How to speed up DVD ripping process

Leave a comment

Generally, when you rip and convert a movie it takes the time as long as the movie is. In fact, there are many factors will affect the conversion speed. Such as computer performance, the original file properties, the output settings, computer environment etc. Many users have such a question? How to speed up the DVD conversion speed. Now, according to my own experience, give you some tips.

Tip One. Firmware Update breaks the DVD drive speed limits

Some DVD-ROM manufacturers purposely limit the DVD ripping speed of their drives to try and prevent customers from making copies of retail DVDs. Normally, the limitation can be bypassed by flashing your DVD-ROM drive with an updated or hacked firmware (which also may allow you to make your DVD-ROM drive region-free).

Tip Two: Setting High Priority can help

Every program running on your computer is assigned a priority. Priority is typically determined by how important a program is in maintaining system stability and insuring the system is still responsive to your commands. The browser you’re using to read this article has a higher priority than any number of non-critical background tasks going on in your computer. When you’re using DVD Ripper, it operates in the foreground and gets a generous helping of processor time out of your computers busy schedule. Once the DVD ripping process has begun, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and select “Task Manager”. Find the DVD ripper in Process, right-click on it and set its Priority to High. Your DVD should now rip more quickly, but keep in mind it is a very intense process. Depending on the file size and duration of your videos it’s not unreasonable for it to take as long (sometimes longer) as the DVD’s actual running time.

DVD Guide: How to move DVD movies to Nexus 10 tablet

2 Thoughts

Google Nexus 10 is considered as the best 10 inch android tablet. To be honest, it’s a larger version of its impressive Nexus 7 (See also: New Nexus 7 Review). The last two iPads have had an impressive Retina quality screen as a great selling point. The Nexus 10 goes even further with a whopping 2560 x 1600 resolution – the same as the 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display. Google calls it the “world’s highest resolution tablet display”.


A pixel density of 300ppi is nothing short of incredible. Everything displayed on the screen looks super sharp and detailed. We found the screen very responsive and viewing angles are astounding. And at 16:10 the aspect ratio is good for watching films.

Some Nexus 10 users often ask me such a question, “how can i watch dvd films on Nexus 10 tablet?”. Obviously, DVD discs can’t be played by tablets directly, even if the DVD backup ISO or IFO image files. In fact, as long as you pick up a DVD ripping program, you can easily make it. The most famous is handbrake. Which is freeware. But, according to my own experience, this one can’t rip copy-protected DVDs (ie: Disney and other animated discs). Handbrake actually convert MPEG video (including DVD-Video) into an MPEG-4 video file, but only limited to these DVD-like source: VIDEO_TS folder, DVD image or real DVD (CSS will not be supported and must be dealt with externally with third-party software and libraries. So you’ll need to add an intermediate step to get protected DVD movies onto Nexus 10.

Which codec is for ripping Blu-ray (3D included) movies losslessly

1 Thought

Assuming a backup rip from a brand new 3D blu-ray movie, using lossless codecs would mean that the most important questions at hand would be: Which lossless codec is widely used and compatible?

Since the original Blu-ray movie in .m2ts format and the best way to get 1:1 copy of original BD movie is to copy the entire disc into .m2ts format, but in this way you would also get exactly same file size as original one, at least 20GB, this way takes too much hard disk space.

According to my own experience, I prefer backing up BD/DVD disc to mkv format using ByteCopy because it not only copies movie to mkv without quality loss, the conversion process is within 20 minutes, very efficient. Moreover, the Best Blu-ray ripping program will will help us retaining Multi-subtitle and multi-audio tracks.  Below is a guide for you.

The way adding flash to android

3 Thoughts

While web developers are slowly moving to HTML5, we aren’t convinced that computing is truly ready for a Flash-free world just yet. If you own a Nexus 7, Nexus 10, or any other tablet or smartphone running Android Jelly Bean, by now you’ll have noticed that many of the things for which you wanted that tablet – watching catch-up TV and online video, casual gaming – just don’t work. In many cases apps are available that add the functionality, but do you really want to install individual apps for every Flash site or service that you use? Or turn on the dusty old desktop just to catch up with EastEnders on iPlayer? That’s not very convenient.

We don’t even want to think about the Flash problem: we want to continue doing what we want, when we want in our browser, and not deal with the continous headache of switching between apps to find a solution that works. This stuff should be seamless. 

The good news is that although Android Jelly Bean doesn’t officially support Flash, it’s really easy to add Flash support to the OS. Here, we show you some simple tweaks to enable the playback of catch-up TV, online video and Flash games on a Google Nexus 10 or any other tablet running Android Jelly Bean.

Add Flash to Android: A quick fix

One of the simplest ways to add Flash to Android is to install Puffin Browser. Puffin builds in support for Flash, so all you need to do to add Flash to Android is install the browser via Google Play.

You don’t have to use Puffin as your primary browser, but you may find it quickly grows on you – not only is it incredibly fast (we recorded 204.6ms in SunSpider on our Nexus 10 Android Jelly Bean tablet), it also has some neat touches such as a virtual trackpad and a gamepad, the latter allowing you to map any keyboard function to its onscreen controls.
