"Very Good, DVD ripping needs extra software."
Converts every useful format.
Utilizes all four cores of my processor.
Can shutdown the computer when done.
Perfect for YouTube video downloads.
Filter audio out from video files.
Sometimes there is no audio if it is used to convert a DVD.
Can't convert audio only formats.
This software is the best, period. It is free, converts every format, and is fast. It faster than NERO, and produces fewer errors than AnyVideo Converter (and doesn't disable features for the free version) There is no paid version so you know your getting everything forever. The only problem is that it sometimes forgets about the audio when ripping a DVD, so I use DVD Decrypter to rip the DVD then use FormatFactory to convert them to .mpg, .mp4, .m4v, .avi, .wmv, .aac, m4a, .mp3, .wma, etc. There are paid software available for ripping DVDs that support more protection systems, but the free one is good for me.There is word about a browser hijack that is difficult to remove. That is bull ****. The browser toolbar is optional, just uncheck the boxes during installation and it isn't installed. If you miss that, just uninstall it from the control panel just like any other software and it is gone.
