Can InqScribe play video from a DVD?

While InqScribe can read and control digital media files saved on a data DVD disc, InqScribe does not yet support DVD format. We are working on direct support for transcription of DVD format.

In the meantime, we recommend a workaround that involves converting your DVD to a standard media file. There are a number of free options for Windows and Mac, such as Handbrake, that simplify the process of converting DVD formats to an InqScribe-friendly MPEG4 format. Once you’ve converted your media to MPEG4, simply locate the file through InqScribe’s “Select Media Source…” dialog.
