    I love movies and therefore want to upload some onto my iPhone 3G. The thing is, I have so many that I've purchased over the years that I do not want to pay for them in iTunes in order to put on my iPhone.

    What other methods/programs have you heard of that allow one to simply upload a DVD onto an apple computer (I have a MB Pro), put it in iTunes, and then format it for the iPhone?

    I read an article in MacWorld once about handbrake. Anyone tried this software for essentially what I just described?

    Let me know how you put your movies on your iPhone, minus simply buying or renting them from iTunes store.

    Thanks!

    Is it pretty simple to use once downloaded? Also, did you download it from the .fr website?

    Thanks for the feedback regarding this application.

    Another vote for Handbrake here.

    It is so easy to use. Just use the "iPhone and iPod touch" preset.
