    A full length movie usually takes about 2.5 hours to fully decode to a .mp4 file using the Apple TV preset. Is there anyway to queue up like 5 movies and just leave my laptop for the day and come back with them all done?

    I don't know how to do this as every time I use HB, I had to pop the DVD into my optical drive

    Unless you "rip" the DVD first, you cannot use Handbrake's queue.

    I suggest you get MacTheRipper 3.0 R14 (as a great place to start and end, if the link still works...

    You spend a little time (15-30 minutes) copying the DVD files to your hard drive. You can then use Handbrake's "add to queue!"

    Nothing like it.

    Ripping is fast. Encoding is slow. I usually leave a queue of ripped DVDs to encode overnight when I am encoding.

    Tough to do when he only has one DVD in his one DVD drive, eh? :)

    I use a free program called DVDfab in windows via Parallels. Encode 5 or 6 movies and queue them up for an overnight run. Plus it only spins your drive for 10 - 15 mins instead of 2 1/2 hours per movie. DVDfab rewrites the files that give normal ripping programs a hard time. Sometimes MTR won't work on a dvd but DVDfab will. Just a thought.
