How to connect and watch DVDs on TV?

Step 1. Run Best DVD Converter and import DVD disc.

I also noticed if you have an ISO file to import, it will recognize the ISO automatically with no need to run virtual driver and mount ISO files firstly. Good design.

Step 2. Choose format.

Click“Format” drop-down list and choose "Common Video >H.264 Video(*.mp4)"; it's the most widely used format which will be supported by your TV.

Step 3. Adjustvideo specs or change aspect ratio (Optional)

If you are not satisfied with default specs, then click "Settings" to enter Profiles Settings windows; here you can customize video frame rate, bitrate,size and other settings freely.

If you want to trim, crop, editaudio/subtitles or adjust aspect ratio, click the pencil-like icon and switchto "Crop" tab. Choose Advanced mode, lock the "Keep Ratio" and you can free change aspect ratio.Usually it will be set to "Original"; it would be ok to playback on TV, or you can change it to 16:9.

Step 4. Start conversion.

Click the big red "Convert" to start converting your DVDs to H.264 MP4.

After the conversion, click "Open output folder" to quick locate converted files; transfer the files to the USB drive then plug the drive in the TV.
