    ive got about 300 movies to "backup" and im currently using handbrake in the 'quicktime' setting to maintain some quality... my problem is that its taking 4 hours per movie to copy them... what setting can i use to maintain a decent quality and rip time? it needs to be ipod/appletv compatible

    Don't use H.264, it's going to at least double your encoding time. I use MPEG4 with a bitrate of 1500 and the video looks DVD quality at whateverx480 and the encoding time is only 45min for a 2hr movie.

    So leaving the resolution at the default (anything over 640x480 won't work on an iPod so you know) will yield you good results and good speeds.
