    Specs:
    17" G4 Powerbook, 1.33/1g/80g
    how do i take the DVDs I own, and put them on my ipod video?
    What software would I use for this, i'm using a mac (of course), and would like to take some of my own dvd's and i guess convert them to mp4 format?

    any help would be great.

    thank you.

    Import the DVD as a Quicktime AVI with Handbrake, then use iSquint to convert them to MP4 for your iPod. Then drag the final video into iTunes and throw it onto the iPod.

    That's my workflow anyhow. Everything's free and it takes about an hour and a half on a Dual 1.8ghz G5.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    No need for iSquint, Handbrake can do it all Just use Handbreak to rip them directly to iPod compatible format. When you rip, use the following Handbreak settings:

    Codecs: AVC/H.264 Video / AAC Audio
    Framerates: Same as Source
    Encoder x264 (baseline profile)
    Average Bitrate: No more than 768
    2 Pass encoding is optional (I would recommend it)
    Audio as you desire
    Picture 320 x 240, for Widescreen to fullscreen use custom and set the left and right to a minimum of 96 each, top and bottom as you desire until the picture looks good.

    RIP.

    That's it. I've ripped over 140 DVD Movies and many more TV show DVDs with handbrake and it's EXTREMELY reliable. In fact I'm ripping the Godfather series as I type this.

    Sweet! Thanks baggss, I didn't even realize the new version of Handbrake would do that!

    Yeah, Handbrake is REALLY reliable, it's awesome. I've ripped tons of movies and dvds. I find you can get away with a 400 bitrate, instead of 768. It looks fine with 400, past that you really can't tell the difference. But, iSquint is also nice to have just for files from the 'net (legally obtained).

    hmm, I kind of just ran into this and i'm happy that I did

    here is another Q about handbrake I guess

    say i want to backup a dvd movie that I have... how would I do that? with windows, you just use dvdshrink... you put the movie in, it copies it, compresses it (or does whatever it needs to do) and then puts it into the HD, and burns that into a dvd movie in a dvd movie format... so it basically clones it and shrinks it so it fits a 4.7gb dvd...

    how do I do that?

    How? You complain to your senator and vote accordingly in the next elections...

    Because legally it's a murky issue, and the movie industry (and their paid-for senators would prefer you paid for every different medium you watched your movie on).

    He is saying that the legality of doing so may be questionable.

    For what you want to do you would use MacTheRipper to copy it to the desktop and then Toast to rip it back to a DVD.

    Dang, baggss beat me to it.

    Yeah, MactheRipper will rip the DVD, then throw it in Toast to burn it.

    does it shrink it, so it can fit a 4.7? or is that part of toast's job?

    I believe that is an option it Toast, though it's been a while since I used it....
