DVD Ripping is a common task that all computer users are aware of. Now that almost all of us have smartphones in our possession, it’s very obvious that we would want to have the movies from our old DVD collections to our smartphones. That’s when DVD Ripper comes into play. If you have ever seen torrent sites or downloaded movies from there, you might have noticed DVD Rip versions and CD rip versions. These are the videos ripped from DVDs and converted to versions that can be watched on mobile, laptops, tablets, etc. The main function of a DVD Ripper, is thus, converting DVD ISO images into the hard drive into formats like MP4, H.264, AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV and M2TS.
There is a plethora of DVD Ripping software applications that are reigning in the market. WinX DVD is one such software.

WinX also supports conversion of DVDs into audio format for Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iTunes), Android devices like Samsung, Nexus, Kindle, some Microsoft products like Xbox, Windows Phone, Surface and Sony, etc. The following few steps will show you how to convert DVD to MP4.
