DVD to Plex: How to Rip and Backup DVD Collections to Plex Media Server?

Plex organizes all of your video, music, and photo collections, and gives you instant access to them on all of your devices. With the free Plex Media Server software on your home computer and Plex app for portable devices, you can enjoy all of your personal media on your devices. The questions is how can you rip and backup DVD collections to Plex Media Server? If you have no ideas, just read this tutorial to get some hints.

As you know, most commercial DVD discs are copy-protected by CSS, Region, RCE, Sony ARccOS and PuppetLock. The directly copied Video_TS folder from DVD discs are not compatible with Plex Media Server. To rip and backup DVD collections to Plex, you'll need help from a third party DVD to Plex Media Server converter.

Here, Brorsoft DVD Ripper is highly recommended to remove DVD copy protection as well as rip DVD to Plex compatible H.264 MP4, MKV formats without losing quality. Best of all, it allows you to copy your DVD to hard drive with original structure or main movie only. If you're using a Mac, please turn to Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac, which enables you to convert DVD to Plex Media Server on macOS High Sierra.
