Wondering how to transfer your DVD collection to your computer or another device so you can watch your favorite films anywhere? Now you can quickly rip your DVDs using Movavi Video Converter. Just follow the instructions in this tutorial and you'll be able to rip DVDs to any video format you like: AVI, MOV, MKV, M2TS, and many others!
Why would you need to rip DVDs?
You have too many discs and want to free up space
A big DVD collection requires a lot of space and even more time when you’re searching for the disc with your favorite movie. Now, available computer storage has expanded and you can easily keep the same collection on your PC or Mac. Rip your DVDs to clear up space in the room.
Discs get lost or damaged over the years
DVDs are physical objects, which means that you can put them somewhere and forget about them or even drop and damage them. If you rip these discs and save the resulting files onto your computer, your favorite movies will be safe for a lot longer.
You no longer have a device with a disc drive
DVDs were popular some years ago, but are now becoming a thing of the past. Today’s devices don’t even have drives where you could insert a DVD. It would be better to rip your DVDs for your collection so they’re not lost.
With our handy DVD ripping software, it's a one-click task to convert a DVD to the MP4 file format to watch it on your mobile phone. No need to understand video formats, settings, or technicalities – just run the software, open your DVD, select a ready-made preset and click Convert.
