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.
AoA DVD Ripper provides a fast and easy way to convert your DVD movies or just the parts of the movie that you want. It copies in high quality AVI (DivX, XviD), WMV (Zune, Pocket PC), 3GP (Mobile), MP4 (iPod, iPad, iPhone, PSP, Apple TV, and MP4 Player), Flash Video (*.flv),VCD (MPEG-1) and SVCD (MPEG-2) formats.
