Ultimate VCD Ripper
Ultimate VCD Ripper is a software utility whose purpose is to aid individuals in ripping VCDs and SVCDs, with a minimal amount of effort.
The upside of portable apps
The installation process can be bypassed, as this product is portable. Consequently, the Windows registry and Start menu are not going to suffer any kind of changes, and it is not going to leave any kind of traces behind.
Another noteworthy aspect is that if you place the program files to an external data device, you make it possible to run Ultimate VCD Ripper on any computer you have been granted access to, by simply clicking the EXE.
You come by a minimal and clear-cut interface, which is only comprised of a few buttons, a drop-down menu and a pane to display your latest work. All types of users can find their way around it, including those with a limited amount of experience with the IT world.
Usage, performance and supported formats
This tool enables you to extract the video contents from VCDs and SVCDs, by simply selecting the source drive and the destination directory, giving a name to the title, clicking the “Go” button and just letting the app do all the heavy lifting.
The ripping process does not take very long, yet you should know it is going to hinder your computer’s performance, as it requires moderate to high resource. Nevertheless, you should know that the results are going to be MPEG 1 or MPEG2 files and their quality is going to be high, provided that the CD’s quality is the same.
In conclusion, Ultimate VCD Ripper is a useful piece of software when it comes to extract the video contents from CDs. It has an intuitive, yet not very appealing interface, the response time is quite good and we did not register any errors or crashes. Nonetheless, it lacks many options that other similar apps enclose.
