DVDFab 10 Review: An All in One DVD/Blu-Ray Ripper, Creator, Converter and Copier

Do you still have a DVD player in your home resting besides your HD TV? If yes then you are still watching movies from a DVD disc on your DVD player. We live in a digital age today and we have various alternatives to watch movies. These alternatives include watching movies on internet, NetFlix or Amazon Prime Video. But you can not always purchase movies from NetFlix or Amazon Prime Video. And for watching and downloading movies from these video services you need an unlimited internet connection. For that you may need to pay a good chunk of your money.

Most people download high definition movies via torrenting. But let me tell you that torrenting has been banned around the world and most ISPs track their users for such activities. So you are now left with two options, watch movies online or buy from NetFlix or Amazon Prime. The second option is to buy a DVD or a Blu-Ray disc of your favourite movie and watch it on your DVD or Blu-Ray player. You can always purchase a DVD or a Blu-Ray disc for a newly launched movie. However it takes time to reach the market.

If you have a good collection of DVD and Blu-Ray Discs then you should convert these movies to a portable movie format that can be played on PCs, HDTVs and smartphones. As you know a DVD or Blu-Ray can't stay with you forever because most of them will corrode overtime and normal wear tear like scratches ruin the data on such discs. So its a wise decision to convert the movie files in these discs to a portable video format like MP4 which is supported by almost every PC, smartphones and most HDTVs in this world.

How To Rip DVD/Blu-Ray and Convert Videos in DVDFab 10

Ripping and Converting both are same. But when we use a DVD/Blu-Ray as a video file source for video conversion then the converting process is called DVD ripping.
