How to Rip DVD to iTunes for playback on Apple device?
Step 1: Import the source video
Download, install and launch the DVD to iTunes Converter on your Mac. Click "Load IFO/ISO" or “load from disc” to import DVD on your computer. When the video is loaded, you can select the subtitle and audio track as you like.
Step 2: Custom output format
Click format bar to find "Common Video" > "H.264 Video(*.mp4)" to get the optimized output file for DVD to iTunes conversion.
Tip: If you like, you can change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate by “Setting”. You must know that the higher bitrate is, the bigger size and the lower visible quality loss the output file will get. If you want to keep 1080p Full HD resolution, set the video size as 1080*1920.
Step 3: Start ripping DVD to iTunes
When everything is OK, press the big red "Convert" button to start DVD to iTunes MP4 conversion on Mac. After the conversion, locate the output files by clicking the “Open” button and then you can import them into iTunes and if necessary, sync with your Apple device for free playback, anywhere and anytime you want.
Supplement: To add local videos to iTunes, you just need to open iTunes and go to File > Add to Library or directly drag and drop the converted video to iTunes. And then find the video in the Movies category.
Now you are able to enjoy your DVD videos in iTunes and even transfer it to idevices like iPhone, iPad, iPod etc. for killing time on the go. In addition, the conversion process can be operated on Windows by DVD to iTunes Windows Version.
