Editors' review

AoA DVD Ripper sports an interface simple enough to use without consulting the Help file and powerful enough to batch rip DVDs and convert them for portable devices all in one fell swoop. It can also rip specific and user-defined scenes from movies, making it eminently useful in grabbing a particular scene for further study or enjoyment.

The spreadsheet layout is complemented not by tabs, as is the current style, but by helpful numbered buttons and steps. Export formats include the basics like AVI, WMV, and MPEG, as well as FLV, MP4, VCD, and SVCD. You can also use it to extract audio tracks, great for grabbing those memorable quotes. The audio codec used is user-determined, as is the video codec, giving the solid program a bit of a boost in the customization department. You can also set the aspect ratio and tweak other settings if need be.

Users have noted that their customer service has been quick and responsive in the past, and that the registration code works for at least several upgrades--if not longer. All of this makes AoA a highly recommended DVD ripper. Hopefully future editions will support the nascent Blu-ray and AoA will make it to the next generation of movie lovers.

    "Didn't work and created hard to delete file"

    August 26, 2013   |   By mrichmond68

    Version: AoA DVD Ripper 5.5.7

    Pros

    Did not work as expected.

    Cons

    Created hard to delete garbage .avi file

    Summary

    Attempt to rip from dvd failed. XVID window opened and then reported, "not responding". After awhile I killed the process. The file that was created is, so far, undeletable. Everything I try to examine it with get stuck, and I have to kill that process too. Yuck!

    "Relaible for converting the DVDs to mpeg4 for my iPad"

    June 05, 2013   |   By BarrieFoster

    Version: AoA DVD Ripper 5.5.7

    Pros

    Support the various formats I use: DVD to DivX/MP4. Allow for low-to-high quality (bitrate, sample rate, etc.) Fast enough. Nice and intuitive interface. I've tried 6 of these rippers, and I prefer the AoA by far.

    Cons

    Cannot preview film screen from within the program to select video starting & ending frames. This would make it a lot easier for me to locate the clips I need.

    Summary

    The conversion of the video clips ripped from my favorite dvd movies was problem-free and I can see them anytime on my iPad. Nice job.
