Q: “ Ripping DVDs with Kodi? Just wondering if there's an addon that will allow me to rip a dvd to my library with Kodi. It's not all that hard to rip a DVD and put the video on my server, but if I could find an easy to use DVD ripper addon, it would be great to be able to do it from within Kodi (XBMC).” 

Kodi has its supported video formats like MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, MPEG-4 SP and ASP, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), H.265 (as from Kodi 14) HuffYUV, Indeo, MJPEG, RealVideo, RMVB, Sorenson, WMV, Cinepak, but DVD is not one of them.

I searched widely, and many guys recommend Pavtube DVD ripping software, it will bring the best audio / video for watching on Kodi. Unlike some free DVD ripping tools like Handbrake and MakeMKV, Pavtube DVDAid is an easy-to-use yet professional software to help you to solve the issue by giving us the ability to store our purchased physical DVD discs to Kodi(XBMC) for smoothly playback in HTPC on Windows.  For those who're using a Mac OS X machine, please try its Pavtube DVDAid for Mac.

    Note: Today, we're just going to show you the simplest steps to convert DVD to XBMC Kodi file. 

    Step 1: Launch DVD Ripper, click "File" to import DVD file into the program.

    Step 2: Select MKV/MP4 as the output format

    Click "Output Format" option to reveal the format drop-down list. In the "Format" > "Common Video" column, find "MKV(Matroska) Video (*.mkv)" or "H.264 Video(*.mp4)" or H.264 High Profile Video(*.mp4) and choose it as the output format for using on Kodi (xbmc) and playback on android tablet.

    Step 3: Click on "Convert" on the lower right corner to launch the ripping process of DVD to XBMC Kodi. Wait for all the DVD files to be converted.

    The two status bars show estimated time about the process. If you plan on walking away from the computer for sleep, tick the "Shut down computer when conversion completed" option. Default is unchecking.
