Is lossless 1080p blu ray playback on a Mac possible? Well if Pavtube Studio has anything to do with it, which they do, then their new ByteCopy for Mac will fill the need. This slick little app gives Mac users an easy way to get Blu Ray movie content onto their hard drives for playback with iTunes or other playback software. The way the software works is by ripping Blu Ray or DVD movies into .mkv format. The .mkv format is a container for HD audio and video retaining full 1080p HD video and Dolby TrueHD or 5.1 surround sound.
In addition to being able to rip blu ray content you can also strip out the PGS subtitles for playback from the Mac or burned onto blank BD or DVD discs thus preserving lossless video. Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac offers a very friendly user interface that is easy on the eyes. Using the software is simple as well. Featuring a simple 2 click operation to either make a bit for bit copy or to copy to hard disc.
