    How many movies per CD? What format? In general, you would have to get the movies off the CDs and into a folder or folders before uploading to iCloud. Then it should be like any other file you upload.

    What is the file extension after each movie file name? The 3 letter/numbers after the . Like .m4v or .MKV

    I agree this works like uploading any other file but make sure the files will still play without the cd present. Some of these old movie conversations had dedicated software on the cd that would play the file. Copy one of the movies to a computer’s desktop. Eject the cd and see if the movie will open and play. You may need to download VLC to play files not compatible with QuickTime or iTunes.
