    Do we have any movie rippers here? I've been ripping my DVD collection and encoding them twice. In an iPod/iPhone compatible format (iPod High Res in Handbrake) and in Apple TV format so I have a high quality version when I want to watch it on TV.

    I'm interested in hearing how other do their encoding. I noticed the new Handbrake has some new encoding presets and I'm wondering if I should just stick with the way I've been doing it or if there's some better way that I'm missing.

    I started ripping all of my movies and purchased another HD to put them all on so I can watch them on my computer when I want to (or put them on my laptop for trips). I just do .mp4, FFMPEG, 1000mb file, no anamorphic, no 2-pass encoding and let her go. i tried the presets and while im sure they're great for the more specific ones (iPod/iPhone), they'll probably work just fine on the appleTV in the other formats.

    I have an OCD when it comes to quality and options. So I like doing two encodes-- one for use on the iPod/iPhone and it can still be plugged into a TV and look good. Then one AppleTV, high quality version for high quality play on the TV. I know it's overkill, but whatever. :dunno:

    that's ok, if you have the room, who cares?

    I just get bored waiting for the encodes to finish or am on a timeline to get it done (lol blockbuster returns ;))
