Guide- Convert ISO to Plex Media Server playable file type on Mac

Step 1. Launch Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac and load disc.

Firstly you need an external blu-ray drive; there's no special requirements of the drive model as long as it's supported by your Mac. Click the top left icon and it will detect the inserted Blu-ray disc, click disc name to load them.

Step 2. Choose lossless format.

Click "Format" list and select "Multi-track Video>Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.mkv)" as below.

Step 3. Adjust V/A settings.

Click "Settings" to enter Multi-track video profile window; switch to "Video" and find the "Encode" box which is unchecked by default, so if you want a lossless MKV copy, do not touch it. The switch to "Audio", check wanted audio track; so does the "Subtitles".

Step 4. Start backing up Blu-rays to lossless MKV for Plex Media Server

Click the big "Convert" to start the conversion. It takes about 40 mins for my Macbook to backup a Blu-ray disc, but the conversion speed also depends on your computer configuration. My suggestion is not to play or edit videos when it's converting. After conversion, click "Open" or "Open output folder" to quick locate converted files.

Ok now the lossless MKV files are prepared; Add Movies to your hard drive and connect it to Plex Media Server, now you can enjoy ISO files on Plex without quality loss!
