Either to keep a backup copy of your favorite DVDs, or to transform your bulky movie files into smaller high-quality files that your portable devices can handle, TDMore DVD Converter offers you an attractive and efficient solution to your video ripping and conversion needs. Organized by device and codec, and including specific ones for audio extraction, the program offers you an excellent choice of already-made output profiles, thus making it suitable for all types of users. It offers support for all the most widely used video and audio codecs, including the new H.265 for both high-quality MKV and MP4 output and for both 2D and 3D movies.
As soon as a video DVD is inserted, the program will analyze its contents and will show you all the titles, chapters, audio streams, and subtitles available, so that you can customize the output to fit your preferences. Selecting the right encoder and parameters could not be easier – the converter comes with an extensive and useful range of profiles that have been conveniently organized by both device and codec. On the devices side you will find specific profiles for Amazon’s Kindle, all Apple portable devices (including the new iPhone 6), LG, HTC, or Motorola smart phones and tablets, a wide range of media players, and many more. And on the codecs side, you will find the above-mentioned MKV- and MP4-H.265 profiles, together with those for AVI, FLV, MKV, WMV, or M2TS, to name but a few. More experienced users will probably miss the possibility of tweaking some of the parameters used internally in those profiles, which would allow them to adapt the output to more specific requirements. That is not an option with this tool, though I doubt you will need so rare a profile that is not already part of the program’s ever-growing profile collection.
TDMore DVD Converter also offers you 2D-to-3D capabilities. It supports 3D conversion to AVI, MKV, WMV, MP4, and TS formats, and to both side-by-side and top-and-bottom formats. As briefly mentioned, this conversion tool can also extract any of the audio streams present on the source disc, so that you can listen to them in your favorite portable media players. Among the audio formats supported, you will find a nice array of both lossy and lossless codecs, such as MP3, AAC, AC3, WAV, FLAC, or DTS.
The program’s interface is elegant and well organized, thus offering a very pleasant environment to work with. However, thanks to the program’s support for NVIDIA CUDA and Intel Quick Sync technologies, the time you would usually spend looking at the program’s GUI while waiting for the conversion process to finish has been drastically reduced to just a few minutes. In order for the program to run properly you will need to have an active Internet connection, though a new support for off-line operation has been implemented. This will allow you to enjoy the most of its functionality without being connected, though some decryption routines – required to open the most recent discs – may be compromised.
Be it for its versatility, its wide support of all well-known media formats and portable devices, its decryption capabilities, or its high-speed ripping and re-encoding processes, TDMore DVD Converter is a serious contender to be taken into account when looking for a reliable, fast, and high-quality DVD conversion tool.
