If you're looking to make digital backups of your DVD collection that will play anywhere, this software combo from MacX makes it easy. Here's what it includes:
MacX DVD Ripper Pro
Since not all DVD releases survived the jump to streaming, ripping is sometimes the only way to keep your video library accessible. This optical media extractor works around annoying copyright protections and DRM to turn your media into digital files. It lets you trim and adjust video to edit out menus and other unwanted content, and even upload to YouTube if you’re feeling courageous.
MacX Video Converter Pro
Heaps of raw video rips won’t do much good when all of your devices need different formats.

Additionally, you can record video directly from online streams as well as external webcams.
You can get a lifetime of updates to MacX DVD Ripper Pro and Video Converter Pro from the Boing Boing Store for $19.99.
