ok, here is a current status of my views on this type of software (WITH .WMV ENCODING SUPPORT). i hope slysoft can use this info for developing a good and powerful newer version of cloneDVD mobile. DVD-WMV (Freeware) : + nice features - left menu is invisible (although PC has the newest updates incl. NET framework 3.0) => * (totally unuseable cause of missing menu/buttons!) A1 DVD Ripper : + nice and easy - crashes when encoding => * (totally unuseable cause of software crash!) AoA Media DVD Ripper : + nice and easy - crashes when encoding => * (totally unuseable cause of software crash!) Pocket DVD Wizard : - too rookie - nearly no functions and configs => ** (waste of time, do not match any need!) DVDpean Pro : cannot say anything cause - crashes when starting => * (totally unuseable cause of software crash!) Pocket DVD Studio : + nice and easy + great config + many options + good overview/preview + cropping - very slow encoding ( x1.9 ) => **** (good and useful!) imTOO DVD Ripper (= Xilisoft DVD Ripper) : + nice and easy + great config + endless options/encoders (incl. pre-settings for more than 100 devices!!!) + good overview - slow encoding ( x1.6 ) => ***** (good and powerful!) Spb Mobile DVD : + very nice and easy (both for novices and pros) + step by step wizard + good overview/preview + practical crop feature + fast encoding ( x0.8 ) - no audio config => ***** (easy and fast!) tested on: Win XP Pro SP2, AMD Athlon 2.5GHz, 1.5GB RAM as you can see most of the tools on the market are totally bullshit! the only serious and good ones are: imTOO DVD Ripper (most features), Pocket DVD Studio (well balanced) and Spb Mobile DVD (best speed). ...have a look on them! so far, hope it helps!
