ratDVD not working with Windows 7

Hello, I have windows 7 64-bit and I cannot run any ratDVD files. Does anyone know any way around this?

Thanks

Hi,

Were you able to play the same DVD in any other Windows computer ?

Additionally, you can download the ratDVD player from here:

ratDVD v0.78.1444 (freeware)

Microsoft are still testing the compatibility of ratDVD (Windows 7 Compatibility RatDVD.CA ratDVD version 0)

You can, however, use Windows Media Player Classic to view all your ratDVD files (Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema, Free Video Player Download)

Hopes this helps.

Yes, I used to play ratDVD files just fine in my old XP Pro machine. The link you've posted is not a player, is the encoding software, which I have installed..

I used the media player classic (v6.4.9.1) in my old machine (along with other software) and it worked fine.. In Windows 7 64-bit though, this player hungs with a "Media player classic has stopped working". I tried the above link for the Media Player Classic Home Cinema (64-bit), but when I load the ratDVD file I get a "Failed to query the needed interfaces for DVD playback" message..

gkscorpio, the only other player that seems compatible with .ratDVD files is KMPlayer.

KMPlayer - Download

It would appear as though development on ratDVD has ceased for the time being.

Hope this helps.

There was a list of players compatible with ratDVD format ( RatDVD.CA - Play RatDVD ), all of them worked fine in XP. I tried KMPlayer too in 7, I get the same "...has stopped working" crash message when I try to open a ratDVD file. I know that it's a bit of "abandoned" software, but since I have quite a few files I have converted from DVDs, I was wondering if it's a matter of configuration for it to work with 7 as well..

As an alternative, does anybody know any other way for full DVD conversion with menus and controlls and all that works with 7?

Have a look at DVDShrink. You may find that it does what you are looking for.

Hmmm.. I know about DVDShrink, I've been using it for a few years.. My only problem, is that I wanted a format with a filename that I could run with some media player instantly, without having to mount to a virtual drive.. Apart from that, DVDshrink produces PAL DVD resolution, in which case if you want to a lower-size backup file would be pixelized..
