Rip DVD to Nas

Guide on how to backup DVDs to NAS drive to watch movies from a home cinema setup

Q - "I was looking to get a decent NAS and possibly moving the PLEX to that. I was looking at the Synology or the QNAP. Is there a big difference between those? Is there a comparable Qnap model? Is there a way to backup my DVD movies to NAS? I plan to rip a full collection of DVDs to a NAS, and trying to determine the size needed for my collection."

A - Whether it is possible to transfer DVD to NAS, actually, is not a question that you have to take a wild guess. The answer is definitely YES. More than that, there is a fast way to rip DVD to NAS, whether you want to backup DVD movies to NAS Synology or QNAP, or to stream movies, music or pictures easily. And that best solution is DVD ripper for NAS.

The first to come to most people's mind is HandBrake, which is free and professional enough, even though quite difficult for average users. However, almost all DVDs you are holding now are copy protected ones, which can't be taken care of by freewares, even HandBrake. Then, which is the best DVD to NAS ripper for all kinds of DVDs?

What is NAS?

Network-attached storage, aka NAS, is a file-level computer data storage server, containing one or more hard disk drives, connected to a computer network, providing data access to a group of clients.

Pros of NAS media server:
1. It is easily accessible by a heterogeneous group of clients, such as all family members at home or company staffs at the same time.
2. It stores huge amount of data, better useful than computer hard drive or external hard drives.
3. Most error things happening to hard drives are not likely to be found here, such as file missing, file corruption, etc.

Best Video Format for Ripping DVD to NAS

MP4, being the top answer in most DVD backup and video re-encoding cases, is what we suggest this time, especially MP4/H.264. Technically speaking, MP4 is a media container, storing videos encoded in MPEG-4 and H.264. Out of the best video compressing algorithm, H.264 reaches the best balance between file size and quality. That's why even you don't care about space any more, which is exactly the selling point of NAS, we still take MP4 as the best one. If you do need a zero-quality-loss output file, rip DVD to ISO/VOB/MPEG 2 for NAS streaming.
