Converting DVD to AVI

What is the easiest way to do this? Also I notice on many P2P sites that when people do this one DVD usually results in two avi files of around 700MB each. Any advice appreciated


Easiest way to do this is to use a program called Dr Divx.

Two avi files at 700MB each are usually encoded with the original 5.1 dolby audio intact. Since the audio can take up alot of space its better to do encode it to two files. This is encoded as one big 1400MB file and the audio is not encoded but streamed directly into the avi and then just cut in the middle using an avi editor like Virtualdub.

i recommend Auto Gordian Knot.

If you want more control you can get gordion knot
