I still remember those days when there used to be a DVD/CD shelf in my living room. We got our first DVD player in 1999, since then I have collected around 150 DVDs. Unfortunately I rarely pick any of them now and the shelf is lying somewhere inside the store room. This clearly shows how rapidly technology advances with time. Though I really wish to watch some of my DVD’s but again there’s a setback, now I am more inclined towards the digital media. Due to hectic schedule, I watch most of the movies and TV shows while travelling in a metro and there’s no way I could use those DVDs. Infact carrying DVD itself is tedious task, No? Don’t you think it’ll be more convenient to Convert DVD to MP4 and keep it as a portable solution on Hard drive?
Undoubtedly, It is a great idea to rip all those DVDs on your high storage Hard Drives and watch them whenever you feel like. No more bulky cases and fear of scratches due to mishandling. Thankfully there are number of DVD rippers out there to rip DVD to mp4 and plenty of other formats in just 3 clicks.
