    Best format for Movies?

    I have a bunch of DVD's and want to put them on my car's HDD for viewing while on vacation, for my gf....

    What are the best / easiest ways to transfer movies onto the HDD?

    First of all you will need to get:
    XviD Codec
    DVDx
    Then follow this fairly simple guide:
    Afonic XviD DVD Rip guide

    This is from the peerweb.org forums. I've done it and it works perfectly -- it just takes a while.

    I'd say get a subscription to newgroups and newzbin...it'll be faster to download than convert DVDs to Xvid/Divx... I can download 15 movies in the time it takes me to convert a DVD to Xvid...of course, I'm not suggesting piracy, just download those movies you own of course ;-)

    Thats the hard way. Just get the Xvid Codec and Apollo DVD Backup. Done.

    I would have to add another vote to xvid. It is the best!

    I use DVD Decrypter to rip from DVD in about 12-15 minutes and then use AutoGK to convert to xvid in about an hour and a half.

    A full length movie around 700Mb sometimes even smaller. And full quality too, not crappy pixelated stuff.
