Rip DVD to .AVI Straight!

Yo im not a complete newbie when it comes to ripping... been ripping using dvd decrypter and converting to .avi files using Auto Goridan knot for about a year now... But im getting tired of how long it takes to convert using autogk to a .avi file.

Im looking for a program, (I know u can get them on macs - something called Hand Brake) that rips a DVD and converts it straight all in one go to a .avi file.

I've got a PC so I need a program that does it. I tried the Hand Brake Windows beta version or something but it didnt install at all.

Any suggestions are welcome

cheers

peace

Straight is rather rare, there is mencoder, somebody made a gui here. Some other applications like DVDx might be able to do it too but I'm not sure about that. My tool StaxRip is quite versatile and might in combination with AnyDVD and some scripting be able to do it too but since I don't own AnyDVD I can explore this.

Im basically looking for a quicker solution

because the way I do it at the momment takes like 10mins to decrypt then about 7hours to convert to .avi !!!

whereas apparently handbrake can do it all in like 2hours!

Next build will have a htm file with requirements in the install dir, it requires .NET 2.0 as stated on the download page.

Quickest might me Nero Recode. Good things take time and patience, I would be more concerned about quality and compression. With x264 you can have much compression e.g. to save disc space but good settings are painful slow.

Makes me wonder if you also don't know what are system requirements, google, forum search and rules.

Hi everyone!

Is it really wise to rip/encode from the dvd drive "on the fly" to your Pc?

rip/encode in one "go", "on the fly" are things i tend not to use when converting to compressed formats.

It might be faster(?????) but your PC is working like mad, let alone your dvddrive witrh your brand new dvd on it spinning from 2 to 4 hours, NO THANKS!!

i would rather take my time and decrypt it to hard drive(its only 10 minutes anyway!!!!) and then use StaxRip or Avi.net to convert to divx(both are excelent at it!)

to answer your question: i think dvdx 2.5 does what you ask in the post, but my advice is really not to rip/encode on the fly!

I think that DVDx does have a "buffer" option that will load up data and pull from there so that you don't need to have your DVD drive running continuously. I have not used it for quite some time, so I may be mistaken.

Do keep in mind that the faster you want to do a rip, the worse the quality will generally be. 7 hours isn't bad at all. That's par for the course for me. I often encode a movie I'm really fond of 5-6 times to get a result I'm happy with. Then again, I'm really picky.

If you want the fastest possible option, DVD Shrink is awesome. You can process a whole stupid DVD in an hour or two, and have it spit out a DVD+R.

Anyway, if you want to have good quality, it takes lots of dedicated processing and CPU cycles
