There are many reasons you may want to rip your DVDs, and the most important one is that it keeps you out of harm’s way in case anything happens to your discs. Sog DVD Ripper is an application that offers assistance in this regard.
More specifically, the program can rip and convert DVD movies to a multitude of both video and audio file formats while also letting you apply some modifications to your media in the process.
Once you install Sog DVD Ripper, you are welcomed by a grey user interface that should be quite easy to get accustomed to, even though it is not exactly eye-candy.
The first step you need to take is select the DVD you want to rip, with its contents being automatically displayed in the main window once you do that. The title info, video or audio subtitle, and duration are displayed for each item in part.
As for the output file formats you can choose from, you should know that your options include not only video but also audio. As such, support for AVI, MPEG, MP4, WMV, MOV, and FLV is provided along with MP3.
Depending on the file format you opt for, selecting an output profile that suits your needs should raise no difficulty. Choosing between the original and custom size and aspect ration is thus possible, as is the case of selecting an audio and video quality, audio sample rate, video frame rate, audio channel, video resolution, and volume.
Trimming your media is also possible, which means removing the sections you are not interested in should raise no difficulty whatsoever, as is the case of indicating an output folder.
On an ending note, Sog DVD Ripper is an intuitive piece of software you could turn to in order to back up movies stored on DVD discs. The program can rip and convert them to various audio or video formats while also letting you make a series of modifications before saving the media to your computer, but its capabilities remain rather modest, and its appearance a little outdated.
