How to stream DVD movies online

Posted by admin, at 4 December 2014

To convert DVD movies to digital files on the computer that can then be uploaded to the web and privately streamed online, find a DVD conversion program compatible with your operating system.

The free, cross-platform Handbrake works with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems. Other free or inexpensive programs include Win X DVD Ripper for Windows or Free DVD Ripper for Mac. Commercial software with faster conversion speeds and more features like Wondershare's Video Converter Ultimate or NCH Software's Prism program (both around $50 with Windows and OS X versions available) are other options; many companies offer trial versions you can test before buying. If you do not find suitable software, third-party DVD conversion services are also available in many areas. 
Be sure to convert the files into video formats that work well with online streaming, like .MP4 or QuickTime .MOV files. 
Once you have converted the home movies to digital video files on your computer, find a video-sharing service that you like. YouTube and Vimeo are among the sites that let you adjust the privacy settings on your videos so that only people you invite may view the clips; social media sites may also work for your needs.

Other online services like Google Drive, Microsoft's OneDrive or Dropbox can also host short videos. Once you have the videos uploaded, send off the URLs or use share links provided by your chosen site so your family members can find the clips and stream them to their computers or mobile devices.
