Another one you may hear about, but which I don't trust myself with conversions to DVD media, is RipBot264. I do things "by hand" myself...
Sorry if I sent you on a wild-goose chase w/ClownBD...
Thanks for the correction. Actually, I haven't had the time to do any 'work' or research beyond bookmarking, perusing and asking annoying questions
. BDRebuilder is already on my radar. As soon as I have time, I'll put it toward researching the process. But, additional questions that occur:
My impression is that BDRebuilder will need 'helper' software, such as is listed in the guide I linked to earlier (milOtis), which includes, amongst others, AVCHD, ffdshow, etc.
From your reaction to the guide, your opinion of it seemed to be 'overkill'. Are the softwares listed [i]not[i] required? Also, I see no reference to the h264 encoder in any of them, so I assume that it's part of one of them, such as BDRebuilder. Is this a correct assumption?
Thanks again for your input,
