This article show you the way to rip the movies from your DVD disc to one single MP4 videos so that you can play and watch them on any of your devices or media players anytime and anywhere as you like.


The common way to watch a DVD movie is usually using a DVD player. Have you ever image that rip the DVD movies into a digital format (MP4 is preferred choice) for watching without DVD player?

The benefit to rip DVD to MP4 files:

DVD is easily broken

DVDs are vulnerable to warping, scratching, and breaking when aged, and stored or used improperly. When a disc is damaged, several or hundreds or thousands of sectors will become unreadable. Therefore when you play it, you may encounter problems like “sometimes it plays properly and sometimes it skips or even aborts”, “when DVD is inserted, it doesn’t seem to read or load”, and “DVD playback keeps freezing”.

DVD occupies much space of our room

DVDs are cumbersome to store, thus becoming a headache for those who have collected an enormous number of DVD discs. By converting DVD to MP4 or other digital files can help you save much room space and find target item easily.

Regional lockout causes DVD won’t play error. 

Virtually all commercial DVDs have region codes which only permit the discs to be played on DVD players that have the identical codes. For instance, if you live in America (where DVDs and DVD players have a region code of “1”) and purchase a DVD from British (where region 2 is employed), you probably fail to play it on your player.

MP4 takes up less space than others as keeps high quality.

MP4 features high compression rate and great output quality. Therefore, it delivers smaller file size than other formats when set as the same quality. Sometimes a MKV file at least doubles the size of a MP4.

MP4 is easy to store and manage, and hard to be corrupted.

A digital MP4 copy is much easier to store and manage. You can save it to computer hard drive, external hard drive, flash drive, iPhone, Android, etc. Besides, you can categorize all the MP4 videos ripped from DVDs by genre, by year, etc, and name them according to your own needs. When you need certain file, you can locate it effortlessly from well-organized list or by searching.

MP4 is compatible with almost all electronic devices, including computers from different brands, Apple iOS devices, Android phones and tablets from Samsung, Google, HTC, Microsoft, Sony mobiles, tablets, game consoles, and so on. That is to say, after converting DVD to MP4, you can keep MP4 copies with you and watch them on the train, airplane, bus, etc.
