A DVD Ripper is a software application which is used to copy the content of a copyrighted DVD onto a hard disk. Here in this article we are going to discuss about the top 3 DVD ripper softwares available in the market. Have a look:


1.  DVDFab DVD Ripper

DVDFab DVD ripper is on the top of the list because of its awesome features and the ease to use it. They provide 30 days free trial and you can purchase a full version with a really easy checkout process.

The software is capable to rip any video or movie files on a DVD to the hard disk. It gives many customization options to user while doing the process, so that user can have control over all the output parameters easily. With improvement and increasing the usage of hardware like NVIDIA CUDA, QuickSync, and utilizing multi-core in CPUs, it is capable to executing the request really fast. This makes it the best ripper in the software industry.

The process to install and use is very simple. Installation can be done easily by following the steps in installer. To use it to rip DVD, you only need to load the source DVD and choose the output file format and then you can leave the rest to itself.

You can also set some custom settings to it, like resolution, codec type, etc. In next step you need to just locate the file and click on the START button to move on the things.

It also gives you option to do any specific thing like shutdown computer after the process is done etc, if you want to leave the process.

The software is really lightweight and can easily run on 512MB of RAM, 20 GB HDD, a DVD R/W, and a n internet connection to register the software copy for trial or full version. It is available in multiple languages, so you can have all functionality in your language.

This is best software in its kind available for trial and full version at a very affordable price. And it is available for Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Give it a try folks!


2. Aimersoft DVD Ripper

Aimersoft DVD ripper is our second choice when we go for a DVD ripper software. The reason behind it is mainly the cost factor, that it is cheaper than many others, but also lacks some primary features even in the full version.

This software enables you to rip files from your DVD to any format which can be played on a mobile device or a gaming console. The cons of this software includes, that it cannot direct ripping of raw dvd files in ISO or the video_TS folder.

It is also an easy to use software, and also give options for output customisations. But the major problem is that it is not optimizing the performance based on the hardware available. Also, the codec support is low. Installation is pretty simple, but as the trial version is not available, so you need to purchase it to try it. Usage of the application is simple and with very minimal options, which makes it a good choice for newbies, but if you are a tech savvy it doesn't offer you options to customize the output.

It is like a bet you place on purchasing the software that it meets all your needs or not. Still it is worth to give a try if all you need is to convert files from DVD into any compatible media format, to be used on any devices.


3. WinX DVD Ripper

It is an efficient software in its class and the benefit is, that it has got a very huge library of customised output files. It lacks on a very important aspect that it cannot add watermarks to the rips and also does not support contrast and brightness adjustments. Also, as a major user base comments that it is the most easy to use software in the market.

The second problem is, that it doesn't have a trial period available, so you can check for features before making a purchase. The installation and use is pretty simple like others, but it gives very limited options for customizations in output file.

It is worth a try but the overall ratings for this software are medium, few people like it and few do not. The interface of the software will also remind you of the old softwares that come bundled with Windows 98. It supports conversion to popular video formats like AVI or MP4. It does not utilize the hardware power in full and also bit laggy when large files are to be processed.

We hope that our piece of information will help you in deciding the software you can go with. We have tried to cover every aspect and highlight only those points which are necessary for making a decision.  Feel free to put your comments and suggestions about the article, so that in future we can improve things a lot. Have a good day!


4. Wonderfox DVD Ripper

It is indeed marketed as free best DVD ripper software, and also the fastest amongst the 5 pieces of tools in its niche. So, it is certainly something to take a good look at. It seems to be faster in the order of ripping DVDs in 5 to 10 minutes while preserving the quality as is, that is, 1:1. The marketing strategy is also based on a 3 point UI, where you load the DVD, select a custom setting, and click on convert, and that's it. This is pretty straightforward and seems to have a straight workflow which might help it run faster than a software with 1000 lines of code more than this one.

Also, among DVD ripper software, there is a trend to leverage the hardware such as the CPU, the GPU or both in some cases. It is also capable of ripping protected videos, which is a sure shot selling point in terms of popularity. It seems to contain the break for CSS, DRM, RCE, Sony's proprietary ARccOS as well as Disney's protection standards. Thus, you can be sure of ripping any DVD, yes, just about any DVD you can pick off the shelf of any store. However, there is also a point about repairing your scratched DVDs, which is not completely feasible since it is a hardware issue, but probably it tries to imply that it can rip DVDs with scratches as well.


5. Any DVD Ripper

Another quite small tool is Any DVD Ripper which provides a small set of toggle buttons to browse your DVD, select the title and rip it off for playback. It is supposed to be compatible with just about any format. The pros include multi-threaded support, which basically means that it can leverage the use of multi-core processors like the Intel's i3, i5 that come with 4 threads each so that the task can be divided between them and the whole thing can be done much faster. This is also one of the earliest implementations of improving speed, compared to the GPU or CPU+GPU as being the standard nowadays. 

It also comes with a fully fledged video editor, meaning the editing of menus, chapters, trimming and cutting parts and preparing a video file just as you want it for storage, and, of course, for playback on any device of your choice. It seems that the processes are an average of 30 times faster than any poorly written software on the web. The claims by Any DVD Ripper also seem promising for a good testing phase and among one of the Best DVD Rippers. It also has a free version, but the features are limited. You can try out and then decide whether to buy the paid version.

The best DVD ripping software that can quickly rip and convert a DVD to any mainstream audio & video formats for playback on PCs, portable and mobile devices.
