All You Need To Know About Ripping DVD


<p> <p><span>Ripping your music CDs to MP3 changes everything. Instead of juggling CD cases and spending time hunting through the bookcase for the CD with the one track you really feel like hearing, you can choose from your entire music library and enjoy it instantly on your desktop computer or portable media player. You get your content when, where and how you want it. And since making a copy for personal use is generally legally acceptable, so there's plenty of software available.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Things are not as simple when it comes to ripping DVDs, however. For one thing, the DVD video format is more complicated. Each track on a CD is a WAV file that you can copy or convert, but the content of a DVD is divided into multiple VOB files for the video, with separate audio tracks and a menu system. The menus let you navigate through the video scenes and access alternative soundtracks, captions, camera angles, audio commentaries and extra content.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The files required in DVD ripping are much larger, especially on dual-layer DVDs, and the conversion is a more complicated process. Video processing is also very CPU-intensive; it could take you a full 24 hours to copy a DVD on a 500 MHz PC, while even a 2 GHz processor will take three or four hours to do the job. And while the version you watch on your PC or media player will be a much smaller file than what's on the DVD, you'll still need up to 10 GB of free space for the files during the ripping process.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>For commercial DVDs, there are other considerations including the copy protection on the discs, and the legality of copying the content (even for personal use). Some of the most famous DVD ripping software is also no longer available legally, although bogus similarly-named versions abound. And finally, not all of the DVD copying software you can buy will work with commercial DVDs</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>DVD Ripper</span><span> converts video to the right codec and resolution for a wide range of portable media players.</span><br /> <p><span>Copying DVDs isn't about piracy - you might just want to make a backup. Because while DVDs are physically robust and long lasting, they're no match for a small child with a jar of peanut butter. Playing the same DVD over and over again doesn't damage it, but the disc can pick up dust and minute scratches as you take it in and out of the case. Enough of them can make DVD playback jump, or more often, stop altogether. (By the way, don't store a DVD horizontally, leave it on a sunny window sill, or keep it in a CD case; the central hub fits the disc too tightly and can damage it).</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>In some rare cases, the layers of the disc can separate - this is called delamination - or spots of corrosion can appear. Although these are grounds for getting the disc replaced, that's not always possible or worth the time and hassle.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>In addition to backup, the video iPod and similar devices allow you to watch videos in smaller and more convenient forms than portable DVD players. And while Media Center PCs always have DVD drives, you still have to physically change DVDs to watch something different. Finally, if you play a DVD on your laptop on a plane trip, you run down the battery faster because you're accessing both the DVD and hard drives.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Note</span><span>&#65306;</span><span>if you want to rip dvd on mac , you need to user dvd ripper for mac.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>But convert the video on a DVD to an AVI, DivX, or other alternative file format and you can watch it in far more places. You could store the files on a server or NAS device, and watch them on any PC in the house without having to fetch the disc from another room (and without being restricted to PCs that have DVD drives.) You can also take several DVDs with you without lugging around extra weight and bulk.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <span>Note, however, that ripping a DVD to another format reduces video quality even with best dvd ripper. You can't expect the same detail or resolution, and you'll usually lose DVD special features and extra content. But on a smaller screen, or in situations where you couldn't use even a portable DVD player, you may feel the compromise is worthwhile.</span><br />

How to rip commercial DVDs on Mac - for playback on wide screen TV via WD TV...


How to rip commercial DVDs on Mac - for playback on wide screen TV via WD TV Mini

theme100330.jpg

WD TV Mini Media Player supports up to 1080i resolution for crisp HD media playback, besides this feature, it will never limit the size of your media collection, and you just need add more drives as you like. However there is no luck with commercial DVDs, even though you need not consider about the storage space, because these DVDs have strict copy protections, which WD TV Mini is unable to decrypt. To rip commercial DVDs to a compatible format with WD TV Mini on your Mac, what you will need is Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac only. Go to find a step-by-step instruction as below.

First off, have a look at WD TV Mini Media Player supported media formats:

Videos:
AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10

Audios:

Step 2: Select an output format for WD TV Mini Media Player

Click on the pull down menu of "Format" to a WD TV Mini Media Player supported format as output format. Here I select "Xvid AVI" as my choice.

Step 3: Set advanced settings

Click on "Settings" button, and you are allowed to adjust audio and video parameters on the popup window including codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, aspect ratio, and audio channels. The user manual of WD TV Min tells us that when playback .avi (Xvid) video files, WD TV Mini supports up to 720*576 30fps or 720*480 30fps, so we need to follow the manual while ripping a DVD.

Step 4: Set destination folder

Click "Browse" button to specify where to export the output files to.

Step 5: Click "Convert" button to start ripping DVD

The following window will show you clearly about the ripping info, such as time elapse, estimated left time, generated file size, and estimated file size. In that way, you are able to manage your time and storage space in a proper way.

Once ripping work is done, you can click "Open" button to get the output files for WD TV Mini effortlessly.

Additional tips:

1. The ripping speed of this software is 1-2 times faster than the similar programs. Merge multiple files into one file is available.

2. Enable users to select specific subtitle and audio track to convert.

3. Guarantee audio-video in sync.

4. With exception of adding text as watermark, images, GIF animations, and videos can also be added as watermarks to realize the picture-in-picture effect.

5. You can use the "Trim" function to select certain DVD clips to convert. And you can also take advantage of the "Crop" function to remove black edges or change the screen size.

However, if your DVDs are encrypted by CSS, Handbrake is willing to help but unable to do so about this. For protected DVDs, the first thing you will need to do when ripping a movie DVD to AVI is remove the copy protection. Most discs use a variant of the Content Scrambling System(CSS), but many also use other techniques. Although some DVD-ripping apps, like autoMKV, can bypass copy protection, they are not updated as frequently and aren't always successful at defeating new copy protection schemes. Your best choice , therefore, is to top one of the utilities that are dedicated to the task, such as Daniusoft DVD Ripper.
Daniusoft DVD ripper justifies its high price by bypassing new forms of encryption almost immediately after they appear. This apps serve as on-the-fly disc decrypters, stripping copy protection before your ripping or playback software recognizes the disc. Want o rip an encrypted disc to your hard drive?

The last step, click the "start" button to start the conversion. The Ripping speed is fast and you will get the converted AVI files from DVDs in 1-3 hours. Of cause, the length of ripping time is depended on the size of your DVDs. Furthermore, this DVD Ripper offers the option to automatically shut down the computer when the conversion completed.
The original DVD file is near 5 GB, the conversion test on Windows vista 32 Pentium 4 single core system and it works very fast, which takes about 1 hours. And below is this DVD ripper performance screen.

So far, I guess you should try to convert DVD to AVI video by yourself with free DVD to AVI converter(handbrake) or this shareware one(Daniusoft DVD Ripper).
Attention:
Before you begin to use these software, you need to pay attention below items:
1. Understand copyright laws in your country before ripping any copyrighted DVDs.
2. Do not promote or partake in piracy. Although there is some dubiety over whether it is legal to copy DVDs for your own use, making copyrighted DVDs available in the public realm is against the law.
3. Understand that in the US the laws are unclear and conflicting, you might be able to rip a copy of copyrighted material for your own use under the concept of Fair Use. However, circumventing DRM may be illegal in and of itself, regardless of ownership of the IP or intent after disabling the DRM method. Read up on the DMCA and then contact your congressman!
