How to Rip/Transfer DVD(Video_TS, VOB, ISO, IFO) to QuickTime on Mac

You may come across lots of problems when you import DVD files into QuickTime player. Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Let's find it out here! This tutorial is for anyone who uses Mac and has problems playing their DVD movies in QuickTime.

QuickTime is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc. However, just like many other media players, QuickTime does not support DVD as source media. What if we want to watch our favorite DVD movies in QuickTime on Mac OS? In this page, I will give you some hints to let you play DVD in QuickTime on Mac with ease.

According to the QuickTime supported format list, DVD video format (like VOB, Video_TS, ISO or IFO) is not included. So if you want to play DVD in QuickTime, you will need to convert DVD to QuickTime playable format first. Is there an app which makes it easy to either just to rip DVDs to QuickTime format in an almost Apple-like way? If you're looking for ease of use and don't mind spending $35, I've had success using Brorsoft's DVD Ripper for Mac to rip and convert DVD discs, VIDEO_TS, ISO to a format playable by QuickTime and iTunes. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.

The software works like most other DVD rippers I've used. Pop in your disc, choose a QuickTime output profile (QuickTime MOV, MP4, HD MP4), and click "Convert". Then go get a cup of coffee (conversion takes time). Below are the detailed steps.
