I am a long user of different DVD ripping software, but I’m a big fan of WonderFox. I have reviews for WonderFox DVD Video Converter and WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro and I want to thank them for the great software. Although I have some tips on how to rip Wondefox DVD Ripper Pro, there is no review for it. It is time for me to do a Wonderfox DVD Ripper Pro review and fully introduce this smart DVD ripping software to all of you.
You guys are able to visit WonderFox’s homepage or download WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro via the below buttons:
I have a large collection of DVDs and I use different DVD rippers to rip DVDs, just because none of them seem to be perfect and luck one or more features I need or don’t satisfy me in some point. Actually what I am looking for is quite easy and I have listed some of the most important features I need:
1. The DVD ripper must be able to rip homemade AND commercially purchased and protected DVDs. You probably know that the DVDs you purchased from Disney, Pixar, Paramount, etc are specially encrypted, it is important for a DVD ripper to be able to handle those DVDs. One more thing I found interesting is, home-made DVDs are giving me trouble in ripping. They are NOT protected but were created by different programs.
2. Quality. Most of the DVD rippers advertise they are able to rip DVDs to HDD without any quality loss. Well, I doubt that. But my DVD rippers must be able to maintain video quality as much as possible.
3. Speed. I don’t think I can stand a ripping takes ages. Averagely, I am able to rip a 90-minute DVD in just 15-20 minutes.
Let’s see how WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro works for us.

The DVD Ripper for Protected DVDs
The majority of DVDs are copy-protected. As far as I can see, there are different copy protections like DVD CSS, Region Code, Multi-angle, RCE, Sony ARccOS, UOP, Disney X-project DRM, and Cinavia. The most commonly used protection I have ever come across are DVD CSS, Region Code, Disney X-project DRM, and Cinavia. DVDs from BBC and Beachbody are also commonly seen by me but I am not sure what they belong to.
With WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro, all those copy protections are removed during your DVD ripping.
For example, for DVDs that are CSS and region code protected, you are not able to watch them as if they are scratched. But the ripped copy to any video format by WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is perfect.
Disney X-project DRM and Cinavia seem to be specially designed by DVD ripping from being copied. Disney X-project DRM-protected DVDs usually give you up to 99 titles with a majority of them in the same length. Other DVD rippers may fail to detect the right title and your ripped copy would come out in a bad sequence. Cinavia protected DVDs seem to be copied perfectly but when you play the copies, there is no sound. WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro removes Cinavia protection as well and gives you a perfect backup with great sound and you are able to increase DVD sound by up to 200%.
Unlike commercially purchased DVDs, home-made DVDs may also give you trouble. They are not actually protected but were created by different programs with different standards that DVD rippers are not familiar with. With over 9 years in developing, WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro learns from different burning and authoring programs and is fully compatible with the DVDs they create, making you no worries to copy and digitalize those homemade DVDs.
The Fastest DVD Ripper
What do you guys think is the fastest way to copy a DVD to your hard drive on a PC? There are a lot of DVD rippers over the whole web, but the fastest one that I have ever tried is WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro.
I am running Windows 10 on a second-generation i7 CPU with 8 GB of RAM. Not a really powerful machine but it is able to do all my stuff, working, learning, and DVD ripping with no problem. So, I have a test on how long it will take on my machine to rip this DVD, Toy Story 3, old but one of my kids’ favorite. It’s about 100 minutes long and we will see how much time it will take to rip this DVD.
To be able to rip DVDs in the fastest possible way, I’d like to recommend this Main Title Copy in 1:1 Quick Copy mode. Then we just have to click Run.
It just takes about 10 minutes for a DVD backup to the hard drive. That’s amazing, isn’t it? It really is for an 8-year old computer to do so. WonderFox advertises it’s able to rip DVDs in just 5 minutes. I think it is possible but make sure your computer is powerful enough and a 16x DVD drive is also important.
I have a detailed guide on how to rip DVDs fastest with WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro, check here.
Profiles and Quality
When I was ripping DVDs, I generally need three or four profiles for my iPhone, iPad, Samsung smart TV and Galaxy S9. But WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro provides you over 300+ profiles. Anyone who wants to rip DVDs to devices is able to find a perfect profile for Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Google, LG, Amazon, Sony, HTC, Blackberry, Lenovo, Motorola, Huawei, etc. You are also able to rip DVDs to general Video formats like MP4, WMV, MKV, AVI etc and to formats that are compatible with the web like HTML5, YouTube, Vimeo etc. Look at the abundant profiles from WonderFox:
Each profile comes as Smart Fit and gives a really good result. But you are always free to customize each profile in FPS, Bitrate, Resolution, Codec etc and save it as your own.
The output video quality is what I am concerned about more. With WonderFox’s 1:1 Quick Copy, you are able to get a 1:1 quality output in MPG, ISO, and DVD VIDEO_TS folder. If you don’t concern about the file size, those three profiles are perfect to go with great video quality and fast ripping speed.
If you want to find a balance between the file size, video quality, and compatibility, MP4 H.264 or H.265 is what I’d like to recommend. While MP4 H.264 is more compatible with your devices like PCs, phones, tablets, PS4, etc, MP4 H.265 comes with an even smaller video size but a great compression rate yet great video quality. You can set the encoder as shown above.
WonderFox DVD Video Converter or WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro?
As far as I can see, WonderFox seems to integrate HD Video Converter Factory Pro with the DVD Ripper Pro and makes WonderFox DVD Video Converter be able to rip DVDs and convert videos. The only difference between the converter and ripper seems to be the “Input File Format” which the two programs accept. WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro only accepts DVDs as the input, while HD Video Converter Factory Pro supports various other formats including AVI, MP4, MTS/M2TS, AVCHD EXCEPT for DVDs.
So, if you just want to rip DVDs, WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is able to meet your needs. If you want to convert videos or download online videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, etc, go for WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro. If both, WonderFox DVD Video Converter is absolutely your top choice.
