    I have a Dave Matthews concert on DVD (this is legal to make copies, he allows people to tape his shows) and I want to put it into .mpg or .avi or possibly even .wma so I can share these files on the internet.

    How do I do it? (Shareware/freeware preferred)

    Whats the best compression method? It doesn't have to be great quality, so the lowest Mb per second would be best!

    What format should I use to share with PC users also?

    Handbrake, google it. And its best if you use and MP3 encoder for the sound. So I believe the setting to use in Handbrake would be ffmpeg with MP3.

    Thanks for the quick reply... I tried out the program and it's really easy to use.

    So what do I choose for Output Format? Should I choose "MP4 File / MPEG-4 Video / AAC Audio" or "AVI File / MPEG-4 Video / MP3 Audio"?

    you most likely want to do MP3 output.
