As we mentioned Ripping DVD, first freeware is Handbrake.


Handbrake is an open-source DVD ripper working under Mac, Windows and Linux, which can only convert DVDs to MP4 and MKV, with support for iPhone, iPods, Apple TVs,iTunes, PSPs, PS3s. But the DVD that Handbrake supported is homemade/unprotected only or can be played by your DVD player; it cannot rip commercial DVDs if without the help of third party software, not to mention the Disney new copy protections.

In addition, Handbrake is not stable, sometimes even crash, especially when running on macOS Sierra. And if you would like to upload a commercial or home-made DVD movie to video sharing website or to your web page or blog, HandBrake can’t help at all.


For Mac user, you must be familiar with MacTheRipper, which is well known as a free DVD ripper (extractor) for Mac OS X.


MacTheRipper can removes CSS encryption, Macrovision protection, sets the disc’s region to ‘0’ for region-free as well as copy ARccOS copy-protected DVDs, and is capable of removing RCE region checking. That is to say MTR is able to backup your legally-purchased DVDs onto your hard drive. But it doesn’t encode its rips to other formats. It just rips the DVD menu and all to your hard drive in VOB file. It also needs a third party software to convert VOB to MP4, AVI or other formats. So if you would like to rip DVD directly to the format you desire, you’d better to take a look at MacX DVD Ripper Free Edition.

DVD Shrink

An easy-to-use solution for shrinking original DVDs onto recordable media.


It is able to rip DVD to your hard drive as video files or as an ISO image. Then you can burn the output files by integrating with Nero or other DVD burning software. What makes this program unique is its ability to compress DVD data to the standard 4.7-gig DVD. You will rarely, if ever, notice any decrease in video quality.

The latest version was built in 2004. The UI looks “unfashionable” today. But personally, I like its considerate and friendly design very much. It lists the DVD structure including Menus, Main Movie and Unreferenced Materials. This means you can easily choose which parts of the DVD you want to ripping and shrinking. It’s a nice feature for you to leave out unwanted bonus features, audio data for languages, etc.

DVD Shrink offers built-in decryption algorithms to “read” encrypted DVDs. Unfortunately, as it stopped updating in 2004, some recent copy protection methods are not supported.

Format Factory

Rip DVDs and mucis CDs to video file as well as create ISO images.

The strongest point of Format Factory lies in its support of converting numerous file formats, including video to video, audio to audio, DVD to video, and also image to image. The latest version supports 62 different languages which further makes it a global application.

This program supports converting videos to mobile devices as can be seen on the top of the Video column on the left side. 20+ mobile devices or mobile device compatible formats are available, including Apple, Sony, Google, Nokia, etc. It’s really convenient for some folks who wanna playing various videos on their portable devices. In addition to converting videos, FormatFactory also acts as a DVD/CD ripper.

The output format seems a little bit limited. It only supports ripping DVD to ISO/CSO file. What’s more, it can’t rip DVDs with CSS according to my test. (But perhaps it supports some old CSS protected DVDs, I guess.)
