I've been told that DVD can be uploaded to Cloud but I don't know how to do it. Is there any help I can use? Is it complicated?

With the appearance of Cloud server, people are uploading everything they want to backup to their Cloud account, photos, important files, family video, etc. Indeed, uploading to Cloud does bring us various benefits, so does uploading DVD to Cloud.

The benefit you can get from uploading DVD to Cloud:

• Prevent loss or damage to the disc.

• Have access to the DVD on any devices once you log in your Cloud account.

• Save the trouble to transfer the DVD to whatever device you want to play the DVD.
