    Hey there,
    my sister is going overseas and wants all of her box sets of TV shows on her lappy as she is going to study and needs a way to keep her self entertained, me being the nice guy i am with a mac pro, thought i would do it on my machine... Which leads me to the issue:
    How do i get handbrake to save each disc as individual chapter divx's? i have 30 DVD's of 5eps to get sorted in around 24hrs :O

    Cheers,

    In most tv episode dvds that I've seen, each episode is saved as a title, not an individual chapter. In that case, you can just select which title of the dvd you want to rip, usually by looking at how long each chapter is - for 1/2 hour shows, the episodes are in the 20-24 minute range, so you may see 4 or 5 of those chapters on one dvd. add each title as an individual item to the queue and they will all come as separate files. It should be a pretty easy process, and if you use mac the ripper first, it will help to enqueue multiple dvds at once and just leave your computer ripping for a while.

    BTW I don't think handbrake rips to divx format but I could be wrong on that.

    Hope that helps,
    Good luck!

    I was afraid i would have to go through and manually add each title to the queue ,but being new to handbrake i wasn't sure if there was a way to add all titles.
