How to Rip Movie DVDs to MOV Format on Mac Computer



Have some awesome DVDs but don't want to carry all of them together during a family trip? Or you would like to convert your favorite DVD movies to your Mac?in cases like these, you can rip your DVDs to MOV files on Mac with a Mac DVD to MOV ripper.



What is MOV format?


MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files, which was created by Apple Computer to work with multimedia files often used for saving movies and other video files, using a proprietary compression algorithm developed by Apple Computer, compatible with both Macintosh and Windows platforms. The format specifies a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, effects, or text (e.g. for subtitles). Each track either contains a digitally-encoded media stream (using a specific format) or a data reference to the media stream located in another file. The advantage of MOV files is the ability to contain abstract data references for the media data. That means that they can be easily edited - no need to rewrite all media data after editing.


But QuickTime movies could not be played directly on DVD player, it should be converted DVD to MOV files first and What's more, the new generation of digital cameras not only takes still photos with amazing clarity, but also records high-quality video in QuickTime format (MOV). So converting DVD to MOV files is not avoidable. Maybe you found some free conversion software, but pavtube customer feedback shows that they are many inadequacies, such some of DVD discs can not to be imported, and they are not taking advantage of multi-MOV, this means that they does not support multi-track output.
