How to Backup Blu-ray & DVD Movies to WD MyCloud


Western Digital MyCloud, a hard drive that connects to your home network, then you can access it from the internet—from a PC, smartphone, or tablet—just like a cloud service.

"I bought a 3TB MyCloud device a few months ago and I am looking for a simple way to backup my Blu-ray and DVD collections to WD MyCloud, so that I can view my Blu-ray and DVD collections from any smart TV in the house to share with my family. In conjunction with the WD MyCloud I should be able to stream videos to iPad which will be great for the kids.”

Although WD MyCloud can support a wide range of format like MP4, MOV, MKV, due to the reason of lacking Blu-ray drive, WD MyCloud can not meet the demands of put Blu-ray discs online. So if you have a large Blu-ray and DVD collections, why not rip them into *.mp4, *.mkv or other WD compatible format, so that you can store all of those movies onto WD MyCloud Network disk for better playing and sharing. /infographics/blu-ray-dvd-ripper-review.html
