Note: If you have the ripped DVDs that maintain the original DVD file structure(VIDEO_TS), you still need a DVD ripper to reformat these DVD files.

Convert Blu-rays or DVDs to Plex-compatible format
Here I will an easy guide for copying and streaming DVDs or Blu-rays to Plex Media Server with a few mouse clicks with the best Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper. Here we take Windows Blu-ray Ripper screenshot, other program mentioned above share the same steps besides the tiny difference in interface.
STEP 1. Import Blu-ray or DVD movies
Insert your Blu-ray or DVD disc into your BD drive or DVD drive, run the Blu-ray Ripper and click “BD/DVD disc” icon to load movies.
After the Blu-ray or DVD files are loaded, you can preview them on the right viewing window and take snapshots of your favorite movie scene.
Blu-ray or DVD folder, ISO and IFO files are also supported.
Note: Before loading Blu-ray content, a BD drive is needed and pls keep networked.
STEP 2. Decide output format
Click the “Format” option, and choose MPEG4, MOV from Common Video profile list. If you want to keep 1080p resolution as source movie, you can choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mp4) for Plex Media Server.
Note: The output format is preferably in a common format, like MP3 for audio, MPEG-4 for video. The more common format you use, the more devices you can stream to. For example, if you use FLAC instead of MP3 for your music, you can’t stream to your Xbox 360. Just keep in mind that not all devices support all formats of media.
Tip – Advanced Settings:
If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
STEP 3. Start ripping Blu-ray or DVD to Plex
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Blu-ray ripper will start the conversion from Blu-ray or DVD movies to Plex Media Server.
You can view the conversion progress and are able to cancel the converting process at anytime.
When the conversion is over, click “open” to locate converted movies. Then, Plex will recognize, catalog, play and stream them just fine, just get the ripped Blu-ray or DVD movies onto Plex Media Server easily.
