How to Convert DVD Video
We live in a rapidly changing world, and while DVD was a brand new technology just a few years ago, it now seems more and more old-fashioned.

Step 2: Add a DVD You Want to Convert
Insert the disc into your computer’s DVD drive, click Add DVD in the top left corner of the Video Converter window, find the disc on your computer, and click Select Folder.
Step 3: Choose an Output Format
Open the list of available presets by clicking the Convert to line and choose the desired format for converting your DVD video under Video and audio. Movavi Video Converter supports over 180 formats and codecs including AVI, MPEG, MP4, HD video, and more. You can also save your movie in an appropriate format for playing on any mobile device, including iPad, iPod, Android phones and tablets, and many more – just check the Devices category to see the full list.
Once you have selected a preset, the program will estimate the size of the output video file so you can decide if it fits your requirements, or you can choose another format.
Step 4: Convert DVD Video
Check the Destination field and, if necessary, change the folder for the output file by clicking Browse. Then, click the Convert button in the bottom right corner and wait until the video is processed. Once the conversion is complete, the folder with your converted DVD videos will open automatically.
