• How to rip CSS-protected DVD to AVI format for DVD backup?

    Posted on January 11th, 2010 Maky | No comments

    First of all, to rip CSS-protected DVD to AVI format is possible with DVD decrypter program, but is confined to legal use of the DVD only. CSS-protection measure has long been the practice for preventing commercial DVDs from being copied to hard disk or cloned to reproduction. But we are allowed to use DVD decrypter to clone our expensive store bought CSS-protected DVD for DVD backup. As for DVD backup, it only makes sense to rip DVD to a format with DVD-like quality, smaller size and high portability. So this is why we are going to rip DVD to AVI format for the best DVD backup effort.

    Normally, we need a DVD decrypter and a DVD converter to accomplish the task. But now we have an integrated program with comprehensible interface. It is called Leawo DVD Ripper.

    Leawo DVD Ripper is highly compatible with any CSS-protected DVD. CSS-protected DVD will be recognized and automatically decrypted without our interference. So let’s focus on how to rip DVD to AVI format in high quality, that is, DVD-like quality, smaller size and high portability.

    Here is the Download link to the software. Need more checkups, please visit the DVD Ripper‘s page.

    This is a very comprehensible DVD decrypter/ripper program. Feed the CSS-protected DVD in the DVD-ROM drive and use the "Load DVD" function on the program main interface. Then you will see the complete titles and chapters rolled out on the list more or less like the screenshot below.

    Click open the "Profile" dropdown box, navigate to "Common Video" to make a choice on AVI profiles. We are going to use "Xvid Movie (*.avi)" profile, for the DVD-like picture quality and excellent sound quality. Based on MPEG-4 compression, it can guarantee the best ratio of quality to file size. As Xvid is an open-source codec, Xvid encoded AVI video is highly portable to be played on other PC easily.

    Then click "Settings" to open codec control. You will see a list of codec parameters: Video Codec, Quality, Bit Rate, Video Size, Frame Rate, Aspect Ratio, etc.

    There are quite a number of parameters set to "auto". It means to program will conduct the Xvid encoding with optimal settings. For beginners, this is a very handy design. But for veterans, it might not be enough to meet your picky demands. So let’s explore the optimal settings for ourselves and gain a better understanding of how the DVD to Xvid AVI conversion works. I am going to manifest the difference among the settings of Bit Rate, the key factor which influences the video quality and file size, by a field-test experiment. Feel compelled to follow me?

    In this experiment, I will rip a 9 second segment of DVD to Xvid AVI in different Bit Rate settings. It is a repetitive action and I think it makes more sense to jump to the conclusion now.

    It is all right if this conclusive data table confuses you. It got me, too, in some senses. LOL. What is behind these data is an equation: File Size = (Video Bit Rate + Audio Bit Rate) * duration /8. If you are perceptive, you would notice this is not an accurate equation and there is small discrepancy between the custom video Bit Rate and the actual video Bit Rate. It is because the Video Bit Rate is vibrant but constant. The actual Video Bit Rate reflects the average of Video Bit Rate. The longer duration of the video is converted, the more approximate the actual Video Bit Rate is to the custom Video Bit Rate.

    Take a 2 hour DVD movie for example, you can be assured to count on the custom Video Bit Rate, say 600, with 128kbps Audio Bit Rate to come up with a 650MB AVI video. ((600+128)*7200/8=655200) By doing this, you have reduced the 4GB DVD movie to 1/6 in size!

    Of course, DVD backup won’t be a valuable one if it doesn’t have DVD-like picture quality. Take a look at the comparison of the screenshots from 600Kbps Video Bit Rate setting, Low Profile, Medium Profile and High Profile.

    Click the links to view the screenshots in full size 720*406.

    600Kbps and Low Profile have just been crossed off because of interior picture quality, while Medium Profile and High Profile are almost the same. If you take the 1.5 times file size multiplication lightly, High Quality Profile is your best choice. Otherwise, Medium Profile is the optimal choice for ripping DVD to Xvid AVI format for DVD backup, with good balance of video quality and file size.

    In conclusion, rip CSS-protected DVD to Xvid format with Medium Profile in Leawo DVD Ripper is the optimal choice for DVD backup. However, this article encourages you to look deeper into the video conversion and use the DVD decrypter/ripper program well. It gives you a picture of how picture quality is in connection with Video Bit Rate. Try to experiment with any Bit Rate setting you want, then you can get the most desirable DVD backup copy of your CSS-protected DVD!

  • How to get my video file smaller with Leawo Video Converter?

    Posted on October 12th, 2009 Maky | No comments

    Leawo Video Converter is a suitable tool to convert between all kinds of videos while it can help you adjust the videos to a desired size, say smaller file for space saving. It involves the knowledge on codec settings, a set of essential parameters for the task. It is easy to learn after all and here is a step by step guide on how to reduce the size of your video file with Leawo Video Converter.

    Step 1, load the videos into Leawo Video Converter for processing. It accepts more than a score of popular video formats, so there is no worry for incompatibility.

    Step 2, select a profile for the file you selected. More than 100 profiles, with reference to common video formats and particular terminal formats, are in crisp order. You may judge on the file extension and the description for one that matches your need.

    Step 3, assuming you have assigned a 3GP profile, then click “Settings” to open codec settings panel. There is a full list of codec settings, dividing into two parts, for you to make distinct differences.

    Video Codec: it is to determine which arithmetic to use in encoding the video. If you have ever uploaded videos to YouTube, you should be acquainted with YouTube’s recommendations on uploaded video format, which are H.264, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. Leawo Video Converter has many codec plugins to cover most picky demands.

    Quality: it specifies how much the video quality is to preserve after conversion. High quality usually brings good details on screen with the only holdback of large file size. It is recommended for video backup or broadcasting. When you want to view the video on small screen or memory-tight terminals, low quality is the best choice.

    Bit Rate: it describes the bits per second in the video stream, reflects the video quality and video size in number form.

    Video Size: namely the actual resolution of the video display in full size.

    Frame Rate: it gives the idea of the frames per second in the video stream. A smooth video usually adapts a frame rate higher than 24. If the video contains mostly intense shots, a higher frame rate is required. Otherwise, you can lower the frame rate and reduce redundant frames in a slow motion video.

    Aspect Ratio: it affects the display style on your player. 4:3 is preferred aspect ratio for TV or standard CRT screen, while 16:9 is often favored by wide screen LCD screen.

    Audio Codec: same to video codec, except it is dedicated to audio. A moderate choice is MP3 for its widespread popularity around cyberspace. AAC features a better performance in a smaller file size, preferred on memory-tight cell phones or PMPs. AMR is the best choice for carrying voice because of its slim body, but not suitable for music enjoyment.

    Quality: same as video.

    Bit Rate: same as video. Usually a video file would contain both video stream and audio stream, so the total bit rate will be the sum of video bit rate and audio bit rate.

    Sample Rate: a factor that determines the details of audio. It goes the same as Frame Rate.

    Channels: an audio stream can be single channel (mono), double channel (stereo) or even 5.1 channel (surrounding). It can be easily determined by how many sub sound boxes you have in your audio system.

    There are some important rules to follow before you start the conversion.

    1. do not apply a profile with parameters higher than the present of your video file. It simply doesn’t improve the quality but results in unnecessarily larger file.

    2. the higher is not always the better. For example, you might experience frame drop while watching H.264 videos on your PMP but not the case with MPEG-4. The reason is that your PMP is not strong enough in decoding advanced but complicated format like H.264, so you have to make do with MPEG-4 or MPEG-2.

    3. better not raise too high on frame rate, sample rate and bit rate. Blind pursuit for higher figure does not guarantee a better result, but increase the possibility of low efficiency, such as redundant frames and bloated file size.

    After absorbing quite an amount of knowledge on codec settings, you must eager to practice for the very first time on your own. Leawo Video Converter provides comfortable experience during conversion, such as batch converting and after done actions, brings the task easier and faster to its goal.

    Leawo Video Converter is now on promotion with a big discount, which is a real boon to all users. Anyone seeking an all-in-one converting solution would be remiss to not check it out.

    Do you want to make your video look sharp and clear and get rid of the dull color and dark scene? We certainly can do it with a handful of softwares, like the famous Adobe Premier and Sony Vegas. Although these video edit softwares are very strong in doing everything with the videos, they may be too down to the details in edit functions to accommodate simple and quick enhancement on videos. Now you have a light-weight video editor, Leawo Video Converter, to manage it for you. It is a slim and neat video converter, but can suit the need to better video effects in the easiest way. You can adjust the brightness, contrast, audio volume and even deinterlace your videos with Leawo Video Converter, and convert the videos to any format you like via its dedicated feature in video conversion.
