DVD to MPEG program

I want to rip a DVD direct into MPEG format for editing in Windows Media Maker. Is there a good program that I can use to do this. (freeware is great LOL) or paid. So far, I found Easy MPEG lite. have any of you used this? Is it good?
Currently I use DVD shrink to rip them, but it rips into .vob files. Those aren’t useable on WMM or Sonic MY DVD.
Thanks

Virtualdub will do this (freeware)

VirtualDub doesn’t know mpeg2!

VirtualDubMod does.
