If you all are more informed than I, I've got the Xbox HD-DVD player boxed up here somewhere and would be curious how to rip hd movie files to eventually play through my Apple TV 3. If I were to hook up my Xbox HD-DVD drive to my Xbox360 to play an HD-DVD movie disc, does anyone known specifically how to rip a file off of it via MakeMKV or Handbrake etc.?

I can comprehend the playing of the disc, but how would I proceed to capture/rip an HD video file off it? Also, I'm a Mac-only household with MacPro and current gen iMac.

Thanks in advance for any ideas;

I don't have any HDDVD player or writer or reader to watch. I wanted to thrown it away but somehow still love it
I want to convert it to .mkv or .mp4. Does anyway I can do with it?
Appreciate all input.
Pickup a Xbox 360 HD DVD player on eBay and convert those HD DVDs to BD ISOs using ClownBD. Once you have an ISO you can burn to a BD disk and play in a BD player or leave as an ISO and play in any current model of media players on the market.
mkztg and tinhvo like this.

I've paid for my sins. We're even!

Or just convert to digital since discs are on the decline.

I was gonna suggest red2blu but I guess that service is down and it is only for warner bros. movies only anayway. The cheapest way is to buy the titles you have from ebay or amazon on blu-ray, can't get any cheaper than that.
