Trial limited version available
Unfortunately, you can only use WinX DVD Ripper Platinum without restrictions if you have a paid license. While you can find a trial version that you can download and try for free, it does come with some limitations.
It’s not exactly clear what the limitations are, but one thing we’re sure of. You can only convert up to 5 minutes’ worth of content from any source material, whether it’s a physical disc, an ISO image, or a DVD folder on your PC we’re talking about.
While there’s no time restriction imposed on the trial, you might expect to find other limitations, such as watermarks.
Installation is easy as pie
Whether you’re tech-savvy or a complete novice, installing WinX DVD Ripper Platinum on your PC will feel like a walk in the park. There’s no complicated configuration that you need to do, and there’s also a wizard that will guide you through the process step by step.
Assuming that you managed to retrieve the installer executable, go ahead and launch it. After running it, all you need to do is accept the license agreement, decide upon a destination path, change shortcut creation settings and click the Install button.
Once the setup’s done, you’ll be asked if you want WinX DVD Ripper Platinum to launch automatically post-installation.
Intuitive user interface
WinX DVD Ripper Platinum comes with a straightforward user interface and intuitive features. You don’t have to waste too much time figuring out the functionality of each button since they’re quite self-explanatory.
The top menu consists of large buttons that let you import content, clear the list of files, or access the app’s configuration screen. The central part of the window is actually a list of imported content.
There’s also a playback screen on the right, under which you can find some advanced settings. Last, but not least, you can find a destination path selector at the bottom of the screen.
How to properly use WinX DVD Ripper Platinum
If you’ve decided to digitalize your DVDs, the first step you’ll need to take is importing content. Based on your needs, import a DVD disc, an ISO image, or a folder, by using the appropriate buttons.
Once you’ve managed to bring the source file into the app, select an output format. You can also change these settings, but there are several formats you can choose from. Thus, you might not need to perform additional configuration, after all.
Choose a destination path by using the menu at the bottom of the screen. Make sure you have plenty of space since the content can take anywhere up to 40 GBs (99-title DVDs). When you’re satisfied with the configuration, hit the RUN button and wait.
Handy DVD ripper tool
All in all, if you need a tool that can help you extract content from video DVDs, ISOs or DVD folders, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum might be exactly what you need. It provides you with a broad range of output formats, and presets, and it lets you perform light editing on the content, too.
While this is a product premium, which means you have to pay if you want to use it, there’s a free trial available. However, it can’t convert more than 5 minutes from each source file, so you can’t exactly use it long term.
