I stumbled upon 123MoviesIPOD at my local Staples store a while back. Recently testing the assorted movie convertors I've collected it offered to upgrade itself. Version 188.8.131.52 is far better than the original, and it will turn a DVD or file or You-Tube video into MP4, AVI, and WMVs at many different resolutions. I remember it being $30ish, and the update was free. One step essentially. It finds the DVD in your drive, You can set the destination, select the devices, and configure specific output resolution.
If you are tired of tying up your PC making movies for your ipod, Pinnacle is winning tech awards for it's Pinnacle Video Transfer device. I bought one and have reviewed it with a few photos on my Blog. You can plug anything with composite or Svideo video outputs directly into it, and a USB thumb drive or hard drive into the other end. Play the movie and press RECORD on the Pinnacle. Come back when the movie is done and you'll have a 480x320 MP4 movie for that will play perfectly on your Ipod Touch or iPhone. You have a few other choices as well. I've tried it with old VHS movies, DVDs, output from my SAT box and directly from my 8mm video camera. As low as $80 if you shop around. I've stopped using my PC.
Free version of HD DVDFab Decryptor and Handbrake. I actually use DVD shrink after DVDFab so I just get the movie (and take out long credits-save space). This works great for my 3rd gen Ipod Nano. Handbrake has presets for ipods. I just make sure it's set for .mp4
Hi all! I would like you try VidCrop Pro! I like it! A very usefull and simple in use)) I know that it seems like an advertise, but i don't want to enforce) I have tried it and liked and just wanna to share
Anyone know the relationship between DVDfab and CloneDVD(or Fengtao vs. Slysoft)? I've heard different things, that Fengtao's DVDfab is a chinese ripoff of the British slysoft's software, but I've also heard that they're both a variation of an open source program.
I hear they both work well, but noticed more people were using DVDfab and wanted to know if anyone had seen this before and if there were benefits of one program over the other.
Another vote for handbrake. If you are using a new iPhone or iPod, I set up a profile to encode to 960x640, h264, rips look amazing on the retina display encoded this way. Also grabbed the trial ver of DVDFab to rip a new blueray that anydvd HD would not, but have used DVD Decrypter successfully for years.
