Hello, I just got a new 5.5 gen ipod 30gb (!!!!) and I'm trying to back up my Dvds to it for viewing on my TV later (plus occasionally on the ipod screen.) H.264 sounds like the way to go, but I can't get the new (unofficial-beta?) Handbrake version to produce videos this size that work on my ipod. What is the best program to do this (easily!)? I don't mind having to pay, since the method I'm using now is terribly inefficient!!! (DVD>Mactheripper>FFMPEG...) Thanks, happy holidays!!!
