There are occasions in which you may want to back up your DVDs.

DVDPean Video can help you convert DVD video into a wide range of popular video formats.
This program has a modern minimalistic user interface. It is similar to other applications of the same kind, what will probably make you feel comfortable even if you are using it for the first time. This tool supports opening DVD movies from different sources. Thus, you can start a conversion job by simply inserting a DVD disc and selecting the titles or chapters to convert. Similarly, you can also open IFO, VOB and VRO files stored in common folders. To make it even easier, there is a wizard to guide you through this process.

Additionally, the program allows you to crop the video’s frame area and split it into smaller files. Finally, you can also edit video tags to add metadata. In order to help you decide on an appropriate target profile, these have been grouped according to containing formats.
