Handbrake is great for ripping DVD video to you system, plus a few other features

https://handbrake.fr/


And AnyDVD has been around for years for ripping as well


I've used Handbrake and AnyDVD for a while and they work great.

VLC media player
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.
VLC is free: http://www.videolan.org/

Any video file you can open with VLC can be transcoded.
Transcode

Transcoding is the process of taking a video file and changing it to a different format or bitrate.

Transcoding in VLC copies the movie to a new file in a different format, so you end up with both the original and new files. This means you need to have enough space on your hard drive to store this extra file. You should also have a reasonably fast computer, as transcoding can be very slow.

In VLC, transcoding is exactly the same as streaming across a network, except that the output is sent to a file instead of a network.
This link explains the process: https://wiki.videolan.org/Transcode/

Software to copy DVD's or CD's that are copy protected can't be sold or distributed legally, so you won't be able to copy those media.

This means you can only rip DVD's or CD's that aren't copy protected.
VLC Player can rip both, CD's and DVD's, besides that it is the best media player available and OpenSource and free. It runs on many platforms, like m$ Windows, Linux and OSX. Below is the Windows download:

Using Handbrake you can select the timeframe you want and then save the new clip.   See my screenshot,

You can see my source file is 3:39, but i've set it to create a new video file that is 1:00 to 2:22 of the original clip.

I forgot to add that Handbrake is free.

If you are thinking of purchasing, AVS4YOU has an audio/video suite that will handle all of these operations (1 year license for $39 USD or lifetime license for $59 USD (29.00 € or 39.00 € respectively): http://www.avs4you.com/

I have used the AVS4YOU software suite since 2009.

Otherwise, to edit videos, you can use Movie Maker which you can download here free: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17779/download-windows-essentials

You can also use VLC to crop/cut your movies. But I don't remember how it is done.

You can check it out here: http://www.guidingtech.com/8802/use-vlc-as-video-cuting-tool/

How to Use VLC As a Video Cutting Tool
The above trick is amazing but the only downside is that the player records the video frame by frame and thus it’s suitable only for small cuts. You will have to sit and watch the video while VLC is recording in the background, so be sure to make it small.
