    Question Putting DVD's on carputer?!?!

    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

    Ditto.

    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?

    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.
    Thanks
