How to Rip an Episode from TV Series/Episodic TV/Sitcoms/Music TV/TV Show DVD
I would like to rip a TV series DVD. Not the whole DVD, but each episode. As I want the quality to be exactly the same as on the DVD, I don't want to re-encode anything. I also want to keep all audio tracks and subtitles to study foreign language while watching the episodes.
Rip an Episode from TV Series DVD/TV Show DVD
An episode is a part of a sequence of a body of work, akin to a chapter of movie or TV series. It is frequently used in soap operas, science fiction series, comedies and animated films. Typically, the episodes of episodic TV shows are classified according to the plot or storyline of film script.
