    Hello,

    so i have this DVD in front of me and was wondering, if there's any chance to watch it on my Surface RT.

    I guess I have to rip the dvd and convert the .vob files to mp4, or any other surface rt compatible file ?

    Does anyone know a good converter, free, WITHOUT a stupid watermark in the middle of the movie?

    Thanks for your help!

    Just use Handbrake to convert to MKV or M4V

    Ditto to Handbrake, at default settings. Looks terrific on the RT.

    Can you provide more information. I've never been able to get Handbrake to work with a commercial DVD. Thanks,

    You won't be able to find Handbrake in the store since it has to run on a standard x86 PC (which you'll need for the optical drive anyway). You can find it here: HandBrake

    I'm sorry it doesn't run on the RT as it is a Desktop application.
