2 Ways to Convert DVD to HEVC/H.265 MP4: Free HandBrake vs WinX DVD Ripper Platinum

Check how to convert DVD to MP4 HEVC/H.265 with HandBrake and WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, and which way is more suitable for you.

Do you still keep on ripping your DVDs to H.264? There's nothing to criticize H.264, after all it is the most compatible video format which can be managed on any device and program. However, with the emergence of more-efficient HEVC (aka. H.265) and its increasingly broadened compatibility, it's time for you to make a change - converting DVD to HEVC/H.265.

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. Let me show you an 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, right? Do you want to have a try? Here're two ways to empower you to convert DVD to HEVC MP4.

• Method 1. Free Convert DVD to H.265 (x265) MP4 with HandBrake
• Method 2 (★ Recommended). Convert DVD to HEVC/H.265 MP4 with More Powerful, Faster WinX DVD Ripper
• Which DVD to HEVC Converter to Go: HandBrake vs WinX DVD Ripper Platinum

Method 1. Free Convert DVD to H.265 (x265) MP4 with HandBrake

HandBrake can handle any DVDs that do not contain any kind of copy protection, which is clearly written on its official site. So, if you're trying to convert a commercial DVD, you should shelve your idea for HandBrake and try the second solution.

Before executing the steps below, you should download and install HandBrake on your Windows, Mac or Linux based computer. Once done, open HandBrake and follow our instruction (based on HandBrake 1.1.0 for Windows) to convert your DVD collections to HEVC .mp4.

1 Load target DVD.

Insert the DVD you want to convert to HEVC MP4 into optical drive of your computer, and then you should see the disc under Source Selection when you launch HandBrake. Clicking it, you will see HandBrake scanning the inbuilt titles immediately. Once completed, HandBrake will display the disc information in the main screen and choose main title, angle, and chapters automatically for you. Certainly, you can make some changes based on your own needs.

4 Begin ripping DVD to HEVC MP4.

HandBrake will start converting your DVD disc to HEVC-encoded MP4 after you clicking Start Encode button in the top bar. Once done, you can play your H.265 content on iOS 11-powered devices (i.e. iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPad Pro), Android devices running on 5.0 and later (i.e. Samsung Galaxy S9, S8), macOS High Sierra- and Windows 10-powered computer, Roku 4, Xbox One, etc.

Method 2. Convert DVD to HEVC/H.265 MP4 with More Powerful, Faster WinX DVD Ripper Platinum

Why WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is more powerful and faster than HandBrake?

The main reasons are:

1. Apart from home-made unencrypted DVDs, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum can also deal with commercial music/movie/TV show/workout/Japan Adult DVDs with copy protections, like CSS, Region Code, RCE, UOP, Sony ARccOS, Disney X-project DRM and more. Both old and new, well-preserved and damaged discs, are supported.

2. X265 is very CPU heavy to encode and isn't assisted by hardware acceleration, so HandBrake always take quite long time, even hours, to finish DVD to HEVC conversion. However, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is uniquely equipped with Intel QSV and NVIDIA CUDA/NVENC powered level-3 hardware acceleration, speeding up DVD to MP4 HEVC ripping greatly. >> Check why you need hardware acceleration in DVD conversion
