Rip DVD with HandBrake on Windows 10

By WinX

DVD ripping is the process of extracting entire or selected contents from a DVD onto another storage drive.

It’s a vital process, especially if you use DVD rippers to backup or shift your data from one system to another. Therefore, it cannot be trusted to just any DVD ripping software.

Now that DVDs are becoming obsolete, DVD ripping software has become more important than ever before. However, countless DVD rippers for Windows 10 aren’t built adequately. They don’t transfer data “as is”, which can lead to major problems later on.

It’s crucial to pick the best DVD ripper for Windows 10. A popular software application used today is HandBrake, which is reliable but has some limitations that can cause problems while ripping DVDs.

The best alternative to HandBrake, and by extension, the top DVD ripper for Windows 10 is WinX DVD Ripper.

In this post, we’ll explore how to rip DVDs with HandBrake, why it can’t rip some DVDs, how to fix its errors, and why WinX DVD ripper is the best alternative to HandBrake!

How To Rip DVDs With HandBrake?

HandBrake is always used as the tool to convert video format. Actually most of the users have no idea that this tool can be used as the DVD ripping program. If you have no idea how to complete the task, just follow the tutorial to use HandBrake on Windows.

To rip a DVD with HandBrake, start by downloading and installing the software for Windows 10. In case you want to rip copy-protected DVDs, also download the libdvdcss library.

Then, load the DVD you want to rip into your Windows 10 device and launch HandBrake. If your DVD is inserted successfully, HandBrake will automatically show it in the source selection list.

Click on the DVD source and HandBrake will start scanning all its contents.

HandBrake automatically selects a title for you, but you can select your title using the dropdown menu. Within each title, all chapters are selected by default. But you can choose to select specific chapters as well.

Once you’ve selected all the titles and chapters you wish to rip, you can choose the format in which you want to rip the DVD. Everything from resolution specifications to platform-based selection is provided in HandBrake.

If you go for faster ripping, you’ll sacrifice some quality, as higher quality ripping requires more time.

Finally, you specify the destination folder where the DVD contents will be ripped and hit the “Start Encode” button. That’s it!

Why HandBrake Won’t Rip DVD and How to Fix the Errors?

While HandBrake is great in general, there are some types of DVDs it just can’t rip.

Even the latest versions of HandBrake can’t individually rip copy-protected DVDs, which is the most common error while ripping DVDs with HandBrake. To fix this, you need to install VLC or libdvdcss. Even then, HandBrake often can’t rip your DVDs.

Another major reason why you can run into errors while ripping with HandBrake is corrupted or scratched CDs. The only way to fix this error is by using a better ripper that has some resilience towards scratched CDs, such as Winx. However, if a CD is severely damaged, you cannot fix this as it's physical damage.

Why WinX is the Best DVD Ripper Alternative to HandBrake

If you’re looking for an easy, hassle-free, and quick DVD ripping software for Windows 10 that doesn’t run into errors and doesn’t need any external libraries, WinX DVD Ripper is your way to go!

Not only is WinX reliable, but it comes with 350+ profiles that allow you to convert DVD into MP4, AVI, MWV, any format you can dream of!

You can easily backup and rip DVDs of any type to MP4 (HEVC/H.264) format in just 5 minutes and shrink DVDs up to 80% while maintaining a 1:1 quality ratio!

WinX DVD Ripper doesn’t need external libraries such as libdvdcss to rip copy-protected DVDs.

But the best part is, WinX is the only DVD ripper to reach level-3 hardware acceleration. This allows your GPU to power your DVD ripping, and it doesn’t affect your graphics quality while ripping! It makes ripping DVDs faster while maintaining higher quality.

Furthermore, the ripped files can be viewed on platforms such as Xbox, iOS, and even PlayStation, making WinX the best DVD ripper for Windows 10.

WinX DVD Ripper makes ripping DVDs faster, easier, and more reliable!
