iMacsoft Free DVD Ripper For Windows is The Best You Can Get For Free

iMacsoft Free DVD Ripper is a totally free DVD ripping program for Windows with features usually seen only in commercial products.

I have reviewed a fair number of DVD ripping programs in the past – a majority of them happens to be paid software. When compared to freeware DVD ripping programs, the commercial programs always had an edge over the free ones. They always had a better interface, had exhaustive support for media file formats and built in profiles for different portable devices and media players. I was eager to see a free DVD ripper that was at least half as decent as the paid ones.

iMacsoft Free DVD Ripper is not half as decent – it’s a full replacement for every expensive DVD ripping program out there. The software comes with fantastic support for portable devices, user configurable video settings, a video trimming tool, and other features which we shall see shortly.

iMacsoft Free DVD Ripper can rip videos from either a physical disc, a disc image or a DVD folder on the hard drive. Just load the DVD or DVD folder into the program and it will automatically list all available titles and chapters on the disc. If the disc contains multiple angles, a feature typically found on porn DVDs, you can extract them too. No other DVD ripping program that I’ve tried till date offered this function.

The next step would be to select the output video format. These are grouped into common video, common audio, iPhone, iPad, PS2, PS3, mobile phone, Windows mobile etc. Each of these groups contain multiple different formats. Practically, all video formats are supported.

If you intend on ripping a DVD and burning it again on to a disk, you can choose to split the video file into 650 MB, 700 MB, 4.7 GB or any custom sized chunks. The video trimming tool lets you set a start and end position on the video file, and only the marked segment will be ripped. This is useful to get rid of advertisement at the beginning of the video and end credits at the end. This in turn reduces the file size of the ripped video.

You can also choose the zoom level – letterbox, pan and scan or full.

On the left, is a small preview window which is basically a video player that lets you preview the video files before ripping. Above the preview window, you will find the video settings. These can be directly clicked on and edited. You can change the video size, bit rate, aspect ration, frame rate, and quality (variable or constants bit rate).

Once you have gone through the above steps, all that remains is to click on the red button to commence ripping.

  2. Seems like the site tried to spam/advertise their products on Macworld.com's forum. Aside from that, there is nothing malicious on the site. And the product itself is great.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
