DVDRip

\"DVD::Rip\"For the past few days I had to rip around 8 DVDs and I have about 10-15 more to do. No doubt that DVD::Rip is the best application I could find for ripping dvds. It works very good and I have no problems with it. The only question is \”which settings are good for ripping?\”.

I am not quite familiar with video and ripping, so somehow I stopped on using xvid4 coded with fast interlacing, medium sound normalization, big frame, high quality resize and the final result to be the size of 2 cds (1.4 gb).

Looks ok, but maybe someone have better idea on how 1.4 GB can be used when ripping with DVD::Rip?

  1. I have been using dvd::rip recently myself. Here is a good tutorial on good settings to use:

    I have been running tests to see what gives me the best quality and here is what I use:

    xvid (2-pass encoding) (the xvid setting will actually default to the most stable version of xvid which I would recommend)

    Medium or big frame size (i’d use big if you are using 2 cds instead of one) Fast resize (I could not see any noticable difference between fast resize and hq resize)

    Deinterlace mode: Zoom to full frame (slowest but looks best — worth the extra encoding time)
