Acala DVD Ripper Professional
Acala DVD Ripper Professional is an application designed to help you prepare DVD videos for PS3, PMP, iPad, iPod and iPhone, among other devices.
But it can also convert items to common video types (e.g. AVI, MPG, MP4, VOB), as well as extract the audio stream and save it as MP3, WMA, AAC and others.
The tool is packed in a clean and intuitive interface. Importing items can be done by using only the folder view because the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Too bad you cannot process more than one DVD video in a single session.
So, you can preview clips in a built-in media player, as well as select the output profile, profile preset and directory, in order to initialize the conversion procedure with the default settings.
Additionally, you can set Acala DVD Ripper Professional to load the DVD video automatically when the application starts, to fast-forward the main movie when it is played for the first time, to disable the screensaver when recording and to turn off the computer automatically after conversion.
The DVD ripping tool requires a moderate-to-high amount of system resources to finish a task briefly. It did not freeze, crash or display error dialogs during our tests. On the other hand, you cannot configure audio and video settings when it comes to the frame rate, aspect ratio, sample rate, volume level and others. Plus, you cannot trim the DVD video by time, size or chapters.
