[Solutions]How to rip DVD to Apple TV with AC3 5.1 audio track on Mac OS X

Ever thought of putting your DVD collections to Apple TV? With digital backups on Apple TV, you will never have to hunt for a movie in hundreds of DVDs and then bother to place it in a DVD player. Instead, you just sit on the bed and select desired movie with a handy remote control. Dont worry that Apple TV does not play surround sound. The Apple TV itself can not decode AC3 5.1 codec, but it is able to optically pass through the AC3 audio to your AV receiver that output 6 channels to your speakers.

How to copy DVD movie to Apple TV supported video while keeping the AC3 track? Let Pavtube Mac DVD to Apple TV Ripper help you. The DVD to Apple TV Ripper for Mac is able to convert DVD to Apple TV, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, PS3 and many other devices on Mac OS X for playback. Follow this guide to rip DVD to Apple TV meanwhile extract the AC3 audio track!

Step-by-step guide of converting DVD to Apple TV with AC3 5.1 track:
Step 1. Load DVD to the software for converting DVD movies to Apple TV.
Insert a source DVD in optical drive. Install and launch the Pavtube DVD to Apple TV Ripper for Mac software, click “DVD Folder” and navigate to the DVD Video_TS folder, click “Choose”. When the DVD is loaded to DVD Ripper, you can select subtitles and audio track (English, French, German, Spanish…) for each chapter. Forced subtitles can be attained, too.

Step 2. Set an Apple TV format that is encoded with H.264/ AC3.
Click on “Format”bar to select output format. Here you are advised to follow “HD Video”and select “H.264 HD Video (*.mov)”. Under the tab of “Apple TV” there are Apple TV optimized formats with AAC 5.1 and stereo audio.

Step 3. Get AC-3 5.1 surround sound and proper aspect ratio.
Click on “Settings” and you could further customize video and audio parameters. For DVD to Apple TV conversion, optimal settings should be Video Size- 720*432 (for a 16:9 screen) or 720*480 (for a 4:3 screen), Video Bitrate- 4000kbps at highest quality, Video Frame rate- 24fps or 30fps, Audio codec- ac3, Audio Sampling rate- 48000hz, Audio Bitrate- 160kbps, Audio Channels- 6 Channels, just as it shows in below picture. Don’t forget to click on “OK” to confirm your settings.

Step 4. Start ripping DVD to Apple TV video with Dolby Digital 5.1 track!
Click on “Convert”button to start DVD to Apple TV conversion on Mac. The Mac DVD Ripper will bypass copy-protections and convert DVD to Apple TV video with AC3 6 channels track. After conversion you can click “Open” button to get the final ripped DVD files (H.264/ AC3 MOV videos).

Step 5. Sync the ripped DVD movie to Apple TV for playback.
Connect Apple TV with your Mac. Open iTunes, find the Movies library of Apple TV in DEVICES, and drag the converted DVD movies to the Movie library of Apple TV. Or you may copy the movies to iTunes Library and sync them to Apple TV in batches. When playing ripped DVD movie with Apple TV, make sure an optical cable is used to pass through AC3 5.1 track to your AV receiver. Some folks find audio is missing while video plays fine. This is because they are using Analog audio ports to output audio instead of Optical digital audio port, or the connected AV receiver/amplifier does not support AC-3 decoding.
