DVD Rip to XVID

Sorry, I know this is a very simple 101 type question, but I have a bunch of movies on my hard drive which I have already ripped from DVD and so I have all the Vob files on my PC now. I want to convert some of them to the XVID format often used for movie torrents on the internet so that I can more easily store them at a smaller file size. I guess it would be best to get them down around 700MB like they do for movie torrents.

I remember doing some conversions in the past which I remember took quite some time to complete and were a bit fiddly to get right. I think I was using AutoGK and some other programs as well possibly.

I would like to find a program which is fast, one stop, and with no fuss. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Cheers…

AutoGK.
