As is know to all, Sony released its own virtual-reality hardware for PS 4 on 16/10/2016, which is called PlayStation VR and may become the most accessible virtual-reality glass in 2016 because it come up with over 50 games at launch while selling only at $399. However, other than that, Sony PlayStation VR can be used as a special glass（just like a 3D glass we wore at the cinema）to watch movies via PS 4 and what is important is that the effect is amazing. Naturally, all this is thanks to PS VR’s cinematic 2D big-screen mode.
Unfortunately, we need a PS 4 to use a Sony PlayStation VR, so if we want to enjoy our local movies with this Sony virtual-reality headset, we must achieve that through a PS 4. I’m a DVD collection enthusiast and the approach of mine is to use a DVD/ Blu-ray ripper to rip my DVD collection to MP4 video that supported by PS 4 first, and then transfer them to PS 4, at last watch them with my Sony PlayStation VR via my PS 4. Below I call this aspect of the operation flow to you!
I am using a Mac book Pro with OS X EI Capitan and I choose Leawo Blu-ray ripper for Mac to help rip my DVD collection to PS 4. I think it is a powerful DVD ripping software for Mac OS X as I buy and use it for over a year （it works great on ripping DVD to my potable device iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2）and its service is quite satisfying.
