After downloading and installing it, insert the DVD you want to rip in your DVD-Rom drive and fire AutoGordianKnot.
the “Browse” button next to “Input File”. Enter your DVD drive
directory and then double-click on the “VIDEO_TS” file. Inside, you
will see a number of files with the extension “.ifo”. Double click on
the one with the largest size.
you will see a message stating that AutoGordianKnot has found a lot of
files. These files are the credits, menus and extras of your DVD. To
rip only the main movie, click on the drop-down menu and select the
file with the longest duration
click the “Browse” button next to “Output File”, enter a name for the
file that will be created and choose where to save it.
Under “Audio tracks”, select the language you want and then do the same with the “Subtitle tracks”
you must choose the size of your video. As a rule of thumb, the bigger
the file, the better the quality. You can either choose a pre-defined
size (if you want for example to copy the movie to a cd), choose a size
you want (custom) or enter a percentage for the target quality of the
movie. Generally, for movies up to 120 minutes, a number around 700-800
mb yields very good results, however for longer ones you may want to
choose up to 1.3 gb. Of course, you can choose any size you want but
there is little point in spending more than 1,5 gb.
press “add job” to add it to the job queue, tick “shutdown when done”
if you want your pc to shut down automatically when the ripping is over
and hit “Start”!
to say, the above process can be performed for any type of video. If
you have any questions/comments to make, I will be happy to hear them
