Other DVD Video Extractors You can Try

1. MakeMKV

MakeMKV is a free DVD ripper that is able to extract the video from DVD and Blu-ray discs, including protected ones. It will defeat the DRM and extract the original file from the DVD in MKV format with lossless quality. Since it only repackages the DVD contents and changes the container of the video files, the whole DVD extraction is quite fast. However, MakeMKV doesn't provide many options. You can't extract audio or part of the clips from a DVD.

2. Handbrake

For those who want to extract DVD (homemade only) to MP4, Handbrake is a good choice. It's free and fast. It also supports DVD to MKV. However,  MakeMKV just repackages the original, unmodified video (and audio) into an MKV container while HandBrake re-encodes the video into AVC which results in a smaller file but not the original video. So there will be quality loss. Similarly, Handbrake doesn't allow you to extract DVD audio or part of the DVD clips.
