Rip DVD to Personal Cloud Device for Watching on DLNA Players
There are many reasons pushing you to make a digital copy for your DVD collection, such as safer storage, more convenient management and playback,wider compatibility, bookshelf space saving etc. Maybe, you just want to digitize large DVD collection to your personal cloud storage for watching on DLNA-enabled players.
If your whole house is pretty much wi-fi and and your DVD players and many other devices supporting DLNA, digitizing a large bookcase of DVD movies to personal cloud device which can store away to save some space is really a good idea. You can choose to put DVD to WD My Cloud, Seagate Wireless Plus, Synology NAS, etc.
Of course, no matter which you choose, the first thing is to rip DVD to a more compatible format so that your DLNA-enabled players can play DVD movies. Here, I suggest you to use Pavtube BDMagic to release DVD to personal cloud device conversion. It can rip any commercial and region-locked DVD to personal cloud device in MP4, MKV, AVI, H.265,M3U8, etc. The best feature you will like is the “Original” Settings for output that allows you to select output that is the original pixel aspect ratio.

How to rip DVD to personal cloud device for DLNA-enabled players?
Step 1： Add DVD movies to the app
Select “Load from disc” from the “File” menu drop-down list to add DVD movies to the program. Click the drop-down list of Subtitles, then all the subtitles info in the DVD will be shown clearly, so you can select your needed language as your subtitles freely. And the app supports batch conversion so you can add more than one DVD movies at a time to rip.
Step 2: Select output format
Click Format and choose MP4 video from “HD Video”, which can be recognized by tablet/PC/game consoles/portable devices well. Choose HD MP4 from“HD Video”. Then click the Browse button to specify an output folder to save the converted files.
Tip: If you have too large DVD collection and your personal cloud device only has limited space. You can compress the DVD movies for personal cloud device.
Go to “Settings” on the main interface and lower the bitrate. Comparing with “Size” spec, bitrate is the main reason to affect the video size. You can preview the size at the below chart.
Notice: Bitrate also influences video quality. So don’t ignore video quality while pursuing the smaller size.

Finally, hit the “Convert” button at the bottom of the main interface to start the conversion. It will automatically convert DVD movies to personal cloud device for DLNA-enabled on your computer.
After you transferred converted DVD movies to personal cloud device, you can play DVD movies on DLNA-enabled players like Apple TV, iPad, PS4 via DLNA certified NAS.
