Can someone please tell me what is the best program to use to covert a DVD to an Ipod touch. There are tons of programs when I do a search but have no idea what really works or what is a good choice. What do you all use ? What works good ?

Thanks !


:confused:

I picked up VisualHub yesterday and it's pretty fantastic.

Use Handbrake to rip the DVDs, and VisualHub to format them all nice and pretty for your iPod.

Just get handbrake, it rips straight to iPhone format.

I assume they'll have an update soon after the touch ships to address the new formats supported.

Yeah, I got VisualHub mostly so I could batch re-encode all the stuff I already have on here, as well as format it for my PS3 (which is a picky bugger) and burn it to video DVD, if necessary. Very useful.

But if Handbrake does the job, go for it.

I do have a question about handbreak... I used it to get some of my favorite movies to my iTouch, but the video is all choppy with green blocks all over it. I'm not sure what i'm going wrong...
Any suggestions? :confused:

I use handbrake and it works great when switched to ipod format, the only thing was that it wouldn't work on my windows computer, but it worked great when I got my mac.

Hmmm, do you have the VLC libraries installed? That is strange, i haven't seen that, nor heard about it from my parents. They just switched to using it from some PC stuff to do their library. For the 2nd time i think....

The Home Theater forum might have some answers for you!

Hands down, on PC side, the best converter (dvd to whatever you want) I've used is DVDFab. By in large, it is much simpler then other converters I've used in the past.
