The online streaming service has become mainstream over the past few years. The old fashioned DVD disc is eclipsed by this dominant multimedia medium. However, this does not mean that the DVD disc is completely replaced by an online streaming service. To be more specific, the DVD market position has shifted from mainstream to fringe.

What happens will surely happen. It’s the turn of the DVD. Currently, with rising inflationary pressure, some, if not all, users are choosing to cut unnecessary entertainment costs. Among them, the subscription to the online streaming service pays the price. They terminate subscriptions to redundant services, register only one service, or even unsubscribe all services to reduce expenses. Instead, they’re reverting to the old-fashioned but economical mode of entertainment – the DVD.

The DVD is good but the downside is as clear as it gets. Fabulous films are trapped on the plastic disc. You can’t watch DVD movies or TV shows anywhere anytime unless you digitize the DVD collection to modern digital format MP4 MOV H264 etc. This is where the DVD ripper comes in.

WinX DVD Ripper can scan DVD to MP4, MOV, AVI, VOB, MKV, etc. modern formats playable on any iPhone iPad, Android, Windows, Mac or smart TV without DVD player or DVD player. One of the greatest talents of this DVD ripper is the ability to remove any protection from the DVD disc. So any of your DVD discs can be detected and scanned successfully, regardless of homemade DVDs, damaged/unreadable DVDs, 99 title DVDs, bad sector DVDs, workout DVDs/ AV.

WinX also performs extremely well in DVD ripping speed. Its developer team knows how painful it is to spend forever ripping a DVD disc. Thus, they constantly improve DVD converting speed and apply advanced GPU hardware acceleration to elevate DVD scanning speed up to 47X faster in real time and 5X faster than its competitor. Thus, a full DVD disc can be ripped smoothly in 5 minutes! You can have a free trial here.

How to use WinX DVD Ripper to digitize your DVD collection?

First of all, WinX DVD Ripper does not advocate ripping copy-protected DVDs for commercial purposes and suggests referring to DVD copyright laws in your country before doing so.

Step 1. Download and install WinX DVD Ripper.

The app is available on Windows 10/11/8.1/8/7. Free download and follow the installation instructions to install it on your Windows PC. Then check if your computer has the built-in DVD drive. Otherwise, try an external DVD drive instead.

Step 2. Load the DVD disc.

Load the DVD disc by clicking the DVD Disc button. Meanwhile, it also supports ISO image and Video_TS folder as input format.

Step 3. Choose MP4 as output format.

If you want to play DVD movies anywhere and anytime, it is best to convert DVD to MP4 digital format.

Choose MP4 (H264) as the resulting format in the output profile popup window.

  • To watch a DVD on any device/platform: Go to General profiles and choose MP4 Video as the output format.
  • To enjoy DVD content on the go: Take iPhone 13 Pro as an example, go to Apple Device and click iPhone Video, then choose iPhone 13/Pro/Max (H.264). The same steps can be applied to rip DVD movie on PS4, PS5, Xbox, iPad, Android device, etc.
  • For a 1:1 backup of a DVD to a computer: Go to the DVD backup profile and click on the DVD backup option. You will be greeted with 4 copy modes (copy main title content, copy full title, clone DVD to ISO image, clone DVD to folder). Choose a mode based on your needs.

Step 4. Adjust DVD settings.

Unlike DVD backup, scanning DVD to MP4 allows you to adjust audio and video settings. Just click the gear-shaped Settings button and you can upscale the DVD resolution from 480p to 720p HD, change the frame rate, aspect ratio or bitrate, or adjust the audio settings. Assuming you don’t need to adjust the settings, skip this step.

Optionally, basic video editing features can be realized in this DVD ripping software, such as removing warning clip from FBI DVD, trimming wordy intro part of movie, cropping the video image size to fit different screens, adding external subtitles for your foreign DVD, etc.

Also, pay your attention to the lower right corner of the main screen, where you can see GPU hardware accelerator automatically checked (if your computer also supports GPU hardware acceleration), or manually enable High Engine options quality and Safe Mode to ensure smooth DVD ripping without quality degradation.

Step 5. Start scanning the DVD disc.

Press the RUN button to enable ripping DVD to MP4 after selecting a destination folder to save the output MP4 file. This process won’t take much time and when finished, you can see the ripped DVD in the output folder.
