Guide: Ripping DVD
Step 1. Select the titles you'd like to convert
A movie DVD usually has several titles. The shorter titles on the DVD are usually the video backgrounds used in the DVD menu screens and DVD extras like movie trailers. Unless you are a graphic artist, you probably don't want to convert these titles.
* Movie: If you are ripping a movie, the longest title is usually the main feature.
* TV Shows: If you are ripping a DVD containing TV shows, you should see a list of several titles all about the same length.
Step 2. Change the output settings to convert videos with best quality
I set the output video format to 'iPad MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)', Video Codec as 'H264', Resolution as '640*480', Bitrate as '1500', Frame Rate as '30', Audio Codec as 'aac' by default. Remember that the output file size mostly depends on the Bitrate you set. Larger Bitrate, larger file size.
Step 3. Start converting DVD movies
Now you may click the big button "Start" to begin converting DVD movies onto your hard disk. The Convert progress bar shows you how much of the convert process is completed.
