Then, let's begin the conversion process.
Step 1. Launch the DVD to Plex converter and load DVD movies to the program.
Step 2. Choose the MP4/MKV format for Plex Media Server. I always use "MKV HD Video (*.mkv)" or "H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)" under "HD Video" profile.
1. The Forced subtitle which I appreciate is also on the main interface and if you check this function, it could show the forced subtitles you chose in the output video.
2. If your computer have Nvidia CUDA/ATI AMD ready graphics card, you can have GPU encoding and the conversion would be faster.
Step 3. Hit the "Convert" button to start the conversion. It may take some time to finish the conversion, and with this period, I just do some housework to wait it.
When the conversion is over, just click the "Open" icon to locate the output video and then transfer the files to Plex Media Server.
Make sure the wireless network connection is accessible among the Plex Media and HD TV or other media players. Then just enjoy the high quality DVD movies. So easy, right? Go on to have a try now!
