    W10 and ripping DVD's / Blu Ray's

    Hi there
    One thing about W10 - a lot of programs I had problems with in the past seem to work perfectly now.

    This one works brilliantly for example.

    I use MAKEMKV now for ripping DVD's (FREE) -- there is a fee though if you use Blu RAY's but you get 30 days free trial. I don't have Blu Ray's so the free DVD rip is fine for me.

    This creates uncompressed (i.e max) quality MKV rips including subtitles (you can optionally not rip the subtitles) in around 12 mins per DVD including de-crypting where necessary. Speed depends on your CPU and speed of your DVD device -- I'm running on a bog standard Sony VAIO laptop (older) laptop with I5 2.33 GHZ CPU and speed is fine for me.

    Saves the old routine of ripping first with something like AnyDVD to de-regionalize and de-crypt and then use Handbrake to create mkv / mp4.

    With W8 I always had problems with Makemkv -- works perfectly now and so much faster than the two stage ripping process using Handbrake.

    (If you want a smaller rip or convert to mp4 you can always use handbrake on the uncompressed mkv file from Makemkv).

    Re-ripping a few DVD's now --much better quality !!!!.

    Right now I am using software that I paid for, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. I like it, but would MAKEMKV be better?

    I would say it depends on how you view your rips

    I use WinX DVD, mainly because it does it all and gives you an MP4 file which is compatible with virtually everything
    MakeMKV converts the files in MPEG2 format, which might not be compatible with your devices

    Not a great issue, as i use Plex as my media server so it transcodes things into formats that are playable, but any MP4 i have ripped with WinXDVD will playback without any transcoding

    I've been using DVDfab HD Decrypter. Seems to work well for me. Then I use Handbrake for .mp4 files or DVD Shrink to make DVDs, depending on what I want to do with my copy. I rarely use DVDs anymore, so pretty much everything I rip is to a .mp4 file for storage on my NAS and playback on my HTPC.

Hi there To any DVD rippers -- standard DVD's not Blu Ray's. I'm converting my huge mass of DVD's into MKV files to store on HDD and then give the physical DVD's away to the local charity shop -- I've got around 1000 collected over the years. ...
