What is ratDVD?

ratDVD is a proprietary media container file type that supports the same features as DVD-Video. Unlike other container formats like Matroska, it is designed to accurately mirror the exact feature set of standard DVDs, facilitating round-tripping back to the DVD-Video format. It is typically used to reencode a DVD movie, maintaining all menus and features while reducing significantly the overall size. ratDVD works by compressing a full DVD using a proprietary codec named "XEB". The resulting ratDVD file can then be played directly in a computer (as long as the needed codec has been installed) by a DirectShow-compatible DVD player, or converted back into standard DVD format. ratDVDs are zip compressed archives containing XML, IFO, VSI, and XVO files.
