  mp4: h.264 Movie-Video File Compression Freeware

HandBrake "is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 converter, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows." HandBrake is freeware that uses the h.264 codec and an mp4 (MPEG-4) file container to compress video to much smaller file sizes than the standard DVD (MPEG-2) codec/container, while preserving quality.

Although it has a steeper learning curve, Avidemux can do most of what Handbrake does, and do many other useful things as well. "Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs."

  DVD anc Blu-ray Decrypting-Backup Freeware

MakeMKV can "convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters. There are many players that can play MKV files nearly on all platforms, and there are tools to convert MKV files to many formats, including DVD and Blu-ray discs.

DVD Shrink freeware does much of what DVD X Copy used to do (extract, decrypt, and compress DVD files), and does it for free, but without documentation or tech support. Although DVDShrink has been under legal attack, at last check it could still be downloaded at AfterDawn.

DVD Decrypter freeware will extract the files from a DVD and decrypt them, but will not compress them to fit on one recordable disc the way DVD Shrink does. It also has some capabilities that DVD Shrink lacks. It has been reported that Macrovision purchased the rights to DVD Decrypter and changed the license to prevent anyone from acquiring it--thus it may now be very difficult to find. However, at last check Video Help still has pages with good links to places where you can download DVD Decrypter, as well as similar tools such as DVDFab Decrypter.

RipIt4Me freeware, used in conjunction with DVD Decrypter (and, if necessary, DVD Shrink), helps backup recently-released copy protected DVDs with new forms of encrypting (such as ARccOS and RipGuard DVD) which those older programs cannot handle by themselves. FixVTS is also said to be helpful with some difficult to backup DVDs. RipIt4Me user guide - user guide 2

VobBlanker is a freeware editing tool that allows you to remove unwanted VTS video titles, warnings, etc. from the DVD files you backup on your hard drive before you burn a copy disc.

  DVD Burning & DVD-RW, CD-RW Burning Software

ImgBurn is a freeware CD, DVD,HD-DVD, & Blu-Ray burner (recorder) that you can use to move your DVD backups from your hard drive to a recordable or rewritable disc if you do not have Nero, Roxio, or other commercial software to do so.

  DVD Player Freeware, mp4 Video Player Freeware

Daum Potplayer is, as of this writing, the best freeware DVD player, and the best player for many other video and audio files as well. Potplayer is written by the original programmer of KM Player. It has dozens of useful options, including capturing single or multiple still frames, video clips and audio clips, and for choosing which "filter" (decoder) you wish to use to display the video.

Media Player Classic looks like Windows Media Player 6.4, but has additional features, including a DVD player with real-time zoom and single still frame capture. It is very compact and places a relatively low load on your PC, and thus is particularly good for those whose PCs have had difficulty with other DVD playing software.

VLC media player is a freeware multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can capture and save still frames from the video you are playing. Versions are available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, and other operating systems.
