How to convert DVD to video on Mac

If you have a video DVD that you want to back up for safekeeping and your personal collection, you must convert the films to a globally recognizable format. This approach is also required when you want to watch the movies on a player that doesn’t support DVDs, and you want to convert them to a more compatible extension. In either case, you need an efficient converter, and Wondershare UniConverter is the best among all. The following process explains how to convert a DVD video with Wondershare UniConverter on your Mac computer.

Step 1 Import videos on DVD.

Insert the DVD in the DVD drive, launch Wondershare UniConverter on your Mac PC, make sure that the Video Converter category is selected from the list in the left pane, click the drop-down button available next to the Load DVD icon from the upper-left section of the right window, and click the DVD you inserted in the drive.
