Although you can watch DVDs on a wide range of devices, sometimes it is far more convenient to deal with video files instead. As you may realize however, converting DVDs into video files is a bit more involved than just copying the track from your DVD – and in most cases you’d want to switch it to MP4 or some other widely-compatible format.

To do that you’ll want to use a converter, but you probably don’t want to have to deal with one that is overly technical in nature. That is what makes Movavi Video Converter so attractive, as it will allow you to rip DVD to MP4 or any other format without any difficulty whatsoever.

If you want to convert a DVD right now, just insert it into your DVD drive then launch Movavi Video Converter. To add the DVD, click on the ‘Add Media’ button then select ‘Add DVD’ and click ‘Open DVD’ – then find the ‘VIDEO_TS’ folder on your DVD and select it.

Once you’ve selected a DVD and added it to Movavi Video Converter, you can proceed to choose a format. Under the ‘Video’ tab in the bottom part of the interface you’ll find several presets for MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV and a variety of other formats. Alternatively you could choose a preset under ‘Devices’ to automatically optimize the video format and settings for a particular device or platform.

Before you convert your DVD, you may want to check the folder under the ‘Save to’ field or alter it if necessary. After that you can click ‘Convert’ when you’re ready for Movavi Video Converter to start converting your DVD into the format that you selected.

It is worth noting that Movavi Video Converter has several editing features that may be useful if you want to tweak or improve the videos that you’re converting. In particular its tools will allow you to trim out unnecessary footage, extract highlight clips, enhance the video quality, fix common issues, crop or rotate the frame, or add captions to your videos.

If you wish you could use Movavi Video Converter to convert images and audio files, compress videos, create animated GIFs out of video clips, grab screenshots, or extract audio tracks from videos. Suffice to say there are a lot of features that are at your disposal, and it is up to you to decide which ones you feel would help.

For now however why not start by converting a DVD into a video file and maybe editing it a little along the way too. Once you see how easy it is to convert and edit DVDs with Movavi Video Converter, you can take your time and experiment with the other features to see how user-friendly they are as well.
