DVD Ripper Suggestions

Hey everyone, im wondering if anyone owns/knows any good DVD ripping software. I already have Nero, but its a free edition so to use some of its features i need to pay.

Im looking for something reliable, free, no limitations (no watermark especially) and moderately fast: 2-3 hours max.

I have gone through few DVD rippers and some of them only add the file to the DVD in AVI format, so its bad quality for DVD player viewing.

I would really appreciate in any suggestions as i do realise what im looking for is very rare, but hopefully one of you out there owns one Wink

dvdrip and transcode work along with ffmpeg but if you are using a Windows system you will need to install mingw with a few other libraries to make it work.
If you are using a Linux or BSD distribution, you will just need to add an unofficial repository and/or setup user permisiions on the device.

http://www.honeytechblog.com/top-30-free-encoding-conversion-ripping-tools/ <-- use only what has open source in the tag line. These are easier to remove and allow you to customize them.
The next few are if you are willing to take time to compile and build. They require a Linux emulation layer. Don't try unless you have patience.

Here are the links to the open source software.
If anyone is wondering. No, the people who make these programs are not advocating any illegal activity. The designers of the programs have developed them for personal use. They are not responsible for what the user does with them. Nor do they encourage any illegal activity.
There is no tangible reason as to why I have to make a disclaimer but I also know that CNET fears being sued. Don't worry. It won't harm anything.
If you are into compiling, here goes:

http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/ <-- ffmpeg
