Reviews: ByteCopy for Mac- An Alternative to Mac MakeMKV?

To backing up your favourite Blu-rays, we need the help of Blu-ray ripping software. Still have no idea about which one is suitable for you? This article will introduce you Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac- as an Alternative to Mac MakeMKV. 

MakeMKV for Mac has been considered as one of the best Mac Blu-ray Ripper apps. It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted)DVD and Blu-ray disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters. A most preferable feature of MakeMKV is fast conversion – it converts as fast as your drive can read data, and takes about only 1 hour to copy a Blu-ray to Mac HDD comparing with 2-8 hours with other Mac Blu-ray rippers/transcoders. 

The MakeMKV for Mac, by any means, is a nice choice for BD ripping on Mac. Can we expect a more considerable Mac Blu-ray ripper than MakeMKV ? 

Well, YES. The release of Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac lets us see alternative to MakeMKV for Mac- it has all the features MakeMKV has and does even more with less steps. 

Good News on May 15th, 2015! Pavtube upgraded BteCopy for Mac to version, which features strong and perfect support for Blu-ray/DVD to H.265/HEVC MP4 encoding on Mac. 

New features of ByteCopy for Mac v4.8.5.1: 

1. Supported to encode H.265/HEVC codec 
2. Optimize coding parameters 
3. Fix some bugs 


Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac is an integrated tool with Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac, the old ByteCopy for Mac, and more favorable features. 

It's an easy-to-use Mac tool to backup files from Blu-ray discs and standard DVDs to MKV container format with multiple audio tracks and subtitles included . More than lossless output, Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac is possible to recode the source movie into MKV/MP4/MOV/M4V video with certain video/audio codecs. It provides hundreds of preset output formats for you to convert the BD/DVD movies to compatible format for iPad, iPad Air, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire HDX, Microsoft Surface RT/Pro, Surface 2/Pro 2, WDTV, etc. In a word, it's an all-in-one Blu-ray and DVD ripper and converter to save. Give it a try and you will be in love with it. 



Trial and Download 

ByteCopy for Mac OS X 

Requires x86 Mac OS X 10.5 or later. (including the Mac Mountain Lion, Mavericks 10.9 and Yosemite 10.10) 

ByteCopy for Windows 

Requires Windows XP, Vista or Win7 (32bit and 64bit), Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 

Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac rips Blu-ray in 2 ways, lossless copy and lossy conversion. In trial version lossless backup runs 7 times only; for loss conversion, a watermark is put on the screen. A full version is offered at $42 USD. The purchase includes a lifetime license and unlimited upgrades. 

Note: Currently you can't edit videos by merging, splitting, trimming, cropping, adding .srt, .ass subtitle files, etc if choosing multi-track output formats. 

Now you see the difference between MakeMKV for Mac and ByteCopy for Mac. 

MakeMKV does lossless Blu-ray/DVD to MKV backup only while ByteCopy not only copy BD/DVD to MKV, but also allows for transcoding. The best part is that it transcodes video stream, audio track and subtitle stream separately . You can keep original video quality and meanwhile convert the TrueHD audio to Dolby Digital 5.1 audio when/if your device does not support 7.1 channels, or shrink the BD contents to videos with lower bitrate to ensure they are played properly on a slow computer or older media player. 

Like MakeMKV, the ByteCopy is also easy of use. Converting a DVD/ Blu-ray Disc is a simple 3-step process. And you can make it a 2-step process by a settled preference. 

Sounds even better than a MakeMKV alternative? Go ahead to try it out then!
