Are you a movie buff who have large DVD collections? I believe you should have also encountered some annoying things. For instance: it takes too much room to store our DVDs especially when we have a lot of DVD discs. And, the DVD discs may be damaged if we do not store them properly, but some of them cost us a lot. Or someday we suddenly wanna watch a favorite old DVD but have to spend several hours to find it out. So terrible!!! For me, to avoid such troubles again, I found a solution, that is, we can rip or copy DVD to Synology NAS drive, and stream them anytime, from anywhere. Here offers 2 ways to finish this task.
First Way: Seeking help from a top DVD Ripper to rip a DVD to NAS
Hollywood wants you to buy its movies on DVD and Blu-ray, but it also wants to control what you do with them once you get home. As far as we know, almost all DVD movies are encrypted with CSS copy protection. Decryption keys are stored in the normally inaccessible lead-in area of the disc. You'll usually get an error if you try to copy the contents of an encrypted DVD to NAS drive.
However, if you have used a software player to play the movie, it will have authenticated the disc in the drive, allowing you to copy without error, while the encryption keys will not be copied. If you try to play the copied VOB files, the decoder will request the keys from the DVD-ROM drive and you will fail to copy with an error message "Cannot play copy-protected files". What you need to do is processing DVD to digital conversion. That said, you'll need a DVD to NAS ripper utility that can remove the Content Scrambling System (CSS) or similar built-in protections that prevent straight-up copying, and then rip DVD to a mobile-compatible format and then backup the ripped DVD onto NAS.
