Cloud Media have made available a new addition to their range of media players with the launch of the Popcorn Hour A-500 Pro. Its processor is combined with Mali-400 MP4 graphics and supports HEVC decode. Other features include SD slot and HDMI port (with audio) at up to 3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz with cable to name a few. With this super high resolution, you can watch HD even 4K movies on it. You even can play DVD movies on this Popcorn Hour A-500 Pro. But before this, you should rip DVD to Popcorn Hour A-500 Pro supported format on Mac OS X El Capitan.

From the above chart, we figure out that although Popcorn Hour A-500 Pro support support various video format, it can;t play DVD directly. If you want to play DVD on Popcorn Hour A-500 Pro, you should copy DVD to VOB, MKV, MP4, WMV on Mac OS X El Capitan. This need you to ask help for a DVD Ripper.  Handbrake can do this unless your DVD is copy-protected. Otherwise, you should turn to a Mac Handbrake alternative.
