Users who work with personal DVD videos need a program capable of changing them to editable formats. DVDxDV Pro for Mac performs this function well, but its lack of other capabilities makes it less useful for average users.
DVDxDV Pro for Mac offers a free trial version that places a watermark on the output video. The full, unrestricted version requires payment of $39.99. Its download completed quickly, but the installation took longer than expected, despite the native installer. Upon startup, the program gives the user access to a number of tutorial videos, which walk the user through certain functions. The program's interface, itself, may be complicated for those users who are not experienced with video applications. Drop-down menus allow the user to select input from DVDs or other saved DVD video files. Other formats are not supported. Videos loaded into the program quickly and the conversion process also finished as expected. The program only works with unprotected DVDs. The application also allows users to load DVDs and upload sections of them to YouTube, which is a welcome feature. Unfortunately, there are no advanced functions, like editing.
For those users who need to convert personal DVDs to editable formats, DVDxDV Pro for Mac performs this function well, but lacks advanced features that would be useful.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of DVDxDV Pro for Mac 3.6.1.
