DVDs might not be at the cutting edge of home entertainment, and the whole idea of physical media might steadily be dying out, but that still leaves many of us with a library of movies and TV boxsets, looking for a way to digitise your DVD library for enjoying them on our media streamers and mobile devices or archive them for viewing in the years to come. After all, you can’t always find your favourites on the usual streaming services, while buying the same stuff again on another new HD format isn’t always the best use of your money.
Sadly, ripping DVDs on your Windows PC isn’t quite as easy as, say, ripping MP3s. Windows 10 doesn’t even have a built-in tool to play DVDs, let alone rip them, and while there are free DVD rippers available, they often struggle to do a great job. Some are slow, awkward to use or flaky, while others can’t cope with the full range of copy-protection systems used on commercial DVDs. Nobody wants to spend hours slowly ripping TV shows and movies at a snail’s pace, only to have the whole thing tripped up by copy protection or a software bug.
Luckily, there is a better way. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a different kind of DVD tool; fast, flexible and easy to use, making short work of a pile of DVDs. The latest version – version 8.8.0 – goes even further, with level-3 hardware acceleration supported to leverage Intel QSV and NVIDIA CUDA/NVENC technology to expedite decoding, processing and also encoding, plus mechanisms designed to cope with the most challenging – and annoying – 99-title DVDs. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is without a doubt the best DVD ripper in the market. (Download your free trial)
The Best DVD Ripper for 99-title DVDs
DVDs with large numbers of titles have become a bugbear when ripping DVDs to MP4 or some other format. Some, like fitness DVDs, just have complex structures so that viewers can choose their own workouts. Others have been designed with excess titles simply to make life hard for people copying DVDs. Either way, they’re a real headache for users trying to legitimately convert or back-up their DVDs.
If so, WinX DVD Rippler Platinum has the remedy, analysing the disk and intelligently picking out the most important titles for conversion. Here’s a guide that introduces how WinX DVD Ripper digitises the 99-title DVDs. In the vast majority of cases there’s no need to go through, manually selecting titles and soundtracks. Insert the disc, click the DVD button, select an output profile for the device you want to play back from and you’re good to go. You can go from selecting the disk to starting ripping in under a minute. Even obscure discs with ISO 9600 and non-UDF formats are covered, making this an incredibly flexible and powerful DVD digitising tool.
Higher Speed in DVD Ripping
The actual conversion process is faster than ever before as well, thanks to revolutionary and unique level-3 CPU and GPU hardware acceleration technology that makes full use of Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) and NVIDIA NVENC. QSV uses dedicated processing power on Intel CPUs to speed up video decoding, processing and encoding functions, and the version built into the latest Skylake and Kaby Lake Processors allows PCs with a 32x DVD drive to rip full movies in five minutes or less. NVENC does much the same using the sheer parallel processing grunt of the latest GeForce GPUs. That TV box-set that used to take several hours to rip can now be tackled in under sixty minutes.
All of this comes without any compromise to image or sound quality. Thanks to the High Quality Engine and Yadif Double Frames De-interlacing Engine, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum delivers video that looks great on your smartphone or when upscaled on a 1080p or 4K TV screen. Free download WinX DVD Ripper Platinum and see how fast it can be in digitising you DVD collections.
High speeds and a simple workflow might be the program’s biggest strengths, but there are plenty of more advanced options available for those who want more control. You can select which titles to convert or copy, pick stereo or surround audio streams in DTS or AC3 and add subtitles in any available language – or even add externally developed .SRT format subtitles if needed. What’s more, intuitive editing features make it easy to crop the image for a specific display or trim away unwanted footage, or potentially rip just one scene. You can also merge several titles together, turning several videos into just one file.
Plus, where other DVD rippers are ceasing development, Digiarty, the maker of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, continues to invest in new features and continuing support. That’s resulted in a program that has coped with new copy-protection measures and that includes output profiles for the latest smartphones and tablets. While the heyday of DVD might have come and gone, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum doesn’t feel stuck in the past.
