quick question about converting blurays to MP4.

    I am a teacher and I’m always showing movie clips in my classes.
    I usually get the clips from my own movie collection.
    In order to get the clips, first I rip the entire movie to my computer.
    To do this, I use a very old version of DVDFab and convert the movie to MP4.

    Once that’s done, I use Freemake Video Converter to edit the clip that I need.

    I used to do this with DVDs, but lately I’ve been using blurays. I thought that the quality would be a lot better, but it is not as high as I was expecting.
    I think that the way I am converting the bluray to MP4 is not the best.

    I was wondering if someone out there knows which video format is the best to preserve the quality of the video.
    Also, having to rip the entire movie just for a clip is not the most efficient way to do this.
    So if you happen to know a better way to get the clips without having to rip the entire film, please let me know.

    Also, if you have any software suggestions, feel free to share. If the software happens to be free (like Freemake), even better!

    Thanks a lot!

    BluRay video format is typically H.264 but can be MPEG-2. Both are wrapped in BDMV/BDAV.

    Handbrake will allow you to select chapters, if there are any.

    There are loads of tutorials on Google for Bluray ripping

    Hope that helps
