In many ways, a person's DVD collection represents an extensive investment. Naturally, there's the amount of money spent to acquire it, but there's also the essentially collective nature of the medium. DVDs are not being constantly produced, and to lose a rare or difficult-to-find disc can be a severe inconvenience. Given the value placed on our collections and the inherent difficulty in replacing certain favorites, it's not surprising that many people have taken to using DVD copy software to back up their DVD collections.

iTunes, on one hand, is a media player app to play audios and videos, and on the other hand, a media library to download and manage digital music and video files on PC that runs alternatively on OS X or Windows OS, as well as on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Add unsupported DVD video to iTunes Library 

Reason One : iTunes doesn't natively support AVI, VOB, Tivo, DIVX, MPEG, FLV, MVI, MKV, 3GP, WTV, etc as input formats.

Reason Two: Though Apple announced to support MP4, MOV, M4V, we still encounter issue when adding them into iTunes Library since these formats are container formats which may contain codecs that are not compatible with iTunes.

Reason Three: If the file is an unprotected WMA file and you have Windows Media Player Series 9 or later installed, iTunes makes a copy of the file and adds it to your iTunes library. The original WMA file remains unchanged. You can't add protected WMA files or protected WMV files to iTunes.

iTunes Supported Importing Format

Want to add or play your video/audio files via iTunes but failed? Check out the supported file formats of iTunes at first.

iTunes Supported Video Formats

According to Apple, iTunes supports any video format that works with QuickTime and files purchased or downloaded from iTunes store. That means if your video files have a .mov, .m4v, or .mp4 file extension, generally you can play them in iTunes. However, there are also limitations on video codecs, sample rate, etc. So if your .mov, .m4v or .mp4 files are rejected by iTunes, that may be because of a codec problem.

iTunes Supported Audio Formats

iTunes supported audio formats include: MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, Audible .aa files and iTunes purchased M4A and M4P music files. iTunes can convert between MP3, WAV, AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless.

Add supported video to iTunes Library

Requirement: iTunes (the latest version iTunes 12.3.3 is recommended); iTunes Store account; Internet access (if necessary)

Note: Before importing or adding videos to iTunes, you need to check if the format of the video you want to add is supported by iTunes. Beyond that, you should also make sure the files can be played in QuickTime (not all .mp4 files will play in Quicktime, for example).

Right-click on the video you want to check and select "Properties" (Windows) or "Get Info" (OS X).
Look for the "Type of file" or "Kind" entry. If the file is an .mkv, .wmv, or .avi file, it will need to be converted.
Test the file in QuickTime. If the file is a supported format, load it up in QuickTime to make sure it plays. If it doesn't play, you'll need to convert it.
1.Rename any video files with multiple periods in the name. Oftentimes videos downloaded from torrents will have multiple periods in the name to denote who ripped and encoded the video. Remove any of these extra periods, as they can cause problems when trying to import into iTunes. Right-click on the file and select "Rename" to edit the name.

2. Launch iTunes. Make sure that you are running the latest version.

3. Import the video. Click the File menu (Windows) or iTunes menu (OS X) and select "Add File to Library" (Windows) or "Add to Library" (OS X). Browse for the converted video and select it.

If you are using Windows and don't see the File menu, press the Alt key.
You will not receive any error or confirmation when adding a video file.

For Windows:

For Mac:

4.Click the "Movies" button. This is located in the row of buttons along the top of the iTunes window, and looks like a film strip.

5.Click the "Home Videos" tab. Any movie you import will be added as a "Home Video". If you don't see the video that you just imported, it wasn't properly converted to an iTunes-compatible format.

6. Move the video to your "Movies" or "TV Shows" library. It can be difficult to find the video you want if they're all sorted into the "Home Video" library. Moving them to the proper spot will make it easier to watch or sync the videos later.

Right-click the video and select "Get Info".
Click the "Options" tab in the window that appears.
Click "Home Video" next to "media kind" to select the library that you want to move it to.
Click OK to save the changes. You will now be able to find the video in the proper library.

7.Sync your movies to your iOS device like iPad, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, etc. Now that the files are in iTunes, you can sync them to your iOS device. Click here for details on syncing.

If the video does not sync to your device, you'll need to create a version in iTunes that your device supports. Click File and select "Create New Version". Select the device that you are syncing the video to, and then wait for the conversion to complete.

By default, adding items to your iTunes library places a pointer to each file in the iTunes folder; the original file remains in the current location. For information about copying files to the iTunes folder instead of creating pointers to them.

The steps to copy Blu-ray 3D movies

Tip: We recommend using 1280x720 HD resolution to encode your videos. Higher resolutions will not provide any better quality, meaning you'll waste space and processing power. 

We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone's screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality. 

While H.264 is the recommended video coding, H.265 videos can also be played. 

3D movies should be encoded “full side-by-side” with a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio. Content mastered at 1920x1080 compressed side -by- side 3D should be resampled to 1920x540 resolution full side -by -side resolution.. 

Step 3: Convert 3D Content to SBS 3D MP4. 

Click “Convert” button, video to SBS 3D MP4 conversion begins. When the process finishes, open the output folder to locate.
