A bit of an unusual question. I'm hoping to move the family back to the USA next year.
Due to the cost of transport, and the region coding of the DVD's I would like to convert them to MP4 files or MKV/similar so I can still watch them in the States without the cost of a specialist player. I've been buying them since 2001 so I've got a fair few. I can't say I want to convert them all, but some I really want to keep.
Is there any good software I could use to convert my collection to digital? Also is this legal to do? Do I need to keep the DVD's or can I dispose of them once converted?
