    Converting to iPod Video
    Hi everyone, I'm a new convert from PC, glad to be here!

    So this may seem at first read to be another "what software" do i use to convert AVI, DVD, WMV to Mpeg4 but i searched hi and low and i don't think i saw a definitive answer.

    I don't mind paying for a good, fast conversion software, but can someone please point me in the right direction?

    I hear allot about Handbrake and other free tools, but are the good? I used to use Cucusoft when i used a PC.

    Thanks

    Never used handbrake. I use VUZE personally it can't possibly any easier. Just drag and drop any format to the left to to the icon of the ipod and bam you get a few options on quality and such and it does the rest for you. I also use it for streaming music/videos to my xbox360, ps3. Also a great torrent downloader.

    Handbrake is an excellent bit of software, and it's free. Their forums aren't that friendly so do your homework, read and search before you ask questions.

    I'm liking Handbreak, it's a wonder it's free.

    LiveD83 also mentioned VUZE. That looks very interesting too.
