Aimersoft DVD Ripper

aimersoft dvd ripper - intro

Aimersoft DVD Ripper is an outstanding product to backup and/or rip DVDs to various formats, including support for a multitude of different devices. And the best part, it is all so very simple, even for the most inexperienced user.

Step 1) Place a DVD into the optical drive and click on the “Load DVD” button (I chose a bought DVD with a run time of just under 2 hours):

Step 2) Select one of the preset profiles or a common format from the multitude of options (I chose the iPad preset)

Step 3) Adjusting settings – is purely optional. Presets are designed for optimum results and less experienced users can skip this step. Advanced users may like to take advantage of the options available here though via clicking on the ‘Settings’ button.

Step 4) Click the Start button – and Aimersoft DVD Ripper does its thing.

Time to completion for this operation took 46 minutes which, considering it required a complete re-encode from VOB (weighing in at around 6GB) to just 1.64GB MP4, is pretty darn slick. I’m happy to report that the output file played perfectly on the wife’s iPad with excellent quality and all in perfect sync.

Aimersoft DVD Ripper also provides a number of very useful editing features, including; Trim, Merge, Personalized Watermarking, Special Effects, and support for adding Subtitles.

  1. I tried open source solutions for Windows 7 (Handbrake) and Fedora 17 Linux ( DVD::Rip, Handbrake, AcidRip ). DVD::Rip nearly did the job, but I ran into troubles with libdvscss. Anyway – they all ended up in the rubbish bin. Ended up buying Aimersoft DVD Ripper for Windows 7 – and I’m VERY pleased.

  2. G’Day,

    Thanks to Jim, Aimersoft and DCT , now I can get back to ripping my collection.
