HELP! Handbrake did an update and all the settings described in this article that worked PERFECTLY with my 360 before have disappeared!

 We need an updated article!



There are huge amount of dvd ripper, Mac DVD Ripper on the market. Before you choose one, you ought to consider the overall
quality of the product and choose the best one for you.



One time, I did a Digital Copy of Rambo to my ipod, then it took probably about 5-10 minutes. It was on a 1.6 Celeron D? with 2 GB of DDR2 RAM! the movie was about 1.5 GB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



As for me, I'd like to recommend this DVD Ripper to rip DVD to MP4 video for iPod and PSP, it works pretty well for me.



I use DVDFAB, bought it have not looked back.  Rip anything, using AMD Athlon Dual X2 6400, with XP Pro 2Gigs Ram and an Nvidia 8800GT card.  Full movie Ripped to Ipod format, which is all I do, takes about 30 minutes.  Plays great on my Ipod Touch, no issues.  Have not done anything else with it.  But works great.  Multiply formats and DVD to DVD, one stop shop.



I'm trying to follow the March 2009 article, and things seem to go right until I start ripping the DVD.  I've had 2 different outcomes, so far:

1) Left overnight and I come back to find the computer has been reset.  At first I didn't suspect anything, but then it did it while I was sitting there watching it.

2) Handbrake seems to have completed the rip, but the file *.m4v won't play anywhere.

I am trying to rip a DVD so I can watch on my 2nd Gen iPOD Nano, if that makes any difference.  I can watch the movie fine on the computer, so I don't think there is a hardware problem anywhere.

Any advice would be helpful.




I've followed the article's instructions to the letter and I cannot get this to work.  Sadly, I'm doing this on a dual core Athlon, so each try takes 3-4 hours to find out that it didn't work - again.  It makes the mp4 file correctly (I think), and I can even play the file with Quicktime, but the TwonkyMedia Manager will not play the file.  It recognizes it, and it shows up in the list, but when I click play it just sits there, well, sometimes it will randomly crash, but it usually just sits there.  I threw in some order crappy avi files that I ripped awhile back and of course it recognizes and plays those ones fine.  Any ideas on what I'm missing?  I've tried uninstalling and re-installing everything twice already.  Handbrake is making the file, and it plays in Quicktime so it obviously works, which leads me to believe that the problem is with TwonkyMedia Manager, and there isn't much help out there for this program.  Has anyone else had a similar problem and fixed it?  I'm using Vista (32-bit) and DVD43.  My final mp4 files are in the 2GB size range.



"We typically recommend a modified PS3 preset." Nowhere in the article does it describe what of the preset is modified. Could you expand?



After many years of trying all dvd rippers the only one for me is DVDFAB. Very cheap and has worked everytime. I use DVD-R DL. Using double layer DVD's made all the difference in the world if you want a high quality backup everytime.



I've tried three or four software programs recommended by Max PC and friends, and the best solution (thanks to my friend Chris!) is as follows:  PURCHASE your DVD or HDDVDs. Go to SlySofts's web site. PURCHASE and install AnyDVD to "normalize" your disk and ready it for copying. PURCHASE and install SlySoft's CloneDVDmobile to convert to just about every mobile device on the market (I use iPhone 16 GB). For about $100.00 USD you get the easiest, and best supported software available, with no cryptic user interface and no BS!

I have a Quad 9450 @ 2.7 GHz, and about 40 minutes later you have a perfect, 700 to 800 MB, high quality MP4 file that iTunes recognizes and syncs. So long boring plane trips and thanks SlySoft for making this task a no brainer! I'm in the process of converting my library, and with a Quad 4 SlySofts software works quietly in the background while I play DOD online.



Or you could use DVDfab HD Decrypter for free and use handbrake along side like I do. It works fine for me to encode to most of my consoles and portable devices......



DVD43 doesn't work on 64 bit Vista. Sad but true. Are there any decent freeware tools out there that do?



I've a few choice words to add about some of these Disney DVDs.  I have 2 girls and they aren't gentle with anything.  Naturally, its a lot cheaper to copy all of their discs to the cheap, reburnable  alternative.  Every DVD they have I've had no problem ripping to an iso and burning back to a blank...several times.  Forget HD and Blu-ray for now.  I only have a regular old DVD burner.  Which brings me to my point.  Disney DVDs are damn near impossible to rip.  From time to time I get lucky but lately no dice.  Maybe its my house but neither the Laptop nor the Desktop PC can rip these.  On a good day, VLC or Power DVD will play them fine but I've not had any luck ripping.  Dvd43 hasn't been helpful although I use it quite frequently with other DVDs.  I do revert to DVD Decrypter in times of need and it's pretty good with Sony films, but not Disney.  Will, since you're the resident expert, is there a confirmed solution that has consistently worked for you guys?  The obvious answer is probably AnyDVD, of which my wife won't let me spend the $80 USD so I'm lookin for another solution.

P.S. I'd love to hear Gordon's rant about this topic...




I believe AnyDVD is trialware. So all you have to do aStalwartClone, is make your backups in the allotted time. And if you like it, buy it.



I use AnyDVD by SlySoft to rip DVD's and the older DVDShrink to make em fit on single layer DVDR's. If the latest released DVD has an encryption that AnyDVD cant handle, they'll update it. DVDShrink still works for most older DVD's for ripping btw.


gladitor04 is the best



Anyone using dvd decrypter & dvd shrink any more?  They work for me.




What program are you using to rip the DVD's? I must have missed it or it wasnt mentioned.



These are great instructions, but I have 1 question.  Why did they suggest the Apple Universal preset for the Iphone instead of the Iphone preset?  Is one actually better than the other?  Has anyone tried both and can give a recommedation?



im pretty sure if you are reading this website, you know what greedo and jabba are saying...

Cheers to that!!



I read a few comments on the blu-ray burning, so there isn't a free program to allow us to back up our BD discs?  I followed the directions for Handbrake and love it, but I'd like to back up my collection of BD discs, my niece has that Disney Collection on BD and is already taking crayons to them :(

 I've read another review on Nero Ultra 8, but it's $100, would be $50 if I could find my old box of 7 Ultra, lost in a move.  Any free products or can Handbrake do it as well?



 I've been having fun with media coder for converting music from itunes (which I can't wait to use up my gift card and cancel, but that's another article). Anyone do some quality and versatility comparisions with it? It seems to have a TON of codecs, including some audio options super didn't have.


P.S. I figured out how to make super "join" VOB files and rip directly from DVD. Both it and DVDx have sync issues for me though over an hour show, regardless of codec. I'll try handbrake again. Nero is great, unfortunately I have 6 ultra, which only encodes video to nero's proprietary h264. It's beautiful, but I can't play it anywhere.


"There's no time like the future."



I am using vista and have tried about 7 diferent encoding options but
every time i get an error message that the selected player (ether
quicktime/itunes or WMP) does not support the file because it ether
"does not support the codec" (wmp) or "does not understand the file"
(quicktime) (same problem, diffent settings, different players) is
anyone else having this problem?

DVD43 doesn't work on Vista 64bit.  Any idea of another free program that will decrypt on the fly?



Wouldnt bababoom take care of that blu-ray to PSP for you?

By the way, I believe that MaximumPC is a strong believer of open source apps like Handbrake instead of 30 bucks for bababoom.

As for my previous post regarding DVR-MS and closed captioning. I am having some troubles with using open source apps such as cc extractor because it returned NO CAPTIONS while i know that it has captions on the DVR-MS but it worked on DVD.

I found this app, VideoReDo for 80 dollars which works well but you need to know how to enable this like on this forum  it worked without a hitchand I am happy to back up DVR-MS format to DVDs for future enjoyment.

I am going to try to use cc extractor to rip CC from DVDs then send the DVD through Handbrake to MP4, then use quicktime pro to blend CC back into MP4 and you can play the video with CC option ON/OFF on IPOD, iPhone, quicktime, etc. Which is fablous in my option.

Perhaps MaximumPC have something easier and quicker?





I have a gtx 280 that it should work with.

How would I downconvert a blu-ray movie to play on my PSP?






Using AnyDVD to ready the disk for copying, I tried it extensively over a period of one month compared directly to Slysofts CloneDVDmobile. The files were of lower quality (even on the High setting) and about 300 to 400 MB larger. I had to stay with SlySofts's solution even though I REALLY wanted to like BadaBoom! I think the Cuda technology offered by NVidia is a great idea and applaud the folks at BadaBoom for their efforts. Hope this helps.
