what is the best software to use to burn a dvd to ipod?
I used dvdfab platinum works perfect. Im still using the free trial. I tried vemode but I wasn’t sure how to use it and I couldnt find any forums on how to so the movie didn’t come out very good.
CloneDVDMobile does a pretty good job and allows you to adjust the bitrate to customize the size you’d like it in. Comes with a free 21 day trial.
VideoRa is free, but is a bit sluggish and not the best output.
Someone also suggested Super once, but it’s like pulling teeth to try and download it…so I decided against trying that one.
i used clonedvd2 and just copied the vob files to the ipod
How would the iPod play the files nick?
HavenÂ´t tried this but itÂ´s probably fine…all their other products are very good.
No idea about this myself, but why bother?..there are others here which work.
I use this all the time for such tasks…fast, and it works. Does tons of different conversions. I consider it essential to have.
Download is no problem…not sure what problem you had MBK…IÂ´ve just downloaded the latest version (25MB…incl all nec codecs etc) and everything was normal.
Yeah, I have seen you recommend Super quite often to members, and you were the member I was referencing about recommending Super…What I meant about the download wasn’t how long it takes but rather that you gotta go from screen to screen to actually download it…
Was gonna try it but CloneDVDMobile has been great for me so I just decided that after going to a third screen while trying to download Super, I decided I didn’t really need it.
YouÂ´re right about SUPERÂ´s messy website…whoever designed that probably came from a porn promoting background…itÂ´s so exaggerated I was even suspicious of it at first. Still…as a freebie itÂ´s worth it I think.
I use Ripit4me to get the dvd to the disk. Once on disk I use DVD Shrink in IFO mode to join the .vob files of the main movie into one big 4GB or so .vob file. Then I use Videora Ipod converter to get it into .mp4 format.
I am currently testing out Mediacoder with the Ipod plugin to convert from .vob files to .mp4. Mediacoder looks good but always crashes for me when I open the settings since I didn’t bother to install firefox. Mediacoder seems to have a “join” mode which could handle the 1GB .vob files, not sure how to use join mode yet.
So I mostly use Mediacoder when I am dealing with a .mpg file and its fast, and Videora Ipod converter with DVDs.
Anyway I am looking forward to seeing new and improved versions of Videora Ipod converter and Mediacoder.
I am using Cucusoft iPod Video Converter Suite , it works pretty good , you can download it at http://www.oursdownload.com/convert-DVD-video-to-iPod-video.html
