Admit it... who has put movies on ipod??

Hey there folks,

I am an admitted DVD junkie. And the video ipod is so so dangerous. Admit it, who has ripped one of their DVD's (personal collection) or (well, grrr, I won't say) ... onto their 5G video ipod?

I converted the Bewitched DVD w/ Will Farrell and Nicole Kidman into my ipod 5G and the playback is exception indeed. I really love the in house conversion for the mov to m4v file format read by the ipod done in itunes.

So ipod videos junkie conffessssions? Admit it, everyone loves it. By the way, downloading videos on itunes doesn't count here...

AW

I've got a fair few on mine:
Swingers
Garden State
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Wierd Science
Intersella 5555 (essentially a feature length Daft Punk video)
The Wedding Crashers
The Incredibles
Bruce Almighty

And some others I put on when needed. I also have Series 1-4 of Family Guy & The Stewie Griffin Story too.

Can't say I've watched more than two when travelling to other parts of the country by train, but as I'm heading to visit my parents in the next week ( a 2 1/2 hours train journey) I'll be watching some more.
Its a handy extra to a great device - but I can't seem me getting a proper Video iPod as my video usage makes up a mere fraction of its overall usage.

Famous last words from a self confessed gadget addict!

What frustrates me is that I can't seem to rip my copy of a lot of recent Sony release plus Mansfield Park (Miramax) or Serendepity (Miramax) too. I dislike what the RIAA/MPAA conglom is doing to home owners. brrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Why did you have to use iTunes to convert the DVD rips? Handbrake will convert straight from DVD to mp4. Just make sure you use the right settings and you can get superior quality than what iTunes will give you and it will still be playable.

iLounge has a great guide on doing this with a list of what resolutions are supported depending on which encoder you use, H.264 or MPEG4.

The iPod wlll support MPEG4 video encoded at 576x368 but Apple doesn't say it will. The size of the image is much nicer than 320x240.

Yep. I only convert DVDs that I own and I never share them with anyone else. In fact, the other day I rented a DVD before leaving to go out of town. I was going to take it with me but I didn't have room in my stuff so I copied it to my iPod. I felt so guilty about doing it that I went out and bought the DVD after I came home! Just wanted to make sure that I didn't have an illegal copy...

By the way, I'm a total Criterion Collection junkie. People complain about DVD's a lot and of course, this series alone makes me interested in movies. And yes, those guys were smart enough 2 stick Whit Stillman's Metropolitian on DVD remastered from the Super 16. Criterion is the Mac of DVD format/presentation.

I wish they had more stuff I want to watch in the Criterion Collection. A co-worker of mine is a movie snob and brags about how his Criterion Collection laserdiscs (played on some uber-$$$ laserdisc player) have superior quality to all non-HD DVD media.

Must be the Łber-$$$ player then. I prefer my DVD's over my laserdiscs.

There wouldn't be any reason to. I have heard that some laserdiscs do achieve very high quality (especially for their time), but many are also prone to delamination and rot, like cheap CD-Rs.

I've heard of laserdisc-drives for computers, but don't know much about them. The CD-ROM out-competed the laserdisc for computer use in every way but capacity, so it never caught on.

not yet, but i will be

my goal is to get an ipod video and then rip my kids' movies onto.

then, i'll video-out to 2 screens in the back for our 12 hour drive to my parents.

result: easy to change movies without fussing and no piles of dvds in the vehicle.

anyone with kids will understand and appreciate that.

Urm.. before selling my White 30GB (I thought Apple were releasing the Video iPod at that 'Fun' weekend) I had around... hmmm... 15 DVD Movies? 15 Music Videos (non-iTunes, thank you AOL), and about 5 TV Shows (Ripped from DVD to test)

It was mainly for music, I can't really see myself wanting a Video iPod.. I sold mine in sheer worry.. I never know what Apple are going to spring on me next, plus Steve might have made me NEED a Video iPod

You are my hero. Now I have a "legitimate" reason to give the wife as to why I need an iPod Video.
