Q: I have a great number of DVDs and I find that I have used too much room to store them. I decide to convert them to HEVC. Anyone can tell me which software can help? I will appreciate any answers.

In 2020, due to the widespread of smartphone and digital video formats, DVD and DVD player seem to become less and less. Still, there are some people who love and own many DVDs for its high quality. Sometimes, for some reasons, such as saving more room or putting their DVDs on a phone or tablet to play during trips, people need to rip their DVDs to other formats. But many of them do not know how to do. To help them, we have already written tutorials about how to rip DVD to WMV, how to rip DVD to MKV, and so on. This time, it is time to teach how to convert DVD to HEVC/H.265.

Part 1. What is HEVC

HEVC, or H.265, has its full name - High Efficiency Video Coding. It is the newest video compression standard and is also the successor of H.264(AVC). Before HEVC, many people regard H.264 as the best choice when they want to rip DVD to other formats because it keeps a good balance between quality and size. But HEVC/H.265 has better performance.

HEVC/H.265 provides twice the compression efficiency than H.264. It means you only need half of the space to get the same quality when you use HEVC/H.265 instead of H.264. To make it easier to understand, let us see an example. If you rip a DVD of 3.63 GB. You will get 0.62 GB using H.264 and 317 MB with the same quality using HEVC.
