I have a bunch of concert DVDs that I'd like to rip to the highest quality format possible. I'm looking for some software (ideally free) that will let me do this. I want to be able to keep the chapter markers and have the ability to name the chapters. I'm thinking I'd need to rip to MKV to get the highest quality and keep the chapters like this.
I know I could easily search for "Free DVD ripping" but that just gives me a ton of results that feel spammy. That's why I'm looking for recommendations here. I'm on Windows 8.1.
Edit: I think VLC can do what I'm looking for, but it doesn't seem to be working correctly. When I try the "convert/save" menu option and select my DVD drive, and my quality/output settings and start the process it seems as though it is doing something. My DVD drive ramps up and it definitely is trying to convert the media. It creates an MKV output file of a good size (~5GB for a 2 hour video) but when I open the file it does not play at all.
I noticed the VLC told me the MKV muxer is not included with VLC, maybe this is my problem. How do I get the muxer? I tried searching around but could only find other programs, no "muxer" or codec file that I was expecting.
