How to Play DVD with VLC Media Player

In this article, I will share my experience and offer the best way to help you play DVD videos on VLC Media Player for enjoying with ease. 

VLC, also known as VLC Media Player or VideoLan Client, is a universal media player to play almost any video file and even DVD movies. However, VLC can't automatically determine which file on the DVD contains the actual movie. Instead, you must manually load and preview each file in turn, so it can take a bit of time to get things started. But that's the only real obstacle. When you're done, you'll have an mp1v file you can watch in just about any media player (including VLC, natch). Ah, that VLC—it just keeps giving and giving.

An quick workaround I find to solve the issues is to convert the DVD video files to common formats (like AVI, MOV, MPEG, MP4, etc) to fit the local VLC media player with DVDAid from Pavtube. If you are Mac users, you can try Pavtube DVDAid for Mac.

Overall, this program works successfully in DVD to MP4 conversion even you have a bunch of large DVD files. I have tried it to encode DVD to MP4 for playing on my VLC player, it turns out playing any kinds of DVD files smoothly and at original quality. It’s the best software application for Win users. What's more, this converter also supports many of other video formats like MOV,MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, etc.

Step 1: Add DVD video files

Run DVD to VLC Converter on your computer, and then click "Load disc" button to import the DVD video files to the converter.

Step 2: Choose H.264 MP4 as output format.

In “Format” drop down list box, you may select best video format for plaing on VLC Media Player.

Here, you are recommended to choose Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4); if you want to get HD MP4 files to use on VLC player, you can choose HD Video -> H.264 HD Video (*.mp4).

Step 3: Start Convert

Click “Convert” in the main interface to start transcoding DVD movie to VLC supported H.264 MP4 format.

After conversion, you can use converted MP4 files and open them with VLC Media Player for playback easiliy and smoothly.

Some other better ways to play DVD

If you still cannot solve the problems, here offers you some of the alternatives that will help you out.
