Rip DVD/Blu-ray to MP4, MKV, AVI with multi-track on Windows 8.1/8/XP/7

This guide will leads you to easily get your Blu-ray/DVD contens to MP4, MKV, AVI format in multi-track format on Windows 8.1/8/XP/7 so you can switch to the desired language during movie playback.

I am trying to compress some DVD (and some Blu-ray) to h.264 to get my discs be read by VLC. Then how can Io keep at least two audio tracks as well as two subtitles tracks (ex: both English and French audio and subtitles tracks). With VLC, I would then be able to select which audio track to hear, and which subtitle track to display, if any.

I looked at the latest versions of DVDFab, FairUse Wizard, AutoGK and HandBrake. Unless I am missing something, none of them support preserving two audio tracks AND two subtitle tracks. DVDFab only supports one audio track; FairUse only supports one subtitle track; AutoGK does not seem to do h.264 at all and HandBrake seems to be limited to a single subtitle track as well. Please note that I just tried these software once and may have skipped over some nices features.

So I am wondering if there is a software (free or not) that can do that? Please note that I am quite new to BD/DVD conversion and would prefer a software that's relatively easy to use, i.e. with simplified options or some sort of pre-validated presets. Can anyone comment on the right toolset and procedure?
