Easiest way to Play Frozen Blu-ray movie for your lovely kids

An easy solution to backup Blu-ray Frozen to MP4 and AVI, so that you can watch it on iPhone, iPad, childpad, TV and other devices together with your family. 

Yet Frozen is so hot among adults and children that Disney even released a new game of the same name. Fearless optimist Anna, mountain man Kristoff and his reindeer Sven, Elsa with icy powers, hilarious snowman Olaf who's in need of a nose desperately… yet Frozen took forever to develop. My whole family loved this movie. We have already pre-ordered it. And the music is great too.

Before we get this Blu-ray delivered, here's some preparatory work to do – a workable solution to put Blu-ray to TV, Archos ChildPad, iPad or so.

Ok I did some digs online and got something new. It seems most commercial Blu-rays are protected so that you cannot move it to other devices directly. If you want to do so, you'll have to roll off disc protection and convert the clean blu-ray to suitable format like AVI and MP4.

I'm not very savvy on computer and transcoding so I just selected one piece of Blu-ray ripping tool named Pavtube BDMagic. It's very easy to use so I don't have to worry about the parameter. Have tested it with another Blu-ray we own and it works well. Pavtube offers free trial without time limit before purchase, it works the same as retail version but the former adds a watermark in the middle of picture.

Good News! Pavtube Release a New Site - with Product Migration and Name Change.

Its bestselling software product Blu-ray Ripper has been renamed as BDMagic. And to thanks for your continued support, we are holding a 'New Site Special' in which you can get 20% off BDMagic on Windows/Mac platform now:

Blu-ray Frozen to MP4/AVI Ripper workflow:

1. Firstly you need to get an external blu-ray drive, otherwise your computer will not recognize it as most built-in drive only works on DVD. Plug Blu-ray drive to computer, insert Blu-ray disc and launch Pavtube. See the disc-like icon on the top? Click it and you will see your disc name inside, hit it.

It seems this ripper breaks movie protection during the loading process, because once I took my laptop to kitchen where's no signal, the program refused to take any of my discs. In case of that, pls ensure your Internet connection is OK.

2. Choose MP4/AVI format for playback.

There're lots of preset inside "Format" list. I prefer H.264 MP4 as it's widely accepted by most devices, like our iPhones, iPads, PC, TV, Android tablet. Hit "Common Video>H.264 Video(*.mov)":

You can also find AVI preset in this way.

3. Convert Blu-ray movie to MP4/AVI for sharing with family.

Just hit the big "Convert", now you can leave it working and do your own things. Oh don't forget to cancel your computer auto-sleep mode. Wait for moments, click "Open" or "Open output folder" to find the converted MP4/AVI files.

Ok it's done! Transfer your video to iPad, iPhone, TV or other devices and enjoy your time watching it with your family.
