    Depends what you're trying to rip the DVD to.

    You're probably talking about Windows in which case I can't help you but just in case you're talking about OSX then Handbrake would be my top recommendation and after that MacTheRipper.

    sorry guys, yeah windows, basically looking to rip all my telly series' onto my external hard drive which I can then plug into the xbox and watch on telly. of course I know I could just put the DVD in but it would be nice to change between programs at the press of a few buttons without loading screens and being told that video piracy is directly funding terrorism etc

    Handbrake doesn't do the ripping for you in Windows. It's pretty decent converter, though.

    You can install a tiny plug-in for Handbreak that allows it to rip as well, very, very useful, as it makes it one process, or dvd shrink is ace, but you then need HB to re-code.

    Posting delay FAIL - like Chopsen says - that's the baby

    CloneDVD used in tandem with AnyDVD is unbeatable IMO.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    Just a note for Chopsen, Handbrake doesn't appear to be available for Linux now.

    How would one go about using DVD43 with Handbrake in windows?

    Yes, although the peice of shit can't play anything with more that 2 audio channels.

    If you use the Universal preset, it's work on everything.

    you just run it in the background and removes encryption on the fly, in theory. It makes all your DVDs appear unprotected to any other piece of software you have running.

    Also, FFS re the linux thing. That's the second piece of software that I like using that the new version of GNOME has ruined for me (the other one being SkyChart 3). Bollocks to this, I'm going back to windows. At least there everything doesn't stop working every 6 months....

    You install OSX as an alternative, it's pretty easy to do.

    Handbrake is all you need as well on Windows, excellent piece of software and I am glad they dumped AVI.

    for Windows ripping, DVDfab is probably best. It's not cheap (aroudn 80 for a lifetime subscription), but depends on how much you value your DVD collection.

    DVD Decrypter for rips, DVD43 on your toolbar and Handbrake for encoding. Handbrake scales very well too, if you've got plenty of cores.

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    Just been lent some very, very, very rare, high quality DVD's of Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle but have to give them back next week.

    So what DVD ripper would be best for windows to just keep a copy of the films on my hard drive for now?
  • Deleted user 15 September 2010 13:08:21
    Handbrake probably.

    MakeMKV is good if you're not bothered about keeping all the menus etc.

    DVDFab HD Decrypter is free to just rip DVDs to your hard drive.

    Cheers, will give all of those a go. Tried Handbrake a few months ago and never seemed to work out too well, but think I might have been a bit confused by the amount of options available.

    I always found http://fairusewizard.com/ to be really good. A little complicated to use, but rips pretty much anything and turns it into MP4 etc.
