How to Remove Commercials from Recorded and Purchased DVD

"I'm very annoyed with the commercials and the trailers on some DVDs. What's worse I can't skip them. How can I remove commercials from DVD? So that I can get straight to the movie."

A commercial DVD often contains adverts, previews, trailers, studio logos, FBI anti-piracy warning, and more things, besides main movie. And a recorded TV program or movie DVD often covers some commercials. If you want to remove commercials from DVD, you can use WinX DVD Ripper Platinum which can edit out ads and other things you don't need from DVD (whether it is a home-made or store-bought disc) and give you a new commercials-free file as MP4 or other format (depends on which output format you choose).

Step 2. Select an output format. WinX provides over 350 optimized output profiles, covering popular video/audio formats like MP4, H.264, AVI, WMV, MOV, and MP3, fashionable devices like iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Samsung mobile, and Xbox game console, and social media platforms like YouTube, etc.

Note: If you choose clone DVD to ISO image or DVD folder, you will get all data on the DVD. Commercials and other extras will also be maintained. If you select the main title only and choose other formats such as MP4, you will get a resulting file without commercials or other crap.

Step 3. Edit out unwanted things in the beginning or the ending. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is an all-in-one DVD ripper and editor coming with some video editing options, including trim, crop, expand, subtitle, and audio. Click Edit button on the title you select, navigate to Trim tab, check Enable Trim, and then specify the start time and the end time of the movie. For example, if I set the start time as 00:02:00, the first two minutes footage will be removed.

It typically appears in a matter of minutes after hitting RUN when multi-core CPU, hardware acceleration and Hyper-threading technologies are fully leveraged.

If you want to burn the resulting file to a DVD, we also have prepared the guide for you.
