I've tried the method in this YouTube video playlist "Home Theater How-To" to set up ripping my DVD collection to my PC but I'm not sure that it's the best way to do this.


I'm looking for the best quality I can get in a DVD / Blu-ray rip.


Can anyone recommend a way to get the best quality out of a DVD / Blu-ray rip? I'd like to preserve the 720 / 1080 large formate to play the rip from on my PC to my flat pannel TV.






PS One thing to mention about this YouTube video play list, it has hepled me get an increadable improvement in sound quality. I had no idea that my PC could make such beautifal music. Microsoft really is irresposible not including a better codec pack in the default stuff.


In fact following the recommendations in this video made me aware that recording my CD collection to my PC was premature since even the sound quality of ripping my CDs to wav is terrible compaird to recording off of a program called "Audials".


I made a post here about that.

The best quality way to rip the disks is by copying the image from the disk itself. This gives you 0 compression, so you will lose nothing in the process, but it will use a lot of hard disk space.


Here is a tutorial on how to achieve this with BurnAware, though there are other free products that will achieve the same thing.


Once you have your ISO's  (disk images) you can play them back using most good media players. My preference is VLC. The playback will be just like you are playing the original disk, menus included.






edit: here's a recent list of other free programs that are good for ripping your disks. Take your pick on the features you want.
