What’s more, unlike some other programs, this software is able to convert protected DVDs, old DVDs, and even slightly scratched DVDs with fast speed and high-quality output.
Without further ado, let me show you how to use this software to rip DVDs to iTunes video.

Step 3. Click DVD Disc on the main interface and select the DVD you just inserted. After the DVD is loaded, you will see that the Main Movie/Main Title is auto-selected. If you want to rip other titles (e.g. trailer, behind-the-scenes, commentary, etc.), you can manually select the title you want.
Step 4. Click the Output Format icon on the right to open the output format list. Then press the Apple tab and choose iTunes Video as the output format.

Step 6. Finally, click Run to copy the DVD to iTunes video.
