FAQs

In what format should I rip a dvd?

If you need to edit what you’ve ripped, then it’s most likely that you’ll need an uncompressed format like avi file or mpeg-2 (if your editing software supports this). Or if what you’re doing is burning the movie to DVD, then an MPEG-2 format like mpg or vob will be fine.

The type of compression used for a particular version depends on what’s most important at that time: storage space on the original disc, transmission over the internet (via broadband and/or dial up), or what’s most important for what you’re going to be doing with the video (editing, burning to DVD, playing on your own computer etc).

Which software is best to use for DVD ripping?

The answer depends on what you want to rip and what your computer can handle. There are many DVD ripper software out there but they mostly vary in what DVD formats they’re capable of ripping, which operating systems that support them and what price that particular piece of software costs.

The two main types of DVD ripping software are what is called “rippers” and what is called “cloners”. Rippers will rip the entire disc into a single file, while cloners will create what’s called “ISO” files which can then be burnt to a blank disc.

Other than that there really isn’t too much difference between what’s available, some DVD rippers are said to be better than others but that all comes down what your requirements actually are.

What about DVD ripping tools?

DVD Ripping tools, what are they? Well DVD ripping tools fall into the same category as what we have already mentioned above, cloners and rippers. They are what we call encrypter tools, what they do is take the raw video and audio data and then “scramble” it into what appears to be a unintelligible mess of characters that you would not normally see.

A very famous DVD ripping tool known as DVDFab is now considered one of best dvd encrypter tools and what I personally use.
