RatDVD is a DVD compression tool which allows you to transform a full featured DVD movie into a highly compressed .ratDVD container format file, without compromising quality and losing the features of the original DVD.

In spite of the fact that ratDVD has not been updated since late 2005, the application still does its job well and it continues to be downloaded by thousands of users worldwide.

The aim of this virtual item is simple: save storage space on your disk by transforming large DVD movies into rat.DVD files which slightly exceed 1 GB of size.

All the files on the DVD will be retained in one file and wait for you to decompress them and find them at exactly the same quality level.

With ratDVD, you won’t lose the features of the original DVD, such as multiple video angles and multiple audio channels, subpictures, full anamorphic pictures, seamless branching and so on.

Furthermore, when you decompress the ratDVD file, you will find again the elements of the original DVD: movie versions, alternate story endings, making of, cut scenes, visual director’s commentaries, trailers.

Functionality is not compromised either and you can still enjoy the original menus and navigation tools.

If there are still features of a DVD that you fear ratDVD could overlook, it is important to know that this software tool also maintains parental levels and user prohibitions if you want to.

You don’t need to worry about any feature, ratDVD has considered them all and in the end, you can decompress the ratDVD files, get back the original files, burn them on a DVDR and watch the movie using a regular DVD player.

ratDVD is a useful application for those who want to store DVDs while preserving their high quality. It may be the filming at an important event in your life or a rare movie you can’t easily find again; the data will be there for you occupying less of your storage space.

Can not install it on my WinXP MCE with nVidia video card. I've read on a forum and they had this problem in 2005 so I was hopping it's fixed by now. Get stuck on installing the encoder and any link to ratdvd website I get error.

Good compression but converting back to DVD takes forever !

Downloading 5 Gb is much faster.
