Step 4. Start converting DVD/Blu-ray to lossless MKV

Go back to the main UI and click “Convert” to start conversion from DVD/Blu-ray to lossless MKV with multiple audio tracks and subtitles preserved.

Step 5. Watch the converted DVD/Blu-ray on LED TV

Before watching the converted DVD/Blu-ray movie which has been in lossless MKV format, please make sure that your LED TV is MKV supported. If your LED TV fails to support MKV format, you may get image only and without sound. So alternatively, you can convert your DVD/Blu-ray movie into a common video format which is fully supported by a majority of LED TVs.

As your PC space is limited, you can copy your DVDs into an external hard drive for storage and sharing. Or store Blu-ray movies in a Lacie Thunderbolt drive.
