DVD, also known as Digital Video Disc or, the much less common but correct term Digital Versatile Disc, is an optical disc storage media format, and was invented and developed by Philips, Sony, Toshiba, and Time Warner in 1995. Its main uses are video and data storage. DVDs are of the same dimensions as compact discs (CDs), but are capable of storing almost seven times as much data.
Variations of the term DVD often indicate the way data is stored on the discs: DVD-ROM (read only memory) has data that can only be read and not written; DVD-R and DVD+R (recordable) can record data only once, and then function as a DVD-ROM; DVD-RW (re-writable), DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM (random access memory) can all record and erase data multiple times. The wavelength used by standard DVD lasers is 650 nm; thus, the light has a red color.
However, I found many people want to know how to import AVCHD to QuickTime Mac as below.
Q1: How do I rip video from DVD on Macbook to edit?
I’d like to rip video off of a DVD to edit it but am having trouble figuring it out. I download Mac the Ripper but it seems this program just copies all the data files to be able to burn a new DVD. I’m just interested in the Video and Audio to import into a editing program to edit it down. Can anyone give me some suggestions?
Q2: How do I stream a DVD from my Macbook to my iPad?
I’d like to watch my DVD’s on my iPad without importing/capturing/syncing blah blah blah. Can I put a DVD movie in my DVD player on my Macbook Pro and ‘stream’ it wirelessly on my home network to my iPad? I understand you can do this with the Macbook Air laptops. Come on Apple, I MUST be able to do this?! Right?
For resolving these problems, I search a tool— DVD to Macbook Converter is specially designed for Mac users to rip DVD to the popular video formats such as MP4, MOV, DV, M4V and extract DVD audio to MP3, WAV, M4A, AIFF. Those formats can be playable on various devices such as DVD to Macbook, Macbook Pro, QuickTime, iTunes, iPod, iPhone, Final Cut Express, FCP, Apple TV etc. That is to say, you can enjoy DVD videos in lots of place at any time if you like. I hope it is helpful for us.
