Ten years ago, if you want to watch a movie, it doesn't get much easier than dropping a disc into a tray and pressing Play. These days, however, we hope that every movie can be available at our fingertips on every electronic device because we all know that without a good movie or a good book, how boring a flight or train ride can be!

Thankfully, there are so many ways we can convert DVDs to MP4, a format that's compatible with a wide range of devices. Here's our guide on how to convert DVD files to MP4 with FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate.
