A little late, but I came to this section in search of why this piece of crap app always crashes at different points of the conversion.
So please define better. RatDVD IMO sucks. It's bug ridden; an obscure format that takes a VERY LONG time to decompress/transcode. I couldn't say 'how long' because it always crashes.
With good support and in the early broadband days, this program may have had it's place, but now we'll never know.
That being said, anyone using it to share content should be chastised.
BTW, my pc locked up while writing this msg. Indeed, it's ironic as I was giving this app it's 20th shot.
