Sponsor: Rip Your DVDs Using Hardware Acceleration with WinX DVD Ripper
The world has gone digital, and that means it’s time to convert your DVD library. But if you have a stack of DVDs collecting dust, how do you go about converting them into digital files that you can play on your Mac, PC, iPhone, or tablet? Say hello to WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, an all-in-one solution for ripping, optimizing, and converting your DVDs.
WinX DVD Ripper takes the guesswork out of DVD ripping. The app features an easy to use interface that helps you pick the right settings for your devices. Just insert your DVD into your Mac or PC’s optical drive, choose your output format, and click Run. The app supports DVDs of all types, from home movies, to those unique “99-title” DVDs, to the latest hot releases. You can also rip music DVDs directly to audio files for easy listening.
Users have the choice to copy just the main film itself, or to make complete rips of the film and any bonus features that may be on the disc. You can fine-tune your preferences to include the full surround sound track or just a stereo track for better compatibility with some devices, and crop letterboxed movies to ensure optimal playback on your widescreen devices. You also have the choice to include any or all of the film’s subtitle tracks. And with more than 350 built-in presets, you’ll end up with a video that works perfectly in your favorite devices and apps, including the iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox One, PS4, smart TVs, Plex Media Player, and more.
But the best feature of WinX DVD Ripper may be its built-in support for level-3 hardware acceleration. Ripping and encoding video from DVDs can take a long time depending on the speed of your computer’s processor. With hardware acceleration, the app uses the untapped power of your integrated or discrete graphics card to significantly speed up the process, especially if you have an older computer. WinX DVD Ripper supports Intel Quick Sync Video as well as recent NVIDIA GPUs, so if you have either of those in your system, you’ll see speed improvements of at least 50 percent when encoding your ripped DVDs!
Other WinX DVD Ripper features include a high quality “Yadif” de-interlacing engine for your interlaced DVDs, support for commercial DVDs from all regions, and the ability to create lossless backups of your DVDs to either a DVD folder structure, a handy ISO image, or the original MPEG-2 file. And if you’re a power user who doesn’t need presets, you can always access the full suite of ripping and encoding options to tune the process to your liking, including options such as bitrate, audio format, frame rate, and aspect ratio.
WinX DVD Ripper is a great all-in-one solution for ripping your DVDs quickly and easily.
