The 5 Best Tools for Ripping DVDs and Blu-rays to Your Computer.
Best Tools for Ripping DVDs and Blu-rays to Your Computer: In this article, we will introduce you to a couple of Blu-ray Ripper tools to rip and converts any Blu-ray to MP4, which is a format supported by virtually every media player out there.
WinX DVD Ripper Mark listed is the free version. However, when I download the latest so-called free version from the official site, it actually downloads the trial of the platinum one.
And, as far as I can see, the free version is really limited for the out video formats and it’s unable to handle copy-protected DVDs either.
So, I don’t recommend you guys to try the free version of WinX DVD Ripper.
Instead, the platinum version, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, is more powerful with a lot of output formats and it supports Disney DVDs.
Also, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum says itself to be the fastest DVD ripper as WonderFox does. I see they have the same profile copying DVDs to MPG without re-coding. And it is fast in coping! Worth a try.
2. OpenCloner Ripper 2020
OpenCloner Ripper 2020 is a full-featured ripping and conversion software.
It can rip DVD/Blu-ray/UHD movies to standard video format while removing various copy protections. The latest version has been optimized to support more UHD friendly drives.
Meanwhile, it supports rich built-in configuration presets optimized for your device.
This versatile application can also transcode video files of any encoding into MP4/MKV files, and rip downloaded iTunes movies into MP4 format, removing DRM.
A variety of filters such as denoise, deinterlace, working together with video encoding, will produce excellent images for you even at a low bit rate.
DVDShrink WAS great, but the latest version is Version 188.8.131.52 – 25 July 2004. See! 14 years ago! It is still working well on Windows XP and Windows 7.
But I see users complaining it’s non-compatible with the latest Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10. If you still want to shrink DVDs, I’d like to recommend Leawo DVD Copy or Magic DVD Copier.
4. DVDFab (PC & Mac)
I have to admit that DVDFab is one of the best DVD and Bluray ripper in the whole world because it does great jobs in Bluray and DVD ripping, copying, and creating.
For the DVD ripper, it supports all DVD copy protections like CSS and Region code.
It has nice features because I am always able to rip DVDs with forced subtitles and customized file names.
Also, if you don’t want the commentary track in DVD ripping, it’s easy for DVDFab to turn it on and off.
DVDFab Bluray Ripper is super powerful in Blu-ray ripping and it supports all Blu-ray protections including AACS, Blu-ray region code, etc.
And, it is able to remux Bluray to MKV, MP4, or M2TS with its passthrough profiles, meaning you won’t lose any quality in ripping.
5. AnyDVD HD
AnyDVD HD is recommended by me than AnyDVD since AnyDVD HD can do everything AnyDVD does and it copies Blu-rays as well. RedFox inherits all the features of AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD.
However, AnyDVD or AnyDVD HD is really limited. It just removes the DVD and Bluray copy protections and makes a copy free ISO or folder of the original disc.
And it only works on Windows. If you want an alternative for AnyDVD HD, here it is.
