I just use MakeMKV for mine.  How does this compare, or does anyone know?

Sorry in advance for hijacking this thread with some slight off-topic-ness.

I just use MakeMKV for mine.  How does this compare, or does anyone know?

This one? http://www.makemkv.com

I've been using a combination of DVDDecrypter and Handbrake for the past several years to rip my DVDs.

. . . And now that I went and grabbed the link for the DVD Decrypter website, I see that it links to MakeMKV as a way to rip straight from disc to MKV. Thanks for making me aware of it.

Yup... that's the one.  I generally remove everything I don't need and rip the DVDs, and watch them all over the house on the WD TV Live Hubs.  I really liked that they had inbuilt hard drives.  Haven't found anything to replace them, but thankfully haven't had to look hard as they're still going...

For DVDs I still use RipIt4Me, the first program able to walk through the IFO files IIRC, which meant you could rip the whole disc, movie + menu, or just the movie and it would remove all the non-referenced VOBs, chapters, menu deadends, and whatever else they tried to do to obfuscate ripping.

Here's irony for you:

Version 1.7.1.0 (22 March 2007)

* Added an automatic updater. When a new version is available, RipIt4Me offers to download and install it for you. [...] This of course, will only work the next time we have an update.

There was never another update after that.

It did its job too well, the MPAA had a Cease and Desist issued against him.

Yeah, I read about that. Still, the cat was out of the bag by then. Bother!
