Guide on converting Blu-ray to Amazon Fire TV supported file format

September 8, 2017

Here we show you how to rip Blu-ray to H.264 MP4 for Amazon Fire TV in details.

Source From: Convert Blu-ray to Amazon Fire TV with ease

NVIDIA SHIELD will undeniably appeal to enthusiasts who seek maximum performance with no regard to the cost of the device. But for most people, Amazon Fire TV is a better option. Despite costing much less than the SHIELD, this streaming media player supports 4K, voice control, and our favorite media player software—Kodi.

But even without Kodi installed, the Fire TV can still do a lot. You can watch over 300,000 TV episodes and movies, enjoy more than 7,000 apps, games, and Alexa skills, and listen to millions of songs are available to stream on Amazon Fire TV through Pandora, Amazon Music, and iHeartRadio. All Amazon Prime subscribers get free storage in Amazon Drive, where they can store their entire photo collections and easily share them on the big screen.

Although Fire TV is a great tablet for playing Blu-ray movies, unfortunately it only supports a few video formats like widely used MP4, and the movies on DVDs (VOB) or Blu-rays are not playable on Amazon Fire TV.



In order to solve it, here I recommend a program named Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper to you, which is a outstanding tool working on ripping and converting the movies on Blu-rays and DVDs to Amazon Fire TV supported video (MP4). With this program, you can powerfully bypass all copy protection and region code from commercial movies and then convert the protected Blu-ray movies to Fire TV playable video and audio formats listed below:
Video formats: H.264 1080p30, H.265 1080p30
Audio formats: AAC-LC, HE-AACv1 (AAC+), HE-AACv2 (eAAC+), AC3 (Dolby Digital), eAC3 (Dolby Digital Plus), FLAC, MIDI, MP3, PCM/Wave, Vorbis, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, Dolby Audio, 5.1 surround sound, 2ch stereo, and HDMI audio pass through up to 7.1

If you are a Mac OS X user, please turn to Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.

Simply click Settings bar and you can tweak the video size, bitrate, frame rate, etc. Amazon Fire TV supports 1080p streaming and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound but is dependent on internet bandwidth of the user.
