I’m going to have to stop recommending DVDFab’s free products at this rate. There aren’t many up-to-date alternatives, though there is one good one that rips and decrypts to MKV format. I’ll continue to direct people to that one.[/QUOTE]
Unfortunate there’s not much around.
If you know what you’re doing, the old dvd decrypter 188.8.131.52 still works fine for more than 95% of dvd discs on the market. (It has not been updated in over a decade). Though this assuming one is watching the dvd rips on the computer or on something like a wdtv type of box.
(It’s an entirely different story if one is burning these rips to dvdr discs. A lot of the additional basketcase drm schemes function to trip up burning programs, such that the burned discs are totally messed up or completely unwatchable).
The remaining small 5% of dvd discs with additional basketcase drm schemes, can be ripped as “movie/episodes only” on the old dvd decrypter 184.108.40.206 if one is accustomed to reading *.ifo files on such basketcase dvd discs (using ifoedit).
The only discs that I have not been able to rip using dvddecrypter 220.127.116.11, are some New Line titles released during late-2007 and many Paramount titles released during 2011 -> mid-2014. (These particular New Line and Paramount titles can be easily ripped by other programs).
