    Yes, please give a little more information. What bitrate did you use? What settings? (MP4 or H.264?) etc etc, I'll be glad to help! :)

    ive been doing all the steps outlined on this website. http://diveintomark.org/howto/ipod-dvd-ripping-guide/ star wars worked just fine doing this but the concert dvd ive been using (dave matthews band - central park) has not. when ive tried to change the bitrates, the program tends to freeze or not complete correctly. please tell me if you need any more info.

    I followed the steps on that site, but made TWO changes:

    - Upped the average video bitrate from 400 to 768 (the maximum)
    - Changed the audio bitrate from 128 to 160

    The result? Two movies that won't play on the iPod. I'm now trying again with the default values of 400 and 128... will let you all know how well it works (gonna take a few hours to rerip the movie).
