    I've seen a few screenshots of individuals who have been using Handbrake to rip DVDs and populate their iTunes libraries with tons and tons of DVD quality content.

    I also saw some HD content on their, which led me to wonder how they got it. Obviously you can't put a blu-ray disc or HD-DVD disc in the mac to rip the content... so how?

    How are full-length HD movies getting onto people's Macs?

    Downloads from Movie sites like DemonFlicks.com or Torrents. Some might own a Windows PC with HD DVD/Blu-Ray Drive.

    Most people download those illegally.

    Apparently you can plug the Xbox 360's HD DVD drive into a Mac with Leopard and it'll mount the disk. Does anyone know if this can be played or ripped on the Mac? (I don't yet have Leopard to try).

    Only plays DVD not HD DVD so you can't rip neither.
