26cab40 you must be another troll. How you can even compare DVDxDV to handbrake? DVDxDV has helped me recover hundreds of videos from damaged DVDs and handbrake has done nothing but choked on them. This tool works as advertised. Ignore the mental midgets trolling in this tools reviews. They must be shills working for the Asian backed spamming video conversion companies like Aimersoft, iSkysoft, Any-Video-Converter, Wondershare, Xillisoft and hundreds of other names!

Found the app very good and would recommend and have found the developer responsive and the permanent license key arrangement very fair.

I bought DVDxDV when it was first released with a "permanent license key." The "permanent license key" no longer works, and the developer insists I pay another license fee even though I've already bought a permanent key. Prospective buyers should be aware of the developer's dishonesty.

I was so happy to find DVDxDV. I had used a Sony product to burn my 8mm home videos to DVD with the intention of using some of the movies on my computer. However, my own videos were 'locked' and I could not access them. DVDxDV allowed me to easily grab portions of my video for use in my computer projects. This was invaluable because the other option would have been to rip the entire DVD to my computer. I did not want that. I wanted to pick and choose what I transferred to my computer. Excellent product and easy to use. I just opened it and got working.

I read a good article on the LAFCPUG site about DVDxDV and I decided to give it a try. The converted file works perfectly in my FCP 7 timeline. It's Exactly what I needed. Whatever it lacks in look and design, it makes up for with excellent customer service. I had several questions that I emailed and they got back to me immediately. They asked me to give them a review on this site and I became a member just so I could do that. Keep up the great work.

Nothing compares to the quality and ease of use. I couldn't stand those spamware Chinese DVD programs that don't work and make your video look terrible, such as, Wondershare, Leawoo, iSkySoft, etc. This is the only program that I use.

I'm a comedian and am always ripping bits from my shows off DVD's for youtube, my website and other promotional places.... this is the best software out there for that. Also, last week my hard drive crashed and so I needed to reload their program on my computer. I couldn't find a way to reload it without buying it again. I'm on tour today in California and emailed them asking if there was a way to get it without buying it again. It was 8:15AM on Sunday morning so I knew I wouldn't get a response but about 10 minutes later I got an email telling me how to do it. Absolutely amazing customer service backing up an all ready great product!

Have been using DVDxDV for two years now, version 1.09 on a pair of MacG5s; my experience is that if you have a DVD that is about 3GB full or less, it works fine. The app takes a long time to load the DVD. But if you have a 4GB, the problems abound! Additionally, if you have made your DVD from a videotape with some control track that is not continuous, the app fails on a number of fronts. For the past couple of days I've been trying to make a .mov file from one of four tracks on a DVD that I made from a VHS tape. The app does not recognize much of the track; just the last 20%. I've given up on DVDxDV! If only I could recover my lost time in past couple days!

I have been using DVDxDV for over a year now and I could not easily do my job without this tool. I am a Technology Specialist in a K-8 school and help produce a Kid's TV News Show at a local cable TV station. We shoot the stories at school in .mov format using video cameras and iMovie on Macs and go to the studio to do the anchor shoots. We record on VCR at the studio and it is transferred to DVD format. I use DVDxDV to easily convert the studio DVD to a .mov format so I can do my final merging and editing in iMove. I then burn to DVD for use at the studio for our final broadcasting. I have tried a couple other solutions but this is the easiest software to use and it produces great results. The support team is also awesome. I had to replace a hard drive on my Mac and I did not have the license key to activate the product for a critical weekend production. I emailed them and had the key back in less than five minutes. I would recommend this product highly.

Easy to use and works very well. It's a great piece of the puzzle for moving VHS home movies to digital. I use a Sony DVD recorder to dub VHS to DVD and then import the DVD video to the Mac with DVDxDV. There is some overscan from the VHS analog, but that can be cropped with iMovie.

DVDxDV Pro Ver 1.088 This is exactly!!! the program I was looking for....I am by no-way a computer expert and use them out of necessity only. So 'ease of use' is of high importance to me. I desire to do all of the cool things that you see others with much greater computer knowledge than I. My desire was to improve all of my presentations to small classes of home groups and small church groups. This program was a perfect fit. Just put the start and stop bars at the desired locations and let the program do the rest. Many thanks from a computer minimal-ist.

My experience has been very different than that of ptklenk (the reviewer before me). After work hours on the west coast I ran in to a problem moving DVDxDV from my G5 to Mac Pro. I emailed customer service and considered it a day done. After dinner, I checked and had an email from customer service with a current registration # and link to download the latest version. I did have problems entering in my registration number. Only when I enlarged the text in the email could I tell the difference between the number "one", a lower case "L" and an upper case "i". But it did work and I finished the project a day before I thought I would. Thanks!

Guys, if you can help please do. I just bought DVDxDV pro, I am hoping someone out there has a solution to my prob. I have shot footage in widescreen on my dvd sony handycam and want to edit as widescreen in FCP. But whenever I try to export from DVD DVDxDVpro into .mov it resizes my footage, and crops the width, (removing the widescreen). Is it my preferences, I am convinced I have tried everything! anyone have any ideas? or if you have successfuly kept footage as widescreen where have I gone wrong? cheers.

DVDxDV is a very useful tool, when working on DVD material to be edited, even in iMovie! Several weeks ago, i started editing a EUS31 DVD proyect with a low budget in my pocket. i went to the internet looking for a good converter,because most of the footage were burned on DVDs. I try de Demo, and found it useful and stable. with excellent image quality. Days later i bought a SONY DVD/VHS recorder, and found that certain DVDs like the one´s burned in this device, can´t be converted without using first some comand-line technique or in my case, a Rip Software. You have to get used with the program Preferences to get rid of audio sync problems that sometimes happen, and/or intelacing issues. But this depends of footage quality in most cases. Anyway, i´m happy with this great tool. It works fine for me. pablodagnino@cantv.net

Wow! Support Team responded to you! Amazing!! Can't get them to respond to me for a simple license key. Now I'm finding out that I'd be best served by just going elsewhere even though this product worked great when it did work at all. Anyway, what's your secret to getting a response from them. Right now I'd be happy if someone just told me to "get lost". That would at least be a response. So far, one week and counting, nada, zip. Nate

WARNING: NO Support For Registered Users! I am a long time PAYING registered user of DVDxDV. Since paying for the DVDxDV prior version, 1.9, the product rarely worked properly and was bug ridden. For example, version 1.94 left you with an unusable QuickTime file (blank after the first minute or so). Each time an attempt was made to fix an issue, more seemed to crop up. I am still using version 1.96. This was purchased to be used with a PowerMac and 10.4. I have no need for a Universal version and of course, one for 10.5 yet. Version 1.96 is constantly crashing. When I inquired about tech support about my crashing problem, I was told to pay for the latest upgrade as "there may be a fix in the new version for this, hence that's why it doesn't crash." I felt that I did not need a new version and only wanted help with getting the version that I paid for working properly. After all, I paid for a "permanent license key." They do not state that the tech support is limited. I asked the DVDxDV Support Team if they are basically telling me that they are not providing support for registered users of their products? Well, the DVDxDV Support Team replied that: "We can't maintain the product for free forever. At some point, we do have to charge for an upgrade to the next version." I replied that I am not asking for any type of upgrade. I would expect to pay for an upgrade if I needed an Intel version or for 10.5. I do not need those upgrades at this time. I was only wanting help to get what I purchased to work. It is that simple. It is supposed to work on 10.4 and it is not, it crashes. v1.9 was buggy from the first time I used it. I still have my earlier support emails starting with the problems in 1.94. Instead of any type of support, the DVDxDV Support Team stated that there is no help available. I am basically forced to buy an upgrade to fix the bugs that were in the version I purchased. I feel that I should not have to pay for a bug fix. I just want what I paid for to work. In other words, the DVDxDV Support Team is telling me too bad that the version you bought does not work even though it states it should work on 10.4. They are telling me to buy an unnecessary upgrade or forget it. They fixed the bugs found in v1.9 but force the registered user to pay for their bug fix. Not once during my Email correspondence with the DVDxDV Support Team did they even offer one bit of advice on addressing my crashing problem. They only wanted me to try their latest release and to pay for it. Despite my pleas for help, they would not even consider addressing any questions in an attempt to get me up and running again. What a terrible support team. I do not think too many software companies withdraw support on their last version, at least good ones. This is especially true when their prior versions had so many problems. I will never spend another dime with this horrible company. I have tried Cinematize and have moved to their product. It works with no bugs and appears that it has a much more viable support team. Besides, after using it, it seems to be a much better product. The interface is a huge improvement over DVDxDV.

I've been using it at work for a while now. Every attempt to contact the developer about an upgrade or licensing concerns has gone unanswered. First off, they only give you this odd temporary license and claim they will email you the real code to unlock the software. After plugging in the temporary license code half a dozen times and reading the FAQ I started emailing the company. I have to re-enter the license code they did give me once a month or something, it's obnoxious. Now there is an upgraded version which supposedly fixes some of the audio sync problems I've been having with it. I downloaded the demo, but the menu to serialize the software is greyed out. Thanks a lot. The software does work in spite of a quick and cheap looking interface but good luck getting any upgrades, licenses or support. I've chosen to scrap this software due to the lack of support and have started looking for a replacement. If anyone does get an answer from their "support team", please tell them they lost out on over a dozen licenses from at least one company.

Bought the $25 entry level version. Had a "mission critical" fix-it job on a professional DVD done by a 3rd party for a state agency that turned out real lame on the audio. No original DV source available. Cracked the video with DVDxDV to bring it expanded into Final Cut Express. A few newly learned tricks later and the audio would blow out your speakers. Now the true test -- how will the the new burnt DVD turn out on the Kiosk monitor? Went from original 160MB > 552MB cracked > 128MB final on disk. Can't tell the difference! Ran both as QTs on the Mac monitor side by side simultaneously and you couldn't tell which was which. $25 for one heck of a job well done. KUDOS to the software author! No noticeable change in quality. Gotta give it 5 thumbs up! Running Mac G5 dual 2.0, 1.5 gb ram - smooth as silk. -KK-

Great tool for beginners looking for an easy way to convert video from DVD's to something else! As for some of the complaints, they appear to be typical of someone without a clue, considering DVDxDV is NOT a DVD backup tool like MTR! As for the claims of the FREEBIES that do the same or better, ya right! Wanna buy bridge or two? There no other tool as close to the stability and ease this one offers. And lastly, for those with expire issues, have you ever thought of using your SEARCH to find the preference file and deleting it? For $150 per hour , I'd be glad to do it for you!

I just purchased the $25 version of this program and have been very pleased. I initially had problems installing the program but customer service answered my email promptly - on a Sunday evening! Then I found a slight bug with the temporary (30 day) license that they send with your purchase. The program asks for the license number every time it starts up but evidently it isn't necessary to enter it after the first time. Again customer service answered my email very promptly. The permanent license is supposed to arrive within this 30 day period. I have now ripped 3 homemade videos off CDs. The program worked perfectly and transparently. No fussing was necessary. It is true that it takes a very long time to rip the video - and then even longer to load it into iMovie to edit. Maybe if you have a top of the line Mac it would be faster. I have a 1.8 GHz iMac and it takes 3 or so hours to rip a 2 hour movie. Let it work overnight.

The trial I downloaded put the words DVDxDV across it. Although I realize it's a demo version, this really ticked me off. What would it kill them to give me something I can really use? There seemed to be a lot of "flickering" in the video quality also. I would not recommend this product. It took about four hours to rip an hour and a half dvd. I'll be looking for other options.

Some of these reviews suggest poor customer support for this product. I have not had that experience. Indeed,I just e-mailed them with a question about entering my serial number; apparently, I needed to download a non-demo version. They replied to my e-mail, literally, in less than 5 minutes. I did not get a form letter, and neither did they blow me off. I don't see a problem here.

Gotta love "Anonymous".. isn't even willing to provide his/her name. I'm sorry, any Anonymous reviews should be viewed with an eye of skepticism. Well, first, the price is $25, not $80. The TRIAL version has a 30-day expiration, so my guess is that "Anonymous" is encountering a user error. Great program, works as advertised. An AMAZING value for $25!

In my business we often receive video footage on DVD. Until I found this program it was always a painful and time consuming process to capture or convert the DVD into an editable form. I used a combination of utilities one that would demultiplex the VOB, and then one to decode the audio and finally a program to reassemble the two streams. That fact that this program allows for direct DVD to QuickTime format is awesome!

One complaint--with DVDxDV demo installed and not yet expired, commercial DVD's played using Apple's DVD Player showed video noise similar to the "watermark" added when trying out the DVDxDV demo. Annoying. Deleting DVDxDV app and prefs and a restart required to restore normal performance. (SuperDrive G5 DP2.0 running 10.3.5 w/DVD Player 4.0)

This is an excellent tool for video editing and recapturing lost footage. Its simple to use and the interface is awesome. I compared it to Cinamatize and the like through demos, and nothing was as clean and efficient as DVDxDV. This was the last demo I tried and knew within the first 10 minutes that this was exactly what I needed. Purchased it and they keep me posted via email with software updates. $25 is a fantastic price for the product they are offering vs. Cinamatize (my second choice) which is listed at $50 download $60 retail boxed. Plus Cinamatize requires the mpeg-2 quicktime plug-in which is another $20. DVDxDV with quicktime pro have been amazing together and when paired up is still cheaper than Cinamatize. DVDxDV provides a video timeline where you can preview and set your in and out points which allows you to capture only what you need, unlike some other similar software that only lets you capture the entire movie or a whole chapter. One thing that I would like to see next for DVDxDV is the timecode displayed at the marker point on the video timeline. But thats a little thing. Awesome job DVDxDV team!

Recent update to version 1.083 makes this program even better in that it now splits output into 8 minute chunks that can be imported into iMovie directly, without further editing of the Quick Time movie. Having used this program for about eighteen months I have never experienced any of the synch. problems mentioned in other reviews. Only downside is that it is slow, however, considering the amount of processing involved this is not surprising. Maybe I need a faster Mac!

DVDxDV is a wonderful product. I lost a master DVD of a Final Cut Pro project - all I had was a finished version of the movie on DVD from iDVD. DVDxDV extracted it - quickly and easily with great quality. If you work with DVD and digital video (iMovie, FCP, whatever) DVDxDV is a must-have!

dvdxdv pro has not exactly panned out for me. the problems i have are that besides the sound almost always being out of synch, i find it almost impossible to get smooth motion once the QT is placed in FCP. these are issues that have not been helped by changing my preferences to expert settings. nor have they been helped by by the work-arounds suggested in the help section. there is also no access to follow-up help provided by the company. i run a G4 double processor 1 GHz 1.5 GB ram w about 300 available GB plus panther w all latest updates. last week got my "permanent licenese key". it directs you to safari to get your "upgrade". once in safari you are presented w a large array of download choices. which to pick? where to get help choosing? i suppose i suffer from a short supply brain tissue here and sure would appreciate help from anyone who reads this. finally when you open dvdxpro you are not presented with the design fact the promo shows. i get three seperate elements, all movable, with the "timeline" considerably longer than my 17" screen. this means to navigate one must move the timeline to get to the controls on the extreme left. also the scrolling ability through the timeline is tough stuff depending on the length of the dvd opened. i could deal w all these elements if at the end i could get clean smooth running clips into FCP. i can't and wonder what all of you who are using it are doing that i'm not. to me the software is seriously flawed and will appreciate any feedback - especially from the company. sincerely alfredleslie

A very useful programme, the ability to use material already on one's own DVD's created with iDVD is a boon. The alternative is to import through an A to D converter from a DVD player. DVDxDV makes the whole process much easier and quicker. The tutorials on their website are excellent, as is the support via email.
