I use RipIt to to initially rip the dvd onto my mac and then I use handbrake to convert the file to MP4 format in order to put it into my itunes library. I have just recently began putting my TV Show DVD seasons onto my computer and have noticed a change in the quality for the worst. I have watched the MPV format video via RipIt and the quality is fine. Seems like when converting from Ripit to Handbrake MP4 the quality becomes worse. I use the "Universal" setting and have played around with different types of presets and picture settings with no luck. Any suggestions?
