Note: Put Blu-ray onto Blu-ray drive before ripping Blu-rays.

Step 1. Run the software and load Blu-ray.

Click "Load file" button to import Blu-ray. It will take only few seconds to rip Blu-ray. Then the software will recognize the real main title of Blu-ray and pick it automatically. You do not need to look for the main title manually.

Note: For some Disney Blu-ray movies will have the fake main title with the similar duration but wrong chapter order. Leawo Blu-ray Ripper cannot recognize it correctly.

Click the selected main title you can preview the whole Blu-ray movies on the preview window on the right, which works like a media player.

Step 2. Check forced subtitles for output.

"Forced subtitle" is optional and uncheck by default. Go to check "Forced subtitles" for output.

Take note that it will output forced subtitles only if it is checked. And you can choose the desired subtitle and audio tracks in the "Subtitle" and "Audio" drop list.

Step 3. Choose output format for iOS device.

Choose the iOS supported formats in the "Format" dropdown list. You can go to "Common Video" or "HD Video" options to find what you like. H.264 MP4 format is better for wathing. It will remain the high quality of Blu-ray and suffer less quality loss.

However, here you are recommended to choose the Apple devices like iPad, iPone, Apple TV, etc directly. It is an easy and quick way to find the compatible format for iTunes 11.

Tips: For some advances users, you can go to adjust video and audio parameters like bitrate, resolution, channels, etc. Click "Settings" button you can go to check and change them as you like.



Step 4. Convert Blu-ray to iOS devices(iPad, iPhone, iPod).

Before conversion you can go to "Browse" your computer to find the folder for output files. Then click "Convert" button to get conversion started. After a while, you can find the generated file for iOS device quickly via "Open" button.

Now open your iTunes and then import the Blu-ray to iTuneslibrary for convenient playback on iOS devices. In this way, you can watch your favorite Blu-ray with forced subtitles on your iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod) wherever you are.

1. Click the "computer" icon on the top to output 1:1 Blu-ray file exactly the same as original.

2. Select "Copy>Directly Copy" in format list to output an intact m2ts file of the main title.
