The Xtreamer SideWinder 2 is a Full HD Media Player based on the powerful next generation Realtek (RTD 1185 chipset). It can play nearly any 1080P video file, play DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD with 7.1 bit streaming (HD Audio). For those who want to rip Blu-ray to a more compatible format but keeping 7.1 surround sound, Xtreamer SideWinder 2 is a ideal media player to stream the ripped Blu-ray movies since not all media players can support DTS 7.1 sound.
Actually, not only the media player supporting 7.1 sound is hard to find, but a Blu-ray Ripper with the capability of preserving 7.1 sound while ripping Blu-ray is tough to get. As far as I know, Pavtube ByteCopy can achieve the job. This software can convert Blu-ray to lossless MKV format preserving multi-track subtitle/audio and all chapter markers. Besides lossless MKV, you also can get multi-track MKV/MOV with 7.1 audio for Xtreamer SideWinder 2 and you can choose your wanted subtitle/audio track from settings.(reasons to choose ByteCopy)
