Backup DVD to WDTV-live box for watching on TV via HDMS

This following will introduce a step by step guide on how to convert and play DVD on TV via HDMS using a WDTV-live box. 

I have some DVD movies for Christmas from a friend that are backed up and stored on my NAS-box/external hard disk and I need to rip them for playback on WDTV-live box hooked to tv via HDMS without a DVD player. I like the convenience of making my hundreds of movies accessible from WDTV-live box.


Does this sound good to you? Here's how to do. What's more, it is a piece of cake to play Blu-ray, ISO and iTunes movies to WD TV for watching.

At first, you need a third-party converter to convert DVD to WDTV-live box supported file. Here recommend the Pavtube DVDAid, as a DVD to WDTV-live converter. (Here are more options for you) It could not only rip DVD to mkv Matroska/mp4 format for storage on WDTV-live box with fast ripping speed and excellent output video quality, but also offers you some video editing features like trimming, cropping, rotating, adjusting video effects, etc. to customize your videos. If you are using a Mac, please turn to the equivalent Mac version.
