Remuxing Movie Blu-ray discs with BatchGuy

In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to remux movie Blu-ray discs with BatchGuy


  • Windows 7, 8, 10
  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5+
  • mkvmerge
  • eac3to
  • Ripped Blu-ray discs

Tips Before Starting

  • Make sure you understand the audio and subtitle streams inside of the Blu-ray ie Commentary, SDH, Force Captions etc etc

BatchGuy Tips

  • All BatchGuy Grids can be sorted by double-clicking the header row
  • The (.batchGuyEac3toSettings) file sits at the heart of BatchGuy, so ensure that you save this file after entering information on each screen


  1. Open up BatchGuy and choose Settings. Ensure that all of the exe paths have been specified, choose a Remux Naming Convention Template, set your default BluRay Title Info audio input/output mappings, and defaults for audio and subtitle language and mkvemerge.

BatchGuy Settings Screen
  1. Next, on the main menu, choose Create eac3to Batch File

  2. On the Create eac3to Batch File, choose the location where you would like to save your eac3to batch file

  3. Choose whether you want BatchGuy to extract the files in a single directory or in a directory per playlist (for this tutorial, directory per playlist has been chosen)

  4. Drag and Drop your Blu-ray discs onto the first grid and select the discs you would like to extract. In this demo, we will be remuxing 2 movies

  5. Check the Extract for Remux checkbox and check Is this Remux for a Movie checkbox

  6. Enter in the Movie Name and all the other relevant informaton based upon the Remux Naming Convention Template you chose on the BatchGuy Settings Screen, the mkvemerge batch file location and the mkvmerge output directory

  7. On the Disc summary grid, select the summaries (playlists) you would like to extract

  8. Double-click each summary item (movie) on the Disc summary grid to open up the Blu-ray Title Info Screen

  9. On the Blu-ray Title Info Screen, enter in the movie number (the only significance of this field is what order the movies will be processed)

  10. Choose the video, audio, subtitles, chapters (at least 1 of these must be chosen)

  11. Enter the MKVToolNix Track Name, Language, Default Track Flag and Forced Track Flag on the right of the screen for each playlist(BatchGuy will attempt to set the language automatically based upon the eac3to information. If you chose not to enable audio and subtitle language defaults, the English audio default track flag will be defaulted to "yes" and all other audio and subtitles will be defaulted to "no" and the forced track flag will be set to "no")

  12. Next, if you need to add external subtitles, press the Add External Subtitle Button and choose the external subtitle language and spcify the location of the subtitle file and press save. Once you have done this, press the update button on the bottom right of the BluRay Title Info Screen.
