Time to rip a DVD is 125 % to 175% length of movie.
Example: 2 hours plus to rip a 1 1/2 hour movie today.
Tested with 5 DVDs. Rips are perfect, but as noted, process takes hours per DVD.
Used/using default rip to "MP4 video" profile within the the general profiles "output profile" selection options.
No other software running
Additionally, disabled a number of background apps in order to optimize PC speed, during Windows 10 setup last year/2015.
Granted, using a 2013 laptop might be a huge, or no, contributing factor. Outdated/slow processor? Even though RAM is small, it should not be an issue, as no other apps running. However, all other applications on laptap are fast. Zero issues, spyware etc.
