DVD Ripping

Do any of you rip your dvd to your HDD? If so, do you happen to lose any quality in doing so? I was thinking it would be nice to purchase a large HDD and DVD-rom for my pc and watch movies through it...but, I'm unsure if the quality would suck or not. Anyone know?

Thanks

Why would you want to bother ripping your own dvd's to your HD to watch when you could just as easily pop the disc in the player and watch it anyhow?

Save your gb and fill it with lesbian pron, stolen music, stolen videos and urrrr, homework or something...

If you had a DVD-ROM, why would you bother to take the time to rip 4+ gigs of VOB's to your hard drive (which would not produce a quality loss), and watch it that way, when you can pop the DVD into the drive and watch it, withouth any extra effort, time, or loss of hdd space?

Only because we were typing the same stuff at the same time. You just hit reply a few seconds sooner than I did.

Next thing you know you'll be buying a DVD recorder in order to record your 32kbps WMA to DVD with simulated surround sound.

Ripping a DVD means copying its content while removing all the crap such as region protection and macrovision. The quality of the ripped files is identical to that of the DVD.
You only lose quality when transcoding/compressing.

thank you twilightseer

many people like putting their dvds on their hard drive in a "media pc" built by themselves to play in the living room besides trying to find the dvd. you just scan the explorer till you find the movie, double click, and you're there.

Since I just got a DVD drive, I'm reviving this thread cuz I'd also like to know this. However, my question is a bit more specific.

How do I rip the music videos included on some of my DVDs to my HD?

Use DVDDecrypter in Ifo mode. This allows you to see the structure of the DVD. If your video lasts like 3:02, you can easily see where it's located and then you just have to rip it.

Remember that DVD Decryter and other DeCSS based apps are violations of several software patents and laws.

Long live the hero. Ok he didn't do all the work, but he went public. DeDRMS also rocks.

Thanks,` I'll give it a shot.

Does the video have to be exactly 3:02.

Well, since I'm not planning on sharing my videos, that shouldn't be a problem.

I used DVD Decypter's "Decrypt" button to decypt disc 2 of Daredevil to my HD, now what?

I just want a program that will specifically detect only the video I want(no matter what size), and decrypt it to my HD in the format I want (something like what dbPowerAMP does for CDs).

That was not what I meant. My point was that the reproducing, storage, copying of source code and use when it comes to apps like DVDdecrypter might be illegal.

I just saw a chance here to shout "fuck software patents", that's all. Never mind my Open silliness

I didn't have much luck with DVDdecypter, but I found a solution to my "No sound when playing VOBs in Winamp 5.x" problem.

I still used DVD Shrink to convert Title 24 to a VOB on my HD. Then I used a program called YASA VOB to MPEG Converter to convert the VOB to MPEG-2 format. I then double-clicked the file, it started Winamp Video, and it played both the video and the audio.

The entire process took about an hour, and I got a great looking video. I know a lot of you coould just download the video faster cuz ya'll have cable or DSL, but hey, I'm stuck with dial-up, and 1 hour to rip is a shitload better than 4 to download.

Incidentally, Title 24 is "Evanescence - Bring Me To Life" on Daredevil, disc 2.

Now why would I pay $49.95 for a product when I already have two free products that will do what I want:
  • WinDVD, which is included on the CD that came with my DVD drive
  • PowerPlayer II plugin for Winamp

Yep, sure does. However, it does not close when the video is done. That's what I like about the Winamp Video window. I double-click my MPEG, it opens the video, plays it, then closes.
