How to Free Convert DVD to HEVC/H.265 MP4 with Best Quality

This is a detailed guide on how to convert DVD to MP4 HEVC/H.265 with HandBrake and WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, and which DVD to HEVC ripper should you choose.

HEVC, short for High Efficiency Video Coding, is the successor to H.264. What makes HEVC superior to H.264 is that it can deliver the same quality with half the size, or higher quality in identical size. With the emergence of more-efficient HEVC (aka. H.265) and its increasingly broadened compatibility, the demend for converting DVD to HEVC/H.265 increases.

For example, when I digitize a DVD of 7.26 GB, I get a 1.24 GB file if I choose H.264 preset, but only 634 MB with equivalent quality if I pick H.265. That saves quite much storage. So HEVC/H.265 is the new welcome format to backup one's DVD collection. Here're two ways to convert DVD to HEVC MP4 easily.
