You Have 10 Days To Get This $35 Program For Free

Our good friends at Digiarty are celebrating Thanksgiving by giving away free licences for their premium DVD utility.  WinX DVD Ripper Platinum lets you copy your DVDs to your PC or a portable device, so you can now watch your movies on your iPad, phone, tablet, or PC.

The program is currently on special offer for $35, but you can actually get it for free if you're quick.  Head to and click the Get Licence Code button.  A pop-up window will then appear which contains both the licence code and a link to the 27 MB download.

I have checked the download with VirusTotal and it's free of malware and viruses.

Not at all hospitable to deal with. Key did not work to activate. when I uninstalled the program, (immediately) it said, basically, hey, not so fast, how about getting a copy through patronizing our sponsors!
Oh well, almost everything I have ever been informed about at Gizmo's has been really right on. this is one of a few, rare, exceptions.

It Downloaded on it's own to dropbox. Can't do anything with it. Wish it came with instructions for my iPad

These ripper programs get given away so often, it beats me how they can make a living!

by jwevans on 19. November 2012 - 19:57  (102577)

Seriously! It's free and everyone complains it's not good enough for them? Really?
Thanks Gizmo team for doing what you do every day. I appreciate it.

I downloaded another free-by of DVD maker and since than I have nothing but problems Maleware and Troyen virus. So watch out freebys are not always good

As Rob states above, "I have checked the download with VirusTotal and it's free of malware and viruses". Users should employ this same procedure with any software they download before installing it. Sometimes it is not the program itself, but where you get it from that has the potential to introduce malware. Also, this particular category of programs, and especially anything to do with "converters", contains a lot of software with bundled components. Mostly these are toolbars and may not be classified as malware so your own antivirus or indeed VirusTotal might not give a warning. If you install the free version of WinPatrol however, this will give an opportunity to block these items and their related system changes should you miss these during the install process.

Got the license code, downloded program WinX DVD Ripper and installed, entered liicense code and it says invalid code. What is the problem here? Would appreciate your help.

I once downloaded a program you featured for free and, a few months later, got a notice to update the program. At that point, they wanted me to pay. Fair enough, but does that make it an extended demo, rather than free? Or did I do something wrong in the update?

by rob.schifreen on 22. November 2012 - 21:50  (102749)

Occasionally, programs are extended demos rather than being free for life. Obviously, if I am aware of this, I'll point it out, as I did recently with an Office suite where licences were only free until the end of 2013.

But if the company doesn't make clear that the licence isn't everlasting, unfortunately there's not a lot I can do.

Thanks you.
I guess the prudent thing to do is not update one of these programs unless I need to. I've learned (especially with Windows) that newer isn't always better. Generally I check my programs with Secunia PSI ( to see which programs need security updates, and which are just old.

When they give it away for Mac users I will smile. Downloaded a lot of stuff thanks to this site; never any giveaways for Macs.

In fact, since I have moved from a PC to a Mac - quite happy and this not an invitation to start a PC-Mac debate (read it again if you do not understand simple English), I am wondering just how much benefit continuing to receive Gizmo daily is going to be.

I so rarely see a daily newsletter directed towards the OS X even though there are Best Free categories for Mac, ipad, and iPhone.

If it helps any, I got a similar free program for the MacOS from this site months ago. It's all in the timing, I guess. Anyhow, Gizmo's has done a great job of covering multiple operating systems, and that means that patience and vigilance will pay off for you, whatever you're using.

Excellent, thanks. This was available before and I stupidly forgot it was a temporary licence code and couldn't reload it.

by jholiver (not verified) on 19. November 2012 - 2:48  (102537)

If you would not be quite so quick to whine, you get the full version, and you can choose in the install dialog to auto update. ~THANKSgiving~

BTW, Thanks, Rob!

by AntDude (not verified) on 18. November 2012 - 17:48  (102524)
