As the name of this program suggests, Aimersoft DVD Audio Ripper allows you to extract the audio stream from DVD movies and save it to multiple formats, including MP3, M4A, AC3, AAC, WAV and OGG.

The app is wrapped in a clean and intuitive interface where you can load a DVD movie by using either the file browser, treeview or "drag and drop" method. Unfortunately, you cannot process multiple DVD videos in a single session.

The file queue allows you to read the source, original and trimmed length (if you want to cut clips), along with estimated size and destination name of the DVD video. All you have to do is specify the output directory and file type, in order to proceed with the encoding procedure with the default settings.

Skilled users may be interested in making audio modifications when it comes to the sample rate, encoder, channel mode and bit rate. These settings can be saved to a new profile or restored to their default values.

Moreover, you can preview clips in a built-in media player and capture frames (as JPG or BMP), select the audio track and merge multiple chapters into one file. Plus, you can crop and trim videos, apply effects (e.g. emboss) and add watermarks (text or image). During the conversion procedure, you can set Aimersoft DVD Audio Ripper to automatically power off the system or to display the output directory when the task is done.

The video processing program requires a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and completes a task in reasonable time. It is very responsive, includes a help file and outputs a good sound quality in the output audio tracks. On the downside, you cannot specify the thread priority, edit metadata or add lyrics.
