Download Windows 8.1/8 DVD Ripper to Fast Rip DVDs

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 rip DVD on Windows 8/8.1 to hard drive for further playing, editing or uploading or even copy 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.

Is Handbrake the Best Free DVD Ripper for Windows 8/8.1?

More people wonder that whether HandBrake can rip DVDs on Windows 8.1/8, but unfortunately, some may find that HandBrake is not working on Windows 8.1 and 10 perfectly for DVD ripping. Disney and many other encrypted DVDs such as Iron Man 3 and Monsters University failed to be ripped by HandBrake on Windows 8.1/10.

For common homemade DVDs, Handbrake can provide good effect when converting DVD to some video formats like MP4 (M4V for Apple users). However, 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 8/8.1, nor a solid DVD software for copy-protected DVDs.
