    Save a tree? Who wants to save a tree?

    I live in Oregon and there are plenty trees to go around.
    Now how does "saving" a tree have to do with the encoding?

    Just for the record, it's a Video_TS folder, not a Video_TC folder.:)

    I was approached with this question the other day, but couldn't remember the name of the app. (handbrake), it was not difficult to find. Next time let Google or the advanced search here save your trees.

    Anyway, I second (or is it third by now?) handbrake. Great program.

    Stop world hunger? Stop world hunger?

    I went to McDonalds yesterday, plenty on well fed fat people there.
    Seems to be plenty of 'food' to go around.

    I have a different method, but it works. First, I use mactheripper to extract the VOB files from the DVD. Then I use ffmpegX to convert the VOB files to mp4, .mov, or whatever you need.
