The era of physical DVDs is coming to an end. Nowadays, it is very difficult to see a laptop/computer coming with an integrated DVD drive. People are moving to video streaming services since they are a lot more convenient and deliver higher quality. However, if you’ve already had a DVD collection, it might be still very valuable since the content might not be found online. Therefore, it is highly recommended to make a backup of your DVDs as soon as possible. Those discs might get scratches or mold and your DVD players could not read those discs anytime.
By ripping those DVDs, you will be able to play them on your computer, TV, or smartphone easily. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a great solution that can do the job. The software is ideal for ripping new DVDs, 99-title DVDs, workout DVDs, even damaged DVDs with interactive DVD scanning system and new title checking mechanism. It can even deal with Disney DVDs with sophisticated DRM (digital rights management) technology; When you try those DVDs with other tools, you might end up with 99 titles and a huge file size. By analyzing your DVDs, WinX DVD Ripper can find the right title and you can start ripping immediately.
Unlike some free ripping tools, WinX DVD Ripper is much easier to use even when you don’t have any knowledge of ripping techniques. Anyone can make a DVD backup within a few minutes. Once you open the software, you can choose Disk, Image or Folder as video source, choose a video output format, select destination folder, select any other option on the right and press Run to start the ripping process.
Moreover, the new version support both CPU and GPU level-3 hardware acceleration by utilizing Intel QSV and NVIDIA (CUDA) NVENC; this means it can accelerate the ripping speed while keeping the highest possible quality. According to the developer, copy a whole DVD could take just 5 minutes. In my test, it took me around 12 minutes; the speed varies depending on your PC’s hardware.
The software can clone the whole DVD to a folder or ISO file but most of us will convert to some popular video formats including MP4, AVI, FLV, H.264, MOV, and M2TS. So, you won’t have any problem playing these files on any device. If you just want to retain the music, you can also extract it to MP3, AAC, or AC3 files.
Notably, the DVD ripper also comes with a built-in video editor. The editor is pretty basic and it offers just a few simple functionalities like volume adjustment, subtitle addition, crop, expand, and trim.
