    Hey all

    I was at a friends house and he showed me a dvd of some movies he had made. I used a program called MacTheRipper to rip the entire dvd, so now I hav ea folder with the video_ts and audio_ts folders in it. How should I proceed?

    This aint pirate operation, by the way. :)

    Thanks

    Does it fit to a DVD-R?

    Then burn it using toast......

    Probably like a zilion other tools to burn it to a disk...

    Yep, use Toast. Make sure that you choose 'DVD-ROM (UDF)' from the Data tab. Then just drop the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS directories in there. Also make sure you give the DVD a name, I think this has to be all capitals with no spaces (not certain, but it's better to be safe than sorry).

    Use ffmpeg to encode it to DivX.
    Just search for it ("ffmpeg") on versiontracker.com.

    Jag doesn't like DVD name that have spaces in them.. always use a _ . Those never mound on my desktop (no probs with lower case).
    Panther doesn't seem to mind though, they mount fine.

    You can also use mencoder to convert to a Divx file. It's very easy and fast to do.

    You don't need Toast

    Assuming the video_ts folder is small enough to fit on a DVD-R, download free software called DVD Imager which will make a .img file out of the video_ts folder. You can burn that in Disk Utility. It'll play fine in any DVD player.

    you can also try "handbrake" which I've found useful, and easy to use. Also found on www.versiontracker.com

    Handbrake is a great tool (I rip every DVD in my posession using it), but it's not what you're looking for. Handbrake is simply a ripper that encodes the DVD as a .mp4 or .avi file(as far as i can tell, neither are playable on a DVD player), and cannot facilitate re-burning. I'd look into toast or recompression software from macupdate.com.
    good luck,

    Wow thanks for all of the help guys, I downloaded handbrake, ffmpeg, and mencoder.

    But I dont think I made myself very clear. :) I did not intend to reburn these videos. I wanted to compres them and keep them on my hard drive. Handbrake seems to be doing the job.

    Thanks again!
