Just playing devil’s advocate for a moment here. You should be aware that DVDFab has gone to a subscription model…you will have to pay periodic fees for updates. That makes it less attractive to me as an option.
AnyDVD and CloneDVD are still available for purchase with lifetime free updates. But only for two more days. They go to a subscription model as well starting Jan 1, 2009.
The free section of DVDFab HD Decrypter has no time limits, it continues to function even after the 30 day trial for the main section is complete. And DVDShrink is totally free.
Another free option is DVDRebuilder. It doesn’t decrypt or rip, but will reduce the size of the movie to fit a blank dvd. And it will do so with higher quality than can be produced with a transcoder like Fab, Shrink or CloneDVD. The trade off is that it takes more time. There is also a paid version called DVDRebuilder Pro with considerably more options built in.
Thought you should know some of the options.
