Unlike ripping CDs, ripping DVDs poses many challenges for
the average user.
Because you need to get audio and video and need to get them
synced correctly problems with the final version frequently arise.
One common problem is that the volume is too low.
The solution might seem to be to simply turn up the
speakers, but the sound of a low-volume movie cranked up can crackle or
distort. Instead, you increase your DVD rip volume by changing it before you
begin the rip process.
Increase DVD rip volume with iSofter DVD Rip (see Below).
With this program, a window called "Input
Settings" allows you to control the volume before you begin. After the DVD
is in the computer, you just use the "Volume" slider to increase the
output volume. As of November 2010, the program costs $34.95.
Try Aimersoft DVD Ripper (see Below).
After inserting the disc, you simply click "Load
DVD" and wait for it to load
(this could take a few minutes).
The "Settings" button presents a volume slider
similar to iSofter's.
Push it to the right to increase the output volume.
As of November 2010, the program costs $35.
The free dvd::rip program offers the most customizable
settings for the advanced user
Not only can you increase the output volume with a volume
slider, you can also compress the sound as well.
This is useful for movies with both loud and quiet parts
(such as action movies). It reduces the volume difference so you don't have to
reach for the remote every five minutes.
