What does “strip” mean?
When you look up ways to convert your favorite movie from the DVD to a file you can save on your devices — PC, phones, tablets, etc., you will probably see the word “strip” “rip” “convert” frequently. So what do these verbs mean in this scenario? Here’s the simple way to put it: DVDs and Blu-rays all come with some sort of copy protection scheme, which is designed to prevent the reproduction/copying of the content. So in order to convert DVD/Blu-ray content to, say, a MP4 file, you need to first strip that protection from the disc. Then you rip the content off from the disc, and lastly you convert that content into a format that can be read by your players/devices. So Blu-ray/DVD rippers, converters and strippers are similar, if not exactly the same, things. What they do is essentially to convert Blu-ray/DVD content into a file you can play on the device/player you want.

MP4 format is one of the most common video formats that can be supported by most players/devices. MP4 file sizes are relatively small but the quality remains high even after compression. Therefore, converting Blu-ray/DVD to MP4 would be convenient once and for all to a certain extent.
