How to get a DVD movie onto iTunes

Many people these days own lots of DVDs, but you want them on iTunes for your iPods. You could always buy them from the store (eh), or get digital copies (but the downside is, you’re stuck with a blu-ray disk if you don’t have the player). There’s an easy solution.

1) Download the program Handbrake. It has support for all the Apple products. Click the link here.

2) Once it’s downloaded, load your DVD into your DVD drive.

3) Open the program

4) Select Universal under Apple (choose this if you are doing this for Apple video compatible products such as Apple TV).

5) On the top of the screen, select SOURCE and click on the driver with the DVD in it (usually D:\)

6) Let it process for a bit.

7) There are various options, my favourites are chapters, which let you name your chapters, as on a DVD.

8 ) Click subtitles if you wish, and add them if they’re on the DVD. Not all of them work though (some of my Chinese movies didn’t work). There are some glitches, such as overlapping subtitles which happen from time to time in random places though.

9) Under Destination, click browse, and name your movie file.

10) Once your done, press START and wait. An estimated time is at the bottom.
