Here's how to rip DVDs to MP4 for playing back on iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or other iOS and Android devices using WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.

It's no exaggeration to say that MP4 is the most popular video format, offering the best balance between quality, size and compatibility. Getting your favourite movies from DVD to MP4 to play on the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 or other devices doesn't have to be difficult. True, it hasn’t always been easy, as anyone who’s ever had to decrypt the disc with one app then rip and convert it with another will attest, but there is now a better way. Best of all, it’s free.

That’s because Digiarty, the leading multimedia software provider and a specialist in DVD and Video conversion and backup, is giving away its best-selling WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, free of charge. You can download the whole package on the WinX DVD website without paying a penny, and the only limitations are that this version isn’t upgradable, and that the free unlock code provided needs to be used by the specified date.

Why is it so good? Partly it comes down to sheer ease of use. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum removes encryption, automatically selects the main title and outputs it smoothly in the right order, with next to no work from the user. With ready-made configurations for the most commonly-used video formats, such as MP4 (MPEG4/H.264), AVI, MOV and MPEG2, and every major make and model of tablet and smartphone, from the iPhone (such as iPhone X and iPhone 8) to the Google Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy, you can be sure that you’ll get a great result, first time and with minimal fuss.

Most of all, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is fast. Specifically, it rips DVD to MP4 using GPU acceleration and support for multi-core processors and hyper-threading. Run it on a 64-bit Windows 7 PC with a Core i7 4790K processor and 16GB of RAM, and it can convert a DVD to the popular MPEG4/H.264 format at speeds of up to 260 frames per second. That's three to five time faster than many rival programs running under the same conditions, on the same hardware at the same settings. It also has ready-made device profiles that are directly usable on different smartphones, tablets and games consoles.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum also handles DVD discs protected by the most challenging encryption systems, including the particularly prickly schemes used by Sony and Disney. Discs that make other DVD rippers crash or splutter don’t pose any problems, and Digiarty continually upgrades the program to support and rip the latest DVDs.

WinX DVD Ripper Platinum also boasts more advanced features than its rivals, with tools for editing, modifying the aspect ratio and cropping the video. It can de-interlace interlaced DVD video for maximum quality, or use a High Quality Engine to extract every speck of detail from every frame. It also features four DVD copy modes, enabling you to clone the DVD to an ISO, ready for burning as a backup disc, make a 1:1 copy straight to a folder on your hard disk, and either back-up the DVD main title or copy it to a fully multi-track MPEG-2 file, complete with all video, audio and subtitles.
