I am not sure I understand - if I want to duplicate a DVD - can this software be used? I mean copy, not shrink, so target DVD will have exactly the same content as the original one.

This program is good for making videos to be watched on hand held items. If you want wuality reproductions then do not use this program.

This program seems to have a few problems even with the DVD43 installed. Looking like windows media player with different buttons it stuck into the intro video loops for the 10 test DVDs I used to test with, Copyrighted and non Copyrighted, Some commercial and some created by myself(some with full menu driven, others not). I have other programs that load and process these same DVDs with no problem costing in the same price range or cheaper. My recommendation would be to review the intro fast forward section of the program; it is missing the queue to load the menu trapping it into the loop.

I use dvd decryptor, which is getting difficult to find, but can be found. after, I use any video converter and it works great with many different modes to choose from to convert to. They look great on my curve at about 1gig or less each after conversion. I like the higher quality...that's just me. i have a 4gig card and have 4 movies and 100+ songs.

As others have said, you need a DVD burner to burn an actual DVD. However, you can burn VCD format with a CD burner, and that will actually play on quite a few newer consumer DVD players.

#21, mike, "most DVD drives are speed limited to discourage copying"-you keep posting nonsense like that. DVD-drive speed doesn't discourage copying. DVD-burners certainly aren't speed-limited (22x drives for $25). On DVD-video playback, most drives spin at one of their slower speeds because higher speeds generate a lot of noise and consume more power, for no gain in playback performance. Most consumers want to be able to hear the movie that they're watching.

garfey2006 - Unfortunately you do need an actual "DVD burner" to burn a DVD. My laptop has a combination CD/DVD burner that does the trick.

DVD Shrink is my favorite ripper. It has a very easy to use GUI. It also does not have to shrink the dvd as another commenter was complaining about. It has a full backup button. You can also manually set the file size to be as large as you want. The nice thing about it, is that you can rip just the movie and leave the trailers and other stuff off. The bad thing about it, is that it is not updated any more. For DVDs that it can't handle I use HDFab.
Todays offer does more than just ripping though. It aslo converts the video which eliminates a step in the process. I have to rip with shrink and then open another software app (usually super) to do the conversion.

I have a question that possibly others may wonder about as well,
can someone answer it for me?


My laptop has a CD burner but no DVD burner. Can I use this
software (or some other software) to enable burning DVD's,
or does that require having a DVD burner already installed?


(I really hate dumb questions... sure do hope this isn't one.)

“…convert DVD movies to AVI, DIVX, XVID, VCD, SVCD, MPEG, iPod(MP4), iPhone, Apple TV, FLV, [...] without any loss of quality.”
Without any loss of quality! What a joke! How could we trust a company that says something like that! The loss of quality is enormous. Dot. Thumb down, because they think we are stupid!

I suggest you try the other free dvd ripper, this Extra DVD Rippe is the worst one I have tried in the conversion quality.

I'm trying to figure out how to output to DivX or Xvid, and have so far been unsuccessful. The "AVI" option doesn't appear to let you choose which actual codec to use.

Well, I downloaded it from their home page. Activated it with this key code & it took it. GUI is excellent, program is small & loads fast on both XP & Vista Ultimate 32 bit.
Thats where the good news ends for me. It seems like you have to watch the movie while ripping so I had to uninstall it. I just don't have time for all that just to give it a real workout. To bad really because it's a great looking program.
Theres only one that actually works the way I like it to. Thats Clone DVD. Unfortunately, it's not a freebie. Each to his / her own so I refrained from voting on this one. If you have the time so sit whilw watching & ripping, you might like this & have a place for it on your computer.

So, I ran it up, and was horrified at the user interface! Are they joking? Apart from the danger of Microsoft suing them over usage of their Media Player graphics, it uses the maximize button to trigger the about box (!?!?!?!), and doesn't appear to be resizable at all. It wasn't immediately apparent how to operate the program, so perhaps a browse of the help files is necessary.

On the plus side, it did manage to rip a DVD quite well for me. But then, even though it managed this successfully, I did have to close the program using Task Manager (it had crashed).

Not a keeper for me, I'm afraid. A little more spit and polish, please. Oh, and if encoders in general could make an effort to automatically preserve the aspect ratio of the original video file, that'd be smart!

#3: "A resource hog; converting a DVD slowed my system to a standstill. Converts only while playing the DVD - recording from played video."

FWIW it used the graphics card hardware acceleration on my recent (but fairly cheap) ATI graphics card. CPU usage was around 50 - 60 %, or about average for better versions of these converters on my PC.

#4: "...I have been looking for a working dvd ripper for a long time."

DVDFab. Comes in free or pay versions, & is constantly updated.

#8: "...nice little free program DVD43..."

Please - anyone thinking about using this app, Google 1st & check out user complaints before adding it to your system.
------
For-what-it's-worth, get the DVD on your hard drive before converting, using something like the free DVDFab; most DVD drives are speed limited to discourage copying, plus, you're often not wasting any time since the DVD usually has to be re-written anyway - even if it's from a DVD Recorder because they do not write standard DVDs.

Shrink, which is mentioned frequently, is a great little app but, it's recommended to just use it for what it's intended: reducing the size on disc of a DVD so you don't have to burn a dual layer blank. Try DVDFab.

This programme is quite good and the quality is OK if you remember to set the options that you have. Just made a trial convertion of a dvd-movie and it is when showen on the laptop in a quality that can be accepted for backup of dvd movies and even as copy that you can bring with you on travels insted of bringing the original DVD.

I gave Extra DVD Ripper Express a quick try in Vista 32 Home Prem. SP1... It’s a small program, takes up just less that 15 meg on disc, & at first glance is a lot like the other ffmpeg based video converters GOTD has offered. It has a neat, clean interface, and quite a few output templates, but if you want to tweak the settings you’re out of luck. It’s unusual in requiring you to display your video as it converts - this is a bit less efficient, taking up resources for an essentially useless display. On-the-other-hand it’s fast, taking less than 30 minutes for a 1.5 hour movie I recorded to DVD. That speed comes with a price of less quality, but, I don’t know how important that is if playback is going to be on a 2 inch or so screen.

You’ll want to set your output folder and template before loading your DVD - once you import the DVD it starts playing & wants to start the conversion... cancel the conversion to set your output and you have to load the DVD again to get it to convert. You DON’T want your headphones on when you start the program - a wizard figure (that I found annoying) pops up & starts talking in what I found a loud voice... right click on it and you can select Hide.

If you don’t have the Xvid codec installed already, you may want to download & install it before installing Extra DVD Ripper Express - the program comes with a fairly old version. As I mentioned, quality might be a bit less... I say might because I only tried 1 of the mpg4 templates, and I’ll definitely be re-encoding it. While MediaInfo showed the file as being 4:3, everything but Power DVD 7 played it wide screen (16:9) - Power DVD crashed though soon after starting to play the file. MediaInfo also showed the frame rate as PAL 25 instead of NTSC 29.976 or 30 fps. Quality was relatively poor.

Not too bad for what it is

In the end, it is another video conversion program, though for DVD's this time. I like Xilisoft better, but this one looks pretty nice, and works pretty well.

A rip of the full length movie "Fight Club" took about 2.5 hours. Protection wasn't a problem, worked really nice.

Most people are used to these sleek, top of the line, cures cancer and AIDs DVD rippers; I am used to ripping it manually with DVD decrypter and converting with AutoGK, which takes a LOT longer, this just saves a step.

7/10 Get it 'cuz it's free.

@2; The Xilisoft offers things like clip and merge, so you really edit a movie. And a lot more options for the end result.

Are all the "thumbs downs" for any actual reason? At this point 53 people said thumbs down but there are only 5 comments and they are all positive. Can anyone provide a more critical eye, i'm not really familiar with this kind of software but considering it claims to make videos suitable for PS3 and PSP i'm very interested. I just don't think it makes a whole lot of sense to vote negatively and not provide any feedback.

this is the first time I SEE very few comments. I thank people for not leaving negative comments just because they don't like the type of software i.e. Video converter.
I like better previous GAOTD rippers/converters but this one is not bad, and it is still free.
Thank you guys.

For #4 and others? If you install the nice little free program DVD43 you can ruip any DVD to any format using your onn programme (Nero, Roxio, etc._) DVD43 just resolves the encoding. No action needed just start NERO r Roxio in the normal way, DVD43 works in teh backgrpund.

Installed seemed to run smoth on my dual core rig...encoded 3 minutes of video...result looked good but was horribly out of sync...
#4 claims there are no legal or illegal Dvd rippers online to download!?
I legally downloaded and still use the limited version of FairUse2 which will rip to an extremely great looking Divx/Xvid up to 700MB file and that version is free....and always ALWAYS in sync...
In my opinion..sync issues are result of extremely poor software...

Installs o-k (Remember to copy the code and paste it in when registering it for the full version)
A pop-up box appears after installation with Name and code for registering so don't rush through the process.

The speed of conversion is fairly fast on this, I tried converting suitable for Youtube and all went fine.
Most programs like this are reliant on actually ripping the protected DVD and DVD Ripper Express did'nt throw up any protection errors.

I won't say the usual "Get it because it's free" it's more "Get it because it does what it says on the tin AND does it well!"

Really great program, I have been looking for a working dvd ripper for a long time. You can't get a free one online, even illegally. This is a great program, especially considering it allows you to watch the dvd at the point where it is recording. It isn't that fast really, but it is bearable. Very nice interface, and very easy to use.

THANK YOU GOTD!!!

Installed and running fine on XP.
Limited options in converting DVD to AVI - video 320x240, bitrate 384kps and audio mp3 so quality really only suitable for portable viewing ie Ipods, Zune etc..
A resource hog; converting a DVD slowed my system to a standstill. Converts only while playing the DVD - recording from played video.
Not one for me but for those with portable players may prove useful..
