Most Popular DVD Ripping Freeware and Download Link
Gone those days when we used to buy DVDs of our choice and stack it up for collection. Now a days, hard drives (internal and/or external) are getting so affordable that most of us choose to rather have our movies collected as soft copy. There's multiple benefits of it too. You don't have to create space for the DVDs, you don't have to carry all or few of them when you are going to a friends house and watch it on the big screen. So we copy the DVD movie onto our hard drive and carry a single hard drive with us. Now, this method is called DVD Ripping. Where you rip the DVDs into your chosen file format (i.e.: MP4, AVI, MKV, VOB, etc.). Most Popular DVD Ripping Freeware and Download Link
