Now that I have AppleTV I plan to convert my most frequently watched DVD's to AppleTV. What is the best program to do this? I have heard some are good at converting to Video iPod but I'm not sure what kind of quality I will get on a big screen with AppleTV.

Thanks for the advice. Should I look into Handbrake or MediaFork? It says how MediaFork is the newer product but still in beta.

MediaFork is Handbrake. The name change was temporary only.

Check the HandBrake Forums, there is a lot of good info on ATV there.

is the best one that I've used. so far have transfered about 200 dvd movies to ATV format and have used Handbreak(old version) & MediaFork (new version), MacTheRipper, MediaHub and iSquint. Some problems with the old handbrake version (couldn't get through the 0 errors) and had to use a work around with MacTheRipper to create one VOB file, then encode that with iSquint, then later paid for MediaHub. Have gone exclusively with MediaFork for the last two weeks and haven't had a major problem yet.

There should be a new Beta of HandBrake out in the next several weeks. It will 0.8.5 Beta 1. One of the new features will be that it will have a default setting for AppleTV ripping.

If you have the skill, you can download the svn from the HB site and compile the latest and greatest.

read somewhere that apple tv cant play a h264 file.

so youll have to encode in mp4 format, which is faster, but files will be bigger for same quality

I Googled a program that can convert DVD's to Apple TV. It's very powerful, practical and convenient to use. It helps you convert DVD to Apple TV video MP4 and Apple TV audio MP3, M4A with fast speed and perfect quality.

There's a Mac Version available as well.

Try this program MP4 Converter for Mac. I've used this on .avi files and it has converted them very well into .mp4's that I can import easily into iTunes.
