The best ripper out there for DVDs

Post by ultimateX021 » Fri Nov 19, 2010 3:02 pm

Yo.

I'm planning to get a laptop this Christmas and I know there are many rippers out there to use. Which ones would give the best quality on ripping clips of dvds and at least doesn't take up too much space.

DVDFab is designed to rip protected DVDs and BDs. However, for the most recent BDs, newer protections are available that require you to use the payware version of DVDFab. So the free version of DVDFab is slightly limited with BDs. For the time being a good free solution is MakeMKV, but it will be free only as long as it stays beta. When it'll become stable, it'll become payware (not ETAs on that yet, AFAIK).

About DVDfab, just installed it, but didn't mention any free-version. I think I have only 30days to experiment it..

When you load it the first time, you get a list of things... the bottom choice is the free one. Anyway, while you use it, even if it expires, the basic features (the only ones you really care about, the ripping of DVD9 and BD) WILL stay free and available.

Yeah, what Mirko said. After the 30 days, the DVD5 option (which recompresses the video and loses quality) becomes inactive, therefor removing an annoying and easily-overlooked step when ripping DVDs. You should always use DVD9 if you want to maintain any real quality. The options I generally use are "Main Movie" for the most part, then I select episodes individually. I also use "Full Disc" sometimes and then just select the right .vob files when I use DGIndex. DVDFab hasn't failed me yet, even on the recent Funimation Trigun release.

Thanks all of you. DVDfab sounds like a good ripper to use. I'll invest time in exploring its features when I download AMVapp. I'll just have to wait to get the laptop first.

I gotta say that sounds really helpful right there. If that is true, then I won't have to worry about purchasing the program. Saves me money right there!

Got DVDfab. I'm currently picking open spaces to watch an anime I love, so I could pin point which episodes have the best footage. I've already listened to a song from a video game several times. The song and anime have been mixed and mingled in my head so many times, I'm at that stage where I could determine what episodes are important to watch and what scenes actually match my concept. When I finish watching the anime, I'll set up a storyboard system using Powerpoint then start using DVDfab after I've identified the episodes and scenes needed.

what are BDs?

And are you referring to DVD Decryptor or something else?
