MP4 to DVD or ISO converter

Now that you have a good MP4 you might want to make it into a DVD.

Try this site and use DVD Flick.

  • Add a “title” or MP4 file
  • Change the Project destination folder at the bottom of the screen to write the DVD folders to.

  • Click Create DVD

  • Then either play from the folders (creates one called dvd) or use ImgBurn to create iso or dvd disk.

That’s it!

How to rip a DVD with CSS and other protection

Ever rented a DVD which no longer plays on your DVD player or changer? A bit annoying. Take a backup!

  • Download the free version of WonderFox DVD Ripper Speedy.
  • Choose the main movie. (In my case I had to choose a couple of tracks as there were two “movies” or episodes.
  • The only setting I changed was we like to see subtitles

Since WonderFox only saved as MPG we need it to be in an MP4 container to play with our Plex server.

  • Import the movie into MovieMaker. I still had my copy from when I upgraded Windows from 7 to 10.

  • I’m just saving using the recommended setting with the Save Movie icon on the right.

 That’s it!
