dvd to svcd, dvd to mpeg2 converter

In this guide we will explain how to convert DVD to MPEG-2 / SVCD format and burn it to a CD.

AoA DVD RIPPER provides a fast and easy way to convert your DVD movies or just the parts of the movie that you want. It copies in high quality AVI (DivX, XviD...), WMV (Pocket PC, Zune...), MP4 (iPod, PSP...), 3GP, Flash Video (*.flv), VCD (MPEG-1) and SVCD (MPEG-2) formats. It also extracts audio tracks from DVD movies.

Tips before we get started:

  • Turn OFF your Screen Saver, it will simply slow the conversion down by hours.
  • Do not run any other program in the background while AoA DVD Ripper is running, especially if you have a slower computer.
  • Re-boot the computer just BEFORE you start the ripping, in this way you have the best conditions as possible. Do not under estimate this step, I find it essential to guarantee a 100% perfect encode.
