    does anyone rip your DVD's into iTunes to watch? if so, what format and program do you use?

    how many full movies do you have?

    I have no 5G iPod, so no real need to at the moment. But, I've seen some guides on it that I'll probably follow when I do buy one eventually.

    Using Handbrake

    I have 61 musicvideos and was planning on adding some movies, but I found that iTunes copy the videos instead of just linking to them. I like to have my movies in the movies folder, and to have double would just be stupid, so unless there is some solution to this I won't be adding any movies.:(

    Mac the ripper, can rip the dvd to your computer, I believe you can get it from MacUpdate.com, then you use handbrake on that file (its not very elegant tbh...)

    I found a separate thread in here that discussed using Mac the Ripper and Handbrake. I'm guessing I'll get heckled for asking this, but does anyone know of any similar solutions to use in Wintel environment?

    Yeah...

    40 gigs of movies and TV shows.

    Mac the Ripper for the DVDs, Handbrake to encode the file from there.

    iSquint for any other videos.

    Why use both when you can just use handbrake to do the whole thing?

    Explanation...

    I like to get the DVD out of my drive as quickly as possible. Just an old precaution about wanting to spin my drive as little as possible.

    And, since my main computer is a powerbook (hence it being slow to convert), I can then transfer the file to a G5 at work or friend's house.

    No reason besides that, though.

    Another thing...

    And if the disk images are already on my computer, I can set up a queue in Handbrake to run all night without having to worry about switching DVDs.

    I tend to do movies in batches.

    i do... i rip the actual DVD into a video_ts file then use that file to make it smaller and put it into an MPEG-4 format using Handbrake Lite.
