How to Convert BDMV to MKV/MP4 Video to Play & Save on Windows/Mac

Last Updated on March 12, 2021 by Robert Jackson


Don’t want to spend bucks in buying a Blu-ray disc?

  • Easy, go online and search for some Blu-ray movie download sites. Get a movie file by clicking the Download button.
  • Or, you’re a big Blu-ray fan who has the skill to rip a Blu-ray movie from a Blu-ray disc and succeed.

However, sometimes, instead of getting an MP4 or MKV movie file, we’re likely to download or rip a BDMV folder onto our computer hard drive.

Later, you will find the BDMV folder is so large that it maxes out at 50GB, the size of a Blu-ray disc’s capacity.

Worse still, the BDMV folder cannot run on Windows Media Player or some other media player software. It requires a BDMV player and some skills to run.

Under this circumstance, it seems to be a good idea to convert the BDMV folder to an MP4 or MKV file which is more common and compatible, freeing your computer hard drive and playing the Blu-ray movie easily.

And it’s not tough work to convert the BDMV to MKV/MP4 as long as you use a suitable tool and follow the correct steps. This tutorial will show you all the details. Keep on reading.

Originating from a Blu-ray disc, the BDMV folder is the one that carries all the videos, movies, soundtracks, subtitles, disc menu, and many other disc information.

Blu Ray Disc BDMV File

A BDMV folder has several sub-folders, like PLAYLIST, STREAM, META, etc. Among these sub-folders, you may find some files with the .bdmv extension.

The .bdmv format is used on Blu-ray discs and folders for data related to the disc content, category, and user interactivity.

It’s not a video or audio format, so you cannot play it. Instead, inside a .bdmv file, you can only find some codes and texts.

CompatibilityWorks on almost every computer, phone, tablet, TV, and media player softwareMost phones cannot play MKV;

Some media player software like Windows Media Player cannot play MKV too

To warp up:

  • If your only desire is to play the video as easily as possible, pick MP4.
  • Try MKV if you’re pretty strict about the quality of the frames.

Short for MPEG Transport Stream, the MTS, or we say M2TS format, is mainly used for Blu-ray contents and AVCHD files (videos shot by camcorders).

You may open up your BDMV folder and go to the Stream sub-folder. Inside Stream, you’ll find several .m2ts video files that are the movie and bloopers of this disc/BDMV.
