As CDs and DVDs are being phased out, media is being converted to a number of digital file formats that are compatible with a wide range of devices, including cellphones and dedicated media players, such as the iPod. While special conversion software is needed to convert the VTS files stored on a DVD into MP4 files, no additional hardware is needed. Because of the way the converter programs are designed, users with a modest amount of technical ability can complete the conversion process successfully.

Click the "Browse" button on the main screen and navigate to the DVD containing the VTS files.
