I will probably get my pants pulled down and my bum slapped here (which wouldn't be a bad thing - I'm looking at you ladies ) but since Handbrake seems to have taken a step backwards with its latest update and VisualHub being discontinued what is the best way to rip DVDs for my ATV now? I've been searching and I keep getting different ways of doing it using different techniques and apps etc. Then I look a little deeper and some seem outdated, others no longer recommended etc. My question is then... Today being the 23rd December 2008, how do YOU rip your DVDs for your ATV? List the apps in order of use and any particular steps you take. i.e. 1. insert disc. 2. Run fairmount/MTR etc. Hopefully this thread will become useful to newbies wanting to experiment with different techniques and to see what suits them. I for one am looking for a new way to do things. My way 'was'... 1. Insert disc 2. Open Handbrake 3. ATV preset 4. Done However the new encryption in DVDs plus Handbrakes new reliance on VLC seems to produce more duds than good rips (for me at least). So fire away, list your latest techniques (that work). As newer techniques/apps appear this thread can be updated. Please don't discuss pirating and the ethics behind ripping. I'm talking about DVDs you own (even though thats still a grey area).
