Whenever you require an easy-to-use, fast, and efficient tool to transform your DVD videos into files that your portable device may carry and play back, MacX DVD Ripper Pro for Windows is an interesting option to consider. With this attractive tool you can also back up and rip DVD discs to your PC, keeping its original quality, as well as all the audio, video, and subtitle streams. Its clear list of output profiles will help you select the right codec for your portable device.
Designed to rip or back up one movie at a time, you may miss the possibility of converting various files in one go. When using a DVD disc as source, this limitation is perfectly understandable, but not so much when these are ISO images or DVD folders that you are using for the input. This minor flaw doesn’t detract from the fact that this DVD ripping tool can be enjoyed by all types of users, producing excellent results in no time. However, let’s not forget that this is not the standard video conversion tool, but a utility to make lossless copies and high quality rips of your favorite DVD movies. In this case, “quality over quantity” could well be the motto for this tool.
As said, you can select a DVD disc, a DVD folder, or an ISO image file as the source, and define the desired output by selecting any of the multiple profiles provided. They come neatly organized by device, covering all the most widely used brands, such as Apple, Sony, or Microsoft. Alternatively, you can select any of the profiles devised for specific sites, such as YouTube, Facebook, or Vimeo.
The DVD Backup option will let you make lossless rips of the entire film – complete with all the associated streams – or select the main movie and the audio, video, and subtitle streams of your choice. MacX DVD Ripper Pro for Windows is regularly updated with the algorithms required to get rid of any copy protection present on your original discs, allowing you to make lawful copies of your movies in a straightforward and seamless way. Finally, you also have the possibility of extracting any of the audio tracks available on the disc, ISO file, or folder, and save it as a standalone MP3, AC3, or AAC audio track.
The program comes with a useful video player where you can preview the movie selected, as well as some basic editing tools to crop, expand, trim, add a new subtitle track, and adjust the volume level of your converted video.
Together with quality, processing speed is the program’s other main priority. Thus, you can make use of its “High Quality Engine”, its deinterlacing capabilities, the program’s Safe Mode for “problematic” ripping processes, and the possibility of selecting the number of CPU cores to be used during the ripping, copying, or conversion process. Its NVIDIA CUDA support clearly contributes to the overall high-speed processing tasks.
All in all, this simple yet powerful DVD ripping tool is an excellent choice for anyone needing to make fast and reliable backup copies as well as small-sized video files of their DVD collection. Its good level of flexibility and customization provides you with all the options you need to enjoy your movie collection in any of your favorite devices.
