What fortmat to Rip DVDs to and software to use

Hello,

I’m looking at purchasing a WD TV LIVE Hub.  I’m wondering what the best format to rip DVDs to and what software would be best to use.

Thanks

DVDFab ->  ISO format.

I use dvd decrypter its a free app. works great for ripping dvds

I use DVDFAB (free version) and then DVD Shrink to change the files to ISOs. Never had the problems those who use MKVs have.

If you rip a full movie with DVD Fab to ISO will it play the menus as well?

I use either DVD Decyrpter to rip as .ISO or MakeMKV to rip as .mkv.

For episodic DVDs I use MakeMKV and rip each episode as an MKV. I have the complete series of Seinfeld and King of Queens on my media server. Great to just watch whenever without popping in DVDs and going through the menus and ■■■■.

Yep…  

for videos:  dvd decrypter there.  extract to iso works every time and it’s free

for music:  Exact Audio Copy.  extract to flac (lossless, not crappy mp3’s),  works all the time and is free
