dvd to apple tv

Apple TV is a digital media receiver developed by Apple that streams digital content from iOS mobile devices, macs, or Microsoft's operating system to high-definition televisions. That's good news for movie lovers who want to feast on video on their high-definition televisions. However, due to licensing issues or other reasons, you can't play DVDs directly on a MAC or Windows PC, let alone a wide-screen TV.

Here I will help you analyze the reasons why we can't directly convert DVD to Apple TV, and provide you an effective way to fix this problem.

Part 1. Why We Can't Directly Rip DVD to Apple TV?

Most of Videos in DVDs are stored in VOB format which is not supported by Apple TV. So we cannot play the DVD files directly on it, and we also need to rip DVD to Apple TV by using some video converters or use Airplay to project the Mac screen to Apple TV. It will be easy for us to stream DVD discs or use Airplay, but you may face another problem. That is, the copyright protection in DVDs, which will disable you to play DVDs on your computer successfully. And your computer cannot read the DVDs during the streaming program.

There are still other data protection techniques commonly used on DVD including CSS Scrambling System, Anti-analog device ripping, Region Coding. As a result, a co-operative DVD ripper has become particularly important.

Part 2. How to Convert DVD to Apple TV with high quality?

In the endless market for DVD Rippers, I found the one that worked best— TunesKit Video Converter. Regarded as one of the best DVD rippers in 2020, TunesKit can effectively rip all the DVDs (encrypted or unencrypted) to more than 250 formats in seconds. What's more, it also supports 68+ output digital devices like Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, Samsung TV, Xbox, etc. It is more than a Video Converter; it can also provide you additional tools like trimming, merging videos, adding watermark/ subtitle/ special effects, and so on. As it is a multi-functional and professional DVD ripper, why not download it and have a try?
