It is generally known that DVD ripper is a kind of software that functions in extracting the audio and video content of DVD and output in a certain format of video file. Some well-known DVD converter such as Handbrake supports convert DVD video (MPEG) to MPEG-4 file (.MP4). Some free DVD ripper such as WinX DVD Ripper can even rip DVD to WMV, MOV, FLV or other common video formats on Windows 10, 8.1, 7 and XP.
However, people need a more advanced DVD ripper to back up a dvd with all audio and subtitle tracks throughout the entire movie. Indeed, it can be achieved by the platinum version of WinX free DVD ripper – WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. Besides the essential DVD to video and DVD to portable device features, it also supports DVD copy modes, namely, clone DVD to multi-track MPEG2, copy DVD to ISO, clone DVD to a folder, copy DVD main title with selected language or audio track, and even rip a dvd with forced subtitles.
