    What is a good tool for DVD ripping? I have one that works well, but it rips the movie by chapter, so I have a bunch of little movie files instead of one big one. Thanks

    Your on the wrong forum for Ripping and coding dvds. You find all you need to know on http://www.afterdawn.com/. Read the guides as ripping and converting DVD's is a complicated process.

    I hate afterdawn. I ask here because there is knowledgeable people on here who can send me in the right direction. Thats why I posted in the General section, not the Wii - Hacking section.

    I think I pretty much covered the basics here:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=35549
    ripit4me (the frontend I suggest got taken out but doom9 forums should turn it up or I will post it).

    If you need help with something more in depth (DVD authoring/shrinking/tweaking, angles, subs, audio, codecs of choice and options.....) say so.

    I'll post my question here too. DOn't want to make a new topic:

    Dr. Divx doesn't work on Vista. I googled my eyes out and found nothing similar for vista. Please tell me if you know a divx encoder for vista [​IMG]

    Do you want divx as in the codec or divx for the "container"?

    If it is the former I personally like Xvid, there are loads of command line encoders and loads of frontends too (I have not used Dr Divx since its about 2 years before its previous incarnation died but I understand it is a somewhat general purpose app).

    If it is the latter can I advise against the divx container, sure it plays OK with the conventional AVI splitters but for the features it confers I strongly suggest moving to MKV.

    Try virtual dub to begin with and then consider moving to a frontend if you find it has too many features:
    http://www.virtualdub.org/index.html
    It may take a bit of tweaking to get along with vista (it sometimes does not play well with aero) but it is a solid app.

    I am not sure about the status of frontends on vista but a quick trawl of the doom9 forums should turn up something:

    If you're looking to rip whole DVD's and keep the menu/extras intact then DVDShrink is a good choice as well. It can be a little hard to find now due to the DMCA but it's out there,
