I really need some recommendations on what DVD ripping software I should be using. I’m working on project right now (a project that’s been in the works for longer than I’d like to admit) and the DVD ripping software I’ve been using isn’t cutting it. I’ve used MakeMKV at first, which seems to rip blu-rays near perfectly, but presents video stuttering issues when ripping DVDs, so it’s just didn’t work out. After MakeMKV fell through, I started using Handbrake’s disk ripper only to find that it created jagged edges on the lines and gives the audio a harsh ‘glassy’ quality with ‘S’ sounds, even when I set the audio to a reasonably high bitrate.
I’m about a year into the project’s current incarnation, edited together about 22 hours worth of content, but I’m willing to jettison all that work (again…) if I can make it better from a video/audio quality standpoint. Obviously, I want the output files to be near perfect recreations of what’s on the disk. Also obviously, I would like to spend the least amount to get this software if possible. It should also probably go without saying that the ripper should bypass copy-protection. The disks I am ripping are very much protected, so that feature is a must.
If anyone can help, I’d be very grateful.
