What does “DVDRip” mean?

Posted on July 16, 2008. Filed under: Definitions | Tags: |

A DVD-Rip is a bootleg video ripped from a DVD source and then released on the Internet in a new format that is easily downloadable. As a rule, they’re much better quality than CAMs, and easier to watch than DVD Screeners.

For the most part, DVDRips range from 300MB in size (MP4 rips) to 1.36GB (2 CD releases with AC3 audio) with the larger releases with quality comparable to the full DVD it had been ripped from.

The most popular (non-scene) releaser, aXXo, releases DVDRips of about 700MB.

I can’t see any video only sound how to see the video downloaded

You need to install the necessary codec packs so the video can be decoded properly.
The Combined Community Codec Pack/ has everything that you need.

An other option is to use VLC media player.
