I am trying to rip a dvd to avi format but am not getting good results like in some avi files I have seen out there. I have tried using Yasa dvd ripper and Magic DVD ripper. Can anyone give me any advice on how to go about doing this.
Most people i know use Gordian Knot. I've never used it myself but i've talked to a few people who swear by it. http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=Gordian_Knot
A DVD contains mpeg2 format files and so you can only rip such files to your hdd.Of course you can convert them later into another format, but that is not ripping.
