    Hey, guys. I was wondering if anybody can help me. I've tried SO MANY applications and no luck with converting VOB formats to AVI. I'm looking for freeware too!

    Let's see...I've tried iSquint, Drop2dv, DiVA, MPEG Streamclip, ffmpegx, and a few others but didn't work with the files that I have. Or maybe an easier question would be a DVD ripper that will automatically turn them into .AVI files??? I'm not sure. If anyone could help me I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I've always used VisualHub for all my video format conversion needs and it has worked just fine. Have you tried that one out?

    No I have not. But I will certainly give it a shot. Thanks!

    It's by the same people who make iSquint. Only thing is, it's not free. But, if you're doing this type of thing often I feel it is worth the price tag. If this is just a one-of situation for you though, it may not make sense to pay for it.

    Regardless, just trying to offer some assistance...

    Handbrake can rip to AVI, but unless you absolutely have to have it be AVI, then you should rip it h264 (choose your container, mkv or mp4). Much higher quality at the same file size.

    Visualhub is amazing, it's one of my favorite apps.

    Take an older version of Handbrake (http://mac.oldapps.com/handbrake.php?version-history), as the current one has got rid of the .avi container.

    No, unless you have the QuickTime Playback Component installed, which costs 20 USD.
