The Popular Axxo Secrets on how to RIP DVD

Ripping a DVD to xvid or divx avi is really quite easy, if you have the right tools. You’ll first need to download DVD decrypter and auto gordian knot (autogk). DVD decrypter allows you to rip the raw DVD video and audio data off of your disk drive, decrypt the CSS protection, and finally remove any other protection schemes, such as Macrovision. AutoGK is a package of codecs and a GUI interface that will take the raw DVD data through an AV processing pipeline to produce a single windows video file.

Step 1: RIP

Put in a DVD and launch DVD Decrypter. Choose IFO (Information File) mode:
( Figure 1 )

Now make sure you’ve selected a destination for your files:
( Figure 2 )

Now you need to find which program chain to rip (PGC). Pick the one that’s the longest, or in the case of a TV dvd, the episode you want to rip:
( Figure 3 )

Everything’s set up. Just click the green arrow and wait about twenty minutes, after which you will have a set of files which look like this:

VTS_01_PGC_07 – Stream Information.txt

The whole ripping process shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.

Step 2: ENCODE

Launch AutoGK and select the first .vob that you just ripped as an input file, and set an output file name:
( Figure 4 )

Now you need to select audio (choose the first one) and subtitles, if any:
( Figure 5 )

If you’re ripping a TV, set the preferred size to 350MB, if you’re ripping a movie, choose either 700MB or 1400MB, depending on your preference:
( Figure 7 )

Finally, click on advanced settings and choose MP3 VBR 128kbs:
( Figure 8 )

Then click “add job” and “start.” After all this, you’ll have a log that looks like the following:

  4. another fan of axxo

    Hi! I find your software very helpful and user friendly, however I
    have to encode in the AutuoGK the chapters one by one. Do I have to
    encode it one by one? And do I have to get software just to combine
    all the chapters? And is it a movie DVD or did I do something wrong?

    it will continue, check step 2

    Step 2: ENCODE
    Launch AutoGK and select the first .vob that you just ripped as an input file, and set an output file name

    I have so many doubts if Mr.aXXo really uses these 2 tools for ripping 3-4gb DVD to 700mb avi files. But if these work than thanks for this informative article.
    Yeah, I tried many converters but only use AutoGK n Vidsplitter that let us to select size of 700mb for output files. So now I shall try with DVD Decrypter as the above article.

  7. thenyproject

    In step 2, the encoding process, you wrote to choose the VOB file as the input. Didn’t you mean the IFO file?

    I just chose the IFO and ripped S01E05 of Dexter and it worked perfectly. I think you meant IFO, am I wrong?

  8. UltimateChaos

    This would work with the DvD decrypter if it would update. I had a problem with newer DvD’s and switched to DvDFab.

  9. Longboarder1

    You ctuallyu need to select the .ifo file, not the .vob. search “Rip dvds like axxo” in google and click the first link.
