“I recently purchased a Synology DiskStation DS214play to store all my music/photos etc on and now I want to backup/rip my DVDs(over 400) on my Synology DS214play for steaming to my iPhone/iPad since Synology NAS’s aren’t really powerful enough on the fly conversion, so which codecs can be played natively on the devices I’m streaming to? Is there any software that can do this ? Please let me know.”

Learn some tips from online, I got know that to copy dozens of DVD movies to Synology DS214play, you need to get the content off the DVD disc as a protection-free and easily readable element for Synology DiskStation. In this case, at the first place powerful third-party software for backup DVD to Synology DiskStation DS214play is what you need.

There are many, many DVD ripping tools like DVDFabHandbrakeDVD Decrypter, etc on the market. I’ve tried a pile of them, but I think the best one I tried is Pavtube ByteCopy. I like that it’s simple to use as I’m not a computer technician. It is capable of ripping Blu-ray and DVD to MP4, AVI, MKV for Synology DS214play streaming with no quality loss; it also enables you to copy BD/DVD movies into lossless mkv format with chapter markers preserved. Mac verson is here. If you haven’t got the software, download it now and let’s start the conversion.How to Backup, Rip DVD to MKV for Synology DiskStation DS214play streaming

Step 1. Insert your DVD disc into your DVD-ROM, run the best DVD to Synology DiskStation Converter and click “BD/DVD disc” icon to load movie from DVD source (Disc, folder, ISO). Set your wanted subtitles and audio track from the drop-down box of “Subtitles” and “Audio” tab.

Step 2. Click the “Format” option, and choose HD Video > MKV HD Video (*.mkv) as output format. If you want to keeping orginal multiple audio tracks, subtitles and chapter markers from Blu-ray, “Multi-track Video > Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV (*.mkv)” is recomended for you.


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.

After conversion, you can stream DVD movies(over 400) through Synology DS214play to HDTV with PS3 or popcorn hour or other DLNA-compliant devices.
