As the name of this software implies, allows you to convert DVDs to another format, namely VOB. It can be easily used by rookies.
The interface of the application is plain and easy to work with. You can import a DVD into the list by using the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is not possible.
In the queue you can check out the name, type, duration, size and output format of each cell. All you have to do is specify the output destination and proceed with the encoding job.
Furthermore, you can open the target folder, as well as enable River Past DVD QuickRip to overwrite existing files and to merge seamless cells into one unit.
The simple-to-use DVD conversion software runs on a small amount of system resources, has a good response time, quickly finishes a task and manages to keep a good image and sound quality in the output videos. No errors have occurred during our testing and River Past DVD QuickRip did not freeze or crash. There's also a brief help file with snapshots available.
On the other hand, the interface is outdated and the fact that batch processing is not supported is a major disadvantage. Plus, you cannot preview videos, configure program settings (e.g. enable River Past DVD QuickRip to automatically turn off the computer after conversion) or change audio and video settings (e.g. frame rate, resolution, sample frequency rate, channel mode, volume). We mainly recommend River Past DVD QuickRip to novices who prefer a straightforward tool.
