2016 Best 3 DVD Ripping Software-2D 3D Movie Tips

2016 Best 3 DVD Ripping Software-2D 3D Movie Tips 
DVD playback will never be limited in DVD Drive and professional DVD Player. There are many people watching their DVD movies on TV, PC, Tablet, iPad in Home Theater via NASPersonal Cloud Storage,Chromecast. Rich media playback solutions riches the media life. However, only if you want to separate your DVD playback from DVD drive/player, you need to rip DVD to digital video format. And the work is based onDVD Ripper 


However, there are plenty of great utilities designed to rip DVD discs and and give you popular video that are playable on any device you choose, whenever you choose to watch them. Too many choices makes no choice. Many people just get a headache when they need to select only one in hundreds. Here are three of the best 2016, based on thousands consumers’ nominations. 

2016 Best DVD ripper #1: Handbrake 

OS Platform: Windows & Mac & Linux 


Key features: Handbrake is our favorite video encoder for a reason: it’s simple, easy to use, easy to install, and offers a wealth of tweaking options to get the best possible file as a result. If you’re daunted by them, you don’t even have to use them—the app will compensate for you and pick some settings it thinks you’ll like based on your destination device. So many of you like Handbrake that many of you use it in conjunction with another app (like VLC, which makes ripping easy)—you’ll let another app do the rip and crack the DRM on your discs, and then process the file through Handbrake for encoding. 

Pros: The app is fast, can make the most of multi-core processors to speed up the process, and is completely open source. Best of all, it’s completely free. 

Cons: Only outputs MP4, MKV formats. Only can rip unencrypted DVD. Handbrake isn't updated often. Its presets are often out of date. 

Editor’s note: Since it is free, I think I will choose it first if I need a DVD Ripper. After all, MP4 is enough for nearly all devices and media players

2016 Best DVD ripper #2: Pavtube ByteCopy 

OS Platform: Windows & Mac 


Key features: Pavtube ByteCopy is your best DVD copying and backing up tool which can rip and backup DVD in any copy protection like Sony, Disney and region codes. It can convert DVD to any other formats like H.265, M3U8, MP4, MOV , M4V, AVI, WMV, MPG, MKV, etc or MP4/MOV with multi-track audios for playback on iOS/Android/Windows Tablets/Phones, HD Media Players (WDTV), editing software (Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, etc.), and more. 

And other than that, Pavtube ByteCopy is also able to encode DVDs to MKV container format with preserving chapter markers, multiple audio tracks and subtitles and make it possible for you to easily select your needed tracks, subtitles when watching DVD movies with your media players. creating 3D video is supported by ByteCopy. What’s more, it also can rip and copy Blu-ray. 

Pros: A top Multi-track Blu-ray/DVD Converter to all of you with excellent ability to pick up multi-track for playing BD/DVD movies on Media Players and portable device. It also can extract subtitle/audio from Blu-ray/DVD. 

Cons: It is a paid one. If you want to use its free trial version, you have to bear the watermark in the middle of the video. 

Editor’s note: If I need a more powerful DVD Ripper, Pavtube ByteCopy is no doubt the best choice. But if I only need to rip DVD to MP4 and my DVD has no encryption, I will definitely select Handbrake. 

2016 Best DVD ripper #3: MakeMKV 

OS Platform: Windows & Mac & Linux 


Key features: We’ve praised MakeMKV before for its ability to quickly and easily rip DVDs to high quality MKV files with a single click. The app has been in beta for a long time (years, in fact), which is just as well, since the developers promise to start charging for Blu-ray ripping once the app leaves beta. The app’s strong suits are that it’s fast, super easy, and cross-platform. 

Pros: The app preserves all of the source disc’s information, including tracks, chapters, HD audio, menus, and so on. The app is completely free. 

Cons: Only MKV output. 

Editor’s note: I found little software will keep multiple audio and subtitle tracks when ripping BD/DVD discs. But MakeMKV and Pavtube ByteCopy must be in the list. 

At the end of the day, DVD rippers are applications that set your movies from discs and allow you to have digital copies of the content that you’ve paid for. And please keep in mind, only personal usage of the DVD rips is legal.

Plex App For New Apple TV 4 Confirmed and Videos Tips

Note: The Plex app requires the new fourth generation Apple TV, as Apple does not make the app store available on older models of the device. 

After months and arguably years of rumors, Apple finally unveiled its new Apple TV this past week, debuting the new device alongside refreshed iPhones and a brand new iPad Pro. Sharing the event with such heavy hitters it would have been easy for the Apple TV to be lost in the melee, but excitement appears to be growing for the little black puck. 

The reason for that is the new focus on apps, after Apple announced that the fourth generation Apple TV would include its own App Store, along with an SDK for developers to create their own apps. As soon as that was announced many people’s attention turned to what those apps may be, and while Apple had some developers on-stage to show off games and shopping experience, one app is more highly anticipated than just about any other – Plex. 


The popular media playback app, available for other set top boxes in both official and unofficial capacities, seems to be ready made for the App Store on Apple TV, but would the people behind Plex be interested in making their app for the newly opened platform? 

You bet they would! 

In an interview, Plex’s developers said: 

We are very excited to have a crack at bringing our users Apple TV. It’s been a long requested platform and we’re excited to work on it. We want it, our users want it…and we’re anxiously awaiting the tvOS developer beta info, so we can finally dig in. 

Of course we have started digging in and looking at it, but we have some bigger questions to answer before we can set any expectations. 

Perhaps predictably at this early stage, there is no timescale for when Plex will be available on the Apple TV and, in fact, the hardware itself won’t be shipping for a few weeks yet anyway. If Plex does indeed get built for the Apple TV and importantly, it finds its way through Apple’s App Store testing, the hugely capable media playback app could be one of the biggest hits of the new device’s App Store. 


We know we’d be using it. A lot.
