Ripping Bought DVDs.

The title says it all. I have thousands of DVDs that I have purchased over the years and I still buy them to rip and save. I love movies.

This being said I have been running into issues lately backing up some newer disks.

The manufacturer no longer supports DVD Catalyst 4 and I am looking for an up to date all in one solution for ripping my DVDs.

I don't want a 4 step 5 program process I just want to keep it simple as I said I backup my disks to MP4 on my home server, I do not share, FTP for others or anything dumb like tha tI just want to keep backing up my own purchases and the newer disks aren't saving anymore.

Any ideas?

Additional Comment:

As an afterthought I save everything for use on Android tablets, I use them on my Droid Turbo2 and or my Asus TF700 and that's about it.

I've used MDR with fairly good success also, I converted some of my DVD to be able to stream them to my TV, they have multiple format options though.
They have a free trial with no watermark or restrictions if you want to test it out.

They had excellent support as well.One dvd I had failed during ripping contacted them and sent the logs to them and over a couple of days sent me updated versions until it worked.If you do get the free upgrades for life version.

I have no problem paying one time I just don't want a subscription service. I used to do the handbrake thing and it was such a pain in the butt doing multiple step processes when a set had 12 DVDs in it. I'll give it a shot. All the scams shareware viruses and other things make me leery of trying new programs especially for stuff like this.

Magic is simple to use and will do MP4 if that's your preferred format .One time price for the lifetime upgrade will ensure if copy protection evolves it will as well.Fairly quick process as well.

If anyone remembers AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD before Slysoft went out of business a new company located someplace where US/EU copyright restrictions do not apply makes and supports the software now. Company is called RedFox.

I tried that one when it was Slysoft and it wasn't very good no idea what it's like now.Mostly just failed rips no crashes but I never paid for it so it might have been different with a paid up to date version.

DVDFAB is a good one, albeit complicated to use the trial version forever. You can rip the files directly from disk (along with a mini iso that can be mounted) then use kodi to build a library. It's pretty awesome once set up.

how did you get DVD fab to work for rips directly to disk? Mine expired after 30 days
I know the text says it always works, but mine didn't which options did you choose?
thanks

Handbrake is free and works perfectly.

MakeMKV is free (ish?) just update the key every month from the beta forum.

Handbrake is awesome. My wife was even able to do it! I had to use MakeMKV to rip Blu Rays, and then handbrake to encode them. We did our whole collection over a couple of weeks for our Apple TV.

Many encoders, handbrake included will allow you to set a target file size if you want and it will just do the best to adjust quality to make sure you get that target size.
