Take That, DVD CCA: 12 Ways to Rip DVDs
By Julie Jacobson
The courts and DVD CCA prefer users rip DVDs using software from overseas, rather than legitimate movie servers like Kaleidescape. So then, here are your options.

Kaleidescape, maker of one of the most expensive DVD movie servers on the planet, has lost its legal battle with the DVD CCA, licensor of the Content Scramble System (CSS) required of all (legitimate) DVD players.

The Santa Clary County court found that Kaleidescape breached its CSS licensing agreement with the DVD CCA and punished the manufacturer with a severe injunction that prohibits the sale of its DVD servers, and the support of servers already in the field (although Kaleidescape CEO Michael Malcolm says the ban on tech-support is limited only to issues regarding CSS).



So it seems the DVD CCA - and the movie studios and CE manufacturers it represents - wants consumers to rip their DVDs the old-fashioned way: using cheap, unsanctioned software from overseas (either that, or pay $2 to $4 to rip DVDs you already purchased).

OK, then, allow us to guide you to some of the more popular products that let you copy and manage your DVDs - whether you actually own the discs or not. Naturally, we encourage users to rip only the DVDs they own, not ones borrowed from friends or rented from Redbox, Netflix or other agencies.

sorry, but when did AVS become the after dawn forums? im under the impression that there should be no talk about ripping anything. i've been struck down before on this very same issue and would like to see the same happen to this advance member

No talk of ripping? Have you visited the HTPC forum in the last few years?

Actually one of the better CEPro slideshows. Not enough detail to really be useful, but points people towards options.

I usually get bored of waiting for the entire page to re-load after about the third click of "next slide".

CEPro should really update their slideshow delivery system.

Can't wait for the guys in Video Download Services and Hardware section tell us that shifting any DVD or BR we own to another device is akin to a new format and we should be purchasing the title again. They seem to think that way with Ultra-Violet and Vudu.

An audiophile likes to talk about how much they spent and how good it sounds.

A DIY'er likes to talk about how little they spent and how good it sounds.

I knew there was something wrong with this article. That's it! I really have no interest in DVD's, copied or not.

Yep. Amazon used. On average $5-6. A lot of titles shipped on Prime even and I own the title, can transcode and move to different media. It's nice having hard copy that I just toss in a box and store in the basement. Inception was $4.79 delivered to my door.

Not sure of what other legal way I could obtain a copy. Not saying that there isn't. I just didn't see any other way to get it at the time of purchase.

what I'm trying to say is that with the price of used Blu-ray ranging between $8 to $12 (at least in my area), why spend $5 - $6 for DVD.

There are titles that I will purchase on BR and others on DVD. Just depends on what some of the reviews say about the mastering on BR. While I prefer BR I just don't need it for every title personally. But your point is taken especially given the cost vs theater.

As an example: Iron Man or Transformers for BR? Most definitely yes. The Kings Speech? Probably not.

I rip all DVD/BR that I have. With 2 young kids in the house, having physical disks around is just not a wise thing to do. I used to rip DVD to mkv containers until about 3 years ago when new media players let me play DVD ISO with menu and all.

About a year ago, I stopped buying DVDs. With BR, I am going back to mkv.
