Hi im a noob when it comes to MAC but I jump the bandwagon because vista is so much slow. My question is what is the best video converter on MAC or is there any out there that is freeware.

IMHO, Handbrake gets the job done nicely. It has a set or presets too if you want to encode videos for certain devices.

That's great.

At its best, entertainment is going to be a subjective thing that can't win for everyone, while at worst, a particular game just becomes a random symbol for petty tribal behavior.

We have a lot of what we call "Q & A spammers". They sign up with two accounts, one to post the question, the other to answer it with their crap product as the answer. In fact, I just nuked one of them out of this thread, because their latest tactic is to find old threads and respond to them.

It certainly helps when people use the "report post" function, which is how I identified this particular one.

Keep up the good work, folks!

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

That is very good to know. I was wondering why we had so many of these threads each week and why people wouldn't just use the search function. Thanks for the info.

The spammers are getting very sly also, willing to spend even more time on a forum to make their posts appear as legitimate.

Like Infancier above - 1st post was to respond to the "Q" spammer with one of the typical spammer DVD rippers - and the one above - listing the "Shareware" rippers - they're all the same piece of software with different front ends - the spammers don't care which one of them you buy - because it's all going to the same place

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
