    I have a question concerning the burning of DVD'd. I have ripped using OXES and have also compressed using DVD2one. I have the video file on my desktop labeled video_TS. What kind of file is it now? And can I play this movie on !movie or ON MY DVD player?

    I rip with mactheripper, compress with dvd2onex, then burn in roxio popcorn which also compresses a little more if its needed. its so easy using popcorn.

    mactheripper does NOT compress, only rips. you can burn with idvd iif you convert the ripped files after compressing, but its and extra and uneccessary step when you can go straight into toast or popcorn or even dragonburn.

    I Use Mac The Ripper to get the Audio and Video _ DVD folders, then i use Handbreak to convert it into AVI -> It's really high quality, I'm happy with it.

    I wonder the same. I do not think that a home dvd player reads AVI file. Maybe he's watching his movies only the MAC or PC winamp or something like that.

    some dvd players read it, but it sucks as a'format' and its biggest bad characteristic is misaligned audio/video, also truncated audio. unless hes ripping, converting to avi, then converting to a .mov, then again to an mpg and burning that, kinda unneccessary.

    No.. heres my story from the beginning:

    1) I wanted to back up the DVD "Some Like It Hot"
    2) Popcorn didn't work cause of the encryption so i used MacTheRipper
    3) I got all the .vob (etc) files onto my hard drive
    4) Turns out the movie was 5.6 gigs so toast or DVD Studio Pro 3 didn't work
    5) I use Handbreak to convert all the .vob (etc) into one playable movie file (It only converts to .AVI, but you can set very high quality and bitrate)
    6) I use compressor to convert the .AVI into mpeg-2 and burn it in DVD Studio Pro 3

    I guess I could bypass the Handbreak program if the movie was less than or equal to 4.7 gigs and just import it into Toast or DVD Studio Pro 3, but this one was 5.6 gigs.

    again, unneccessary, after ripping, use dvd2onex to compress it, and burn that in toast or dvd studio pro 3 or idvd or popcorn.
