Best video format for converting DVD to NAS for widely sharing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Summary: The article shows you with an easy workaround for
    copying DVD to NAS for streaming by ripping DVD to NAS friendly video
    format on Mac and Windows



    I recently purchased a NAS to store all my music/photos etc on. I
    can stream stuff to my iPhone/iPad using the NAS software. What I want
    to do is rip all my DVDs (over 400) to my NAS, but I’m not sure which
    format to do it in, to play nice with my Apple TV2, Xbox 360, iPhone,
    iPad etc. I wanna get some advice as to what format to rip in and what
    software to use?



    Learn some tips from online, I got know that to copy dozens of DVD movies to NAS,
    you need to get the content off the DVD disc as a protection-free and
    easily readable element for NAS. In this case, at the first place
    powerful third-party software for backup DVD to NAS is what you need.



    There are many, many DVD ripping tools on the market. I’ve tired a pile of them. Brorsoft DVD Ripper
    is the best one I’ve tried yet. It is capable of ripping DVD to MP4,
    AVI, MKV for NAS streaming with no quality loss; it also enables you to
    copy DVD main movies for backup onto NAS in .vob format. And what I’ve
    learned is that MP4 would be one best target format for it is fully
    compatible with nearly all media devices including iPad, iPhone, PS3,
    Apple TV, etc. If you are running on Mac OS X, turn to  DVD Ripper for Mac. If you haven’t got the software, download it now and let’s start the conversion.



    Ripping and copying DVDs to NAS



    1. Launch the DVD ripping program for NAS devices . Then
    click "Load DVD" to import the DVD files you want to convert. To select
    the subtitles you like, simply click Subtitle and select the one you
    prefer. P.S. Before start the conversion, you can choose to backup DVD mian movies.



    2. Click Format bar and choose your desired format. To store
    hundreds of DVD's on NAS, you can rip DVD to .mp4, or .avi, .mkv, etc
    compressed format. And click Settings bar, you can adjust the level of
    compression to suit the quality you want.



    Tip: If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the
    video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind
    the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution
    which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible
    quality loss, and vice versa.



    3. Press the "Convert" button to start ripping DVD for NAS streaming.



    After the conversion, click Open button to find the output files.
    Make sure the wireless network connection is accessible among the NAS
    and Apple TV, PS3, HD TV or other media players. Then just enjoy the
    high quality DVD movies anywhere anytime.
