Backup and Store Blu-ray and DVD Disc to Asustor for Streaming

I need a tool which can help me rip my DVD and Blu Ray discs and store them on a Asustor NAS. I have built the media library to make it easier to access my ripped media. By ripping my DVD/Blu Ray movies to MP4, and steaming with PLEX I am able to have easy access to all my movies without having to hunt down and load a particular disc. Any suggestion? 


A: I found Pavtube ByteCopy after doing a Google search of “Blu Ray ripper reviews”. Initial impressions are that ByteCopy is a little slower during the encoding process than other similar software. The resulting MP4 file sizes tend to be bigger as well.
