WinX DVD Ripper Review and Alternatives 2017

Alternatives Review

Granted, some of you might prefer to procure a free DVD ripping application to avoid some extra fees. Nevertheless, now that everyone wants more bang for their buck than ever, a chance to get a retailed product for free can’t be more tempting. Plus, this software boasts features that freeware can’t hold a candle to, like omnipotent decryption ability, lightning-fast ripping speed and user-friendly operation. In a way, this epitomizes why WinX DVD Ripper has found its place atop many lists collecting the best DVD ripping and backup software for Windows 10.

WinX DVD Ripper Review

WinX DVD Ripper is a program that enables you to convert DVDs to several media formats, including MP4, MPEG, WMV, FLV and MOV. The tool comes with a user-friendly interface in which you can import a DVD folder from disc or from the hard drive, by using the file browser (the “drag and drop” method is not supported). So, all you have to do is select the output destination and format, and initiate the conversion process.

During the ripping job, you can set WinX DVD Ripper to open the output folder or to shut down the computer when conversion is completed. In addition, you can configure settings when it comes to audio quality, sample frequency rate, volume and format, as well as video quality, frame rate, format and resolution.

Furthermore, you can preview the DVD, select the subtitle language (or disable the option to convert subtitles), as well as set the starting and ending time if you want to trim the video.The program takes a while to finishes a task, uses a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and includes a well-written help file with snapshots. We haven’t encountered any kind of difficulties during our tests. The image and sound quality in the output files is very good.

The bottom line is that WinX DVD Ripper is an excellent tool for converting DVDs to other video extensions and we strongly recommend it to all users.

WinX DVD Ripper Alternative

Free means imperfect. Free WinxDVD DVD Ripper can’t fulfill all your needs, which pushes you to look for a replacement, maybe due to software stability, ripping speed or the quality of output video. What’s more, free edition of WinX DVD Ripper can’t remove any copy protection from DVD. And in output aspect, it will also be equivocal. Many situations may have you find the alternative to WinX DVD Ripper.
