If you are making the shift from DVDs to digital format video, you may be considering AVI as an option. AVI file types are stable on most computers, and playable on most video player software. In addition, their file size is generally small, which means you can keep more movies on a single hard drive! In this article, we’ll walk you through how to convert a DVD to an AVI file.
Computers and laptops don’t come with any DVD ripping software, so the first thing you will need to do is find a third-party software to help you with your task. Most DVDs are designed to prevent any copying or ripping, and the format of the DVD is not easily converted to any other file type without professional software. Luckily, today there are some third-party applications available online that can help you.
Some options are available, and they range from cheap to expensive, easy to use to complex, and secure to potentially dangerous. One affordable, easy-to-use, and safe software is AmoyShare DVD Ripper in Total Media Solution. Below, a step-by-step guide is provided to take you through the process.
What you will need:
The DVD you want to copy
A computer with a DVD driver
Step 1: Download and launch Amoyshare Total Media Solution/, and enter the “Ripper” section in the main interface.
Step 2: Insert your DVD. Click “Add Blue-ray/DVD” button, and on its pull-down menu, select your DVD video. Total Media Solution will automatically detect your source media files.
