Default How to Convert DVD to Apple TV on Mac Step by Step

sponsored links

If you type "DVD to Apple TV", "Convert DVD to Apple TV" on Google, Yahoo, etc…, you can find a great number of related software applications. However, Windows versions appear to dominate the market. There are only a few Mac versions and Wondershare DVD to Apple TV Converter for Mac is a very good choice. It has an attractive Mac interface and is rather convenient to use. The following three steps are all it takes to convert DVD to Apple TV with this software:

[B]Step1.Import DVD Movies[/B]

Click the Load DVD button, select the folder of your DVD movie, and click OK. If the movie is on your disc drive, you can just select the drive and click OK.

Or click the Load IFO button, open the folder of your DVD movie, and you will find two folders in it: AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. Open the VIDEO_TS folder, select all the IFO files, and then click OK.

After the movie is imported, you can see all the chapters and titles in it, and then you can check the ones you want to convert. If you want to convert the whole movie, you can just keep all the titles or chapters checked.

[B]Step 2: Output Settings[/B]

Before the conversion, there are a few settings you should make:

Select the Apple TV Video format from the Format drop-down list.

Click the Settings button to set encoding settings including video resolution, frame rate, bit rate and video encoder, audio encoding settings including sample rate, channel, bit rate and audio encoder.

Name each title/chapter in the Output Filename field, and select the subtitle and audio track for the titles/chapters.

[B]Note[/B]: You can check the “Merger into one file” option to join all the selected DVD titles/chapters into one file instead of creating a separated file for each title/chapter.

[B]Step 3: Click the Start button[/B] to start the conversion. And now you can just go talk a walk and wait till the conversion is completed. After that, you can just transfer the created files to your Apple TV.

Tip 1: Trim Movie

If you just want to convert a clip from your DVD movie, you can click the Trim icon to capture a clip. In the Trim window, you can trim the length of the current title/chapter by either dragging the Start Time and End Time sliders or setting the time parameters in each corresponding field.

Tip 2: Crop Video

If you DVD video has black sides, you can use this Crop function to remove them. Click the Crop icon to open the Crop window, and set the crop area by dragging the crop frame or setting the four crop parameters (Top, Bottom, Left and Right).

Tip 3: Movie Effect

If you are not content with the original effect, you can click the Effect icon to set the video brightness, contrast, saturation, and audio volume. You can also choose to apply a special effect to your movie video from effects including Gray, Emboss and Negative.
