    Hi,

    I finally broke down and bought Northern Exposure DVD-season (2)

    I want to rip it for back up, so I can just have the individual episodes in .avi or mpeg4 or whatever. It's a DVD9 DL, DVD so I can't just do the MTR>Toast DVD backup, because it will be heavily compressed (i have no dl burner yet). How would I go about ripping the individual episodes in high quality with handbrake or any other App?

    Thanks in advance.

    I rip mine as H264s at 2500kbps and they look about as good as the DVD.

    Cool, I needed to know a good setting to maintain quality, but is there something I need to do to strip the individual Episodes one by one off the DVD?

    I haven't used handbrake in a long time..

    Enable the queue and add the episodes from the drop down menu under "Title" one by one.
