As the name of this program suggests, Altdo DVD to AVI MPEG MP4 MOV Ripper allows you to convert DVD videos to multiple formats, including AVI, MOV and VOB. But it can also extract the audio stream and store it as AAC and MP3.
The interface of the tool is plain and simple to navigate through. You can load a DVD movie by selecting its path from a list or by using the file browser to open its IFO file.
In the file queue you can check out the name and duration of the DVD video and its chapters. If you prefer the default settings, then you can directly initialize the conversion procedure by specifying the output directory and profile.
Otherwise, you can configure audio and video settings when it comes to the size, quality, frame rate, aspect ratio, sample rate, channel mode and volume level. Unfortunately, you cannot create output profiles or restore settings to their default values.
In addition, you can select the audio language and split the DVD video by chapters, preview clips in a small, built-in media player, remove an item from the list or clear the entire file queue, as well as set Altdo DVD to AVI MPEG MP4 MOV Ripper to automatically turn off the computer or to open the output directory after encoding.
