Thanks for dotTech’s Free Advertising Initiative , dotTech has been able to bring dotTechies multiple commercial software for free. This post is about another such offering. This time we have teamed up SogSoft Inc.  to bring you Sog DVD Ripper Platinum for free!
Sog DVD Ripper Platinum is a professional DVD ripper that allows users to rip DVDs to multiple different video formats. However, the highlight of Sog DVD Ripper Platinum is not that it can do DVD -> other format conversions, but rather that it can bypass DRM protection while doing it. (Public service reminder: Please only use DVD rippers – such as Sog DVD Ripper Platinum – for activities that are legal.) Here is a chart that sums up the jist of what Sog DVD Ripper Platinum supports:
Now at this point I am sure most dotTechies are thinking “Okay, but who is this SogSoft – I have never heard of them before?” Sure some dotTechies may not have heard of SogSoft in the past, but I am sure many dotTechies have heard of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum . A little bit of digging and research reveals that Sog DVD Ripper Platinum and WinX DVD Ripper Platinum are one in the same; both are sourced from Freetime Software Inc. which is the former name of Digiarty Software Inc. the developer of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. To add icing to the cake, this promotion includes free updates and free technical support from SogSoft.
