Hi

I have a load of unprotected kids DVDs that I want to back up; the idea is that I can take a USB disk on holiday and use a DVD player to play avi files (my daughter has a sony portable DVD player for long haul flights).

I have checked that neither my home DVD player nor this portable player will recognise mp4 or xvid.

I use MactheRipper to rip DVDs to vob.

I used to use handbrake, but now, because .avi is, to paraphrase their website, old fashioned, it no longer converts to avi.

I am now using ffmegx. It works, but it is fiddly and only does one vob at a time, which I then have to join.

Can anyone suggest a good alternative?


Just read the sticky on MActhe Ripper and handbrake.

I shall rephrase my question:

I wish to find a similar programme to handbrake, now that handbrake has dropped .avi conversion. I want it for legal activity. Could anyone suggest a good prog?

Thanks

If you can find a copy, Visual Hub should be able to handle this.

If you can't find a copy, I think Redux Encoder (free) can do it in batches.

MPEG Streamclip can also do that, it also has a list menu where you can import multiple files and convert them in to one file
