Put A DVD On Your Computer

We have all had a DVD or a video file that we would like to store on a hard disk , iPhone or iPad , or make a backup copy ( especially if you have children).

This is not a promotion for piracy as you should not copy what you don’t own.

HandBrake  is a free video transcoder. HandBrake will get the video from a variety of sources, including a DVD, and a DVD image, and grabs audio from sources as well, including MPEG audio tracks. 

You’ll can then output this digital file in a variety of formats, suitable to play on many devices and you can even select individual chapters.

Handbrake  is extremely customisable for it’s output.

    LOVE Handbrake. I ripped all of my DVDs to my iMac years ago. It immediately simplified watching all of my media. I can airplay to my iPad and AppleTV from the computer – with just a press of a button. No more missing or scratched DVDs – no more leaving the discs out after watching them. No more buying DVD cabinets!
