This guide provides a simple way to complete lossless backup Blu-ray Disc to lossless mkv format keeping multiple audio tracks, subtitle streams and chapter markers on Mac(Mavericks included).
My problems are I can’t seem to create a mkv of the full blu ray (BD) with all the sound tracks. Each time I do it I only get one audio sound track. One time Japanese. I would like to choose English French and Spanish. Sound tracks and subtitles. I also see a problem when down converting the BD from HD to SD. Again I can’t seem to control the audio sound tracks that get copied. Is there a way to go from blu ray direct to SD MKV multi track?

Summary: Have some MKV videos and want to play them on your Mac? Here offers you two possible ways to help you to watch MKV movies on Mac.
“How to play an MKV file on Mac? I have some videos which are in MKV format. But they cannot be played on my QuickTime Player. Is there any solution to help me play MKV on Mac?”
MKV file is a free, open source container format developed by Matroska. It can hold different types and unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks in one file. But the frustration is both QuickTime Player and iTunes have no native support for MKV files? Don’t worry!
Today I will show you 2 solutions to play MKV on Mac.
Solution One: Play MKV with a powerful MKV player for Mac
Even though QuickTime and iTunes cannot recognize MKV videos on Mac, there are still some other media players could do that. The most famous are VLC and MPlayer OSX. Both of them are excellent and free multimedia players for Mac users. Apart from MKV, they can deal with many of the video formats unknown to QuickTime.
Solution Two: Convert MKV in Mac OS X
If you don’t want to install too many players on your Mac and want to watch MKV videos with iTunes or QuickTime player, an quick workaround is to convert the MKV files to common formats (like AVI, MOV, MPEG, MP4, etc) to fit media player with Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac from Pavtube. If you are Windows users, you can try Video Converter Ultimate.
Overall, this program works successfully in MKV to MOV conversion on Mac even you have a bunch of large MKV files. I have tried it to encode MKV to MOV, it turns out playing any kinds of MKV files smoothly and at original quality. It’s the best software application for Mac MKV video playback. What’s more, this all-in-one converter also supports many of other video formats like MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, etc.
How to convert MKV Videos for playing on Mac
Step 1. Run the Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac, drag and drop source video to the program.
Step 2. Click on “Format” bar, and Choose compatible format for your media player on Mac.
Choose the QuickTime/iTunes supported formats in the “Format” dropdown list. You can go to “Common Video” option to find what you like. I think “MOV - QuickTime(*.mov)” or “H.264 Video(*.mp4) format is better for your Mac system.
Tips: For some advances users, you can go to adjust video and audio parameters like bitrate, resolution, channels, etc. Click “Settings” button you can go to check and change them as you like.
Step 3. Press on “Convert” to start encoding MKV to MOV/MP4 format.
Step 4. When conversion completes, press on “Open” to locate converted videos.
Drag and drop these movies to QuickTime/iTunes for convenient playback on media player or Apple devices. Then MKV will be available in your Mac (Mavericks) for playing, sharing and even editing easily.

House of Cards Series Reviews:
“Deliciously dark undertow.” TV Guide
“It’s a heavyweight new contender in the drama category, just as Netflix now is as a content provider.” The Hollywood Reporter
“Deeply cynical about human beings as well as politics and almost gleeful in its portrayal of limitless ambition, House of Cards is a wonderfully sour take on power and corruption.” Denver Post
“It’s beautifully filmed in and around Washington, D.C., it’s well-acted, and it’s cleverly written by Beau Willimon.” Denver Post
“Season two does a better job of embracing the absurdity of its dark universe, where only characters with no moral compass can ever come out on top. It is our collective paranoid concept of Washington politics, in all of its depraved glory.” Under the Radar
2. Endeavour Season 1
Endeavour is a British detective drama TV show available on DVD, the hugely successful and gripping prequel to the classic Inspector Morse series.
Contains five new mysteries that promise to shape the young Endeavour Morse, whose early days as a detective constable with the Oxford City Police see him risk everything to solve mysteries and secure justice. Despite encouragement by mentor DI Fred Thursday, the novice detectives rebellious attitude means he has a lot to prove before he’s trusted to run his own murder enquiry. Written by Russell Lewis, Endeavour proudly harnesses the great traditions of Inspector Morse – the devious crimes, intricate plotting and filmic production values – but promises to take this enduring franchise back into the turbulent, transformative 1960s, and unexplored realms of Oxford life.
Endeavour TV Series Reviews
“If you love English mysteries, and love the old Inspector Morse, you will love young inspector Morse more.” New York Post
“All good stuff, plus a brief but powerful moment at the end that will leave longtime “Morse” fans in an agony of nostalgia” Wall Street Journal
“It is a suitably complicated and pictorially engaging work of period suburban mystery, with a large cast of characters” Los Angeles Times
“Endeavour is wonderfully entertaining on its own, but what puts it over the top is its loving respect for John Thaw.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Endeavour is most interesting for the light it sheds on the character development of young Morse.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Veep TV Series Reviews
“The show is smart–smarter than most on network television–and it has life.” Sioux City Journal
“HBO’s Veep is the sharpest Beltway satire the medium has ever seen, mostly because it focuses not on the power wielded by politicians, but on their desperate venality” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Everything you fear might be true about how our government works–or doesn’t–becomes hilarious fodder for Veep’s biting satire.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Iannucci and his cast are as deft with a wonky policy joke as they are with good old-fashioned bathroom humor and Louis-Dreyfus shines, throwing herself, as she so often did on “Seinfeld” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” physically into the role.” Boston Globe

Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, desperately needs Will on his team to break the tough cases, so he enlists Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to ensure Will’s mental well-being. Unbeknownst to Will, Hannibal also has a particular insight into these horrible crimes and the psychopaths who commit them. As Will hunts down the brutal killers, he is unwittingly sitting across from the most gifted killer of them all. From the imaginative mind of Bryan Fuller (Heroes, Pushing Daisies), and under the artful direction of David Slade (Twilight: Eclipse, 30 Days of Night), Hannibal is a thrilling new series – a story of masterful manipulation that will shock, amaze and leave you hungry for more.

“Deliciously disturbing, Hannibal is bound to leave viewers hungry for more.” Chicago Sun-Times
“[This] prequel to The Silence of the Lambs manages to be engaging and haunting without being formulaic.”Hollywood Reporter
“Hannibal is the most beautiful series on network TV, alarmingly so.” Vulture
“Hannibal, however, aspires to be something better than the average network crime procedural, and it shows.”Washington Post
“The show may be titled Hannibal, which for commercial branding purposes makes complete sense, but this is Will’s story. And an absorbing, psychologically rich one it is, too – immeasurably smarter than The Following, more haunting than Bates Motel.” TV Guide

Description: Best Tivo to ATV solutions on Mac, this guide show you how to trim out commercials in your EyeTV Tivo recordings, and convert to best M4V file for your Apple TV on Mac.
"I just got EyeTV and recorded some *.tivo recordings when I’m out of town. It works great but I’m wondering how can I remove all the commercials inside? Can I get a pure video file to be streamed to Apple TV at home? If yes, how can I do that?"
Elgato’s EyeTV is Mac OS X software that provides a user interface to the various TV Tuners from Elgato and some licensees. It is bundled with TV Tuner products sold by Elgato and is offered separately as well. Its main function as a PVR is to show the Tuner’s received TV programs on the computer screen. It can show live programs and also offers Time shifting. It can record programs permanently to disk, by pre-programming.
However, the recorded TiVo files usually are not compatible with most media players, TVs we adopt. Thus, if you want to get a pure tivo recording to ATV, it’s advisable to trim out ads firstly, and then convert TiVo files to H.264 M4V format for better preservation or sharing with family and friends.
Solution 1. Comskip
Comskip is a free mpeg commercial detector. It is a windows console application that reads a mpeg file and analyses the content based on a large amount of configurable parameters. After analysis it generates a file in various possible formats containing the location of the commercials inside the mpeg file.
Here is a thorough thread of how to use Comskip to remove commercials in your Tivo recordings, then stream it to ATV via iTunes after it’s done. Although this software is free and open source, you will need to donate $10 via PayPal or more to pay for the Comskip site
Comskip is a console window program. This means it does not have a nice windows user interface. As it’s not completely compatible with your OS, you may need to run Comskip manually which can be confusing for many users.
Solution 2. Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac
It’s not a free software but not overpriced. Comparatively it has a better (simple and straight) interface which allows users trim out commercials freely on their own.
This makes tv viewing a lot more pleasurable and efficient, and is especially helpful controlling advertiser access to children.
