dvd to m4v

Hi! My mom is really obsessed with DVDs and owns a large number of them. I want to watch some of them using my Apple TV since I do not have a DVD player. I know that Apple TV supports the M4V not DVD. Are there any methods that can convert those DVD to M4V easily? Any answer will be appreciated.

DVDs are still loved by many people for many of them can bring people great view experience. And some people take collecting DVD as a hobby. But it has a fatal shortcoming – DVD can only be played on DVD players or computers with DVD drive. But most people in 2020 prefer to watch movies or videos on tablets or phones especially iPhone, iPad, and other iOS products due to convenience. Thus, some people would like to transfer and play their DVD on these iOS products. However, they found they cannot play DVD on these devices directly, since Apple products do not support DVD. M4V is a common format accessible for many iOS devices. For this reason, many people decide to convert DVD to M4V.

Part 1. What is M4V

Before we tell you how to rip DVD to M4V. Let's have a brief introduction to M4V. M4V is a kind of format that is very similar to MP4. Both M4V and MP4 are based on the MPEG-4 video container format. The difference between them is that M4V videos are optionally encrypted and protected by DRM. That is because M4V is produced by Apple used in the protection of iTunes videos. But you do not need to worry about this DRM problem. You only should know if other software output videos in M4V format, they are not with DRM.
