Going from DVD to AVI or MPEG

#1

Hey all,

I have some legal DVD’s that I need to convert to MPEG or AVI - and then on to an iPod for iTunes. Now, I can convert mpeg’s easily enough for iPod format using iTunes. My problem is ripping the DVD content from the DVD’s.

I’m hoping from free software, but I don’t mind purchasing either. Would QuickTime Pro do the trick? I’m looking for something where I can load my DVD on my Windows box and do a straight rip and encoding.

*I am a newbie and video encoding, etc, so take it easy on me.

Thanks in advance,

Hey chef,

Thanks for the pointer. Using that page plus some googling and trial and error, I’ve got a pretty easy system for doing the conversions. As a matter of fact, I’m going to do a podcast on the process in the near future.
