How to Rip TV Series DVD to Individual H.264 MP4 files Easily and Fast?
Step 1: Load TV Series DVD
Launch the program and add the TV Series DVD you want to rip by clicking the “Load from Disc” icon on the main interface. Select the Title dropdown list and inspect the listings. You’ll see a group of titles and durations. And the whole main title of the TV Series DVD has been ticked automatically. You should find a group of titles with running times that match the approximate running time of a single episode in the series.
In our example, we are converting a series of one hour shows, so we have two titles running close to an hour. For a broadcast TV program it will be more like 40-45 minutes for an hour show and 20 minutes or so for a half hour program. You may want to refer to the original DVD if you aren’t sure of the number of episodes per disc and running times. You can ignore any additional smaller clip. They are likely to be intros and extras. Select the first title you’d like to add from the dropdown list.
Step 2: Choose outptu format
Click “Format”, you can find many video formats in the dropdown list, you can choose the one you need like “H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)” from “HD Video” option.
