Ripping DVDs - Advice Plz

The ƒlint ƒamily is tired of DVDs taking up physical space in our home.
*We need that space for Legos.

Back in 2010 I had ripped my entire music collection using Windows Media Player.

Pros:
  • Automatically rip when disc inserted, eject disc when complete.
  • Configurable rules for naming convention, destination folder, file format.

Cons:
  • None. This was a very easy, smooth process.


How do I do this for DVDs?

Can I use Windows Media Player (like the features, not sure of file formats)?
Can I use VLC (does it have comparable, auto features and configurability)?
Is there some other, * FREE * application which does the task (also smooth, easy)?
Could I pay * a little money * for some super-duper thing which knocks this task out of the park?



Thank you in advance for your help...

Trading opportunities had occurred in the past project.

If moderators could edit this title to, "Ripping DVDs - Advice Plz" that would be awesome.

I use an older version of Freemake Video Converter.

The current version is not wantable for a reason I can't remember.

The only help I can provide was to change your thread title.

I don't rip DVDs.

Older versions of MS Windows I used to copy from Drive D to Drive E, no muss no fuss, just copied. But newer versions of windows won't do that. I guess they got complains from copyrighters.

It's tough to defeat modern copy protections. As soon as a new protection comes out, there is a short lag, then a corresponding tech solution.

I use AcidRip, which MAY be available for Windows. It defeats most DRM schemes. Not all. DVD Decrypter 4.0 works for a majority of the tough cases. Nothing works for all situations.

VLC will work for old schemes only, but I find the interface a bit kludgy. Only way to know is to try it.
