2. Star Features
Decrypt DVD/Blu-ray Movie
All of the commercial DVD/Blu-ray discs have the protection. If you want to convert the DVD/Blu-ray disc to the MP4, MKV, etc., you need to remove the protection from the disc before converting the disc to another common video file. VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper has excellent performance to do that (This feature needs the internet connection).
Various Output Formats
According to the official website, VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper supports 150+ video/audio formats. But we think that the 150+ video/audio formats actually refer to the 150+ presets. The “preset” means a set of settings for a specific format or device.
All the presets are divided into 3 categories: Video, Audio and Device. And there is also a category named “Recently Used” that can help you quick find the preset you used recently.
When you want to transfer the DVD/Blu-ray movie to a portable device for enjoying, you can directly specify a device model as the output format to save the time for choosing a suitable format. VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper even provides extra subcategories for some device.
Fast Ripping Speed (GPU Acceleration Support)
Actually, the ripping speed is not very fast, but is acceptable in this series of software. The ripping speed is related with several factors, such as the state of the source disc, the computer performance and the parameters of output format. It’s difficult to give a result.
In addition, the Windows version has GPU acceleration support. It means while decoding the DVD or Blu-ray disc, the program can utilize the GPU power to speed up the process. VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper uses NVIDIA NVENC, NVIDIA CUDA and Intel QSV technologies to speed up conversion process. And, GPU Acceleration only applies for H264 encoder and H265 encoder.
Audio Track & Subtitle Selection
The program can preserve all the audio tracks when ripping the DVD/Blu-ray movie to digital file. You can also select the audio tracks as per your need.
However, you can only keep 1 forced subtitle in the ripped video file.
Tip: The Windows version of VideoSolo BD-DVD Ripper provides “Lossless MKV” output. With the “Lossless MKV” output format, you can keep all the subtitles in the ripped video file.
A basic video editor is provided after your imported the movie to the program. There are few editing options including cropping, trimming, adding the watermark, adjusting the effect and rotation.
There is a build-in media player which is handy for a preview before you start the conversion.
