Open DVD Ripper is a neat and simple application that can rip and convert movie DVDs to video files of various formats. It can rip not only DVDs, but also extract videos from DVD folders or from ISO DVD images. It represents a great solution to create copies of your DVDs in order to back them up and protect their content. It's also a great solution to make the content of DVDs compatible for being played on various types of portable devices.
Two things impressed me about Open DVD Ripper: its very simple, neat and intuitive interface that makes this tool very easy-to-use even for beginners and the large variety of supported output formats. It can rip the video DVDs to a lot of formats, including popular ones like AVI, MKV, WMV, 3GP, MP4, MOV, RM and so on. Due to the fact that it can output the DVDs to so many formats, you can obtain video files which can be played on portable devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod, PSP, Xbox, etc.
The interface comes with an “expert mode” which includes handy video editing functions. Trimming, cropping and adding watermarks are the most common supported functions, but even more advanced and powerful features like converting 2D to 3D movies are available. It's also possible to set 3D features like Red/Cyan, Red/Green, Red/Blue, Blue/Yellow, Interleaved, Side By Side, etc.
In conclusion, Open DVD Ripper is a nice tool that represents a good choice for anyone in need of ripping and converting DVD movies.
