4Media DVD Ripper Platinum is an application which allows you to convert DVDs to media files of multiple formats, including AVI, MKV, MOV, MP4, MP3 and RM. It can be used by both rookies and advanced individuals.
The interface of the program is clean and intuitive. You can open a DVD, ISO or IFO file by using either the file browser, treeview or "drag and drop" method. Batch processing is supported.
In the list you can check out the name, duration, number of chapters, output profile and size, along with status of each DVD. So, once you establish the output directory and file type, you can proceed with the encoding job.
But you can also customize audio and video preferences when it comes to the codec, size, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, encode mode, sampling rate, channels and others.
Furthermore, you can preview clips in a built-in media player and capture frames, trim videos by marking the start and end time position, select the audio language, angle and subtitle track, process separate DVD chapters, check out a log window, set post-task actions (e.g. exit program, turn off computer), enable 4Media DVD Ripper Platinum to run in the background in low priority mode, use a bit rate calculator, and others.
The DVD conversion software takes up a pretty high amount of system resources, has a good response time, supports several skins and languages for the interface, quickly finishes a task and manages to keep a good image and sound quality. There's also a brief step-by-step guide available for novices. We highly recommend 4Media DVD Ripper Platinum to all users.
