I haven't used Handbrake that much, I found a page that listed the settings for videos you want to put on your iPod and that's all I've really done. There was a part where it said to select from a drop down menu what you wanted to rip of the disc, and there were several options... it said to pick the longest one. That's if I wanted to rip a movie off a DVD. But what about ripping special features? Say a DVD has a music video in its special features that I want to get on my computer... is there any way to be sure I'm getting that or do I just have to pick a bunch of the shorter options in that drop down menu until I get lucky?
