How to choose a DVD/Blu-ray/iTunes movie ripping software

As a movie collector, you must have a lot of DVD and Blu-ray movie discs, then ripping will become one of your most important tasks. How to pick out a DVD/Blu-ray ripping software? What makes a good DVD/Blu-ray ripping software? Now let’s figure out.

In my opinion, a piece of fine ripping software should cover the following functions:

  1. Decryption. Today most commercial movie discs are encrypted with various protections, so disc decryption is the most basic feature for a DVD/Blu-ray ripping software.

  2. Supports a variety of output video formats and presets, optimized for a variety of playback devices.

  3. Supports processing 4K UHD discs due to their growing popularity, which is a big demand for movie enthusiasts.

  4. Supports removing the DRM encryptions so your iTunes movies can play on any unauthorized non-Apple devices. Typically, however, this feature will be handled as a single product at a medium high price.

  5. Video editing function, such as trim, crop, add watermark, etc., even 2D to 3D conversion.

  6. High ripping quality, keeping almost the same quality as the source movie.

According to the descriptions above, here are some excellent DVD/Blu-ray ripping software tools:
