Most Popular DVD Ripping Tool – Xinfire DVD Ripper Ultimate

Ripping digital copies of your DVDs so you can take them on the road play them on any device you want, or drop them on your home theater PC has never been easier. There are a number of great free and paid applications that can make the process one-click, or give you all the tools you need to rip and encode beautiful video. Still, some of those apps stand above others, but you may ask which ones is the best. Then, we took a look at the Xinfire DVD Ripper Ultimate – the winner.


We’ve praised Xinfire DVD Ripper Ultimate for its ability to quickly and easily rip DVDs and Blu-ray discs to high quality MKV files with a single click. The app has been in beta for a long time (years, in fact), which is just as well, since the developers promise to start charging for Blu-ray ripping once the app leaves beta. The app’s strong suits are that it’s fast, super easy, and cross-platform (the Linux version is available in the forums.) Plus, the app preserves all of the source discs.
