Editors' review

AoA DVD Ripper lets you save movies to your computer in multiple formats, so you can play them back later on the device of your choice. Through the program's intuitive interface, you can quickly add files and complete the transfer without being a technical wizard.

Pros

Multiple formats: When you save movies from DVD to your computer through this app, you can choose to save them in one of several different formats depending on the device you ultimately want to play the movie on. Options include AVI, MPG, WAV, WMV, MP4, TBM, 3GP, and FLV.

Versatile tool: In addition to ripping entire DVDs, this program also lets you be more specific about the file you want to save. For instance, you can select just certain clips, specific chapters, or even just audio tracks, and save those as individual files for easy access later.

Cons

No clip preview: If you want to save a specific clip from a film, you'll have to know exactly what times to cut between, because there is no option to preview and select the clip visually. This requires a bit of planning ahead, but it doesn't have a hugely negative impact on the process.

Bottom Line

AoA DVD Ripper is a competent program that's very easy to use. It gives you just about all of the functionality you're looking for, and it works quickly to get your files converted as conveniently as possible. A free trial is available that allows you to rip a maximum of ten minutes of video, and the app costs $39.95 to purchase in full.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AoA DVD Ripper 5.5.7.

    "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.
