How do I put DVD movies onto PS4? I would like to add my DVDs to my PlayStation 4 so I can watch them on the move but not sure which format to use. When I add them to my HTC mobile I have to convert to MP4 mobile format. The quality is not so good. Would they be better on my Nexus 7? Which video format is best?
