DVD Ripping

I am looking at copying some movies of DVD's to my computer all I want on my computer is The movie and none of the special features. I was wondering if there is a program that is easy to use so all I have to do is put the DVD in and tell it to copy the movie to my computer is there such a program and if so what is it and where could I get it. I know of Gordian Knot and DVD decrypter but I can't really get my head around it as all I can get it to do is get the picture with no sound. Any help woith this will be greatly appreciated.

  1. get dvd shrink it allows you to select the chapters you want and the languages and so forth.

  2. I have tried using DVD Shrink but is there anyway of making it smaller than 2Gig as I want to make them about 700Mb

  3. Sounds like you want to burn them onto a regular cd.

  4. If you want to make them 700mb you arn't going to just copy them off the cd. You are going to need to encode them into a diff format like .avi using a divx, xvid, etc codec/encoder. I haven't dabbled much in that but I'm sure google could tell you all about it :)

  6. What kind of quality do you get recoding a nearly five gig movie down to 700 MB?

    ....WW (5.0)
  7. rip from dvd then convert to say avi i can get pretty decent quality, kinda like watching a vhs tape.

    sometimes though the dubbing will be slightly off.

  8. I think it is a little better than vhs. Most divx movies you download are dvd rips, you have to have seen one of those at one point or another.

  9. But with DVD-Rs at around 50 cents a piece or less it seems silly to not get the better quality when <i>backing up</i> movies...

  10. Yea I know, I haven't used divx in a long time. DVD is just the way to go. I accept nothing less than DD EX or DTS ES, lol.

  12. for that size, as said above, you will need to convert to a different file format. I'd reccomend Xvid, kinda the freeware version of DivX. It's slightly better too. I have **cough** downloaded **cough** some movies which was in Xvid format and the quality is great. The file sizes were about 700-800Mb

  15. so lemme get this straight. You need a ripper to get the movie off teh dvd, and then you need a codec to change the format of the movie file?

    Curiosity was framed. Stupidity killed the cat.
    (i know it has nothing to do with comps, but i think its funny ^^")
  16. guy what your saying is making no sense, like someone stated up above... you can buy 100 blank DVDs for aronud 35$ and you can get what like 100 blank cd-rs for like 23$ or so maybe alittle less.. the point is this, You wasting a [-peep-] load of time to burn to a crappy quality disc, when you can burn the entire movie in about 50 minutes and have exact DVD quality. why the hell would you wanna take around freggin 2 hrs and then through all that time watch a quality thats just as [-peep-] as VHS? lol

    idn man you might wanna rethink what your saying. Also you obviously have a dvd BURNER correct? i mean that is around 50$ at newegg..

    i think you should just reformatt your thinking alittle and i think the best solution is obvious here.
