If you've wanted a simple tool for making backups of your DVD's or copying those that you've made yourself or for watching on your iPod and other mobile devices, then AVCWare Mac DVD Converter is a powerful and simple solution.
AVCWare Mac DVD Converter enables you to rip your DVD movies to MPEG, AVI, WMV, DivX, MP4, H.264/AVC, RM, MOV and 3GP videos. It also allows you to rip the audio alone to MP3, WAV, WMA and AAC audio formats. It even allows you to do a little mix and matching by cropping segments and merge several files into one. You can also grab freeze frames of your favorite scenes and save them as images.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to open automatically when you enter a DVD so you have to browse the DVD that you've entered to allow it to find the files on the disk. When you've done so, AVCWare Mac DVD Converter will verify the files and then display what can be ripped from the disk. You can preview each in the preview screen. There are several conversion profiles to choose from which is what's really great about AVCWare Mac DVD Converter - just select whether you want to watch the footage on an iPod, Apple TV, PS3, PSP, etc and off you go.
AVCWare Mac DVD Converter provides Mac users with an elegant interface and an extremely easy way of ripping DVDs to preset formats.
