handbrake Handbrake.

Handbrake. Nice name. Anyway it’s a free DVD to MPEG4 ripper for the Apple Mac. Let’s you create movies for the iPod methinks.

 HandBrake is a GPL’d multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 ripper/converter. HandBrake was originally available on the BeOS, but now has been ported over to MacOS X and to GNU/Linux. A Windows port is being worked on.

    Wow, nice to see a project on which the Windows platform is actually the last one to receive a port.

    I love handbrake! I got a video iPod and now I use it all the time. Search around google for directions on how to use it though, the default settings are WAY too high for the ipod.
