Video From Dvd To Avi Files


Hi there!Do you know a good software I can use to rip a video DVD and edit the contents to make smaller videos? I received a video in DVD and I need to divide it into smaller videos and publish them on the internet. The original video is about 45 minutes long. I tried Total Video Converter but it freezes and nothing happens. Also, do you know if it's true that you can upload videos only as long as 10 minutes to YouTube?Thanks in advance for your help!

Want to rip a DVD? Ripping a DVD to xvid or divx avi is really quite easy, if you have the right tools. You?ll first need to download DVD decrypter and auto gordian knot (autogk). DVD decrypter allows you to rip the raw DVD video and audio data off of your disk drive, decrypt the CSS protection, and finally remove any other protection schemes, such as Macrovision. AutoGK is a package of codecs and a GUI interface that will take the raw DVD data through an AV processing pipeline to produce a single windows video file.


Step 1: RIP


Put in a DVD and launch DVD Decrypter. Choose IFO (Information File) mode:

Now make sure you?ve selected a destination for your files:

Now you need to find which program chain to rip (PGC). Pick the one that?s the longest, or in the case of a TV dvd, the episode you want to rip:

Everything?s set up. Just click the green arrow and wait about twenty minutes, after which you will have a set of files which look like this:



VTS_01_PGC_07 - Stream Information.txt



The whole ripping process shouldn?t take more than 5 minutes.


Step 2: ENCODE


Launch AutoGK and select the first .vob that you just ripped as an input file, and set an output file name:

Now you need to select audio (choose the first one) and subtitles, if any:

If you?re ripping a TV, set the preferred size to 350MB, if you?re ripping a movie, choose either 700MB or 1400MB, depending on your preference:

Finally, click on advanced settings and choose MP3 VBR 128kbs:

Then click ?add job? and ?start.? After all this, you?ll have a log that looks like the following:
