  • Convert DVD to AVI with DV Codec

“I am working with a video editing program called Video Hoops Lt. I need to get a converter for this program for it to work. Anyone please recommend a converter that has the option for AVI with DV Codec (*.avi)?”


I came across the above question when browsing in a DVD forum. This question was put up by a basketball coach who was to make some teaching videos for the players. Dig a bit in Google and you will find most converters on sale output various video formats including common video, HD video, flash video etc. Yet few of them included in DV codec, which is compatible with most editing software. If you are seeking a solution to convert and import DVD to editing software like Video Hoops for editing, Pavtube DVD Ripper should be a fine choice. It helps to convert the source DVD to *.avi and *.dv files with DV Codec with least quality loss. The whole process takes simply several clicks and a few minutes.

Run the program, and click DVD Rom to import source DVD from disc, click DVD folder if the source files are saved in an existing folder, or click IFO/ISO to import image file. You may import all what you’d like to edit and convert them in batch.


Step 3. Set output settings
Now click Format bar and find DV group, select *.avi with the right television system in your area (PAL or NTSC). Then click the small folder icon to determine Destination folder for the converted files.


Step 4. Convert DVD to AVI with DV codec
Check again all the files you want to convert are in the file list and finally click the Convert button to start conversion. What you need is to wait till the progress ends.
