Pros
  • Quick conversions
  • Alters video quality to suit required file size
  • Chops black bands around a video
  • Free to use
Cons
  • May become unstable sometimes
  • No 64 Bit version yet

After the free download it will ask you to also have VLC media player, you will not be able to use it without the VLC download, it will automatically reject any DVD loading until this step is completed. This is not simple and easy because you then have to set up the player, not user friendly and does not load DVD easy as previous reviews have said, be prepared to spend some time messing around and then spending more time making sure it rips 5.1 surround sound for your Apple TV application.
