Windows 7: Want to Rip all my DVD's to a home server. Need some advice

Want to Rip all my DVD's to a home server. Need some advice

Hey guys. I currently own a big DVD/BR collection, and i am wanting to RIP all of them into a Video file to play on my computer. I want these files in the BEST QUALITY possible. I just want to know the most efficient way of doing this. Here is some more info.

I am planning to stream the videos to players like this, (may affect formats?) Western Digital WDTV Live Streaming Media Player WiFi FULL-HD 1080p DLNA or i might do something like this XBMC

Here is my exact CD drive LG WH14NS40 14X Blu-Ray Writer BD-R SATA M-DISC Support Black OEM (Other specs down below)

If its better in 32bit (i wouldn't know) i have a 32bit dualboot that i can use.

So what im looking for is, some programs that you would recommend to do the job, and the best settings to put it on to get the best quality possible.

Thanks, Jem.

Complex issue with no easy answer that can be discussed here. If the DVDs/BDs are legitimate, commercial disks then many (all?) are going to have some flavor of copy protection on them that will stop any legal copy program from doing what you want. Discussions of defeating the protections aren't going happen here. So don't be surprised if you get little or no input.

video quality depends on many factors. but the mainly characters are video bite rate, frame rate and aspect ratio. there are now some program you can use directly to convert dvd to video so , for it's get preset formats for your device.,you don's have to do so some extra settigs. it's already the best output quality video.

You can use this Bling 123 Copy DVD Platinum 2012 (PC) 8086191 - Micro Center)

or the gold you will be able to rip a Geniune DVD it is legal because you already own it and offers Youtube streaming and Hulu channel streaming has tons of featurnes even allows double layered disc and Blu ray ripping

I might add it will rip it exactly how it is encoded on the disc so it will basicly Mirror the whole thing even features and subtittles
