DVD - Still Rippin'

April 21, 2011

I’ve been trying to find the easiest solution for ripping DVDs to a format stream-able to my Droid X but currently stuck using a three step process. First I have to rip the DVDs in Windows on my main computer using 1Click DVD Copy. This outputs a Video_TS folder structure. I then copy the Video_TS folder and its parent folder onto my external hard-drive attached to my server. There I begin the encoding process with Handbrake which encodes it into a mp4 file ~2.5gb big. After this I use Super to encode it again into a smaller, stream-able mp4 file that looks good and can stream to my phone over DLNA.
