Release 184.108.40.206 a.k.a. Beta 6.0, released the 10th this month, comes as usual with FREE converter (see complete changelog).
Dump method should be avoided, so first, you should try to rip DVD or Blu-ray disc following normal method (see Rip and transcode DVD or Blu-ray disc).
If normal method fails (title not detected, unable to start ripping, ...), then you'd use the dump method:
1/ Load disc for playback
Because dump method is usually used for disc with reading issues, disc detection and analysis could take a while, so be patient.
You can load encrypted DVD disc but encrypted HD disc MUST be decrypted before loading for playback (Blu-rays and some HD-DVDs), , which is done creating a decrypted ISO first.
2/ Select title (eventually camera angle)
3/ Start copy with dump method
When dump is finished, you may click the magic button to load the dump file back into DVDx 4.1 player and video converter :
4/ Transcode title
Dump method runs a kind of brut-force copy process which grabs every title track, but metadata is lost (subtitles and audio languages are missing) :
- Identify audio and subtitles languages in player to make your choice
- Select audio and subtitles streams to transcode
Thanks to DVDx 4.1 integrated player you can identify audio and subtitles tracks you want, and then you're ready to transcode dump file : Recode DVD or Blu-ray rip (MKV files) tutorial will help...
