How to Rip DVD for Free with Handbrake?
Step 1: Install Handbrake
Simply download the "Windows GUI" from the Handbrake download page then run the installer. It's that simple. If you get a prompt telling you that you don't have the correct version of .Net framework installed, then you'll need to download this from the Microsoft website. Google will help you with this.
Step 2: Output settings
Source: (1)Title: Handbrake will detect all the titles on the DVD and choose the longest title automatically.
(2)Chapters: By setting chapters' number, you can rip a specific clip. However, this is not very user friendly, since you will have to remember what is on each chapter. If you could preview each chapter, things would be a lot easier.
Destination: Choose the folder to save ripped movies and videos by clicking "Browse" button.
Output Settings: Select the format and codec you need, click "Format" drop-down list to select a proper output format. You can also set some Video and Audio parameters.
Step 3: Start ripping DVD
After all settings done, click "Add to Queue" to add DVD into the waiting queue for conversion. If you ignore this step, the conversion for the DVD is the latest one you add from "Source" and others you added before will be missed. Click "Start" button to rip DVD for free.
