Auto Gordian Knot is pretty easy to use with very good results. I've used it several times before I had a decent burner and connection and can safely say it's very much worth using.

rip the VOBs with whatever, demux the audio and video with dgindex, write avisynth script to denoise/resize/etc, load script in virtualdub, encode the with xvid (video > compression)...use full processing, wait, open the encoded video with virtualdubmod, add the ac3 audio from earlier via the stream list, sync audio with video and save it...done :rolleyes:

you'll need to set your xvid settings for compatibility before encoding (no qpel, nvop, etc.). but there's plenty of guides on the net for that (doom9, videohelp, etc.)...

edit: almost forgot, after it's fully fnished, you need to split the file to fit on however many CDs. but you can use 100 different apps for that (emule > video splitter)...

also, with ac3 audio i'd only try to put ~60-75mins, tops, per CD. so you'll wanna do 2-3 CD rips, depending on movie length

rofl wow that seems complicated, i just tried auto gordian knot and it does everything by itself... prolly not a good thing but ok for a noob like me. also i didnt kno which IFO file toselect so i accidentally selected the trailer of the movie instead of the actual movie lol... is there a way to find out which IFO is the movie? movie i tried rippin was harold and kumar go to white castle, there were like 7 IFOs....

just open the dvd with windows where you can see the files listed, open the video_ts folder and look which IFO has the most VOB files associated with it...that would be it :rolleyes:

I'm glad that I am not the only one that thinks that is too complicated for some of us simple people. It makes me feel not quite so stupid.

I need an emoticon with overalls :rolleyes:

if you want my opinion, fairuse wizard is the best and quickest way of ripping dvds into xvid, divx, or h264 format. oh also you can even rip dvds into ipod format too in case you have a ipod video.

well i dont really consider myself "stupid" just cuz i dont kno how to do sumthin, i think of it more as a higher level skill for which i dont have enuff skill points lol. searchin thru google and seeking help in forums gives me the necessary skill points to master the technique :rolleyes: (i was thinkin about Lineage 2 and how fun it is while writing this xD)
