    I am putting all of my DVDs onto my MacBook Pro. I have been using MetaX to enter all of my metadata, and it has been going fine. The problem is with my Lord of the Rings movies. They are all over 4 GB, so MetaX can not handle them. I did a little research, and found that only 64 bit apps can load a file over 4 GB. So are there any programs for Leopard that can do the job for me?

    Thanks,
    ross

    That is definitely not true. HD movie rips are regularly around 8 GB, and VLC can open them with no problem. I have an Intel Core Duo, so my computer is physically unable to run 64-bit apps. More like a bug in MetaX if you ask me.

    Well I emailed the MetaX developer to see why it would not work. No responce yet. Just curious, how are you ripping HD movies (software, hardware)?

    I'm not personally ripping them; I have a friend who does. Gigabit ethernet is really awesome :D.

    On Windows, I've heard you can use AnyDVD HD, assuming you have an HD-DVD drive or Blu-Ray drive in/attached to your computer.

    Okay thanks. I might have to invest in a HD DVD/Blu-Ray Combo external drive and a copy of Vista.

    I'd do a lot more research first before buying all that stuff; the word of one forum poster (me) is not going to be as good as, say, visiting SlySoft's site.

    Thanks for the link. I am following another HD thread, so I know it can be done.
