A New Version for BD-DVD Ripper (Windows) Released! See What Changes
We just released a new version for VideoByte BD-DVD Ripper (Windows), which comes with a brand-new interface, powerful features and fast ripping speed to help you rip DVD/Blu-ray discs easier and faster than ever before.
Additionally, compared with the old version, the new version made a vast improvement in the aspect of reading ability of disc, and the ripping performance. Now, let's see the detailed changes in the new version of VideoByte BD-DVD Ripper.
Notice: The new version for Mac is under development. So the VideoByte BD-DVD Ripper for Mac is still the old version. We will compare the Windows and Mac version in Part 2.
What We Have Improved in the New Version?
1. Optimize Design and UI
The new version got a new look, which aims to simplify the operation and make the whole conversion easier. The layout is more intuitive, so users can find every button easily and know what they are meaning.
2. Detect the Main Movie Automatically
Before, the old version will list all the movies for you, and you need to choose the main movie by yourself. But now, the new version will detect the main movie for you. And, it also provides the whole movie list and you can select other movies to rip.
3. Keep All Audio Tracks and Subtitles
Now, you're able to keep all of the audio tracks and subtitles if you set the lossless MKV as the output format. And these audio tracks and subtitles can be selected when you play the ripped movie on the media player. However, it can't keep the name of the audio tracks and subtitles for you.
4. A New Output Format List
The new version adds some output formats, but also removes some. Compared with the old version, the new output format list looks cleaner and simplify.
In addition, besides to rip DVD to video/audio files, you can also choose to rip DVD to DVD folder or DVD ISO files.
5. Faster Ripping Speed
To improve the ripping speed, VideoByte changed a core for the VideoByte BD-DVD Ripper. The new version will be 6X faster than before when you ripping the DVD or Blu-ray disc. You need to download the new version and test it by yourself. You’ll be surprised by it.
6. Add A Toolbox
From the main interface, you can see the "Toolbox" section which provided 5tools: Media Metadata Editor (opens new window), Video Compressor (opens new window), GIF Maker, Video Enhancer and 3D Maker.
In general, the new version of VideoByte BD-DVD Ripper is more consistent with the user's habits and the performance is more stable. Whether the DVD/Blu-ray loading speed or the ripping speed has been significantly improved. The highlight is that you don't need to find the main movie by yourself when using the new version. This program will find it for you!
Now if you're a Windows user, it's time to download the new version to have a try.
New Version (Windows) VS. Old Version (Mac)
1. Main Interface
The most intuitive differences between the new and old version is the main interface. Their color of interfaces and layout of buttons are completely different. But it doesn’t affect users to use the program. They are both easy-to-use.
Take the placement of edit function as an example. In the new version, the edit function and clipping can be used by clicking the star-shaped and scissors-shaped icon which are placed on the movie information column. While in the old version, you can directly find them on the top column of the main interface. As for the Preview Interface in the new version, you need to click the playback icon and it will pop up a window for previewing. In the old version, you can directly preview in the program’s right side.
2. 3D Output
In the Windows version (new version), you can only set “3D Red-Blue” and “3D Left-Right” in the main interface. If you need more settings of 3D to make your video more brilliant, you should go to “Toolbox” > “3D Maker” to set up.
In the Mac version, you can directly select 3D output and the effects on the profile. “3D” button in the top column offers the same function with the “3D Maker” in the Windows version.
To Sum Up
All in all, although they have the completely different layout, their functions are nearly the same. You can choose the version according to your computer. As we said before, new version's performance is more stable compared with the old version and we recommend you to use the new one. We will roll out the new Mac version ASAP.
