Why People Need to Rip DVD to Apple TV 4 Using AirPlay
“ I need a tool which can help me generally rip DVD collections to MP4 and play back using AirPlay from several iDevices to Apple TV or through HDMI directly to TV. The converted movies usually get played on holiday or on the trip, they would usually be on my iPad Air. Besides, The ripped movies are stored on several external hard drives, USB flash drives and several iDevices. I have just over 1TB stored so far.”
Why Pavtube Customer Choose This Top DVD to Apple TV 4 Ripper:
“Hello, the reason that I purchased the iMedia Converter For Mac was because I hoped it would be faster at ripping than Pavtube DVD Aid and BD Magic. I normally use Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate For Mac which when it works is about twice as fast as DVD Aid and BD Magic at ripping DVD’s at the same compression rate. The trouble is Wondershare sometimes won’t rip some DVD’s, when this happens its usually PavTube to the rescue!!”

Extension Tips: Things Necessary for Streaming via Airplay Mirroring
Not all iOS devices and MacBooks support Airplay Mirroring. In order to stream video and audio via Airplay Mirroring, we need to prepare two things beforehand. On one hand, an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) is required to receive the video and audio. On the other, an iOS device or MacBook is necessary for sending the video and audio. That’s to say, to get the function of Airplay Mirroring, we need to prepare a sender and a receiver, and the sender and the receiver must connect to the same network.
As for receiver, the first generation of Apple TV is not acceptable while the 2nd or later generation can function well. However, for sender, the devices accepatable can be divided into two major parts: iOS devices and MacBooks. iOS devices including iPhone 7 or later, iPad Air 3 or later, iPad mini 4 or later and iPod touch (6th generation), and Mac running El Capitan or higher such as iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer) can all be employed as sender.
