Summary: This tutorial briefs you on how to convert region B Blu-ray discs, or add SRT

Q: “ I need a tool which can help me adding SRT files from Region B Blu-ray discs. (I'm trying to learn Italian!) I have been googled a while about “ related to software for creating SRT files from disc” but still have no idea on these. Can you give me some suggestions?”
Blu-ray has instituted a Region Coding scheme, however, it is more logical than current DVD Region Codes. For Blu-ray Discs, there are three regions, designated as follows:
Region A: U.S., Japan, Latin America, East Asia (except China).
Region B: Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand
Region C: China, Russia, India, remaining countries.
However, despite the provisions for Blu-ray Disc region coding, many Blu-ray Discs are released without region coding.
At first, you need to bypass or crack Blu-ray region codes.
If you don’t want to have your Blu-ray disc from another region lying idle on the shelf. You can choose to rip commercial Blu-ray to hard drive. With Pavtube ByteCopy, you can backup Blu-ray disc from region A/B/C to M2TS video onto hard drive for playback with media players o your region. It can preserve the original resolution and quality. What’s more, it enables you to rip Blu-ray to H.265, M3U8, MP4, MKV, MOV, etc video and FLAC, WAV, MP3 audio for your other media players, NTSC, hard drives, servers, cloud storage, game consoles and portable devices at ultra fast speed. Here is the reivew.
Second, you can Creating SRT files from Region B Blu-ray discs
Maybe some tools can help you extract PGS subtitles or convert .sup subtitles to .srt, but I guess you’ll agree with me that most BD/DVD ripping tools out there handle video and audio pretty well while unfortunately just do not manage subtitles that good at all or forgot to include subtitles. If you would like to watch Blu-ray disc without region limitation with SRT sbutitles, this article below the definition region codes and how to bypass the blu-ray region codes built into their BD players.
Luckily, we found Pavtube ByteCopy which can be by far the exclusive Blu-ray/DVD ripping tool to extract multi-language *.srt subtitles directly. For foreign movies requiring subtitles, the .srt subtitles could be easily extracted in 10 minutes, and separated all multi-language subtitle files from Blu-ray, which would then play in most all computers and media players.
