Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Not that long ago, DVDs seemed wonderfully compact. Now, in the age of the 100GB hard drive, they look positively bulky. Enter the DVD ripper. As with similar programs, A1 DVD Ripper converts your space-consuming DVDs to relatively trim MPEG or AVI files. The straightforward interface offers a plethora of settings for advanced users. You can choose and configure the codec, and select chapters, subtitles, and audio tracks. The program performed adequately in our tests, though we missed the ability to preview chapters before converting them. We also found some aspects of A1 DVD Ripper Standard needlessly complicated. For instance, if you want to rip a movie to a file appropriate for burning to CD, you have to calculate the bit rate yourself. The demo lets you rip only 50 percent of a given movie--a common restriction for this sort of program. Overall, A1 DVD Ripper Standard has its strong points, but it's not much more helpful or convenient than some of its freeware competitors. Shop around.
