WinX DVD Ripper Platinum – Backup Your DVD in 5 Mins [Giveaway]

Saikat Basu 11-10-2010

DVDs come with a shelf life. So, it’s a careful man who will take the effort to backup his painstakingly collected collection of DVD movie titles. If you are one, then WinX DVD Ripper Platinum for Windows is the tool for the job.


WinX DVD Ripper Platinum extracts (rips) a DVD and converts it to a popular format of your choice. Pick one from the 15 available formats. Then, the DVD ripper easily creates 1:1 DVD backups, without quality loss in video or audio. The backup job from source to a copy will take just 5 minutes. Even the copy protection technology of today’s DVDs doesn’t stump the ripping powers of WinXDVD Ripper as it comes with support for CSS protected DVDs. No worries too for Sony ArccOS DVDs and all Region 1-6 DVDs.

This week, we will be giving away 10 copies of this software, worth almost $300 in total. But first let’s take a short tour and get acquainted with the app.

A Slick Easy To Grasp Interface

Whether it’s a plain and simple DVD copy or a rip to any of the popular formats, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum does it in three steps. Thanks to the intuitive interface, it comes down to just selecting the source disc, picking the output format, and clicking on the Start button.

All Popular Formats Find a Place

  1. Rip to popular video formats (AVI, WMV, MOV, MPEG1/2, MP4 and FLV).
  2. Rip to popular portable device and device formats (iPod, iPhone, iPad, PSP, Zune, Apple TV, Zune, Zen, and 3GP).
  3. Rip DVD audio track to MP3.

Each format gets a tab of its own with customizable output settings for picture perfect conversions. You can pick selections from the dropdown to vary audio-video quality, volume levels, sample rates, video resolution, aspect ratio, and more. The DVD ripping tool allows you to selectively trim any segment and optimize it for the output device or for an archive. A simple cropping tool removes unwanted areas around a frame to get full screen images.

A Slew of Intelligent Capabilities

With support for multi-core CPUs, you can streamline the performance of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum for high-speed ripping and conversion.

The app has several distinctive features: the Advanced De-interlaced Accelerator helps to improve the picture quality by progressively scanning the movie and smoothening out distortions. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum has an Intelligent A/V Synchronizer which automatically syncs the DVD’s audio with the movie. A conversion process can stutter due to many reasons. The Safe Mode prevents any problems during conversion by running at a slower but surer speed. A one-click screen capture button is there next to the preview screen if you want to take quick JPEG/BMP screenshots.


WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a good thing and worth every byte of its 9.4MB download. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is supported by Windows 98, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista (32 & 64 bit), Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit).

The clinching argument for a software is whether it can be used alike by the rookie and the expert. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum’s user friendliness answers that.

    The truth: This is what the software makers do not tell you:

    While they do a decent job of translating to different formats the resulting converted file is jerky depending on the DVD format. I've know older DVD formats to work relatively smooth. However, new DVD are a little too jerky for my taste. Winxdvd has a revamped graphical interface, but falls short on creating Premium Quality output. Aiseesoft Blu-ray which also does DVD when you set FPS to 60 and Video bit rate to 18000 which are maximum settings you get a high quality experience. Of course it is a larger file, but very near DVD original quality. Keep in mind that the output file is MP4 format. Winxdvd does not have the ability currently to set FPS that high or the video bit rate. I hope that they will one day soon. I used both and prefer Aiseesoft right now, but when Winxdvd has this ability I'll likely switch back.
