ZC DVD Ripper Platinum is a Windows software application whose purpose is to help you back up DVD content to your computer. The tool is able to record video and audio streams, and export data to AVI, DIVX, WMV, MP4, MPEG, WMA, MP3, or other file formats.
The GUI is straightforward and allows you to play DVD movies directly in the main window. Basic playback controls are implemented for helping you start or stop the current selection, seek for a position in the video streams, go to the previous or next chapter, as well as enable a fast- or back-forward mode.
What’s more, you can go to a certain title, chapter, or time point, access the title/subtitle menu, check out the chapter menu, and show or hide the subtitle.
ZC DVD Ripper Platinum gives you the possibility to convert videos to a wide range of file formats and extract the audio streams. The tool offers support for various conversion profiles, such as Apple TV, HD Video, iPod, iPad, iPhone, PSP, Xbox, Zune, and Mobile Phone.
The program lets you export videos to AVI, MPG, MP4, VOB, MOV, WMV, or ASF file format, while audio files can be saved to WMA, AAC, MP3, or WAV files.
What’s more, you are offered the freedom to choose between several profiles (low, medium, normal, or high) or manually fine-tune the audio volume, zoom level, video parameters (e.g. bitrate, frame rate, codec, size), and audio options (bitrate, codec, channels, and sample rate).
Several configuration settings help you automatically load DVD content when the application is started, fast-forward to main movie when you play the video for the first time, disable the screensaver while recording, as well as shut down the computer at the end of the recording.
All things considered, ZC DVD Ripper Platinum comes packed with several handy features for helping you rip DVDs and convert video and audio files to different formats. The intuitive layout makes it suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
