The selection of output format depends on your specific need:

1. If you only need to store Blu-ray digitally and put the movie library to the Google Drive, you don't need to consider about the format matter. Generally, almost all the mainstream video and audio formats are supported by the Google Drive. If you are still unsure of the media format, check the table below.

Supported Video Formats: WebM, .MPEG4, .3GPP, .MOV, .AVI, .MPEGPS, .WMV, .FLV, .ogg
Supported Audio Formats: MP3, MPEG, WAV, .ogg, .opus

2. If the quantity of Blu-rayu movies to be saved is large, try to choose the output format with comparatively low quality (for small output size), and oppositely, choose the high quality.

3. If you desire to play the converted Blu-rays on Apple TV, iPad, iPhone Samsung table, PS4, Xbox One and any of other portable device, you can choose directly from the device profile listed on corresponding device category.

4. For general uses, MP4 in Common Video is recommended, as it is widely supported by many devices and media players. If need to get a good balance between file size and output quality, flexible options are offered to further reduce the size of the ripped video. Click Settings button beside the profile bar and enter into the parameter settings page.

Rip Blu-ray to MP4 for uploading to Google Drive

Recommended video size settings:

◆ You're not suggested to adjust the frame rate and aspect ratio, if not necessary.
◆ Lower the bitrate to a lower level. Adjusting the original Normal quality to bitrates of around 1800-2000 is acceptable and can make your ripped MP4 movie around 1.2-1.8GB in size, 96% smaller than the original Blu-ray movie, and to the naked eyes, it's highly unlikely to distinguish the difference between the original movie and the re-encoded video.
◆ Lower the resolution. Typical Blu-ray videos are 1920×1080 (Full HD). Adjust the resolution to lower 1280×720 or higher won't make any quality difference.
