How to Rip DVD Movie with Lossless Video and Audio Quality

Posted by Bella Brown to DVD ripper, Lossless DVD ripping | Last Updated on Dec.4, 2018

We have to admit the fact that things are looking blue for physical DVD. Even if it'll not go away, but it's dropping off indeed. For one thing, that's because the impact of streaming HD and 4K ultra HD videos, which can be played on various platforms or devices with enhanced quality rather than on DVD players or drives only. For another, the physical DVD itself would take too much space for storage and it's easy to get scratched. Therefore, it's reasonable that you'd like to make a lossless DVD rip to HDD, so as to reserve the original quality of DVD and free up storage space, prevent scratches or damage, and get it playable on mobiles, computers or TVs.

Is the Handbrake Lossless DVD Rip Really Without Loss?

Many of you may have used Handbrake to rip DVD with lossless quality by sliding the Constant Quality to 0, and you will get a "Warning: RF 0 is Lossless!". Or you'll get to know x264 is lossless at RF 0 when you hover the mouse on the module under the Constant Quality. But does it's really no loss of quality? That may not the case. Lossless x264 will make the digital video much bigger as you are decompressing the MPEG 2 video (~55 GB/hr) then compressing those frames losslessly (to maybe 20 GB/hr), but you're still re-encoding the DVD.

A lossless rip of the DVD is making a transfer to the HDD and the data is as it was, no encoding or conversion. In other words, to rip DVD losslessly, you can make a backup of DVD to ISO image, MKV, Video_TS Folder, but with the original MPEG2 codec reserved.
