Hi,

I am in the middle of ripping and converting about 500 DVD's for my aTV setup. I use mactheripper and Handbrake/Visualhub on my Macbook Pro, but I have an old XP machine sitting there doing nothing.

Last night I started ripping DVD's and does a quick job of it (about 10 minutes), but I can't find a program to then convert to MP4 format.

Could someone recommend a program to help. Ideally something I could rip multiple DVD's and then setup to convert 8-10 at a time to MP4 overnight/day like I do with Handbrake.

Thanks for any help.

Why not download HandBrake for Windows?

Get the GUI version, obviously.

Thanks, for some reason I thought that handbrake was Mac only. I should have checked that our first.

Anyone know a good program to tag in Win XP??


Thanks again,

I use a Windows machine to rip and encode (faster than my old iMac), but then just copy them to the Mac to tag them with MetaX and to import them into iTunes. I don't know of any good taggers for Windows. If you are going to run your library from a Mac, just use MetaX to tag the files.

How do you do this with Handbrake? :(
I started last week doing all my (just like 220) movies one by one.
