Disc to Digital: Our pick of the best DVD ripping method you can try this year


Speaking of Disc to Digital, people may think of VUDU and WinX DVD Ripper as the primary means, how about we only compare the two methods.

VUDU launched a new feature called Mobile Disc to Digital that allows users to convert Blu-Ray and DVDs to digital straight from iOS or Android smartphones and tablets. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a highly appreciated and used DVD to digital converter with more than 12 years’ development.

Compatible platforms

VUDU’s Mobile Disc to Digital is compatible with Android and iOS, but it’s also important to mention that it’s not supported by the iOS app. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is a desktop-based software that is compatible with Windows 10 and older versions of the OS and Mac, version 10.13 High Sierra and older versions. If you prefer working on mobiles, stick with VUDU and if you like computer work, stick with the WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.

Supported discs

VUDU’s Mobile Disc to Digital supports DVD and Blu-ray, and Disney discs are not currently supported which is not the best thing considering that it includes about 8,000 big movies and you may fail to digitize some discs with the mainstream titles.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is specially created for DVD conversion, be it Workout, old/damaged, home-made DVDs, protected DVDs or even ISO images and DVD folders. It supports DVDs from all film studios which of course include Disney as well. It can also convert various DVDs that apply special encryption technologies or damaged DVDs, defeating almost all DVD rippers on the market.

DVD conversion and download speed

VUDU can finish the whole process of conversion really quickly if you don’t encounter errors on the way. If you plan to download converted digitals for offline playback, it may take longer because the program relies on your Internet connection.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is the first and only DVD  ripper that utilizes level-3 hardware acceleration, the unique hardware processing technology powered by Intel  (QSV) and NVIDIA  (CUDA/NVENC) makes full use of your computer hardware resources to improves the disc to Digital speed at least 50%, even if your computer is old or low-end.  Moreover, it guarantees almost original output quality and smallest possible output file size, and also consumes low CPU so that you can watch movies or play games at the same time.
