Video DVDs are excellent when it comes to getting high quality digital movies. But any damage to the DVD disc means that you will no longer be able to watch the movie that you paid for. This is why many people prefer to keep a backup of the video DVD discs by converting them to digital and storing them in their computer. For this purpose, there are a number of apps created that are called DVD rippers.

However most of these applications are sluggish and convert videos at a very slow rate. Furthermore, most of these apps have a very limited support for various input formats and output formats and you are restricted to very few choices. A refreshing exception to these rules is the desktop application called WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a user-friendly desktop application for Windows computers as well as Mac computers. The application helps convert your DVD movies into other digital video formats. This helps create a backup of your DVD video and it also makes it easier for you to transfer the video because there is now one file to share instead of multiple folders and files.

To get started, you must select the input source from the top left of the application. You can choose a DVD disc that you inserted; you can also choose a DVD ISO image if you have one. Any DVD folders that are located locally or on a disc can also be selected as input.



Next, you select the output format. You will find a wide variety of output options. The formats can be chosen according to the destination device as well. In addition to selecting the format, you can choose the quality from a user-friendly slider that lets you choose the output quality and conversion speed.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum for Windows comes with a price tag of $45.95; for Mac, the app comes with a price tag of $35.95. Fortunately the app’s developers have generously offered 10 free licenses to the 10 MakeUseOf readers who share this post on Facebook and comment on this post.

    This is a great program. I have a lot of original DVD's and I rather now play the original if I can. I had used previous version of this program and it was very user friendly and efficient.
