How to rip DVD to an MKV file?

Matroska multimedia container format ‘MKV’ is widely used in the media conversion industry, and its most important feature is that it supports a large number of stream formats, so DVD-Cloner adopted this format. You can keep all the video, audio, subtitle and other information in the DVD. So we recommend the MKV format when you rip DVD. The following is about how to rip DVD to MKV using DVD-Cloner.

  1. Install the latest version of DVD-Cloner (or DVD-Cloner Gold, or DVD-Cloner Platinum).
  2. Insert the DVD that you need to rip into the drive.
  3. Run DVD-Cloner and enter the Express interface. Click the “RIP TO MKV” button, enter a file name in the ‘Save As’ window that pops up, and then wait about 20 minutes to complete the ripping work.

By default, DVD will be converted to H.264 format, and the file size is about 3GB including all tracks. If you want to convert it to H.265 format or change the output size, you need to modify the settings in “Setup”. Please refer to How to encode DVD or Blu-ray to H.265 format.
