Hello, have you ever encountered the dilemma that you want to rip a DVD to common video format with high-quality output? The image quality is often important to get an awesome movie-watching experience. But it's not so easy to get original quality after ripping DVD to usual formats. Luckily, there is a new video codec – H.265, which will maintain the high visual quality but in a half file size compared to H.264 codec.


Converting DVD to H.265 MP4 video can compress DVD into smaller size while keeping the same video quality. Then you can enjoy the DVD movies on Android, iPhone, iPad or Smart TV without a DVD player. That sounds great, right? If you would like to do that, all you need to do is getting a DVD to H.265 converter. Don't worry, we will give the most detailed solution to you here.

Part 1. A Brief Introduction of H.265

You may know about H.264/MPEG-4 but may not know about this H.265/HEVC. So, we will introduce this H.265 codec briefly. According to Wikipedia, H.265, also known as High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is the latest generation video compression standard. HEVC's main advantage over H.264 is that it offers roughly double the compression ratio for the same quality.


The H.265/HEVC also can support 4K and 8K Ultra High Definition video. And many companies have already used the HEVC for streaming 4K content like Samsung, Netflix, Amazon, M-Go, etc. Additionally, the leading television manufacturer like Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic, and Toshiba has the Smart TVs with HEVC support, which has the ability to stream 4K content.
