DVD ripping makes people conveniently backup DVDs in a digital way. However, many people are frustrated that they have got inferior output quality or incomplete file data after ripping a DVD. So how to achieve lossless DVD ripping? This article will show you an efficient solution.
We can easily find a free tool loaded with DVD ripping capacity on the network, for instance, Handbrake and MakeMKV, which are the most-used programs for users to digitize DVDs. Typically, during the ripping process, re-encoding occurs and there will be data loss to different degrees. The loss may be highly visible or imperceptible based upon the output formats you choose and the program you use. However, for people who stick to original content, lossless DVD ripping is the first consideration. If you’re one of them, you can follow the information below for implementing more efficient process according to your actual demands.
WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is an advanced DVD ripping program for Windows. Marked by fast and straightforward operation, it can deal with any DVDs, rapidly convert DVDs to over 500 formats and devices, and create exact copy of DVD movies without quality and data loss.
Lossless DVD ripping doesn’t refer to ripping a DVD to lossless video or audio format. As practically all standard DVDs adopt the lossy MPEG-2 compression method to store video data, it is useless to convert DVDs to lossless formats. Typically, when it comes to lossless DVD ripping, there is no re-encoding or compression during the process. In other words, the output file is still encoded with the MPEG-2 standard instead of using the popular H.264 or H.265 compression standards that result in compressed outputs. Therefore, if you want to convert a DVD to digital movie file without any compression or quality loss and play it on most of your devices, we recommend that you can convert DVD to MPG MPEG-2.
At the same time, some people hope to rip their DVDs with all original content included - chapter menus, main movie, all titles, multiple audio and subtitle tracks, etc. In order to achieve this purpose, ripping these DVDs to ISO images or Video_TS folders is the best solution. An ISO image or DVD folder contains the complete duplicates of content of an optical disc, including file system information. By this way, you can not only play the flawless content, but also burn the ISO image or Video_TS folder into a new blank disc to create a 1:1 physical backup.
Generally, you can rip DVD to MPEG-2, ISO image, or Video_TS folder to keep original quality and content. And these three options are suitable for different usages as mentioned above. Having known the basic formation on lossless DVD ripping, we need a good DVD ripping software to carry out the ripping task. Let’s move to the next part.
