How to Use SmartRipper

The SmartRipper is a DVD ripper that copies both video and sound files from a DVD to a computer. SmartRipper can also rip the DVD files to .vow files. These files store sound and video. However this ripper should not be used to transcode video at all. If you have to change the  .vob DVD format to any video format, a video encoder must be used.  You can use any freeware on the net to assist you with this job. Do an internet search to find a reliable one. Here is how you can use a Smartripper. Read on for more information.
