Wondershare DVD Ripper Platinum can be used to convert a DVD to an HD video. To use this piece of software, you insert a DVD into your hard drive. Then, from the options, you will select "Profile" and then click on HD Video. From there, you have the option of converting the video into files such as MP4, AVI, MOV and WMV. At that point, you also have some other options, such as the ability to edit or modify the video file.
While the quality of the video on a DVD is decent, it does not compare to that of a high definition video file. If you have a DVD that you would like to convert to an HD video, several options are available for your consideration. A number of software programs can be used for this purpose.
Pavtube DVD Ripper
Pavtube DVD Ripper makes all its tools and functions visible on the primary screen. It is not a free program and can be purchased for a one-time fee. You simply click on the "Format" drop-down box and you can choose the type of format you want. For example, the HD AVI file allows you to create an HD video from your DVD file. This program supports file types such as MKV, MOV, MP4, WMV and TS. Once you have the options you want, simply click the "Convert" button at the bottom right.
ZC DVD to HDTV Converter
ZC DVD to HDTV Converter is available on Softpedia as a free program. Like the Pavtube DVD Ripper program, almost everything you need is situated on the primary user screen. You get to choose the type of format that you would like to convert your video to and then you click the "Start" button down at the bottom right portion of the screen. The available formats for this program include MP4, AVI, TS, MOV, ASF and H.264.
When using one of these pieces of software, it is important to make sure that your computer has the appropriate requirements to run it. If your computer does not have enough random access memory or RAM, it may struggle to get the conversion done in a timely manner. This has the potential to bog your computer down and make it difficult to do anything else while the video conversion is taking place. When this happens, you'll need to reserve enough time for the conversion to take place on your computer.
