How to Rip and Upload DVD Library to Cloud Storage Device or iCloud

"I want to backup my DVD movies to cloud for playback on my Samsung TV, tablet, so that I don't have to dig out my DVDs."

With the dramatic reduction of DVD players and disc drives in the new digital era, it's time to digitize DVDs to free them from the shiny silver prisons for more flexible playback. And saving DVD digital copies to cloud services is something to make your DVD movies and TV shows available and accessible through Internet on any screens anywhere anytime.

As one of the most popular ways to dispose of old DVDs, uploading DVD to cloud also keeps you from troubles like disc loss, scratch, damage, declutters your room and saves your local storage space.

Nevertheless, you cannot directly upload DVD to cloud service, whether it's Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Amazon Cloud or Apple iCloud. The proper solution is to rip DVD to cloud-friendly format with a DVD ripper and then upload the DVD movie library to cloud for later streaming to Chromecast, TV, Roku, Plex, etc.

1. If you only need to store DVD digitally and put the movie library to the cloud, you don't need to consider about the format matter. Generally, almost all the mainstream video and audio formats are supported by the cloud service. If you are still unsure of the media format, check the table below.

Supported Audio Formats

Google Drive

WebM, .MPEG4, .3GPP, .MOV, .AVI, .MPEGPS, .WMV, .FLV, .ogg

MP3, MPEG, WAV, .ogg, .opus

2. If the quantity of DVD movies to be saved is large, try to choose the output format with comparatively low quality (for small output size), and oppositely, choose the high quality.

3. If you desire to play the converted DVDs on Apple TV, iPad, iPhone Samsung table, PS5, Xbox One and any of other portable device, you can choose directly from the device profile listed in the "Output Profile Category" that envelops 350+ profiles.

4. For general uses, MP4 in "General Profiles" is recommended, as it strikes the best balance between file size and output quality. Generally, a ripped movie is around 1-1.4GB in size, 80% smaller than the original DVD movie, and to the naked eyes, it's highly unlikely to distinguish the difference between the original movie and the re-encoded video, thanks to its unique level-3 hardware acceleration and the high quality engine.

Step 3. Define the output directory.

Optionally, you can browse to choose any location on your computer disk as the destination to save the output files.

Step 4. Ready for DVD to Cloud Storage ripping.

Just click "RUN" button to start ripping the movie DVD to the digital file accepted by your cloud storage device.
