Bringing together the tools and tutorials to produce BD9 (blueray on DVD) and BDR discs.
At some point, you'll probably want to backup your unencrypted DVD to blu-ray BD-9 format in High Def. (1280x720 for NTSC). This article will show you how.

At some point, you'll probably want to backup your unencrypted DVD to blu-ray BD-9 format in Standard Def. (720x480 for NTSC). This article will show you how.

Once we've created the proper blu-ray structures on our hard drive, we need some way to burn it to a format (UDF 2.5) that our blu-ray player will recognize and play. While there are many commercial dvd-burning applications that do this, there is currently only one FREE application that will do this: ImgBurn (version 126.96.36.199 or later.)

There are many applications that will encode your video into blu-ray compatable AVC. One of the best, and least expensive (its free!) is x264. The easiest way to install and use x264 is by installing MeGUI and letting it update to the latest x264. (MeGUI requires AVISynth installed.)

Quite often, your original video source will be mpeg-2, grabbed either from your satellite, your cable, your video capture card, or even a decrypted DVD video. These are usually multiplexed as ts (Transport Stream), m2ts (MPEG-2 Transport Stream), or just normal mpg/mpeg/vob (Program Stream.) DGIndex can be used along with AviSynth, to process all of these.

In order to convert mpeg-2 files (including VOB files) to blu-ray compatible AVC files, we'll need a reliable, accurate, and transparent mpeg-2 decoder that will work as a source for any encoders. Avisynth with the DGMPGDec and decomb plugins fits the bill.
