Guide: How to Convert and Compress Blu-ray videos to Vimeo
Step 1: Import Blu-ray movies to the best Blu-ray Ripper
Load your disc to the Blu-ray drive room, and launch the Blu-ray Ripper; click the disc button to import your Blu-ray movies to the program.
Click the main file of your Blu-ray to select the subtitles for Blu-ray movies in the "Subtitles" option.
Step 2. Specify output format
To create the best-quality video with the smallest file size, use the H.264 video encoder. As has been stated above, Vimeo supports MP4, etc video files. So you can just select "Common Video" > "H.264 Video(*.mp4)" as the output video format.
H.264 codec is an open source codec, so you should find that it's supported by most editing and compression programs. Then, you can go to the "Settings" to set the parameters for your movie. You'll need to limit the bit rate of your video to 2,000-5,000 kbps for SD, and 5,000-10,000 kbps for 720p HD video. Limiting the bit rate means limiting the amount of information that's transmitted every second your video is playing. Scaling back your bit rate to Vimeo's specifications will ensure smooth playback for your audience. Vimeo supports constant frame rates of 24, 25, or 30 (or 29.97) frames per second. If your video was shot at a higher frame, just divide that frame rate by two and compress accordingly.
The audio for your project should use the AAC-LC audio codec, and the data rate should be limited to 320 kbps. The sample rate for your audio should be 48 kHz – if your project's audio is less than 48 kHz, which is probable, you can leave your audio at its current sample rate.
