Frequently asked questions
▶️ Can I legally rip a DVD I own?
The answer depends on where you live and what you plan to do with the ripped copy. Generally speaking, all DVDs are protected by copyright in the US, so you can’t legally copy them without permission.
However, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), there is an exception for “fair use.” If you use the ripped DVD for personal use, such as making a backup of the disk so you can watch it on your computer or mobile device, then it is usually okay, as long as you don’t break any other copyright laws.
▶️ What is the best way to digitize your DVD collection?
The best way to digitize your DVD collection is using a DVD ripper. There are many different options out there for both paid and free versions of the software, so you can pick the one that best fits your needs. Our top recommendation is Movavi Video Converter, which has a great selection of features and an intuitive user interface.
