How to go about using this Tool?

The WinX DVD Ripper setup file consists of just 18.4MB. Download it from here. Install it in the similar manner in which you install any other software. It has got a pretty user friendly Interface due to which you don’t need to keep searching for a particular option that you need to configure. Everything can be found at a single place.

The DVD File can be ripped or converted in 3 quick steps. The highlighed portions in the image [Areas 1,2,3] below depicts the steps involved in ripping or converting a DVD format file using the WinX DVD Ripper Platinum software. Here are the main aspects:

WinX DVD Ripper Interface

Step I

You could use either of the 3 methods to convert your DVD format file to the desired format:

– DVD Disc

– ISO Image

– Folder Containing DVD Files

Step II

Select your video format/device. You can effortlessly copy or rip DVD format to AVI, MP4, MPEG, WMV, MOV, FLV, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, PSP and various other formats.

Step III

Hit the “Start” Button. You’re done!

Other useful features:

  • Tick the “Use High Quality Engine” or “Deinterlacing” for better image quality.
  • The time consumed by ripping process can be cut short by setting the “CPU Core Use” (up to 8 Core) in case you are using multiple CPUs. You can also use “Force A/V Sync” if required.
  • You can opt for the “Safe Mode” option as well which will help you smoothen the conversion process. But you might have to wait a bit longer for the conversion to take place under Safe Mode as it consumes a little more time than the normal mode.
  • Trim the video wherever required by just dragging the slide bar under video preview window or by setting the “Start time” and “End time“.
  • You can also crop the frame size of a video image, remove unwanted area from a video to feature a highlight, or crop DVD video to remove the black curtain bars.

DVD movies these days are quite big. The size exceeds over 20GB at time. In such cases, an ordinary DVD ripper software crashes or doesn’t seem to respond after a while. But WinX DVD Ripper Platinum allows you to smoothly rip protected DVDs [including the ones protected with CSS] without any hassle. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum can also be used efficiently to Backup your protected DVDs as well.

You could either opt for the WinX DVD free dvd ripper or choose the Premium version as well. It would cost you just $45.95. Really worth the every single penny that you spend on it. Also, you will avail the FREE lifetime update to the latest version and FREE lifetime technical support. But question arises on why should you opt for the Platinum version. How are they different? What are the key features present in the Platinum version that is not present in the former one. Lets have a look.

My Personal Experience using WinX DVD Ripper Platinum:

I own a HTC Evo 3D Mobile. So I was wondering if it is possible to convert the movies on the DVD into a format that would be compatible with my phone. All I did was – Inserted My DVDDisc containing the movie [Hindi Movie named Apne]. I Headed over to the HTC section in the navigation bar and browsed for the device that was more or less similar to that of mine. It was wonderful to find that almost all the latest HTC devices were present beforehand as a result of which I just had to search for my device in the Profile Setting. I set the standard ‘Audio Quality’, ‘Resolution’ and ‘Video Quality’ according to my needs and Hit the ‘Start’ Button. The conversion process did not take too long. Roughly about 10-15 minutes. I was satisfied with the Image and the Audio quality of the converted format.

Software Update:

Wondering how to update the software once the latest version is out in the store? Simple. It is more or less similar to that of updating an anti virus software.

The FREE Support Support is via email. I really don’t think you need assistance and support for using this software, but in case you do, you can always send them an email. You are guaranteed a  reply within one business day.
