"Is there an easy way to rip all my sons DVD-movies so he can watch it on our TV through our NAS-drive? We have bought all our movies, why should my kid not be able to see them on his tablet, right?! I have two small kids, two sons, who will both be watching these cartoons for ten to fifteen more years. Me and my family watch the movies on our TV (the movies are now stored on our NAS-drive) and we will be watching on my laptop from time to time I think."
