If any one has some realy good info on a great program that lets you rip DVD movies onto your computer/carputer would help allot. Looking to convert into a complete movie but a small file size. (vob files) to DIVX/XVID. Basicly it needs to be very simple to convert it, kinda like converting WAV to MP3's. The easier the better
this program is easy and direct? also it will convert it down in size?
cool thank you very much!!
I use DVD Decryptor/AutoGK with success.
Spent so far: $1,755

And thanks for not doing a search first because in the year and a half that I've been a member, I'm sure I've never seen this question asked before. It's always refreshing to see a newbie ask an intelligent and insightfull question.
I'm curious, what are your thoughts on your car-puter? Do you think you should go with a Lillput or a Xenarc? Inverter or DC-DC? Is there any chance you have a laptop screen that you could try and use?
I can smell the sarcasm from here!
1.6GHz HP e-PC, 768MB RAM, 120GB WD HDD, Slim DVD-ROM, Onboard sound & video, 7" Lilliput, USB GPS Mouse, Audiovox FM Modulator, Vector 400 Watt Power Inverter, Windows XP Pro SP2, iGuidance 2, 15" Samsung LCD for the rear *Carputer not installed*
But while we're on the subject, how big of a file are we going for here? I'm not really too experienced in digital video compression, and I know that all movies are different lengths, and there's tons of options. But for a regular feature movie, to make a file that will look good on an 800x600 display, what's a general size we can get down to? Just a general idea....1 gig? 100 gig? enough to completely obliterate most harddrives? Come to think of it, a regular DVD quality movie......as it comes on the dvd....how big of a file is that? A regular DVD holds 4.37gigs, if I'm correct <i rarely am>, but most movies come packaged with extra features, and I know they dont always have to use the whole dvd......so how big is the actual movie file on a standard film? Look at me, so full of questions.....I guess you can all start with the sarcastic remarks and flaming now.
