#1 DVD Ripper
#1 DVD Ripper is a powerful application that helps you create backups of your favorite DVD movies, supporting most popular video formats on the market.
While the interface is pretty intuitive and straightforward, you may need a few minutes to figure out how to use the app, and that's why it's highly recommended to have a look in the help file as well.
There are two different viewing modes, “Preview Mode” and “List Mode”, each offering several advanced features to enhance the backup process.
Besides the fact that #1 DVD Ripper supports CSS ripping and removes region protection from DVDs, it can also convert the DVD to MPEG1/VCD, MPEG2/SVCD, DivX, AVI, XviD and WMV.
The whole process is pretty easy to configure, but you should definitely have a look in the “Configure Profiles” screen where you can set up all profiles and settings, including video encoders, frame rate, video size, audio bitrate and aspect ratio.
#1 DVD Ripper works blazing fast and it retains the video quality of the original file. Plus, the resulted backup can even come with subtitles embedded on the clip, with the user being able to extract the audio track and save it separately on the local disk.
#1 DVD Ripper needs a reasonable amount of hardware resources to get the job done and it sometimes stresses up the CPU and RAM while backing up a disk.
But overall, there's no doubt such an application could be very useful to many users out there and since it provides such a user-friendly environment for controlling the backup process, it is aimed at all types of users.
