    Which is better-- iSquint or Handbrake? Am I correct in assuming both programs do the same thing or am I missing something?

    Is there a way to have iTunes show which tracks are missing album art? Or is there an Automator action or program that'll show?

    iSquint/VisualHub is for encoding/reencoding files, like WMV -> MP4
    handbrake is for ripping DVD's to a video file like MP4 or AVI

    you can also rip/convert dvd's with iSquint by using MactheRipper

    I love VisualHub for almost everything as long as the content is ripped to a drive first. Ripping I use MTR first. HandBrake is good but I still like VisualHub for making iPhone videos best.

    Handbrake is easier since it's one step.
    Visualhub/iSquint + MacTheRipper is more powerful, but also more complicated

    How's the speed? Both encode around the same speed?

    So VisualHub is worth buying or searching for? Or just stick with iSquint?
