New Recommendation Please

Hello I am new to the board, I was hoping that someone would be able to recommend a free program that rip the files from a DVD and then let me convert them to mpeg so I can them reauthor them and make my own DVV using Nero. I do not want to back up the full DVD I just want parts from various DVD’s so I can turn them into a new DVD using Nero.

Something to TMPGEnc,


If the protection isn’t too advanced, you can use DVDShrink in reauthor mode to select certain sections of the dvd. Use the Start/End Frames tool within Shrink to pick the exact part of the movie you want to save. This will give you a smaller dvd as output. No need to use Nero unless you want to combine several such sections into one dvd.

In that case you can convert the vob files found in your smaller sections to mpg using a tool called Vob2Mpg.

And if the protection found on your original dvd is too advanced for DVDShrink to handle on its own, you can rip to the hard drive first using DVDFab HD Decrypter, then open the files and work with them using DVDShrink.

All of the programs I have mentioned are free to use (except Nero of course)

Perhaps DVDFab?

VideoDVD already contains mpeg, exactly mpeg2.
No need to convert it really, depending on the target format/mediatype.

@niteflite73 - welcome to the forum.

Please don’t crosspost, it’s against forum rules, and makes more work for staff and members.
