To select a video you would like to convert hit the Browse... button next to the Input File Name field. In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary video file:
Find the directory with your Blu-ray video, then open the BDMV folder located in it, select the index.bdmv file and press Open to load your video to the program.
Click the button corresponding to the desired output format on the Formats tab of the Main Toolbar or on the More Formats Toolbar (click the More Formats button to open it).
In the Profile field select the preset that suits your needs.
You can also click the Advanced >> button and adjust output parameters manually in the Output File section of the Conversion Options tab. In this case please note that the less values you set the less file size and quality of your output video you get and vice versa.
If the selected codec allows to evaluate the maximal output file size, you can see the Max File Size in the Output File section.
If your Blu-ray video contains several languages or subtitle sets you might want to delete the unnecessary audio tracks or subtitles keeping only the needed ones. Select data you need in the appropriate drop-down lists of the Input File section.
Click the Browse... button next to the Output File Name field and select a location on your HDD for the output video file.
Press the Convert Now! button to start converting.
You can see the overall progress if you hit the Advanced >> button.
The conversion process may take a lot of time depending on your computer capabilities.
As soon as the conversion is completed you can find your converted video in the destination folder and use it according to your needs.
