Before getting a DVD to WMV ripper, we should firstly know why we should rip DVD video to WMV.
The first reason is about the DVD video itself, as we know, DVD videos are encrypted by the CSS copy protection, so sometimes we can not copy the content of the DVD videos to our PC, notebook, Windows Movie maker or some other devices to enjoy them, edit them or backup them. And, DVD video format can not be accepted by a lot of digital devices especially for some portable devices like your Zune, Xbox 360, Blackberry and so on, so if you want to play DVD videos, your devices must have a DVD hard drive and must accept the DVD video format.
The second reason is about the WMV video format, WMV is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. It is widely used and can offer users with high quality videos. There are a lot of devices or software that can support WMV videos like your PC, Windows Movie maker, notebook, and portable devices like Zune, Xbox 360, Blackberry and so on. So, if we can rip DVD video to WMV, which means we can crack the CSS copy protection of DVD videos and break the video format limitation of DVD videos, and then we can edit our DVD videos in our Windows Movie maker, play our DVD videos on our Zune, Xbox 360, Blackberry and so on, backup our DVD videos on our PC, notebook, or some other digital devices.
