We have turned into a multimedia consuming public. We cant wait to get our hands on music, video, and books. So much so, that we tend to create our own digital versions of DVDs when its not available on YouTube, Hulu, or Netflix. We “rip” our own movie DVDs for us to consume on all of our devices, PCs to laptops to iPhones. Enter WinX DVD Ripper.
The WinX DVD ripper is a great application for ripping DVDs to almost any platform and device you can think of, from Apple TV to the Zune. It can rip DVD to .mov,. avi, .flv, .wmv, MPEG and MP4. Devices include DVD to iPhone, iPod, iPad, PSP, Zune, and mobile phone. You name it, it will handle it. It can also rip DVD audio to an MP3 file, so really can just listen to the movie. Even CNET gives it their seal of approval.
