How simple is it to use the software?
As said earlier, WonderFox DVD Ripper comes with a very simple yet elegant user interface which takes you directly to the task that you are intended to do with the software. Yes, no need to waste time searching the task that you wish to do as everything is present in the home screen itself.
The entire software consists of three main steps and they are to select the source DVD disc, to choose the destination folder and choose the output format to which you would like to rip the DVD disc. Please go through the below guide on how to use the software.
First, you need to select the DVD source which has the DVD video that you like to rip. It can be either a DVD disc, an ISO image file or a DVD folder. So click on the appropriate option and select the DVD disc that you wish to rip.
If you select the source as DVD disc, then the software automatically detects the DVD disc inserted in your PC DVD drive. On the other hand, if the source is an ISO image or DVD folder, you need to browse and select the respective file from your PC.
You can now see the DVD video loaded in the software. You can edit the video by clicking the edit button.
Once the video is opened in the edit screen, you can make changes to the video by using the various tools available. You can add effects, take snapshot, trim or cut select portions of the video etc.
After selecting the DVD source, choose the output video format to which you like to rip the selected DVD movie. The software supports over 20 different video formats, 16 audio formats, 14 Web formats, and over 15 mobile devices.
You can also choose the preferred video quality of the output video. Please remember the higher the quality the slower is the conversion speed.
If you like to access the settings of the selected video format and modify them, then click on the settings button and try to edit. But it is highly advised that you access these settings only if you are an advanced user who has a strong proficiency in video editing.
Finally, select the output folder where you would like to save the ripped video in your PC.
Once everything is done, click on the Run button at the bottom to start the DVD ripping process. The time taken by the software for the DVD ripping process depends upon the size and the quality of the DVD disc. If it is a larger disc with high-quality video, eventually it takes more time to complete.
For me, it took around 15 minutes to rip a 15 minutes DVD video at the highest quality which seems to be very long.
For accessing the additional settings of the software, click on the options button at the top of the application window. Here, you can access some of the basic settings of the software.
For any help regarding how to use the software or finding ways to contact their support team, click on the help button at the top and choose the corresponding option.
