Why convert DVD movies to video?

But why would anyone in this day and age want to convert DVD movies to video? Well, there are plenty of reasons for that so here are just a few scenarios you may find familiar, like issues with playing certain DVD movies due to region code restriction.

Once the content of the DVD is ripped, it’s real easy to watch the video on your smartphone, tablet, Mac or TV—all without a physical DVD player and even if the DVD is damaged. The whole experience is simply way better than DVDs in terms of video skimming and browsing.

MacX DVD Ripper Pro can also help you back up any DVD content to an ISO image and DVD folder on your computer, without any quality loss. Or you can back up ripped DVDs as you would any other files with TimeMachine or your favorite backup software.

At any rate, having copies of your DVDs can save you the headache down the road if you lose some DVDs. And don’t forget that those plasticky spinning discs are prone to physical damage and scratches. That said, it’d be wise to back up your DVD movie collection for peace of mind.

Finally, click Run and fix yourself some coffee while your DVD is being ripped. The whole process should be done in under five minutes unless you’ve selected the High Quality Engine option that improves the output video quality but takes a little more time to finish.

To copy a DVD to your Mac with original quality, choose DVD Backup from the list of video presets. Doing so will present you with four options that also let you create an ISO image or MKV. Doing so will strip the video, audio, subtitles, bonus materials and so on from the DVD and combine them into a digital format without re-encoding.
