    Try Handbrake

    Thanks to Jasonbot for that :D I don't have a mac though so cannot use it myself.

    I use "Mac The Ripper" to rip the DVD to my iMac and then use Handbrake to encode to ipod touch format (there is a iphone/ipod touch) setting.

    Or you can do straight from DVD from handbrake, but I like backing up the DVD too.

    May I be so bold as to suggest this thread?

    Also, I'd like to suggest AnyDVD and CloneDVDmobile from Slysoft, in combination they offer the easiest and most useful converters I tried (as the thread says I tried Handbrake, DVD Decryptor, Videora and a bunch of others)

    Good luck with your search!

    I'm a newbie and finding it hard to understand how to use handbrake once i've ripped my dvd using mac the ripper. Handbrake does not seem to recognize the 'source'. So what is the best way to watch my dvd's on my ipod touch?
