Q: How do I get the best quality in ripping DVDs to my PC?

Hi,
 
I've tried the method in this YouTube video playlist "Home Theater How-To" to set up ripping my DVD collection to my PC but I'm not sure that it's the best way to do this.
 
I'm looking for the best quality I can get in a DVD / Blu-ray rip.
 
Can anyone recommend a way to get the best quality out of a DVD / Blu-ray rip? I'd like to preserve the 720 / 1080 large formate to play the rip from on my PC to my flat pannel TV.
 
Thanks,
 
John
 
PS One thing to mention about this YouTube video play list, it has hepled me get an increadable improvement in sound quality. I had no idea that my PC could make such beautifal music. Microsoft really is irresposible not including a better codec pack in the default stuff.
 
In fact following the recommendations in this video made me aware that recording my CD collection to my PC was premature since even the sound quality of ripping my CDs to wav is terrible compaird to recording off of a program called "Audials".
 
I made a post here about that.

Preferred Solution: How do I get the best quality in ripping DVDs to my PC?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,

I have a fairly complex ask here. Basically, I have a load of DVDs (Films and box sets) that I want to rip and put on my media server, so I can put the hard copies in the attic and they'll stop cluttering up my house.

However, after trying many, MANY rippers, none of them give a good enough quality. So, I found this forum and asking: Does anyone know of a rip that will give DVD-quality, but without it being an ISO?
My requirements:


I don't care about file size. I've not bought the storage hard drives yet, so thats irrelivant until I do (I can effectively get 16TB on the server with a bit of money spent )
It CANNOT be an ISO file. Ideally, MP4 or AVI but I'm fine with other common formats too. I play the files on my xbox, computer, and three different PC's running XBMC, and those can't play ISO's.
I don't care about bonus features, menus etc. I just want the main feature(s).
It must be the best possible quality, as if I was watching the DVD.
I don't care about the price as long as it isn't ridiculous. My media network has proved incredibly cheap so far, so I still have enough money to spend on things like this.

I know this is possible from when we watched a copy of Iron Man off a friends memory stick. It was absolutely brilliant quality, and when I asked where he got it he told me he torrented it. I found the torrent in question (I don't use them, but wanted to see if the post named the ripping software)... Read more

A:Best possible quality DVD ripping?

Handbrake is cross platform and will rip them for you with the help of VLC. It will compress to .mp4 or .m4v so with that compression you will lose some quality (I'm sure the dvd rip torrent was also compressed to h.264 as well, or xvid). Here is a link that will help you: http://lifehacker.com/5773000/how-to-rip-dvds-with-handbrake

To get the absolute best quality (really unnecessary with h.264) you'd need to get the straight mpeg2 stream. I forget how you do that since most people haven't done that with dvds since divx first came out, but I think you use something to decrypt and then a program like TMPGEnc or maybe VirtualDub. Google Gordian Knot dvd ripping if you want to do the long complex way. But I think you are far better off trying to get a quality to your liking with Handbrake.

I've had many people tell me that when encoding into MP3 format it's a bad idea to "re encode" as it seriously degrades the quality. This doesn't make sense to me, if a song is encoded at say 320kBits and I run it through an audio editor to clean up portions of it then encode it once agian at 320kBits doesn't that mean the compression level has stayed the same? If it is allready compressed to 320kBits why would any more information be removed when "re encoding" at 320kBits as the excess information has already been removed there shouldn't be anything left to take out that would cause any further degradation to take place. Is there someting about the compression process that I'm not understanding or is what I think correct and my friends thoughts wrong?

I was recently reading a thread about problems people were having ripping DVDs using DVD Decrypter and the like. A moderator closed the thread saying that the subject was about stealing movies (commiting illegal acts) and that forum rules do not allow this.

It is NOT Illegal to rip a DVD that you have purchased and own, and make copies for your own personal use. The courts have made the decision that purchasing the DVD is purchasing the license to make copies of your property for your own use ó to make backups so the kids don't destroy the original, to make copies in varying formats for playback on different machines, etc.

Many other things are illegal ó e.g. borrowing someone else's DVD and ripping it to make a copy for yourself, ripping a DVD that you own and then distributing copies (giving or selling), and more; but making copies of a DVD you purchased and own for your own personal use IS LEGAL, so using ripping software is not, in and of itself, committing an illegal act.
 

A:Ripping DVDs using DVDDecrypter and others

The Digital Millennium Act has made it clearly illegal to attempt to thwart any protection scheme. That makes "ripping" DVD's that are protected illegal. The content of the DVD belongs to the owner and they have the ultimate say on who can use it for what (in keeping with regulations). The only thing you own is the plastic the DVD is made of. The contents are someone else's.

A:BSOD While Burning/Ripping DVDs

All the crashdumps are inconclusive, but they show an extremely consistent behavior (all completely identical), which definitely shows a driver bug somewhere. I recommend turning on Driver Verifier. Do not select the following checks: Force Pending I/O Requests, IRP Logging, and Low Resource Sim. Make sure to restart system after you finish setup. If you experience a boot loop afterwards, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 prior to Windows logo and disable DV there. Get the system to crash once or twice afterwards (like by burning a disc), and send us the crashdumps.

I have recently been trying to capture images and rip sounds from DVDs but i have not had much success, i have PowerDVD (I think it is 5) which does not have an image capture function, and normal Print Screen does not work, is there a freeware program that anyone is aware of?

Also, several DVD ripping programs are available free, does anybody know if any of them can just rip the sound to WAV or MP3, as i think this would be a very useful function to have.

Thanks.
:chef: LMoore :chef:
 

A:Ripping Sounds and Images from from DVDs

PowerDVD does have a 'capture frame' function, just hit 'C' when you want to capture. You can specify where it captures the images in PowerDVD settings, I think the default is to clipboard.

As for audio, I think the easiest (or should I say least difficult?) is SmartRipper in its stream processing mode, but it doesn't convert the audio track to WAV or MP3, just copies it, so you need to convert it with another application. See guides at Doom9.

Hi there.

I'm now going to rip my old DVD's - This to me seems the best approach :

On ONE set of HDD's -- will probably need TWO -- use AnyDVD to convert the DVD to an iso identical to the original in every way except de-regionalized and de-crypted so it plays anywhere -- Windows 8 mounts HDD ISO's even if you don't have a DVD drive and VLC will play them. This HDD I'll use as Acrchive .

On another set rip the DVD via HANDBRAKE to mp4 / mkv so I can watch on my mobile / NAS / etc via streaming or even copying to local usb stick or even micro sdHC card in the phone.

Handbrake can rip to very good quality -- so I really don't need the HDD ISO's --it's just me wanting to have a copy of the original.

After I've copied / ripped all the DVD's I'm going to donate them to a charity shop as I won't ever use the old discs any more. (I've about 400 DVD's) - a 2TB drive should be enough for the ISO's - certainly 3TB will be more than enough.

Now my question is Handbrake really good enough for making decent compressed rips or should I use something else.

Cheers
jimbo

A:DVD ripping (Movies - commercial DVDs)

I used to use "DVDFab" to remove anything extra from disks, like languages, extra titles, menus etc. and that made the rest much smaller. I think I used DrDivx to make avi files from so shortened dvd. This one Download VidCoder - MajorGeeks promisses to make Handbrake easier to use. I shudder at Handbrake use.
Legality of it I 'm not sure of but just heard that in UK and some other EU countries they made it completely legal to make backups of MM disks as long as they are not commercially distributed.

If this is not kosher, please let me know, but I see ads everywhere for DVD ripping software that will get by copy protection and rip/burn DVDs. I am a teacher and I like to show the kids video clips from various movies as examples of this or that. Some of the scenes/movies I'd like to show contain profanities or other inappropriate details that I'd like to edit out by the usual splicing or whatnot that any good video creation software does easily. Obviously the problem has been that protected DVDs make this difficult.

All I want is to be able to rip a DVD, then edit out something here and there, mainly in short scenes.

I see lots of ads for ripping/burning software but I'm not sure they'll allow me to edit scenes.

A local photo shop is copying 26 tapes (a mix of VHS and digital tapes) on to DVDís for me. The tapes are 15 years of my daughterís dance recitals. On each two hour long DVD will be 5 to 20 minutes of her dancing in a varying number of segments.

I plan to edit the DVDís down to a smaller set of DVDís with just her routines, so I need to rip the appropriate segment of each DVD for editing and burning. There are neither chapter headings nor other index of her particular performances.

I would like to find software that will let me scan each DVD, see which section I want to rip, and then rip it to .avi format. Some programsí advertisements suggest I can pick a time block to rip, which might work. The easiest way would be to Ďmarkí the beginning and end of the segment I want as I preview it (preferably at higher than real time speed), then rip it.

Control over where the files are stored is a must, being able to change the filename as it is stored would be a great convenience. It has to run on WinXP. I have lots of memory and disk space.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Hello. I'm ripping DVDs so that I can post snippets of scenes to put on Youtube videos within fair dealing laws. I'm trying to rip DVDs with Handbrake and it does create a file with playable videos, and there are no problems with the sound. However the picture quality comes out noticeably degraded. This might be a compression but I'm not sure.

I've tried adjusting the bar of the "Constant Quality -- RF" bar under the video section to increase image quality before downloading and adjusting over relevant variables but to no avail.

What do I need to do to resolve this issue?

I have a Mashita 842s DVD-RAM superdrive in my Toshiba M400 notebook. I am running XP w/SP3. I don't recall whether or not in the past I've tried to play movie dvds on it using such as WinDVD and Windows Media Player 11. However, recently I've had the need to do so. Unfortunately, although data DVDs (both those I've burned myself and software discs) and audio cds can be read without a problem, movie dvds are not recognized as even being in the drive. The lack of recognition includes Windows Explorer, WinDVD and Windows Media Player. Because the other type of discs work fine, I'm assuming this a software or configuration problem.

Hi there
One thing about W10 - a lot of programs I had problems with in the past seem to work perfectly now.

This one works brilliantly for example.

I use MAKEMKV now for ripping DVD's (FREE) -- there is a fee though if you use Blu RAY's but you get 30 days free trial. I don't have Blu Ray's so the free DVD rip is fine for me.

This creates uncompressed (i.e max) quality MKV rips including subtitles (you can optionally not rip the subtitles) in around 12 mins per DVD including de-crypting where necessary. Speed depends on your CPU and speed of your DVD device -- I'm running on a bog standard Sony VAIO laptop (older) laptop with I5 2.33 GHZ CPU and speed is fine for me.

Saves the old routine of ripping first with something like AnyDVD to de-regionalize and de-crypt and then use Handbrake to create mkv / mp4.

With W8 I always had problems with Makemkv -- works perfectly now and so much faster than the two stage ripping process using Handbrake.

(If you want a smaller rip or convert to mp4 you can always use handbrake on the uncompressed mkv file from Makemkv).

Re-ripping a few DVD's now --much better quality !!!!.

whats the best format to rip a big collection of cds to a laptop, without losing sound quality?
 

A:ripping cds

To do the ripping get CDex. Download version 1.51 unless you have Windows 7 then download version 1.70 (Beta 4 2009).

The highest quality sound are WAV files but the problem with them is the files are very large. The most common compressed format is Mp3. They've done listening tests and most people can't tell the difference between WAV and Mp3 at 320 kbps. So I would try Mp3 at 320 kbps CBR and if the files are still too large you could compress them a little more, down to 192 kbps VBR.

Hiya

Do you have a DVD-RW? I'm not sure if copying onto CD's will work, as DVD's hold more data.

If you do have a DVD-RW, could you not carry out the burning as you would do a CD:

Open Nero, navigate to your CD drive, and drag the contents to the left window. Then burn as normal.

Still learning about burning, but others may have more tips to give.

Touchy subject on this board. Depending upon where you live, the legality of ripping a DVD, even for your own use, is debatable. And topics about illegal activities are prohibited.

I have a large collection of Dvd Movies, Music Dvds and Tv series that i own, I would like to rip my movies to Avi and my Music Dvds to copy as vob files to hardrive, and my tv series to copy to avi in seperate episodes.
I would like to know what is the best software out there to do this. It doesnt matter if its free software or software that i need to purchase, just one that will give me the best quality.
It would be a bonus if it ripped and copied Blu-Ray as well, but not essential.
Any help appreciated

Thanks
Cliff

You just have to be careful its not illegal. Try DVD decrypter, DVD fab or handbrake they all work well.

What is the best software for ripping DVD's to your hard drive?
And also what do you think would be the best codec to compress them?

Cheers

Here you go:

http://easydivx.does.it/

If you can't operate this then there is something wrong with you. :monkey:

Apart from downloading it and running it, the only other "task" you will be faced with is having to actually place the DVD disk in your drive

Oh, and about 6 mouse clicks or so. Nothing else to worry about. Its not called EasyDivx for nothing and when you run it you will see why.

EasyDivx represents a great all-in-one solution that you would have to be brain damaged :dead: not to know how to work.


Please bare in mind that this software should be used to make backups of DVDs that you have legitimately purchased and do own, and not for piracy because that's illegal, and people who do it are bad......

Hey,

I have a DVD I bought that my father would like a copy of. I am looking for a good DVD Ripping program the one I used before I can not find anymore. I have looked online and haven't had any luck finding a good one. I was hoping that some one on here would be able to point me in the direction of a good DVD ripper.

Thanks

I just bought a Zen Creative Vision: M and I want to put some DVDs on it. I couldnt figure out how to rip the dvd w/out downloading a bunch of free trial rippers. Is there anyway to do it through windows media or is there a place I can find a free download of Flash DVD Ripper?

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this to, so I apologize in advance if it isn't.

The issue I am having is that when I insert a CD to rip in WMP 11 (I am using Windows XP Pro), WMP is not recogizing the CD/searching for album info (artwork/track listings) on the Internet as it normally does. This used to work fine.
I am wondering if there is an option in WMP I have to select to make this happen.

(The only recent change I have made is that I have downloaded iTunes so I can move music to my new iPhone. WMP 11 is still set as my default media player. I think I may have read somewhere that iTunes is the cause of this, which is why I mentioned it.)

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, as it gets rather cumbersome to have to enter all the album info after ripping my collection.

Thanks

Check in WMP Options, Library tab and make sure "Retrieve additional information from the Internet" is checked.

I'm not a big fan of either WMP or iTunes for music collections. I would use MediaMonkey instead.

Q: Ripping

Evening All
I have run into a problem trying to rip a cd using WMP11
Real player will do it without any problem

Here is the message i get from WMP
Help would be much appreciated
Regards


Windows Media Player cannot rip tracks from the CD correctly because the CD drive settings in Device Manager do not match the CD drive settings in the Player.

I have never before had any problem ripping with WMP.

hey there looks like this post got swept under...My question to you is what are your computers specs? Check this out to see if you computer is up to the task.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...temrequirementsMaybe you have a compatibility issue because WMP is saying something that would suggest the drive i'snt properly configured. Since Real has no issues (right?) maybe you could check here too.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...me.aspx#1830386

Hey all,

I've been browsing the net for a while now, trying to find the best program for ripping DVD's to my PC. I've found a bunch, but there's so many it's hard to figure out which one to use. I don't want to pay $xx for a program just to find out there's some fatal flaw, or a better program.

So I ask all of you, the guru's of computers..

What do you think is the best DVD ripping software available?

A:Dvd Ripping
