mp4: h.264 Movie-Video File Compression FreewareHandBrake "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 Decrypting-Backup FreewareDVD 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

DVD Player Freeware, mp4 Video Player FreewareDaum 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.
