Bring movies and TV shows to your physical media in the modern age by using MacX DVD Ripper Pro to create digital versions that you can watch on all your devices. And get it on sale for the holidays!
At a time when streaming movies and downloading TV shows from online services is pretty normal for most people, many people don’t think about the shows and movies they’ve bought before. Many people will have a pile of DVDs somewhere in the house, sitting untouched for quite some time, taking up valuable shelf space.
Instead of throwing away DVDs, what you can do is convert them to digital versions on your Mac for long-term storage. By making a digital copy, you have a backup copy of the content, just in case your physical DVD is damaged or otherwise unreadable.
In addition to backup work, having a digital copy of a movie or TV show means it can be viewed on more than one device. Once converted to MP4, this video file can be viewed on your Mac, your iPad, or even your iPhone, so you can take your media collection with you on trips away from home.
There’s also the issue of scarcity, because while there are plenty of streaming media services out there, not all the content you’re interested in will be available to watch. If you have rare or more obscure movies and shows that have been ripped from DVD, it will still be just as easy to watch as from, say, Netflix.
Mounting your DVDs on your Mac can also free up physical space occupied by the DVDs themselves. You can clear the shelves of DVDs and put them in storage if you have digital versions available, so you can make your living space more minimalist and less cluttered.
