DVD ripper

Postby ksl » Tue, 03 Nov 2009 9:18 pm

I need to edit a 20 minute DVD which was sent to me from our supplier of vinegars. So i only need a DVD ripper for a one off job, what is recommended in the freeware these days. Can a ripper delete and add frames, or will i need other software too?

yeah but handbrake just converts the dvd to an avi or mkv file. You can't edit the video with it can you?

I use it on the mac to transfer my dvd's onto the computer for watching. Am not sure what you can use to edit the video on a pc. I guess on the mac I'd use imovie. Never really played around with it that much.

Don't pc's come with video editing software? I thought they did.

Best thing to do is go to download.com and see what's on there. There's shareware and freeware so worth a look.
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.

That must be Muvee, that i have been using, limited service must purchase full service, then it saves in its on file format, so maybe difficult to covert. Windows media couldn't play it. Only the Muvee playback. Thanks guys I'll find something.

for the rip use AUto Gordian Knot
http://www.autogk.me.uk/

Loads of tutorials and support on the home page.

Once you have the avi file then use virtual dub
http://www.virtualdub.org/

The problem with movie maker and most vid edit is they re-compress the video and everytime that occurs there's a quality reduction.
Virtual dub will let you snip an avi in direct stream mode ( as long as you snip between key frames) without any re compression.

Both the above tools are free and work a treat

Good luck

DVD Decrpter, Handbrake or Moyea DVD Ripper.
You can choose any of them.
Google it via Google.

Best regards.

DVD Decrypter is a bit dated now, but is ok if a dvd has low level of protections on it

Haven't heard of the other two.

The best by far ripper I have used is DVD Fab HD decrypter (freeware). Most DVD's I've been able to rip to my hard disk with this software. The only DVD I couldn't copy to hard disk so far was the pixar movie UP.

I don't know much about editing dvd's but I'm certain you can get info on the doom9 forum about which software can be used for this.
