WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro for Windows

As someone who loves watching movies, I never miss out on a chance to pounce on the flicks that excite me. Personally, I use my iPhone or iPad to watch videos as it’s more portable and I can comfortably carry it anywhere. That’s the prime reason why I have had to rip several DVDs to convert videos in the desired format to play on my preferred device.

Many DVD ripping tools do a fairly good job in getting the task done. But very few of them offer desired flexibility and have the support for various formats. Moreover, the outcome doesn’t have the same quality. However, WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro—the DVD ripping software for Windows belongs to a different territory and has all the bases covered. So, what makes it stand out?

WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro for Windows

WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro for Windows Supports A Huge Range of Formats

The first thing that I like to see in a ripping tool is the compatibility with a number of formats. DVD Ripper Pro is blessed to have the support for a plethora of formats including AVI, MP4, MKV, MPG, WMV, MOV, MTS, M4V, ASF, DVC, MTS, M2TS, WEBM, FLV, SWF, VOB, F4V and more. That means you will hardly run out of options while dealing with DVS.

Incredibly Fast Ripping Speed

Another notable quality of DVD Ripper Pro is the ability to get through the assigned task with blazing speed. To be honest, I was really surprised to see the speed with which it ripped a full-length DVD in just around 5-10 minutes.

The software delivers the desired result very consistently. As a user, this is exactly what you would want to have from a ripping tool. I have used quite a few ripping tools, but the kind of efficiency that it provides is unmatched. It makes the entire process look ridiculously straightforward.

Selecting a suitable audio and video codec is pretty simple. With a number of pre-defined video profiles on your disposal, ripping DVDs for playback is never a big deal.

No Loss of Quality

To me, the biggest highlight of this DVD ripping tool is the ability to preserve the quality of your movies. There are very few tools that can do it so immaculately. Whether it’s sound quality or picture quality, the software ensures the original quality of a movie remains intact.

Once you have converted your favorite movie in a specific format, you can play it on your smartphone or tablet. I bet, you would hardly notice any loss of quality.

How to RIP DVDs Using WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro on Your Windows PC

Step #1. Once you have installed WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro on your computer, launch it.

Note: The app lets you work with your ISO image and DVD folders.

Step #2. Now, simply pop in your DVD. Then, wait for a few seconds until the disk has been analyzed.

Step #3. It will automatically identify and select your main movie. But you can choose to rip other flicks.

Check out the cool filters and effects to add some additional charm to your movies. Don’t want to have some unnecessary parts? No problem, you can also trim your video.

Step #4. Once you have selected your output settings, hit the “Run” button.

That’s pretty much it! You would get your ripped video in just a few minutes. Then, you can watch it on your computer or transfer it to your iOS or Android device to watch it with fun.

Price and Availability

DVD Ripper Pro is compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, 8, Vista and XP. Its single lifetime license is available for $29.95. While the lifetime/1 PC

DVD ripper and video converter come at $$39.95 (40% off), the lifetime family license for three PCs are available for $69.95 as against the original price of $89.95. Keep in mind this is a limited time offer hence; you will have to hurry a bit to get this deal.

The Verdict

I have found this DVD ripping software spot on when it comes to functionality. Boasting high-efficiency, the wide range of compatibility and top speed, it’s got everything you would want from a tool. If anything I would want this software to have sooner than later is the macOS compatibility.

As for price, I think it’s competitive and isn’t high at all. Should you wish to have an exceptionally proficient tool to let you rip DVDs with optimum ease, you shouldn’t look beyond  DVD Ripper Pro.

How to Block Calls and Texts on the Galaxy S9

How to Block Calls and Texts on the Galaxy S9 is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

If you want to block a phone number from calling you on the Galaxy S9, we have you covered. This guide will show you how to start a blocked call list, and how to stop text messages too. Whether you’re trying to avoid telemarketers, unknown numbers, or dodge your ex, these are the steps you’ll want to take.

We all have certain numbers we don’t want to hear from. Or, if someone won’t stop texting you we can block that too. You can send numbers directly to voicemail, or just block them completely and you’ll never even know they called. Let’s get started.

How to Block Calls on the Galaxy S9

You can always drag the red phone icon during an incoming call to ignore the call, but if you want to completely block a telemarketer you have to add the number to a blocked list. And while there are dozens of apps on Google Play that do this, Samsung has controls built right into the phone.

From the home screen, tap on the Phone app Tap on the 3-dots at the top right of the screen, then select Settings Select Block Numbers to get started

For one, you can enable Block unknown callers so you never get calls from a number you don’t know, or that doesn’t register. That’s a great place to start.

Enter the number you wish to block OR tap the Portrait head icon and go find and block a number from your contacts list Make sure you flip the Block Numbers switch at the top of the screen to Green (On)

We’re all done. Now, your Galaxy S9 will immediately recognize and block that specific number whenever it calls you. Alternatively, you can tap on a number from your recent calls menu then tap “Block Number” at the bottom right of your screen. Perfect for getting rid of a number that just called you.

How to Block Texts & Numbers on the Galaxy S9

You can follow similar instructions to block text messages and more using Samsung’s Messages application. In fact, Samsung offers even more blocking tools and options in its text message app. So, fire up Samsung “Messages” and follow the instructions below.

From the home screen or app tray, tap on the Messages app Tap on the 3-dots at the top right of the screen again, then select Settings Select Block Numbers to get started

As you can see, Samsung will let you block numbers or entire phrases. The text message blocking tool is easier to use than the Phone blocking system, too, for whatever reason. You can dial a number and block it, find one from your messenger inbox, or look up and block a number from your contact list.

Enter the number you wish to block OR tap to find one from your Inbox or your contacts list Then, block entire phrases from coming through in text messages

Add new numbers to the blocked list, then tap back and add a phrase. That way if you keep getting spam texts about a free vacation, or “WINNER” you can block those specific phrases. Just keep in mind that this will block those words from anyone, even friends and family if they say that word.

That’s it. You’ve successfully blocked specific numbers from calling or texting your Galaxy S9. It’s worth mentioning that these instructions work for the Galaxy S8, S8+, Note 8, and likely most older Samsung smartphones as well. It’s a system-wide setting Samsung offers for smartphone owners.

Additionally, you can find dozens of third-party “Call Blocker” apps on the Google Play Store. And while some have a lot of fancy features or controls to get rid of spam, the free built-in tools detailed above are more than enough for most. Before you go, take a peek at these 35 Galaxy S9 Tips & Tricks.
