As of DVDx 2.5 release, the binaries avaialble from Source Forge are "ripper free", called Standard Edition.
You can build an Ultra Edition with DVD ripper feature with Visual Studio 2005 Pro, Directx SDK and WMFSDK.
The DVDx 2.x Ultra Edition binaries and installers are available for dowbload from DVDx web site.
Following on the success of DVDx 2.6 release, we're proud to announce the availability of DVDx 2.7 release, uploaded on labDV server and DVDx web site (soon on Source Forge server, but Starbuck needs to reconfigure its SF access). What's new in 2.7:
We're proud to announce that we succeeded in migrating the whole DVDx project to the latest Windows development platform: Microsoft Visual C++ 2500 Professional with Intel C++ 9.1 Compiler.
This has immediate benefit for the end-user by fixing bugs introduced by previous compiler, such as when DVDx silently crashes when exiting Input Settings with 44.1KHz or 48.0KHz (no conversion) option.
This will have great benefit for developers, so end-users, by providing new productivity features such as navigation across C++ objects declarations and definitions with one right-click. Intel 9.1 C++ compiler will provide latest greatest Hyper-Threading and Multi-Core optimization. And x64 cross-compilation will be facilitated. ... read more
Now you can encode a SVCD in real time (25FPS) with DVDx 2.4 running on a Pentium 4D 830 (Dual Core 3GHz) and encode a DivX at 75FPS. So you can encode a 1h30 movie in 30 minutes, including the DeCSS process, which makes DVDx likely the fastest DVD ripping solution ever!
Performance: - Release executable is optimized for Intel Pentium 4, Intel Pentium M, new Intel Pentium 4 with Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) and compatible Intel processors (new AMD Athlon 64 support SSE3) - Internal encoders not changed, but now compiled by new Intel 9.0 compiler for the official binary release, likely more reliable and faster (DVDx 2.4 is faster than DVDx 2.3: VCD +15%, SVCD +10%, DivX +5% on SSE3 processors and VCD +12%, SVCD +5%, DivX +5% on SSE2 processors) ...
