rip DVDs with Handbrake

Handbrake logoWant to take your DVD and watch it on your iPod, PDA, smartphone, or just build a movie collection inside your computer? Simple and easy it is with Handbrake, a multi-platform (Windows, Linux, and MacOS X) DVD to mpeg-4 converter.

Handbrake will allow you to extract video, audio, and subtitles of the DVD. The output formats (containers) are: MP4, MKV, AVI, and OGM. It uses mpeg-4 and H.264 video encoders and AAC, mp3, and vorbis as audio encoders.


Using it is pretty simple, you’ll see one large window where you’ll choose the format, the codec, and adjust audio / video / subtitle settings if needed.

  2. Hi, thanks for your coemmnt.The only way I can see it working in the UK long-term is with the likes of BT ignoring the usage, like they will be doing until January.It’s hard to imagine how the smaller ISPs will cope.

  3. Mary Fiore is the wedding planenr extraordinaire. Since she has always been unlucky in love, she decides that those that can’t wed they plan! While crossing the street, her heel becomes lodged in the street grate. As she tries to free it, a dumpster comes loose heading her way. In the nick of time, she is pushed out of the way, but hits her head on the pavement and looses consciousness. When Mary comes to, she finds out that handsome Dr. Steve Edison saved her. Her assistant sets up a date for them that works out very well except when he begins to kiss her it starts to rain. The next time that she sees Dr. Steve is when surprise surprise she meets the groom of the current wedding she is planning. Mary vows to remain distant and to plan the best wedding for Fran and Steve, but the heart wants what the heart wants. This is a very entertaining and heartfelt movie. Jennifer Lopez is wonderful and Matthew McConaughey is sexy and charming. What great chemistry they have on screen!
