Watching DVDs on your home cinema or on your computer is quite easy, but if you want to view their contents on other devices such as mobile phones, game consoles or portable players, you most probably need to convert them to other supported formats.
Rip DVD Plus is a streamlined piece of software that aims to help you rip your DVDs to more popular video formats such as WMV, AVI, MPEG and MP4, just to name a few.
The application comes with a simple user interface that, while not something very impressive, makes it very easy for you to access the important functions. From the utility's main window you can open, play and eject DVDs with just a few mouse clicks.
Most of the work with the tool is possible directly from its typical toolbar, with easily accessible functions and large buttons.
Furthermore, the app enables you to either rip the entire DVD video or capture individual titles and chapters. This is a good time to point out that the tool can merge multiple DVD chapters into a single one.
In addition, the program allows you to customize the look and feel of your output videos with the help of its built-in editor. You can effortlessly crop and trim your videos, as well as adjust parameters like brightness, contrast, hue and saturation.
While the tool offers you a fair amount of ripping and video editing features, it needs to be stated that this is not what you would call a fast application, but on the contrary.
While loading the actual DVDs is a quick process, everything else (including playing or editing your videos) feels sluggish.
Taking all things into consideration, Rip DVD Plus is a straightforward tool that helps you rip the content of your DVDs to other, more popular formats out there. The application does not bring anything new to the table, and on top of that, it feels slow and outdated in most situations.
