Have you been wanting to get your DVD library onto your PC, but are trying to figure out the best way to do that? A free application called bitRipper might be just the solution you’re looking for.

When you first launch the application you’ll be presented with an extremely simple interface that should confuse no one, but there are still plenty of customizations you can make if you really want to dig in. Here are some of the app’s highlights:

  • On-the-fly DVD to AVI conversion.
    You don’t need gigabytes of free disk space to store intermediate data. Your DVD is converted in your PC memory and written directly to your hard drive.
  • Extreme simplicity.
    You don’t need to be computer expert to convert a DVD using bitRipper, all you should do is to insert disc and click a button.
  • Splendid customization.
    You may tune any parameters if you want, but until you decide they will never distract you.
  • Everything included.
    You don’t need to download additional modules, codecs and other software. We bundled everything that bitRipper requires yet saving it’s size.
  • Existing sources usage.
    bitRipper may use any codec which is already installed in your system choosing the most optimal one of them unless you specify the other.
  • High software performance.
    We did everything to make a DVD to AVI conversion process as fast as possible. The speed only depends on your hardware.

On the download page the developer does say that bitRipper is 100% free, but if you are prompted to register a complimentary serial number is provided. I’m guessing this is just in case you download an older version from somewhere else that still requires a serial number.
