Would someone kindly post a tutorial
on how to rip movies using VLC and
HANDBREAK (or any other software)
and then getting it into iTunes to upload?
Please include any necessary settings
(including bitrate, etc.).
Hey thanks for this also didnt know that I just have been renaming the movie I would love to have the titles and such going to give this a try now with Tommy Boy.I just put in the disc, open HB, and select source as the DVD. HB scans it for a second and VLC breaks protection. Then I chose "universal" setting. I leave everything as it is (bit rate, quality, etc.). And then click start. Takes about 30 minutes.
This creates an m4v file on the desktop. Then I use a program called MetaX. This let's you add actors, director, description, artwork, etc and it auto imports it into iTunes when done.
Never had any problem at all with this.
For tv shows, I do the same only in HB you have to select each episode in the "titles" menu individually and add them to the que. Each episode becomes a seperate m4v file. You can batch edit them with MetaX. Works great.
I use a program called subler. i like it better than metax since it writes the info faster and i have had no problems with any movie that ive used with it.warning tagging into metaX has corrupted my movies and they will not play in itunes now...Arrgghhh have to cut 4 movies all over again
