    ....and don't say Handbrake!...the audio volume is reduced by 50% when I use Handbrake, I need a converter with a volume boost facility or at least one that doesn't decrease the audio level for some reason.

    DVD Catalyst 4

    Tools4movies.com

    It is not the fastest, but it is one-stop conversion and it will stack multiple formats (iPad, iPod Touch, Droid??) if you want to convert for all your toys in one session.

    FWIW

    But as you can probably deduce from my thread that if your utilising Handbrake for use on the ipad or iphone be prepared for very low volume levels. Lots have people have commented on this stange fault.

    I tried Handbrake last night and it was going to take over 20 hours to rip a 2.5 hr. movie using the iPad presets :confused:. Is that normal?

    A 2.5 hr movie would usually take me 45 mins to convert. It really depends on your computer as it is very cpu intensive.

    On Handbrake? I'm running an Intel i7 processor with 8 GB of RAM. Maybe I just didn't let it run long enough for the estimated time to drop, but it was definitely at around 20 hours estimated to complete for about the first 30 minutes before I aborted. I should also add I was trying to convert a physical DVD as opposed to a file already on my computer, if that makes a difference.

    Theres definitely something going on there. I also use physical dvds and im running an i5. Might be something with the preset maybe 2pass encoding. I only use one and i use the universal preset so it can be viewed equally well on ipod touch apple tv and ipad.

    I've never had any low volume issues using HandBrake. I run the OS X Version. I have converted DVDs and other various formats in SD and HD flavors. I stopped converting formats a long time ago. I just download them already formatted to what I need. Converting takes too long and I don't have the patience for it anymore.
