WinX DVD Ripper is really a good software.To my surprise,it can support Vistal system,but the other ripper software previously I used don't support OS..I have downloaded WinX DVD Ripper to use and some of its function feature impresses me very much.I find that,WinX DVD Ripper has the same funtion as Rip music to DVD I previously used.
the same function feature is as below:
1.support lots of format files conversion
2.support several windows OS
3.the conversion time is less than other conversion tool
4.good use friendly interface
5.very suitable for new and inexperience users
6.high quality of conversion
7.have the function of modifying video and audio parameters and clipping segment

#23 - Well known prob with XP… limited user acct.s don’t work right — worse some software than others, but the fault is XP.

If the problem in the OS is so well known and not going to be fixed, then it is up to the programmer to make their program work with the given limitations. Still a FAIL.

#27 “Does this tool rip an encrypted DVD movie (as 90% of modern DVD’s are encrypted)”

WinX DVD Ripper is easy to convert my commercials movies to videos. I I convert a movie called "Bolt", from Walt Disney. I know that those movies are well protects, but normaly, it run.

Fantastic software!

Doesn't it do well :-)
download no problem, installation no problem, set up no problem, copy no problem - even on a very ancient, very slow, limited memory laptop. Congratulations to GOTD and Digiarty Software.

instruction manual (http://www.winxdvd.com/guide/dvd_ripper_guide.htm) a bit basic but (27) follow the instructions at 23 above and it will do as you would like if quite slowly - about 1 minute in 10 on this pc!! (28) I think that you may need the authoring tool or any other burn software to complete the move. You could wait around a while and see if something appropriate comes up or, alternatively, you could go out and buy. Do bare in mind the licensing regulations you agree to abide by when you purchase your dvds - you will find that many, if not all, these now state that even copies for own use are not permissible.

(21) you might try clicking on the browse button at the side of the output destination, then you could save the file to wherever you like - including to your 'my documents'.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I set it to mpg2, and ntsc, put when I started it, I got both vob & avi files in my folder. And the little time I spent trying it ,the program really seemed very slow, not fast as other users have said . Am I doing something wrong, or is DVD Fab, or DVD43 a better ripper than this as far as user friendly?

The software installs fine on Vista Home Premium. Converted a DVD to .mp4 format fine. I didn't see an option to save the conversion settings into a profile, like Wondershare offers. Also 768 kbps video quality was not an option in the drop down list, but I was able to just type the value in. Output was fine. A nice product, but I think the learning curve will be higher than with Wondershare DVD Ripper. I'll have to play with it some more, I guess.

Installed to Vista 32 Bit and Windows 7 without any issues.

Runs on both without any issues.

Fast processing and decent enough amount of options.

My only problem is getting a decent enough quality for the file sizes I am used to.

So far I'm getting between 2 and 2.5 the file size for the quality that I am used to seeing with much smaller file sizes.

Will continue experimenting to see if there is any way to get what I want.

Overall a nice product that can be used by anybody to produce quality output, albeit at a cost of file size.

Does this tool rip an encrypted DVD movie (as 90% of modern DVD's are encrypted) - or do I have to use another ripper to decrypt it first - hard to find any information on this...
If it doesn't its no more than DVD shrink in disguise.

do I have to have a dvd to make the movie into an mp4 to go on my pda?
I am wondering because all my dvds are in storage, movies as avi files in computer.
I want something that can make my avi files into mp4s in less than an hour.
will this do that?

#19: "I’m confused.. it says it will rip to .vob.. but where is the .vob tab?"

Select mpg2, then the appropriate DVD profile (NTSC or PAL) -- output will be in a VOB file rather than mpg.

I have no idea how WinXDVD Ripper compares to DVDFab etc when it comes to DRM. WinXDVD Ripper cannot copy the entire structure, menus etc from a video DVD disc. What it does do is trans-code & optionally re-size DVD video you select -- all video including trailers etc is listed. The output format is customizable, without presets for various portable devices... AVI gives you a choice of DivX & Xvid with MP3 or AC3 audio, MPEG is limited to mpg2 with AC3 or mp2 audio, MP4 lets you choose std mpeg4 or H264 & aac audio, WMV = wmv1 or 2 plus wmav1 or 2 sound, MOV is limited to mpeg4 & aac, & then you have separately, FLV / MP3 & audio only MP3. You can set the audio Sample Rate, Bit Rate, & volume, but are limited to stereo [while wma & AC3 formats can be multi-channel, you can't encode them that way here]. You can set the video in/out points, trimming the length or duration of your output file, & take a snapshot, and you have the options to have subtitles added permanently [i.e. you can't turn them on/off]. Beside the file format/compression, you can set the video frame rate [i.e. 24/25/29... fps], frame size, & *only* one bit rate -- there is no apparent option for VBR [Variable Bit Rate, used to reduce file sizes]. Under Output Profile, every thing but mpg2 gives you 3 options: "Original Size & Keep Aspect Ratio", "Custom Size & Keep Aspect Ratio", & "Custom Size with Custom Aspect Ratio"... The 1st locks your frame width to the original 720, but on a 16:9 DVD cuts height to 404 (from 480 NTSC) -- the 2nd option keeps this same ratio, but let's you set the frame width (320 X 180 vs. std. 320 X 240) -- only the 3rd option lets you set height & width [the best choice for many (most?) portable players with 4:3 screens]. The MPG2 output format includes options for DVD, SVCD, & VCD.

WinXDVD Ripper performance is overall good in XP Pro SP3 32 -- better than the average performance you'll see with most rippers &/or converters. It seems to try & use more than 1 core, though the total CPU use was still around 25%. It deserves at least a star (or 3) for trans-coding to H264 without AAC audio problems -- something sadly all too rare. The program itself takes up ~19 MB, & other than Start Menu shortcuts leaves Windows pretty much alone. Other than the lack of VBR settings, the only somewhat bad thing I can say is that for some reason I don't really care for the GUI color or design -- surprising since no GUI has ever bothered me... can't really explain it... Sorry.

Alternatives:
Well, if you're after speed & have a compatible card, go for one of the Geforce or ATI utilities that use DX & your card's GPU... WinXDVD Ripper is quick, but the ATI utility is 2 or 3 times faster. For more settings, including VBR, plus device profiles I use an earlier GOTD from Xilisoft. While it doesn't produce video that plays in a whole lot of portable players, Nero Recode going to Nero Digital is both fast & top quality.

Tips:
I use a DVD Recorder, & to convert the files for portable players I use DVD Shrink at 100% quality to copy the DVD with only 1 VOB file to my hard drive... Then I use the ATI Catalyst Control Center (Basic) to trans-code -- it only accepts 1 file (won't merge several), which is why I use the DVD Shrink step. If you have a compatible ATI card, you might also look at AsVideoConv, which gives you more options that the utility from ATI.

After installing, the software forced display of the company web page in MSIE rather than using my default browser (Firefox). It created a destination folder for the output as C:\OutputFolder rather than using something like My Documents, or asking at setup. Things like that concern me -- it makes me wonder what other assumptions are being made that could cause problems later on. Programming 101: hard-coding literals is unacceptable. Otherwise I'm glad to have the rerun as I missed it last time.

Rerun now works well without crashes.

I can confirm working on XP SP3 and Windows 7 RC without a hitch. In fact it is a fast ripper - doing a 1hr 30min dvd in 30mins. (avi size 1gb) Output quality is very good on default settings.
Also works as a portable app from a flash drive.

Highly recommended! Thanks GAOTD and WinX!

FAIL.

Installed on WinXP Home as Admin. It set the permissions to the files to Admin only and so the User accounts cannot write to them. When you try to change options OR EXIT the program, it fails and gives an error "Cannot write to Option.ini"

Nice try on the redo, but maybe they should go back for a third attempt.

Hi Thanks for the ReRun! I downloaded the first one a few days ago. It installed fine but when I selected the dvd and clicked start to rip it I got a windows error message saying that "This program has stopped working and windows is looking for a solution to the problem" Then I had to close hte program. My OS is Windows Vista Home Basic SP2. Does anyone know what went wrong? The ReRun seems to be working fine. Thanks anyway GAOTD!

I just opened it up. And its quite pleasing in appearance.
The interface is simple to navagigate and use.
Many more options than you expect, and everything can be seen and used from the main menu.
I burned an ISO file very quickly. And It booted right up to Windows 7.
Anyone need an extra copy? lol
I like it.
I give it a thumbs up.

I missed the WinX DVD Ripper a few days ago, now I get it, thanks GAOTD. Download and install without any problem on my windows vista. But it doesn’t supports DVD ISO file, I ripped some DVD movie with DVD Shrink, and now I want to convert the DVD ISO to AVI video, I used to do the same job with this DVD Converter Pro, it works pretty well. Anyone know how to fix the problem?

This software is better than most previously offered DVD rippers because it’s a lot faster and the ripped files are more compact. For example, using a previous giveaway, Wondershare DVD Ripper, the ripped file took 25 minutes and was 4.3 GB. This time, it only took 15 minutes and the file was compressed to 2.5 GB without any noticeable quality downgrading. This giveaway is definetly worth the download, especially from such a trusted Developer. Previously offered WINX DVD author was of extremely good quality, too
