“I recently purchased a NAS to store all my music/photos on. I can stream stuff to my iPhone/iPad using the NAS software. What I want to do is rearranging and converting all my Blu-ray videos to store in my NAS, but I’m not sure which format to convert to for playing nicely with my Apple TV, Xbox 360, iPhone, iPad etc. I wanna get some advice as to what format to rip in and what software to use?”
The problem you face is how to rip Blu-ray to a NAS proper format with best settings for NAS streaming while maintaining the highest quality possible. As far as we know, MP4, MKV are commonly supported formats for computer, Apple TV, iOS devices, Roku player, etc via streaming videos from NAS. Thus, what you need is a professional Blu-ray ripping tool that supports converting Blu-ray to MP4/MKV for NAS streaming with the best quality.
I opened Google and searched for “how to convert blu-ray to mkv for nas”, then found an app named Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper.
This NAS Blu-ray converter program is capable of transcoding Blu-ray, Blu-ray ISO, DVD, DVD ISO, IFO, Video-TS, etc., to NAS Drives streaming with no quality loss. What’s more, it provides 150+ ready presets for iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab and other mobile devices. And with the new optimized NVIDIA CUDA & AMD acceleration technology, it runs an unbeatable 30X faster than others.
I mainly use it for ripping my own Blu-ray and DVD library to video file for storing on my own NAS drive. Now, i have had all my discs available in video file format on the NAS drive, this is really a convenient way of using an extensive library of discs. Perfect software!

Step 1: Load Blu-ray movies
Install and launch Blu-ray to MKV/MP4 Converter, and then click the disc icon to import your source movies to this program. Set your wanted subtitles and audio track from the drop-down box of “Subtitles” and “Audio” tab.
Step 2: Select an output format
To convert Blu-ray to MP4, MKV for NAS storing and streaming, just click on the dropdown menu of “Format”, and then choose MKV, H.264 MP4 from Common Video profile list. If you want to keep 1080p resolution as source movie, you can choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mp4) or MKV HD Video(*.mkv) as output format.
Tip: If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3. Rip BD movies to NAS
