WinX DVD Ripper is a free software that allows you to rip your favorite DVDs into AVI, FLV, MPEG, MP4, WMV formats that can be played on your PCs and other compatible devices. It is a great way to backup your DVDs. Winx DVD Ripper supports Hyper-Threading Technology which guarentees fast DVD conversion. WinX DVD ripper supports most if not all DVD formats including DVD 5, DVD 9, DVD ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW and supports both PAL and NTSC formats.
It also helps ripping audio and taking screenshots of the DVD.
The free version of Winx DVD Ripper is for personal non-commercial use only. Click here to download WinX DVD Ripper software.
It’s worth mentioning that the Platinum Edition of the software which is not free and costs just $29.95 is fully loaded with various different functionalities and have to say all of them are well worth the money.
Some of the features missing from the free version and worth the cost of the Platinum edition are
More output formats like iPod, iPhone, iPad, PSP, Zune, Mobile Phone (3GP)
1:1 DVD Copy without Quality Loss in less than 5 mins
Support protected and commercial DVDs including CSS protected DVDs, all region (1-6) DVDs
DVDs of the latest copy protection technologies like the titles Transformers 2, The Dark Knight, Star Trek 2009, UP, etc and expect support for the likes of Alice In Wonderland, Avatar, etc when they are released on the DVDs
Multi-Core CPUs support to make full use of the CPUs on the system and make the process faster
Intelligent Analysis & Skip Corrupt Track for smooth ripping of DVDs
Powerful and High Speed Encoding Engine and progressive scan mode for improved quality
To me, the support of iPod, iPhone and PDA formats, Mutli-core CPU utilization and the quality enhancement features stand out. For instance, the option Advanced De-interlace accelerator gives you clearer video if the orignal DVD interleaves video. Similarly, “Intelligent A/V Synchronizer” can fix the problem of Sound being out of sync with the video on the original DVD.
And finally, if there are problems in ripping your DVD, it can switch to Safe mode which takes longer to rip the DVD.
