    Hi guys. Out of curiosity, and with so many to choose from, could anyone give me a kick towards a decent piece of software to convert DVD (or even other) format to MPEG4(AVI)? I used to have a player and never used it as was lazy!

    Main requirements would be (1) Speed followed by (2) ease of use: just does what it says on the tin.

    If it's free it's a bonus, but not essential

    I'll second that, FairUse is excellent, free too for encodes up to 700mb, I think, apart from that all the features are there. I found it so useful I paid the $20 for the full version.

    Pocket DVD Studio gets my vote, very easy to use.

    I use PocketDivXEncoder which is free and gives good conversion.

    I think Pocket divxencoder doesn't handle audio sync very well
    Fair Use as refered to earlier actually gives the best results for me.

    I used pocketdivx encoder & upgraded to LATHE the full version of pocket, it is only $5.75. It also seems to be a lot faster than all the others I have tried.

    Thanks to Gooner I've been using Fair Use Wizard 2.5 since I got my AV500 and its very easy to use.

    It also says it doesn't rip copy protected DVD's but I can assure you it does and the 700mb limit on the free version is excellent.
