Outline: Are you looking for the best DVD to Media Player converter and DVD to Media Server Converter? Here we prepared top 5 best DVD Copy Softwares for Media Players/Servers and gave you the comparison chart of DVD ripping and conversion functions.

It is the time to free your DVD movies from their shiny silver prisons so they’ll still be watchable in the player-free future. Have you considered removing the encryption and ripping these DVDs off the disc to extend your viewing options to your iPhone, PS4, WMP and more? If so, you can try to put your DVD rips to media server so that you can watch them on various media players without using the discs and DVD drive.

A media server is a program, such as Plex or JRiver Media Center, that enables you to “broadcast” your videos to media extenders. A media extender, in turn, is just a device, like an Apple TV 4, the Xbox One that lets you view video from your media server on your media players. So once you copy your DVD movie library to digital files, you can store those DVD rips on a media server and stream them on a media player anytime without using disc-based content.

No matter what media server you want to choose to put your DVD, you have to convert DVD to digital file in a more compatible format. Because as far as I know, except VLC and Kodi, I don’t heard of any other media players which can play DVD videos directly. So generally, if you want to play DVD videos on normal media players via media server, you need to rip and copy DVD. The article picks up top 5 DVD copy software in 2017 for media server/player. And you can learn the comparison at the below chart.
