This tool supposedly rips both DVD and Bluray for free. Only tested on a DVD.
The resulting file (from DVD) is a single VOB. Blurays should output to a single M2TS.
Results for DVD are below:
Disc: The Lord of The Rings - The Fellowship of The Ring [Main Movie=6.3GB]
Time taken to rip: 14 mins 39 sec
File size produced: 6.30GB
File Type produced: .VOB (single file)
Audio Produced: AC-3 (6 Channel) and AC-3 (2 Channel)
Subtitles Extracted: Yes
No quality loss.
Couldn't find any malware. Uses in-program advertising.
Can't hurt to keep in the Toolbox.

Testing a blu-ray.
Tested the last Harry Potter movie (Deathly Hallows Part II). I chose that one because IIRC, both AnyDVDHD and DVDFab/Passkey had to be updated for it and mentioned it specifically in the changelogs.
Gonna try another non-blockbuster movie without elaborate protection just to see if it works at all.Pull! Bang! Darn!
Okay, it worked on the BD of Hero (Jet Li). 31.3 GB in 1 hour and 35 minutes.
On the BD of Harry Potter Deathly Hallows II it simply quit after a few minutes. It left a file of supposedly 22.6 GB, but the runtime in MPC-BE showed as 00.00.00 and it stopped play after a few frames.
It really needs to output to BD folder or MKV *with* chapters instead of m2ts.
Perhaps I shouldn't be too critical, since it is free. But I see no advantage to this when one could simply use the free portion of DVDFab or DVDFabPasskey after the trial expires.Pull! Bang! Darn!
How bad was the Adware that it tries to install?
Can it be deselected?
I couldn't see any adware during the installation. Only ads in the program. But they might add installation adware at any time.
I like the simplicity of your app. I sometimes use it as an alternative to VOBMerge for concatenating VOB files.
Could you tell me how often it is updated?
Perhaps you could start your own thread to encourage feedback from users.
Thank you for the nice suggestion, Transporterfan. We'll think of it.
And regarding the update frequency, it will not be very often, but we will look into bugs and issues as time going to make the software functional.
