A lot of times the DVDs are not protected and it allows you to copy the contents and take it over to your favorite computer or a gaming console like PS4, let's say, to be able to playback them later. But, not everything is the same as Copy or Ripping and there is dedicated software to do those tasks brilliantly. Also, many times the DVDs are themselves protected and therefore it is not possible to directly open and copy its contents to play DVD on PS4 or any other device like your smart phone. In those cases too you need dedicated software that does decryption, removing protection and ripping the DVD's contents and making them available to you.

This process can be handled with specialized software like DVDFab, Wondershare Video Converter, and other online video converters as well to play DVD on PS4, finally. The alternatives you choose depend on the task, the amount of it, the ease of usage of one service in your locality and system vs. the other and so on.

The procedure is same in most of the cases. It is primarily a 3-step process, you select the DVD source by browsing to the location, select a preset for output, which is a PS4 and then select the output desired location again by browsing before finally clicking that “Convert” or “Start” button that finishes the job after a while. There may be things like showing real-time progress of the ripping process, allowing advanced settings, even in the selected PS4 preset and others so that you can play DVD on PS4 in your own customized manner.
