DVDx in Windows
DVDx makes short work of ripping a DVD to DivX format.

Backing up DVDs is regarded as fair use in some parts of the world but is still strictly a legal no-no in most territories. DVDx 4.0 is one program that enables you to format shift onto a different device or to make an encoded backup, though it’s always going to be up to you to find out whether it’s legal to do this in your location. This is, of course, of no concern if you actually own the copyright to the video concerned.

Due to the structure of a DVD, it’s not always easy to find the video, extract it and then encode it to whatever form you want. DVDx 4.0 helps to identify the main titles on the disc and it provides a range of format options for encoding, so you don’t have to worry about getting each setting right for your device. The program also enables you to browse to an existing video file on your hard drive and queue it for encoding to a different format.

DVDx supports most popular formats, including MPEG2 (DVD), QuickTime, Xvid/DivX and Flash video, making it equally useful for converting video to play on a wide variety of devices, portable or otherwise.

DVDx is pretty easy to use. Start by opening the disc or chosen file in the player and selecting the audio and video streams you want. You can verify you've got the right stream by playing back a short section. Choose the target device from the drop down list and then tick the preview box. Encode a short preview and play it back to check it’s as you expect then clear the preview box and opt to encode the whole video.

This may take an hour or so, depending on the speed of your computer and the length and type of video you're converting, but once done, you’ll have a video file ready for playing in your device of choice.

Verdict:

A reasonably solid DVD backup and video transcoding tool, but it can be foxed by some copy protection methods.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
