The fastest video converter? --
I have been trying to get this video done I made but the files are so big and HQ that they lag my software!
They are MP4 and they are HUGE. I have been trying to get them done for the past 2 days but haven't been able to because of the slowness it causes. So I want to downgrade the size so it will help me to create the videos easily.
I am currently using Freemake Video Converter, but that sodding bastard took 6 HOURS to convert in WMV!!!!
So I don't want to go through that again... What is the fastest and best converter? And what format should I convert from MP4

suitability for windows 8? --
hi i am interested in purchasing your dvd ripper and im about to buy a new laptop with windows 8 and as windows 8 is not mentioned i just wanted to check it that it will work ok on this operating system

I'm looking for the best software, free or not free, that will make the best copies from DVD to AVI. I don't mind paying money because making AVI copies will save my disks from the kids scratching or misplacing them. While I haven't stepped things up to bluray yet, I wouldn't mind software suggestions that can incorporate bluray to AVI as well, incase I upgrade my diskdrive to a bluray playback model.

I don't want to make copies of my disks to blank disks, because I'm looking to just play videos off of my HTPC and avoid extra disks all together.
