Power DVD Movie Extractor, as its name indicates, is a DVD video ripper designed to convert DVDs to multiple formats supported by a wide range of portable devices. In addition, it is possible to rip DVD videos to conventional video formats, so that we can view them later on our computer. We can also extract audio (any stream) from a DVD video.
Generally speaking, this application gives us the opportunity to convert DVD videos to Divx, Xvid, 3GPP, 3GP2, iPod, PSP, MP3, MP4, and WAV formats. Many audio and video output settings can be customized along the way. A disadvantage is that there is not help guide of any kind; therefore, we must be aware about video quality settings, frame rates, systems, etc, so that the resulting audio or video file looks fine and works for the intended device.
This program is available for evaluation purposes (the trial version is functional for one month), although we are only allowed to run the program three times in total. One important thing to bear in mind not to run out of trial time sooner that expected, is that every time we close the program window, this counts as one run.
