How to Convert DVD to MOV on Mac?

Convert DVD to MOV

DVD video is blamed for some restrictions and playing DVD can be a little triky. On the one hand, DVD requires a DVD drive and a MPEG2 decoder; on the other hand, each disc contains one or more region codes, restricting DVD player from playing the disc that doesn't contain its region code. For example, a DVD player in region 1 won't play DVD bought in region 2 or 3. This is especially annoying when you want to play a DVD you bought in another country. Worse still, the hundreds of thousands of DVDs spanning years of collections is really space occupation and cumbersome, which are especially hard to carry along when you are on a flight. This propels the provenance of digitizing DVDs into a format that makes DVDs easy to store and play.

MOV is convinced to be the most suitable format to rip DVD to on Mac as MOV is the default QuickTime format. The video format functions as a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, effects, or text (e.g. for subtitles). MOV is developed by Apple Inc., and is the optimal choice in Apple ecosystem. It can be played on iPad, iPhone, QuickTime player and Apple TV, iTunes, etc and has a smaller capacity, with good image and sound quality. So tons of people are looking for methods to convert DVD to MOV format for playback on iPad, iPod, iPhone, QuickTime player and so forth.

Play MOV on Mac/PCs

Play MOV on Mac/Windows

As is known to us all, MOV is the default format for QuickTime Media Player. If you are willing to play MOV on Mac, just open it with the built-in QuickTime Player for playback.
While, for Windows users, Windows Media Player (WMP) is much more familar. But the WMP doesn't support the MOV file format unless they've updated their computer system to Windows 7. Still, it's not absolute. So here I suggest Windows version QuickTime for MOV files playback on Windows platform.
Or else, some other media players like VLC, 5KPlayer are also available to play MOV files both on Mac and Windows computers.
