With all due respect as a casual user PAVTUBE FREE works as designed and seems to be current enough to take care of what I have in the way of DVDs. As I understand it this format is on it's way out anyway. I have not gotten more in a few years. No big issue for me. I am not a techie. Simple is best. VLC and POTPLAYER can record the discs although not the saved file. The other players work just as well. AVI is the default output. Quality is no better than the disc.
