    Does anyone know any semi-good programs, free programs.

    For ripping DVDs to MPEGs or WMVs etc...?

    Thx

    use dvd decrypter to get the VOBS (DVD video files) onto your harddrive. then use virtualdub or TMPGENC to convert to DIVX, XVID or 3IVX. remember you need the correct codecs installed. Divx Pro for Divx etc.

    I know it's old....... but I always preferred Blacksun's DVDReaper. Coupled with the XviD codec. Then mux with VirtualDub

    most of those all-in-one programs are merely using free components and bundling them in a package for people to pay for and download with a flashy user interface. I actually know the author of one of the top rated free ripping programs and he is disgusted to see these companies using his tool as a part of their "suite" to rip and encode all in one.

    DVD decrypter is one of the best programs for ripping DVDs to your hard drive, then you can take it further with virtual dub or other tool of choice.

    Of course this is all for the purposes of backing up your own dvds or seeing how various compressions and algorithms work, im not condoning piracy.

    Anything deemed as illegal that you want to share there is a private message function, keep them off the public forums. thanks.

    I'm only interested in shoving my dvds onto my lappy to conserve battery power... battery will last about 20-25% longer when I am not using the DVD-Drive... It lasts about 3 hours with DVD drive and about 4 to 4.5 hours without using the dvd drive. I wanna watch a couple of films on the traverse from Lincoln to Bournemouth

    DVD Decrypter is also nice for burning .img files to DVD. And if anyone that has a DVDRW and wants to backup their DVDS, DVDXCOPY is a decent program for it. Defintely not the best, but it works. I've used it with my new XMAS present. 8x DVDRW drive;)

    Darn it... I've stripped the VOBs to my HDD... yet I can't seem to find a program to encode them to avi/divx/xvid/mpeg... Vdub won't detect them as video files... how would I go about doing this?

    use a program that utilizes MPEG2AVI

    Vobs are in MPEG1 or 2 ...... i can't remember. then you use a program that reads the MPEG and converts it to AVI.

    you know ive about 14 versions of virtual dub and very few of them work with VOBS apart from VirtualDub-1.4.13-MPEG2-AC3., which will parse them perfectly if you select "view ALL files" on the open pallette and open the single file VOB (no splits on dvd decrypter on saves time later) on your hard drive.

    Really? I wasn't aware that any version of VirtualDub could open VOB files. I always use DVD2AVI to create a D2V file, then VFAPI to convert that to a "fake" AVI that I can use in VirtualDub.
