There’s no denying that DVDs are outstanding technology that are widely understood and owned by most movie lovers. But, times are changing. Nowadays it’s not uncommon for die-hard film enthusiasts to enjoy the majority of their movies on their computers via Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, YouTube, or other video streaming sites, not to mention downloaded video files. So, if you’re thinking of turning your DVDs into MP4s, you have found the right article!

It can be challenging to accomplish this task the first time you try it. Computers aren’t equipped with DVD converting software. Try Copy/Pasting a DVD onto your hard drive, and you won’t have much luck. DVDs have built-in copyright protection that makes it impossible to just copy as you would other media files. But, there are tools online that can help.

If you download a video ripping tool, turning a DVD into an MP4 can be simple. Available tools range from highly professional solutions (allowing you total control of your rip), to the one-click conversion with simple or no customization. An option that can provide pro-tools while also being easy to use is AmoyShare Total Media Solution. All you need to get started is your computer with a DVD writer, the DVD you want to rip to MP4, and the downloaded version of AmoyShare Total Media Solution. There’s no risk if you’re using it for the first time, as you can enjoy the free trial!
