Different Modes for Ripping a DVD
The high-quality engine at the core of MacX DVD Ripper Pro has got 2 modes for backup and conversion of DVDs.
In the backup mode, it robotically activates its demuxing/remuxing kernel to copy DVD content. This includes copying video/audio content or subtitles from physical devices without re-encoding. It is indeed essential to maintain the original quality of the DVD file.

How to copy DVD to Mac | Quick tutorial
Firstly, whether you’re doing DVD backup or conversion, never forget to tick the “the High Quality Engine box”.
Copying DVD to external hard drive or USB
You need to backup the title in .mpg or .mkv format. By this, you can get 100% original DVD quality and 5.1 frame sound effect.
Cloning DVD for burn
Just copy DVD to ISO image and there would be no quality loss at all. The DVD structure remains intact and hence is best for burning.
Backing up DVD to Mac’s hard drive
For this, you have to “Rip DVD to MP4 / MOV”. Some amount of data compression is done, but the high-quality engine ensures almost nil quality loss.
Saving DVD on Mac with smaller size but higher quality
You need to select “Rip DVD to HEVC”. HEVC being the new video compression standard ensures the same level of image quality.
Tips for Pro users
- In order to get the highest quality video after ripping a DVD, remember to move the slider bar on the HQ.
- Also, adjust the various parameters as per your needs.
For e.g. to store DVD on smartphones:-
Codec: H.264 | Format: MP4 | Resolution: Keep it unchanged | Frame rate: keep it unchanged | Bitrate: 1000k-1400k
Note: there is no need to upscale the DVD resolution to higher 720p/1080p/4k 2160p video. The quality won’t enhance but the file size will be enlarged consequently. Higher bitrate means better image quality. But too much bitrate also leads to file size increase and more storage space to save the movie.
