    HandBrake only converts DVDs. try VisualHub. it also has an iphone preset.

    well depends on how you classify good? i think its very good. VisualHub is just as good as HandBrake in terms of speed and quality. VisualHub uses ffmpeg to encode and HandBrake uses open source (L)GPL libraries so they both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    ok. good luck with your encoding! :) remember it will usually take over an hour to encode long movies as your converting into a new codec.
