DVDRipNburn’s DVD Ripper is a useful piece of software that will make it easier for you to re-encode your video DVDs into a variety of video formats. It supports all the best known video codecs (DivX, XviD, H.264, WMV, and MPEG), and video containers (ASF, AVI, MOV, OGG, and more). It reads both PAL and NTSC discs, and allows you to customize the size and quality of the output video.
Once the disc has been loaded, DVD Ripper shows you the structure of the DVD down to the chapter level. By default, the program will rip all titles included in the disc, every angle available for each title, and all the chapters available for each angle. Chapters are the minimum unit that the program can rip, and the only part of the structure which is truly selectable. Therefore, if you wish to leave a specific title out of the ripping process, you will need to uncheck every chapter of every angle included in that specific title. Note that no information is shown about the different audio and/or subtitle streams available in the DVD, which means that the language of the output file will be selected by DVDRipNburn DVD Ripper. Menus and subtitle streams are automatically ignored by the program.
The video settings dialog offers you a wide range of video containers and video codecs to choose from. For those who find it difficult to decide on which codec to use, DVD Ripper offers defaulted values for the most popular video containers (AVI, MP4, OGG, MPEG TS, MOV, and so on), including the preferred bit rate and the size of the output video. As for the audio, the program supports both MP3 and MPGA.
