Can anyone recommend a good DVD to AVI program?
« on: March 23, 2007, 11:57:38 PM »
Please don't provide any that are trial versions, raw DVD rip, or any other type that don't work. Please recommend one that is different from the useless kinds that one finds on google search and cost money

When I once did this I used

- DVD Decrypter (http://www.pctipp.ch...wnloads/dl/24654.asp) to get the DVD contents from DVD to my HD

- AutoGK (http://www.autogk.me.uk/) to get AVI files from those (huge) files

For quality ripping:
http://www.doom9.org...dex.html?/autogk.htm

You will have to perform a raw rip first but I've found the "DVD Decrypter --> AutoGK" method to be the only simple way that gives top notch quality output.

If the above method doesn't suit you, take a look at http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html which is getting immensely popular - even if you don't want it for the DVD ripping purpose it's worth checking out coz it converts pretty much any video format out there, including those found on portable gaming devices & cell phones.

I agree Doom9 is the place to look.

If you can grab a copy of SmartRipper you can rip DVDs to your hard disc and then find a VOD > AVI conversion program. There are lots out there (mostly not free) and the quality varies enormously.

For the raw ripping, I would recommend the free version of DVDFab Decrypter... fast, handles ARccOS, etc.

http://www.erightsoft.com/S6Kg1.html > scroll all down, is a better link, or you may never actually find the download. SUPER © may be The Best, but the web-designer is not, and the servers are the worst (33 KB/S).

I would recommend the following opensource : DrDivx : it's a bit tricky to setup, used to be buggy, but much more configurable than AutoGK.

Sometimes, it also requires to install a (free) AC3 handler (AC3 = Dolby Digital).
