Description: The below article will provide a easy way for you to convert your DVD and Blu-ray discs to digital format for storing on your NAS and playing on HTPC.
Q: If you have lots of DVD and Blu-ray discs in hand, what will you do?
A: I am a CEO of a Not For Profit organization that likes computer gaming and watching movies. I am looking to rip my DVD and Blu-ray Disc to digital format to store on my home NSA and play them on my HTPC.
The aims of conversion
That is one typical customer in my survey of "What's the aim of doing format conversion". According to my survey, I found many people convert their DVD and Blu-ray movies to digital format for two usages:
Storing on home NAS
NAS, with Network Attached Storage in full, is the extender for home sharing. NAS not only operates as a file server, but is specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. NAS is often manufactured as a computer appliance – a specialized computer built from the ground up for storing and serving files – rather than simply a general purpose computer being used for the role.
Playing on HTPC
A home theater PC (HTPC) or media center computer is a convergence device that combines some or all the capabilities of the personal computer with a software application that supports video, photo, audio playback, and sometimes video recording functionality. With HTPC, you could avoid suffering the load and crowed cinema while having the same enjoyment of the fantastic visual effect.
