How to Free Rip and Copy DVD to Windows 7/8/10 at Fastest Speed
Although not as many as Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1 together take up over 15% of the marketing share of the entire Operating Systems. On Windows 8/8.1 OS, DVDs can be played with a variety of players, such as VLC, KMPlayer and 5KPlayer. Instead, we can copy DVD onto hard drive for further playing, editing or uploading or even rip DVD to iPhone, iPad and Android video formats supported through some built-in tools or open-source free software such as Handbrake that supports free DVD video conversion.
Handbrake: Best Free DVD Ripper for Windows 8/8.1?
Handbrake can provide good effect when converting DVD to some video formats like MP4 (M4V for Apple users). However, this free DVD ripper has not been supportable for encrypted DVD directly. Some third-party tool/codec (e.g. VLC) has to be used in conjunction with Handbrake to read and preview DVDs. Despite that, the output chapters of DVD video are out of order sometimes.
Besides, Handbrake is more suitable for advanced users than new users because it requires manual parameter settings, and is more for Apple users than Windows users because it runs more stably on macOS. In these senses, Handbrake is not an fast free DVD ripping program for Windows 8, nor a solid DVD software for copy-protected DVDs.
