    I guess we should have seen this coming, but on ship day, suddenly there are a half dozen or so programs out there to help you rip DVDs and reformat other videos into iTunes for Apple TV. The good news is that they all cost around $30. The question, of course, is how do you pick?

    You don't need a 30$ program to encode your DVDs.

    And yes, if it plays on your iPod it plays on :apple:TV (except games).
