DVDxDV Pro4.0.1

02 September 2020

Convert DVDs to a variety of formats.

Overview

DVDxDV Pro is designed to restore the audio and video from DVDs to any other QuickTime supported format. If you've ever wanted to re-edit the video, send a clip of it over the internet, or play it back on your iPad, iPhone, iPod, or iPod Touch, DVDxDV makes this process easy.

DVDxDV Pro allows users of high-end editing systems, such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, iMovie, Premiere Pro, or Avid Media Composer, to extract high-quality multi-channel audio from DVDs. Each individual channel in a sound track can be exported to a separate 24-bit AIFF sound file. In addition, DVDxDV Pro allows users to reverse the original interlaced field ordering of a DVD. DVDxDV Pro allows you to grab any frame from a DVD and save it to a file. Click the Preview window and drag the frame to the desktop or copy the frame to the Clipboard and use it in Photoshop, Preview, or any image editing software.

With any purchased software it ultimately comes down to support. I have had nothing but responsive, competent and professional support. It is because of the support which will hold me as a customer.

This program is good for people lacking general tech and codec knowledge; the interface is fairly simple, and in many scenarios will work fine. However, I would spend the time to learn how to use MPEG Streamclip as it can do everything this program does (batch exports, exporting user-set regions, etc.) and more (more output options, demuxing, etc.) at much better quality, and for free. My main reason for abandoning this product is the terrible way it handles deinterlacing: on several PAL sources, after fiddling with every setting possible, the resulting quicktimes were terrible quality: effectively the program was throwing out half of the resolution. I would like to recommend this program because of the simple interface, but on too many occasions I've been burned and gone back to MPEG Streamclip to do it right.

DVDxDV PRO does what it says and does it better then anyone else. I have used it for years. Their support team are really nice and fast at fixing issues i've had over the years. Footage i have captured with DVDxDV Pro just works with FCP and footage have even been used for TV Broadcast. I can't praise it enough.

I read somewhere the developer tells us some pro studios are using this program. I would like to know which pro studio. I do not believe this. I am a video editor for about 35 years. Got the whole analog to digital age and I am proud to say I have a lot experience regarding video editing both analog and digital. This program does not cut the bill on professional level. It has adequate problems with severe audio sync problems. It sometimes even time stretches the audio to keep up with the timecode. If this is done the right way it would be acceptable but I hear audio artifacts on some parts. That is not good. Maybe it is workable for simple things but calling it a Pro application is not right.

First did a trial version of DVDxDV and the trial extraction worked well. Decided to spend a little bit more money and download the Pro Version from the Mac App store. The first video extraction completed without incident but the encoding held up for some reason or another. So here comes the good part. I email Technical Support from the help menu and got an immediate reply. Before I knew it I was on iChat screen sharing with Tech Support and the problem was immediately resolved. DVDxDV support even checked back 30 minutes later to make sure I was able to download to iTunes. Now I am off and running . . . great product and even better support. Thanks DVDxDV!

Buzzclik reviewed on 27 Feb 2011 I like this software, easy to learn too! I transferred old VHS to DVD-R then needed software to rip that for re-editing and output to YouTube. This is it! Now finding crazy old stuff. That was the older 2. ver. 3.3.5 is a good improvement to an already good application.

I use to use Handbrake and MPEGStreamclip for converting DVDs. The quality from Handbrake was terrible and MPEGStreamclip was just too difficult to use and buggy. I switched to using DVDxDV Pro. I found the interface in DVDxDV Pro much easier to use. It lets me preview the DVD instantly. I can zoom in on the timeline and find any part of the DVD that I want. The quality is excellent, as well as, the service and support. I highly recommend this product!

DVDxDV Pro is easy to use, and the expandable timeline lets me get to the exact spot on the DVD that I need. I can drop the output file straight into Final Cut Pro and of great quality. Working as a professional editor, I need a quick and reliable product with great support. DVDxDV Pro is the kind of product that you know will get the job done.

I've worked as a video professional for many years and I've tested many different DVD conversion products. Most don't measure up because they can't produce video that is even close to the original DVD. DVDxDV Pro is the exception. It is an outstanding product with amazing video quality. I would recommend this product to anyone. The support team is fast and really cares.

Love the tool and it hasn't failed me yet. As I mentioned to the trolls below there is no other tool like it. Not a single other tool has been able to recover video from my vast library when the disc was damaged. The beauty of it is this tool can be taken for a test drive before you buy it unlike other tools which force you to pay for it and then you find out the hard way you've been ripped off because they don't work. Maybe if the trolls below had the slightest clue what a tool of this nature should even look like and upgrade his 13 inch monitor to something a little more realistic he'd realize there's nothing wrong about the GUI. Don't bother replying trolls. I have more interesting things to scrap off my shoes than your idiotic replies.

The application has not improved dramatically in over 3 years. Also, the number of oddly fawning 5 star reviews have made a small amount of bile appear at the back of my throat. ** A note to the developer - stop the 5 star shill reviews **

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! **Also, many of the glowing reviews in here seem suspiciously bogus and shallow! Caveat Emptor!

It works great and is very simple to use. I just select the DVD, make my export selections, and let it go while I'm working on other projects. It couldn't be easier. I've used the "regular" version for years and finally upgraded to the Pro version and am happy with it. When I sent a question to technical support I had a prompt reply.

$80 bucks to basically change the file extension and fix time code breaks and still requires the MPEG-2 codec? A .VOB file on a DVD is nothing more then an MPEG-2 file. Assuming you have the Apple Quicktime MPEG-2 codec ($30 or included with Final Cut) all you have to do is copy the VOB file(s) to your drive, rename the file's extension to .MPG or .m2v and use MPEG Streamclip (free) to fix the timecode breaks and optionally convert it to any other format such as DV or H.264 or whatever. MPEG Streamclip can also be used to split the video using in/out points so that you do not need to post process the entire file. Note that this does not work with VOB files that are encrypted with CSS but works perfectly with any CSS free DVD.

DVDxDVPro is an excellent application that is intuitive to operate and offers many options for the casual and professional user alike. In addition, I find their customer support to be quick and positive. I have been a satisfied customer for over 3 years now.

I've used DVDxDV and DVDxDV Pro for years and have co-workers who use it heavily, daily. I agree that MPEG Streamclip does most of the same things and more. One thing that Streamclip doesn't do is handle DVD's from DVD's from DVD Recorders well. There is a lengthy process where you have to "Fix Timecode Breaks". DVDxDV or the Pro version is much more efficient to work with if your DVD's come from stand-alone DVD Recorders. My main gripe is that DVDxDV and the pro version leave jaggies in areas of high color saturation and movement. Seems like some kind of interlacing artifact. MPEG Streamclip seems to handle the same footage with a more pleasing effect to me.

This program was exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple, easy to use program to extract clips from burned DVDs. I am creating a tribute video for a basketball team and need to break down the game DVDs from the coach into highlight clips for each senior and this program does it with ease. I can precisely cut the clips I want, name them and save them as Quicktime files that will import into either I-Movie or Final Cut for me to create my final product. I highly recommend it.

Excellent tool of it's kind for video conversion with some very useful options. For those that scoff at the price, there is a lighter version which is cheaper, but you get what you pay for then, less options & control! Works for me with 10.4.6 and various outputs to QuickTime flavours.

$80.00? But the program that created the iDVD in the first place was only $49.00 and it came with iTunes, iPhoto, IMovie and iDVD. Is it me, or is there something odd about doubling the fee and giving us only one thing it can do? Obviously, the source material that made the iDVD in the first place should have been backed up as a single file (data burn), or simply bounced back to the CamCorder that made it in the first place. Who is not doing this? Why would you NOT do this?? It takes just seconds to burn a copy of the raw footage file as an image file, and that IS free. When I think of all the programs I get from MacUpdate.com and what some of them do to make life easier - normally shareware for around $10.00 max - this seems to be way over priced. I know for years it's fashionable to rip off MAC users by adding the owrd "PRO" to the title and charge 5 times what the PC users pay for the same thing, but this price tag is a bit over the top, don't you think?? I think you are just begging for someone to put this on Limewire if you ask my opinion.

MPEGStream Clip only operates on parts of the DVD. It can only read small sections of the DVD and doesn't offer a complete solution by any means for extracting DVDs. DVDxDV Pro offers high quality extraction and it allows you to read the entire DVD, not just individual pieces.

Can someone tell me why one should pay $80 for this application when "MPEG Streamclip" seems to accomplish the same thing for free?

Some time ago I purchased an $80 license for this program. No information on upgrades. The upgrades listed on MacUpdate or VersionTracker link only to demo versions of the program which cannot be registered. I have over the last 4 weeks sent six emails to the developers asking for info on obtaining the intermediate upgrades to which I should be entitled. Not a single response. What an incredible waste of money.
