What is DvdRip??

All the time i use to download the movies i used to see the stuff like DVDRIP by AXXO or KLAXXON.I used to wonder what this could mean? Lately when i searched i found the following Answer

What Is Ripping?
Ripping is the process of copying audio or video content to a hard disk, typically from removable media or media streams. Digital audio extraction is a more formal phrase applied to the ripping of audio CD's. Ripping is distinct from simple file copying, in which, the source audio/video is not formatted for ease of use in a computer file system.

For example, the hierarchy of files making up the audio/video data on a DVD-Video disc can be encoded into a single Avi file. In addition, the copied data are often compressed with appropriate Codecs. Ripping is often used to shift formats, and to edit, duplicate or backup media content. Media files released on the Internet may describe the source of the rip in their names.One among the many ripping styles is DVDRip.
I have also seen PreDvdRip,but am not sure of what it is!!

A DVD-Rip is a bootleg video ripped from a DVD source and then released on the Internet in a new container that is easily downloadable such as DivX, XviD, MP4 AVC, or more recently, MKV.

For the most part, DVD-Rips range from from 300MB in size (MP4 rips) to 1.36GB (2 CD releases with AC3 audio) with the larger releases with quality comparable to the full DVD it had been ripped from.A DVD ripper is a computer program that facilitates copying the content of a DVD to a hard disk drive. They are mainly used to transfer video on DVDs to different formats, to edit or back up DVD content, and for converting DVD video for playback on media players and mobile devices. Some DVD rippers include additional features, such as the ability to decrypt DVDs, remove copy preventions and make disks unrestricted and region-free.

I have never Ripped any till date as it is illegal in most parts of the world.In USA ripping is legal for the Software Backup's, but ripping the music Cd's is a punishable Offense.But for the people Who want to try it out and keep the copies in their home,Here are some of the Links for the Software u could use for Ripping.

I have now realized how piracy has grown up so much!!!
