“I’ve got a couple of BD rips that are stored as BDMV folders on my harddrive. What I’d like to do is remux those folders into mp4 files, without having to touch the video or audio tracks. Only thing I’d like to change is deleting some of the audio tracks I don’t use. Is there any easy way to do this on a Mac?”
The source of BDMV files includes AVCHD folders (BDMV and CERTIFICATE) with .mts/m2ts file extension from HD camcorders, Blu-ray movie with BDMV & CERTIFICATE folder or ripped Blu-ray movie with a BDMV folder structure.
