    Hi.

    I need a good DVD converter that will work on a P4 single core and that can convert DVD to .AVI format.

    I want to transfer all my movies into .AVI mode and put them in an external HDD so I can bring it anywhere and also plug it into the usb media port reader on my TV.

    Thank you.

    Must be you as it loads fine for me, though there is a message at the bottom of the page reading

    "This app is basically outdated now... although it still works, it has known issues (dropping frames being the most common) and it can cause problems with A/V synch among other things.

    Highly recommended to use DGMPGDec instead, which is the same program with a bunch of bug fixes."

    None of them have worked DVD decrypter popped me a lot of windows tellings about errors.

    I used many years ago a dvd converter that convert from dvd right to .avi or mp4. No time to lose by decrypteing and reburning after.

    I cant remember the program.

    Seems good but this thing is little bit technical.

    Show me simply how to take a DVD and put it in .AVI. Can you do that for me?

    Thank you I really appreciate.

    CUDA Support can give you faster reencoding speeds since the program uses the GPU or a combination of GPU / CPU
    Todays GPU´s are fast enough to do such work by their own

    what u need to know directly, coz mainly all programs are self explanatory

    another very good solution is (my fav):

    TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5

    also it supports CUDA as well:

    NVIDIA® CUDA™
    H.264/AVC decoding and encoding support

    I just need a simple software without 36 millions options. That's simple. enter dvd movie, click on a button and it convert from dvd to .AVI then save it onto my computer. I don't need all these options and processing choices. DVD to .AVI. THAT'S ALL !!! Is there any software doing it ?

    there are many Progs out there, the easy Software are not always as good( not sync, framerates, audio) as the titles mentioned here so, u might need to investigate more to your needs , give em a try and you´ll see that they are easy to use even with the PRO features ;)


    for TMPGEnc there are many presets(Avi, mpg, widescreen, 4:3.......) out there so just load the preset, insert DVD/Bluray get some coffee and you done

    more about encoding, tips, HowTo´s

    If you can find badaboom, that is really, REALLY simple and can utilize your cuda cores as well. I know they have stopped making new versions of it though. I generally use badaboom or handbrake when i convert videos.

    DVDfab is that easy. Just pop your disc in, choose the .avi option and where you want to save it, hit start. I highly recommend it.

    Free video converter failed. Always blocking and closing the program.

    DVDfab seems to be nice but instead of unzipping all the disk they check only one square and give to other squres random titles like we are supposed to know what video or audio part of the dvd it is. But it did work at least.

    Are you sure that the applications are failing? More often than not with what you want to do, simple isn't always better. Also DVD Decrypter has done great on most DVDs for me, even back when I was running XP. Are you sure the tools are failing and not the DVD itself? A scratched DVD could throw errors left and right without it being the fault of the utility.

    Hahaha. You're funny. We're talking about transcoding audio and video, of course it's going to give you a million options. It's video. Also honestly, it's not a lot of options, it's all stuff you need if you're going to make a dvd a format that you want. Also to describe how you don't know what you're talking about, you say you just want to turn a DVD in to a .AVI. The problem with that statement is AVI (like MKV ) is only a audio/video container. It has nothing to do with how the video or audio are encoded, but rather how they're stored in the file.

    So instead of trying to dumb something complex down to something simple. Why not just take the time to learn what it does rather than being in a rush?

    Have you considered saving your dvd's as .iso files? Playback is just like a dvd and most newer electronic devices play them.
