The Best MakeMKV Alternative for Mac and Windows

Convert Any Video Format to Another One on Mac and Windows

MakeMKV can be simply understood as a DVD/Blu-ray to MKV converter which can convert proprietary disc, like DVD, Blu-ray discs, etc to MKV format. Besides, MakeMKV can also stream the decrypted DVD/Blu-ray to some players. MakeMKV is good for users who want to back up DVD/Blu-ray in MKV format or users whose players support to play DVD/Blu-ray, but can not help users whose devices or players do not support to play MKV or DVD/Blu-ray.
