Ripit4me help


I just got the Ripit4me/DVD decrypter/FixVTS combo, and I just need some overall help for ripit4me.

Basically after inserting the DVD, what options do I need to check/uncheck? I really don’t know what any of them mean :stuck_out_tongue:

Any help would be great. Thanks!

The guide on the homepage is excellent.

I agree, read the guide. There are also FAQ’s, both found here.

For most movies you can just use the default settings,
and use the 1-click mode.

Also, some other forums, such as Digital Video Digest, have a sub-forum dedicated to ripit4me, where there is a lot of help and support. IMHO, it is unfortunate that this forum does not have a ripit4me sub-forum, given the increasing popularity of this free ripper.

Basically, you first install the final versions of DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink. They are awesome programs that everyone should have on their PC, if they are into DVD video ripping, imo. Neither are updated for new forms of copy protections, but even without that, they are worth using, imo - especially DVD Shrink.

RipIt4Me was developed, it appears, to help DVD Decrypter handle new copy protections. So that great tool has essentially been resurrected and can now rip your DVD’s like the old days.

RipIt4Me also takes advantage of another great program called FixVTS. It is included in the INSTALLER version of RipIt4Me available from here:

Basically, you install DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink with the DEFAULT settings left in tact. Then you install RipIt4Me, again, not changing any options.

Then you run RipIt4Me from the icon on the desktop that it creates for you and follow the prompts. The defaults should work for most people. I use the Wizard to step through things, and that seems to work best for me. I say yes to everything it asks, such as creating that file to work with DVD Decrypter, then I click the DVD Decrypter GO button and it handles the rip.

If, after DVD Decrypter runs, I get to the FixVTS screen:

I make sure all the options are checked and I process it with FixVTS, just to make sure it’s all neat and tidy.

Then I usually click the Open with DVD Shrink option and get to work.

Good stuff.

But if this is a bit complicated for you, there is another free app called DVDFab Decrypter, which can do a great job of decrypting and is a bit easier and doesn’t rely on any other app. You can download it here:

All free, all good stuff.

Best of luck and happy burning!
