Where do you watch your movies? In the theater, sure; on your DVD player, most likely. But what about on your computer? Your smartphone? Do you have a portable gaming device like a PSP? An iPad or tablet? Recently it’s more and more common to see people watching movies on the go from portable devices. All of this is made possible by movie ripping—the process of changing the format of a full movie into a smaller-sized video file. So get your DVDs together, and get ready to rip them for any and all of those little screens in your life.

DVDs are not designed to be copied or converted on a personal computer. They are created in professional facilities designed to protect the information stored within from illegal copying and selling. But, with the increasing availability of independent software, your computer can become a powerful DVD ripping tool. Third-party software can help take your DVDs and rip them for any of your mobile or at-home devices.

In this article, I’m going to recommend AmoyShare Total Media Solution.
