I’m writing in hope that I can get some guidance and suggestions on DVD ripping software and video downloading software. Ideally free would be best but would be willing to purchase the products to get quality and simplicity; as long as it does not cost an arm and a leg.
I’ve checked out several on the internet and a lot of them have way too many unnecessary bells and whistles and others not enough. Some look like you need a PhD in quantum physics to operate. I accept the fact that I’ll probably have get 2 separate software packages in order to get what I’m looking for and I’m fine with that. Here is what I’m looking for.
1. A dvd ripper that copies high quality back-up dvd’s. and to be able to make copies on my hard drive, as IOS format for later burning and a video TS format. Also would like this to be able to rip the audio part only so I can burn this to an audio cd later.
2. A software downloader that can download videos from the internet like youtube videos, TV programs, movies, and other various video clips from different websites.
Would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions from you folks as my head is swimming after looking at the maze of products out there.
