    I can not find mtr anywhere. Is it still available?? Where??

    Google found it rather quickly but the site was shut down. There are mirrors but the legality is sketchy.

    Thanks, but it will not allow me to download it. It take me to an old forum page each time. I bought my wife an Ipod for her birthday. I am trying to put Friends episodes on it for her and con not do it. Anyone have any suggestions??

    Eh? I you want to rip your DVD's and convert them to be iPod ready you can use HandBrake.


    If you just want the VOB files use Mac the Ripper.

    I am so confused why you want Mac the Ripper if you're making iPod video files. :confused:

    If you rip the disc to your HDD, you can access your optical drive again while the movie is encoding, plus I think you get better performance if the original file is on your HDD instead of the DVD. Thats why I usually rip first.

    I downloaded handbrake and wanted mtr. I read the sticky by clayj and thought that I needed mtr. I have both now. Thank you everyone.

    Yeah, it nice to have both programs then. Sadly, Mac the Ripper is PowerPC only. :mad:
