the new handbrake ROCKS

do you own DVDs that you would like to copy for use on a iPhone/iPod touch or an AppleTV?

personally i am in this situation and would like to have a copy of some movies so i can leave one in the car and one in the house (for the inevitable children paws all over the shiny side of the dvd – usually after eating something sticky).

handbrake is a wonderful mac/windows application that will automatically decode and save the files from a dvd for backup or transfer to a portable device.

the latest version works reliably and quickly under leopard (0.9.2) and produces some wonderful video quality. like i said i have taken some dvds, converted them to iphone format and watched them on my commute to/from nyc. wonderful!

if you are looking for something that allows you to take content you have purchased and watch it in a way you want to watch it, this is a great option.
