Usually, there won't appear such problem, like the video and audio synchronization. Anyway, thanks very much for feedback this. I will report it to the technical staff for improvement. And the watermarks is just the limitation of the trial version. You will bypass it after purchasing the full version.
I downloaded the trial version and gave it a try. I did see the watermark but what has me worried is that when I played the movie in itunes there was a delay in the video and the audio. The video and audio was just not in sync. Is this normal for the trial version or is it something else?
I tried this yesterday on the trial version.. It is wonderful, fast and easy (even for a non techie like me)! Buying it today!

Hi, Thilo. All you mentioned above is supported by this DVD Ripper. It can helps you rip and convert your DVD movies to any video format you like and without compressing any quality of the original files.
Is it possible to extract the DVD VOB files, join them and export the joined file as a MPEG2 without reencoding. Since its already MPEG2 there is no need for it. Its fast and the original quality is maintained ??? Thanks

 Yes, it can help you achieve that. Just have a try!
It is possible that it can merge various DVD movies into one?

Yes, simply click the subtitle box beside the video clip to select the preferred subtitle. If there is no subtitles on the DVD, you can also insert plug-in subtitle.
