Many DVD collectors like to rip DVDs then stream DVD movies on HD TV via Server and NAS. But not every DVD rips can be played without any hassle:

“In an effort to make my media more accessible by other systems (Nvidia ShieldTV), I plan to convert all of my raw DVD rips that are on my Unraid NAS (Video_TS, Audio_TS folders respectively) over to MKV. Would you please recommend me a good software to get that?”
