WinX DVD Ripper Platinum offers you DVD video and audio extraction capabilities, together with some basic video editing tools, all in a simple and intuitive interface that anyone can use and enjoy. It supports all the best known and most widely used media formats, including AVI, MP4, MOV, and FLV, and comes with more than 350 output profiles that cover most mobile devices in the market.

It combines state-of-the-art DVD ripping functionality with the latest decryption algorithms, so that you can back up your entire DVD collection regardless of the disc-protection technology used by the manufacturer. If you wish to enjoy your DVDs in smaller and more portable devices, you can also make use of this tool to convert the main feature (and any of the extras) in your DVDs into formats that your iPad, Kindle Fire HDX, Samsung Galaxy, or Nexus 7 can understand and play back for you. The list of both media formats and devices is too long to reproduce here – suffice it to say that none of the most widespread codecs and devices has been left out of this list. Together with all these media codecs, WinX DVD Ripper can also transform your entire DVDs into perfect image files. Thus, you can create bit-by-bit ISO files just as easily, ensuring that the integrity of your video collection remains intact.

As mentioned, this versatile utility cannot be easily stopped by using DVD encryption technologies, regardless of how new or efficient they claim to be. This program can free your lawfully acquired discs from any CSS, region code, RCE, ArccOS, UOP, or any other proprietary DVD protection method, so that you can make backup copies of your valuable movies.

Even though – strictly speaking – WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is not a video editing tool, it does include some basic yet useful editing functionality. It allows you to extract/convert only a section of the main movie (or any other video stream present in the disc), to crop the image to fit your favorite screen size, to merge and combine various video streams into a bigger one, or to add subtitles to your movies using external SRT files.

It may not be the most comprehensive DVD ripper out there, but it is certainly one of the easiest and most intuitive ones. Its extensive support for most codecs and devices, together with its reasonable tag price, make it suitable for a wide and varied audience.
