  • The Last DVD and Blu-Ray Ripping Guide You'll Ever Need

    Really good and in depth writeup by MaximumPC for those of us that like to back up our movies.

    The Last DVD and Blu-Ray Ripping Guide You'll Ever Need

    Copying and transcoding the discís video into more efficient formats involves math an order of magnitude scarier than whatís required to rip audio CDs. A machine that will rip the latest Miley Cyrus CD in mere moments could take hours to extract and convert your copy of Alien vs. Predator to an iPod-friendly format. But with the right software, a quad-core-equipped PC, and a little know-how, you can cut your disc-rip time from hours to 30 minutes. Plenty of tricks and traps still await first-time rippers, but weíll show you the basics and then walk you through some of the most valuable power-user ripping secrets.

        Here is an answer to a question a lot of people have:

        I want to watch a movie I have ripped (I use SlySoft AnyDVD). I donít know how to get the movie to run in one piece. I have to play the movie in sections. I have Nero 7 and PowerDVD but it happens the same way with either.

            WinX DVD Author would normally set you back $30, Ripper $25, but both are free downloads during October, Windows only. (They even support Windows 7 32- and 64-bit).

                    Maximum PC just posted one of the best how to guides for Handbreak I have seen

                    The Power User's Guide to Video Encoding with Handbrake

                    Very worth a skim, even if you don't rip often so at least you can remember what it can do when you do need to.

                      This is pretty cool news:

                      Handbreak can be kind of confusing, and anything that makes it easier is welcome.

                            It should be noted that handbreak does not work with blu-ray discs. It also should be noted that the original article cited does not address blu-ray ripping at all.
