Tech Turtle Tip: DVD to Video iPod

February 28, 2007

Are you bored staring at strangers during your commute to work? Need something to do while waiting for an oil change for the Prius ? Well, then don’t let your Video iPod go to waste. You can watch the Star Wars or the Devil Wears Prada DVD on your iPod. For PC users, go to videora.com, or iSquint. For Mac users, use Handbrake. Both freewares extract the MPEG2 video from DVDs, and convert it to MPEG4 which is the format playable on the 5th generation iPod. Note: It’s is not legal to make DVD copies to sell them on the sidewalks of New York City… or anywhere else.

Update: Handbrake is now MediaFork. Different name, but still the same awesome-ness. You can download it from MacUpdate.
