How to convert DVD to MP4?


MP4 is one of the most popular container formats for both audio and video streams. It is recognized by quite a number of devices, including iPod, iPhone, Sony PSP, and many others. It is also a good choice for backing up DVD videos, as the video codecs used for compressing video data (for example, H.264) allow reducing size of the movie without visible quality losses.
