Play DVD On Mac - The Quickest Solution

If you do a search on Google for the term "Why can't I play DVD on Mac" you will find there are over 1 million Mac users asking this question. While a lot of them have found that their machine will not play anymore due to negligence, a lot of Mac users do not understand that Mac computers have never been real comfortable with DVD.

Apparently, according to Mac, "Mac Video DVDs need to be in the UDF disk format if you want them to play in DVD players. A DVD burned from the finder will be in Mac OS Extended format". Quick show of hands, how many of you really understand what that means? I have been using a Mac for years, and I had to read that statement about a dozen times before I understood what they were saying, then I still had to explore my computer software to figure out how to make it work.

The problem is, I only burn a DVD about once or twice a month. That means I forgot how to do it every single time until I finally just gave up trying. Then I found a simple solution. It was so obvious, I didn't know why I had never looked before.

The solution I am referring to is a Mac DVD Ripper. This amazing software will allow you to convert any DVD into the proper format so that it can be viewed on a Mac, as well as converting any audio or video files you create on your Mac to be used and enjoyed on any other system, such as Windows, or a standard DVD player.

By using this software, I was able to rip DVD to any popular video format I chose. .FLV, .MP4, .MOV, and more. I was also able to rip DVD to a wide assortment of audio formats including .MP3, .WAV, .APE, and so on.

As any Mac user can attest to, it is very difficult to play AVI on Mac. However, with a Mac DVD Ripper, this is no longer an issue. .AVI videos convert and play with no problems whatsoever. Gone are the days of struggling to play a simple DVD on Mac.

The only real challenge I have seen with this software is the incredible amount of software on the market that claims to allow a consumer to rip DVD on Mac OS X systems, that is so techy as to make it as unusable as the software that comes pre-loaded on Mac. I initially purchased 4 different types of software before I finally found one that was simple and had all the functions I was looking for.

So, if you are looking for a way to play DVD on Mac, I encourage you to do your homework, and keep looking for the right solution for your needs. The answer is out there, and can be yours for less than $30.00. Good luck in your search.
