Before you start DVD to smart TV with Chromecast 2 conversion, you should know the video formats and system requirements for using Chromecast 2: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media
Someone used MakeMKV to backup some DVD's that I own so I can watch them on my Chromecast. It extracts the audio and video stream(s) from any DVD that you feed it and then outputs it as a single MKV file. It doesn't involve any transcoding so it should only take a few minutes. You can then stream that MKV to your Chromecast 2 with Videostream or Plex. Or you can also use Handbrake. But the way I use is rip DVD to Chromcast 2 and smart TV compatible MP4 with an ultimate DVD Ripper tool and use the Chromecastís local playback workaround to stream the movies to Chromecast 2 instead of installing other apps. It will save your time and effort in establishing a complete and convenient online personal movie theater.
