QuickTime Player doesn’t support DVD video formats (such as VOB, Video_TS, ISO, and IFO). In other words, you cannot play a DVD on QuickTime or need to convert the DVD to QuickTime-compatible video formats for playback. But how to understand “You can use QuickTime Player to play media stored on your computer's hard disk, a CD, a DVD, or the Internet”? Well, the media does not mean a DVD inserted into your external option drive (for example, an Apple USB SuperDrive) but refers to digital MP4, MOV, M4V, or WMV video files copied from the disc. Therefore, the way to play DVDs on QuickTime is to convert discs to digital files that QuickTime supports.

Q: What file types does QuickTime accept?
A: QuickTime movie files (MOV), most MPEG-4 files (MP4, M4V, M4A, MP3), MPEG-2, DV Stream, MJPEG, and some audio files like WAV, AIFF, and AAC. Among them, MOV, MP4, and M4V are three types of optimal formats.

Q: Which format should I choose for QuickTime?
A: H.264 encoded MOV is the best format to rip a DVD for free playback on Apple devices with QuickTime Player.

Q: How can I convert a DVD to MOV (with H.264 codec)?
A: Use a professional DVD to digital converter like HandBrake (Mac) or WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro (Windows).
