    i was using handbrake before and it worked wonders. i just uninstalled VLC so i could play everything with quicktime X however, movies ripped using handbrake can't be played with that player. i read something that it encodes audio in ac3 format or something. ack.

    point is, what's a good video converter/dvd ripper which creates files that can be played with quicktime x with perian? :)


    thanks

    When using Handbrake, under the audio encoding options, why not just make the audio AAC instead of AC3? Or are you just using the default presets that are available?

    Personally, I use MacTheRipper to rip the DVD to my MacBook first and then use Handbrake to encode.

    Hi,

    If you want blu ray ripping, you can use imgburn to create an iso of the blu ray disc, mount the iso using phantom cd then rip the mounted image using anydvd. then use toast to transcode the .m2ts to any format you want. btw, imgburn, phantom cd and anydvd are windows based app.
