I am trying to encode a movie that I ripped using Mac the Ripper. Handbrake makes it pretty much all the way through and then quits leaving me with a 2.5 gig m4v file that I can't play or convert.

Any ideas what is happening?

Most likely a corrupt ripped file--I've had the problem once or twice in the past (though I use RipIt for my DVDs). Try to rip it again with MTR and start again. If that doesn't work, you can try encoding directly from the DVD through Handbrake (with VLC installed on your Mac).
