[Windows & Linux Tutorial] How to Use FFmpeg to Rip DVD to MP4, MKV, MOV, WebM, etc.

Aside from Linux, FFmpeg is now also available for Windows users. And if you are a Windows user and happen to have some DVDs in hand you prefer to rip, that would be pretty good news. Instead of the head-scratching standard FFmpeg CUI (command user interface), I have already found and will introduce you a great FFmpeg GUI (graphical user interface) that you can operate with ease.

Here’s a good FFmpeg alternative for ripping copy-protected DVDs, you can free download it if needed:

Part 1. Rip DVD with FFmpeg on Windows & Linux

Launch FFmpeg GUILaunch FFmpeg GUI

Step 1. Download and install FFmpeg GUI: FFmpegyag from SourceForge:

Step 2. Install the program, no worry, the program and its installation packs are both safe and clean.

Step 3. Insert the DVD you intend to rip into the DVD drive that is well-connected to your PC. If everything goes well, you’ll be able to enter the DVD folder from “DVD Drive” and open DVD Video_TS folder within.

Step 4. Run FFmpegyag, if a dialog pops up saying “Multiple video converters have been found in the application inventory. Please select your preferred video converter”, the one with “ffmpeg-h10-heaac” suffix stands for the full-featured version. The “ffmpeg.exe” one will be sufficient for our matter, select it and click “OK” to proceed.

Step 5. Click “Add Task(s)” button to add DVD movie into the program. But FFmpeg GUI doesn’t help to single out the main movie of your DVD, according to our experience, the largest VOB file with the longest length could be the main movie, select it to add into the program. If you have some digital DVD videos like VOB/ISO/VIDEO_TS, follow the exact procedure to convert them to MP4, MKV, etc. with FFmpeg.

Step 6. Crop/trim, transcode video/audio codec if needed.

Step 7. At the “Format” box, choose the preferred video format to rip DVD to. As you can see, Matroska, MP4, MOV, WebM, FLAC, OGG, MP3, AC3, WAV, MPEG, Image2, ASS, SRT are provided as output format.

Step 8. Go to the folder that you wish to save the output video, copy its address.

Step 9. At last, paste the address into the “File” box, then hit “Encode” to start the ripping process. Hit “Abort” anytime for second thoughts.
