    Hey!

    Can anybody help out this mac noob...

    I'd like to rip a dvd on to my mac (iMac 2.4ghz 4gb RAM v10.5.3)
    Then convert it to use on my iPhone (v1.1.4) via iTunes (v7.6.2)
    (all latest versions of the software i believe)

    Which is the most reliable free software for doing this? Apologies if this has been posted before, could only find relevance to "handbrake" software.

    Thanks :cool:

    Habdbrake works great and will rip directly to a format that is good for the iPhone. I would recommend that but that my not be what you are asking.

    I use MacTheRipper to get the movie from the DVD to my computer. Then I use Handbrake to convert the movie from DVD format to .MP4. Handbrake can take the movie from DVD directly to .MP4, but I don't like my DVD drive spinning that long. It shortens its lifespan.

    cheers guys,

    will get both of those progs, thanks for speedy replies!

    Also on the topic of putting video on to iphone, i found an app i would recommend called tooble, it downloads from uTube and transfers it straight in to iTunes!

    I think that only puts YouTube videos on your iPod.


    Just add the ripped video to iTunes and sync your iPhone.

    That's just a disk image. Just drag the app (not the whole disk image) to your applications folder.

    Hi, i tried that and the icon goes in to the apps folder but its greyed out and has a sort of "no access" symbol over it, if i eject the drive will that mean i have to DL it everytime? surely not?
