Want to play DVD movies on iTunes or sync DVD movies to other iDevices like iPad Mini 3, and iPad Air 2, iPhone 6, Apple TV, etc? The fact is that iTunes does not have the ability to play DVDs, let alone to allow you sync DVD movies to other iDevices. To solve the problem, you can use a free DVD to iTunes converter like HandBrake.

Though HandBrake is free video, DVD and Blu-ray converter, you’ll find that HandBrake only handles DVD or Blu-ray without copy protections. DVD movies like TV series Yes Minister, West Wing, All Creatures Great and Small, family movies and music DVDs are all commercial with copy protection contained. You’ll get no result if you are going to use Handbrake to convert commerical DVDs.
