Some video fans might want to play DVD movies on their QuickTime Player. However, they need to convert DVDs to QuickTime video format first. Before discussing how to convert DVD to QuickTime, we'd like to introduce what QuickTime is since some users might not know it well.
QuickTime is a cross-platform multimedia architecture developed by Apple Inc., including QuickTime Player, QuickTime Pro, QuickTime Streaming Server and QuickTime Broadcaster. Available for Windows and Mac OS, it is used to handle digital video, audio, animation, text, and image formats.
You can import video files like MOV, QT, MPEG-4, H.264, 3GP, MP3, AA, etc to QuickTime Player. And among these video formats, MOV is the most commonly used one.
As mentioned above, QuickTime Player can't play DVD formatted files. Commercial DVDs are encrypted and only special DVD player software can open and display them. It's a pity that even your own (not encrypted) DVDs couldn't be played by QuickTime Player, either. As a QuickTime user, it's reasonable to watch your own DVD movies (you bought or made by yourself) with QuickTime Player.
So what is the best method to transfer movies on a DVD to QuickTime movies, like MOV? You need a professional DVD to QuickTime video converter.
