How to Convert DVD on a Mac

If you are a Windows user, please refer to the tutorial on using Movavi Video Converter for Windows.

The DVD era is coming to an end, thanks to the popularity of Blu-ray discs, mobile devices, online video streaming, lightweight flash drives, and memory cards. However, DVD has been around for a long time and many people have stockpiles of movies and home videos stored on DVDs that are now collecting dust on the shelves or stored away in a back room.

The optimum way to return your DVD-based movies to life is to rip them on your Mac and then transfer the video to your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Movavi offers a powerful and easy-to-use DVD converter for Mac that enables you to process a DVD* into a video file in just a few simple steps. Follow the instructions below, download and install the DVD ripping software on your Mac OS computer, and start digitizing your DVD collection.

This guide is for the previous version of Movavi Video Converter. The information will be updated in the near future. You can download the latest version of the app here.

Step 1: Install Movavi Video Converter for Mac

Open the installation file and follow the guidelines that appear in the pop-up window.

Step 2: Add Your DVD to the Program

Open the program, insert the disc into the drive, click Add DVD, and select the DVD you want to convert.

Step 3: Choose the Format

Open the Convert to list and locate the target format for your DVD video. Can’t find the right one? Click Video and audio to see all available output options. Want to save video to watch on your mobile device? Move to the Devices section to explore the available ready-made presets for various phones, tablets, and players, including iPad, iPod, and iPhone.

Step 4: Rip Your DVD

Before starting the conversion, check the Destination field to make sure the program will save your video in the right place. To change the target folder, simply click the Browse button and locate a different one.

If you’re converting your video to any iTunes-compatible media format, or for playing on an Apple device, check the Add to iTunes option; after the conversion is complete, the output files will be automatically added to your media library.

Now, to convert the DVD to MP4 (or any other format of your choosing) on your Mac, just click the Convert button and wait until the encoding is complete.

With Movavi Video Converter you can convert DVDs on your Mac and save them in a wide variety of formats – AVI, MP4, FLV, MOV, MPEG-1,2, 3GP, and more – to create web-compatible and mobile-friendly versions of your DVD videos. You can even do a reverse operation – convert videos to the DVD-compatible VOB format on your Mac – just as easily.
