Only a tiny percentage of people still use DVDs but that’s not to say it’s no longer relevant. Movies have gone digital and lots of us own movies on iTunes and similar online services. Again, access to streaming services Netflix, Hulu, Prime video and the rest of them have made life easier. However, companies like Disney and Netflix still sell DVDs and this is proof that the DVD is still very much alive. There are several programs that rip to DVD to MP4 with ease. And for those who want to watch their movies on the go, a DVD converter that transfers these movies to their mobile devices is all that’s needed.
Introducing DVDFab DVD Ripper
DVDs are known to be fragile, this is why it’s important to have a software that’s capable of duplicating and backing them up. I’ve had some experience with DVD rippers and I have a good idea of what to expect from one. Over the last few days, I’ve played around with DVDFab DVD Ripper and it didn’t disappoint.
When I installed this program and launched it for the first time, I was greeted with a screen that notified me that I was supposed to be using the 64-bit version for faster conversion and compression using CUDA and IQS-based 4K hardware acceleration.
I did this and launching the 64-bit version showed the skin selector which is a cool feature. There are about five skins to choose from and I went with one.
Features worth mentioning
Exploring this program, I was glad to see certain features one would expect them to repackage as a new software entirely and sell separately.
Rip DVD to different formats
Well, this was all I was expecting the software to do but it actually does more. DVDFab DVD Ripper rips to DVD to MP4 with ease. However, it’s also a DVD converter that puts lots of options in your hand when it comes to choosing an output format. Whether your preferred format is MKV, WMV, AVI, FLV or something else entirely, there’s a chance this software supports it.
Instead of worrying about which format is suitable for your device, you can as well select your device from the list and the DVD will be converted to a suitable format playable on your device.
This is different from ripping as this mode lets you copy the entire DVD to a new disc or to an ISO image file. This is particularly useful if you intend to back up your old DVD to a new disc.
You can also merge multiple DVDs into one single DVD using this program. In addition, converting UHD to Blu-ray is possible with DVDFab DVD Ripper.
With DVDFab DVD Ripper, you don’t need to spend another dollar on a video converter software. This program comes packed with video converter that works really great. the hardware acceleration feature ensures super-fast conversion and compression on supported hardware.
If you have existing movies downloaded from the internet, you might want to create a DVD or Blu-ray disc using those existing videos. DVDFab DVD Ripper lets you do this.
There are other features like BDInfo which I don’t see myself using that much. This creates a report on loaded Blu-ray movie. For playback issues with Blu-ray, BDFix is an inbuilt feature meant to fix this.
There’s also a YouTube downloader feature which, for some strange reasons, is only available on the 32-bit version of the software. This feature lets you download YouTube videos and convert to MP4.
If you have a mobile phone, you can as well download the mobile app (DVDFab Remote) that lets you monitor the progress of queued tasks.
Before you buy this program, you might want to download the free version which lets you use it for 30 days. You have access to all the features and the only gripe you might have is the watermark appearing on your videos.
DVDFab ‘s basic license costs $54.9 which looks steep at first. But considering the number of extra features that comes with the program, the price to pay might be worth it.
