    Every software works great!

    Just a quick note to tell you that I have purchased 3 of your software. Every software works great! I am so happy that I purchased Pavtube software!!! Keep up the great work and hope that you can come up with a Bluray ripper software that will convert a 50 gig To 25 gig disc.! Jun. 4, 2012


    Thanks to CUDA

    After using the cuda code, i went from 6,5 hours to 1,5 hours of making the same mkv. Thats 4,3 times faster than before. So saying that its 3 times faster with cuda i so true. So i only needed the videocard and not a whole new system , thanks to CUDA. Jan 4, 2012


    I enjoy using the program

    All the other programs I used where either very slow, didn't take the movie off in lossless quality or couldn't get the information off the disc. ByteCopy always gets the movie off the disc in lossless quality with no hassles. I also get to choose the subtitles and the audio channels and I get all the chapters as well which I love. It does exactly what I want it to do and it does it efficiently and effortlessly. Overall I enjoy the functionality, simplicity and the efficiency of ByteCopy. I enjoy using the program.June 2, 2011


    Good at preserving chapters

    Pavtube ByteCopy seemed to be good at preserving chapters. Picture quality and sound quality was great. I didn't notice any picture/audio sync problems which I did when using other methods. May 26, 2011


    Handles subtitles well

    I tried a lot of SW, but no one handles subtitles as well as Bytecopy processes. I'll certainly recommend to everyone BytecCopy because it is really complete. What interests me above all is to reduce the size of a mkv file, and to be honest with you, I have tried many programs and those that are closer to Bytecopy are "VidCoder" and "XMedia Recode".The first uses the excellent Codec "Handbrake" (why do not you also implement in Bytecopy?) but does not handle subtitles of BD.The second one is complete, with a good codec, but too complicated.I also tried commercial programs like the famous DVDFab, but it even goes in "crash" when trying to reduce the size of a mkv file (generated with "MakeMKV"). With other mkv files generated with other SW, DVDFab is OK but it can handle only one language and does not see the subtitles. Apr. 14, 2011

    CUDA technology was my reason for buying the software

    I am happy with the software, although I still have to use the software on a gpu to speed it up. ByteCopy’s CUDA technology was my reason for buying the software. Mar. 23, 2011


    Successfully convert VC-1 m2ts to H264 without any audio track delay

    I have just purchased your Bytecopy for VC-1 converting to H264. Well, I was trying to backup my CSI Season 1 Blu-ray to an external hard drive. It was done pretty well, which successfully convert VC-1 m2ts to H264 without any audio track delay. That video format is interlaced, so I switched up "Deinterlacing" in Preference and it did amazingly well! Mar. 15, 2011


    Nice as it has CUDA Support

    ByteCopy is a nice little ripper program, I got it mainly for quick rips. Nice as it has CUDA Support. It works fine and is a very good program for the novice user. Mar. 10, 2011


    Put many audios and many subtitles

    I just use the ByteCopy on almost 10 blu-ray discs and several dvd-9 discs. It extremely fast on my Athlon PhenomII 3.4Ghz+8GBRam and Gigabyte GTX460. The results are exceptional far more than expected. What I really like is the ByteCopy can put many audios and many subtitles just like the real Blu-ray discs. This capability alone can sell especially for foreigners like myself. I'd like to listen to English and read English subtitle to learn English while sometimes I'd like to switch to my mother-tongue language if I don't understand the story. Feb. 23, 2011


    Nice product

    I bought the full version after testing out the trial. Nice product. I will test it much more extensively now that I have the full version. I have a CUDA enabled video card (GTX 460). I wish the conversion rate was faster. It's not bad at about 1.7 the length of the movie (h.264 @ 8000kbps), but the benchmark is definitely 1:1 or less than the run time of the movie. Considering the GTX460 is an extremely powerful processor, the conversion rate should be faster. I have tested a lot of blu-ray rippers and this one is the only one that offers to keep the HD audio. As long as this software keeps up with the copyright protections, I’ll be pretty happy. Thanks! Feb. 17, 2011


    Good compression and multi subs

    Thanks to you guys. The bytecopy works great. good compression and multi subs. thums up Its the software i have been looking for.. so one's again.. THX. Jan. 27, 2011


    Store more than one audio stream in the MKV container

    I was able to store more than one audio stream in the MKV container and then choose during playback (I love to listen to the English sound track, but when my girlfriend watches we need to switch to French). Jan. 25, 2011

    Q: How to update Pavtube Software?

    A: Please click here to see the detailed steps.

    Q: I have ever purchased your Windows software and now I changed my PC to Mac.
    Can I install this software onto my Mac? Or can you send me a Mac version?

    A: All of our softwares are platform-independent ones but not cross-platform. So a Windows software cannot be installed onto a Mac computer and vice versa.
    If you need a Mac version, please kindly contact with Pavtube support team at
    Or if you need a Windows version, please kindly contact with Pavtube support team at
    Discount will be available for a second purchase.

    Q: What are the restrictions of Pavtube ByteCopy trial version?

    A: a. The "Lossless" output format can be used 7 times only.b. When transcoding Blu-ray contents with "HD Player" or customized format, watermark will be put on the screen of generated videos..

    Q: I just purchased your Pavtube ByteCopy. However, the generated MKV file cannot be played on my Windows Media Center or Windows Media Player.

    A: Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player natively do not support MKV format files. To play back MKV file in WMC or WMP you need to install a MKV codec pack called Shark007 Codec Pack.
    If you have Windows 7 system download the codec pack here.
    If you have Windows Vista or XP system download the codec pack here.

    Q: I want to use your Pavtube to rip my blu-ray disc, but I have no external blu-ray drive.
    Can you recommend me an external blu-ray drive for Mac or Windows?

    A: Yes. We would like to recommend you several Mac or Windows compatible external blu-ray drives available from Amazon.
    For Mac external blu-ray drive recommendation please see here.
    For Windows external blu-ray drive recommendation please see here.

    Q: Can I get TrueHD 7.1 and DTS-MA 7.1 channels?

    A: It depends on your source. When there are TrueHD and DTS-MA audio tracks in original Blu-ray files, you can keep them by choosing "Lossless" output format for conversion.

    Q: How do I down convert TrueHD and DTS-MA to Dolby Digital (AC-3) 5.1 and DTS 5.1 audio?

    A: Select a Title and click the "Edit Title", check the "Encode" box. Then set audio codec to AC3 or DTS, and audio channels to 6. In this way higher quality audio track will be converted to AC3 or DTS 5.1 audio.

    Q: I don't like to select audio track and subtitles for each BD/DVD. Can I set it once and for all?

    A: Yes. You can set audio and subtitle languages that you always like to keep in Preference screen. Follow "Tools" menu-> "Preference"-> "Audio"/ "Subtitle" tab to set desired languages, and the software will remember you settings.

    Q: Does the software preserve chapters' information?

    A: Yes. Each title and chapter is preserved in the way they are created into Blu-ray Disc/DVD when you using Pavtube ByteCopy.

    Q: Does Pavtube ByteCopy support CUDA? How do I use CUDA to accelerate conversion speed?

    A: Yes. CUDA encoding workflow is supported by Pavtube ByteCopy. And the CUDA decoder is applied by default in availability of a CUDA ready NVIDIA graphics card.
