How to rip/copy Thanksgiving DVD Movies on iPad/Apple TV via Plex

Step 1: Add the DVD movies

Insert your DVD disc to the drive, then launch the DVD and click the "Load from disc" button to select and load the DVD movies you want to store on your Plex. VIDEO_TS folder, ISO and IFO files are also supported. After the DVD movie is loaded, you can preview it on the right viewing window and adjust volume or take snapshots freely.

Step 2: Choose output format 

Choose a compatible format for iPad/Apple TV playing via Plex. Here I recommend you click the format bar and choose "H.264 video (*.m4v)". 

Additional Tips:

As mentioned above, officially, the iPads support MPEG-4 and H.264 with .mov, .m4v, and .mp4 extensions video, meaning that’s the only media recognized over Plex’ Direct Play. If you want to prepare all of your media files (VOB, MKV, AVI, MPG, DVD and Blu-ray) for playback on iPads, you can get Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (an all-in-one video, DVD and Blu-ray solution) to achieve your goal smoothly.

Hit the “Convert” button at the bottom of the main interface to start the conversion. When you the conversion process shows in 100%, you can locate the ripped films in the target folder.
