High Efficiency Video Coding, HEVC or H.265 for short, is a new coding technology and a fresh video compression standard, which is able to compress video files to nearly the half size but with the equal video definition. Besides, it can optimize the video quality at the identical bit rate. Therefore, if you have collected a large number of DVD discs and want to rip them to videos of a digital format stored in your computer as backups, I will say that ripping DVD to HEVC is a smart choice. In this post, I will teach you how to rip DVD to HEVC by means of two simple ways.


Part 1. Rip DVD to HEVC of High Quality for Free

HandBrake is a free and open-source converter, which is specially developed to help users to convert video/audio format easier. But, it also has the ability to rip DVD disc to digital video format. This multiple-platform transcoder supports Mac, Linux and Windows operating systems. You can follow the tutorials below to rip DVD to HEVC of high quality.

Step 1. Download HandBreak from its official website and then install it into your computer.

Step 2. Boot up HandBreak and then click "Source" to load DVD files.

Step 3. Click on "Browse" to save your converted DVD files.

Step 4. Click "Video" and then choose H.265 from the drop-down menu in "Video Code".

Step 5. Click "Start" to begin ripping DVD to H.265/HEVC.

HandBrake Settings

Follow the tutorials above, you will rip your DVD files to HEVC format of high quality. However, you have to keep in mind that HandBrake does not support the removal of copy protection which means that you cannot rip DVD protected by DRM. Normally, most of the commerical DVD movies are protected by the DRM technology. Therefore, you need to look for another DVD ripper that can help you rip all kinds of DVD discs with or without copy protection. And I strongly recommend you to try the second method.
