Follow step by step tutorial to copy and convert Blu-ray and DVD movie files to Synology Ds215j readable format for accessing on any device from anywhere.
With Synology Ds215j, you can share and watch files from NAS on multiple computers, TV, iPad, iPhone, Android phone, or other devices. I recently purchased one to store all music/photos/movies etc on and now what I want to do is rip all my Blu-ray and DVDs to my 6TB storage Ds215j for storage and displaying on TV via network without need for stream conversion, but I’m not sure how to do it in, to play nice with my TV and even get them accessible from any device from anywhere. (More info: Can Synology NAS transcode videos for my device?)
By searching for Blu-ray/DVD ripper on Google and reading some Internet Reviews, I find Pavtube BDMagic is the the best one I’ve tried yet which can get the content off the Blu-ray/DVD disc as a protection-free and most readable format for Synology Ds215j. Besides, it also can help you to convert Blu-ray, DVD to almost any other common video format such as VOB, FLV, WMV, AVI, MKV or backup the BD, DVD keeping the whole movie structure as you need. Mac version is here. Now just download it and follow the tutorial below to rip and copy Blu-rays and DVDs to Synology Ds215j.
