Use DVDShrink or DVDDecryptor and set output to NOT split into 1 GB chunks. This will generate 1 large .VOB file.

Yes, but you could delete the .IFO and .BUP files and play the .VOB directly through MPC-HC - however, you will lose chapter skip ability this way. It's like playing a large .MPG file.

if you have access to a Mac, the new version of Handbrake does a sweet job of ripping straight to x264, I just did Iron Man and I cant see the difference between the original DVD and the 1.4 GB file.

There is a windows version IMO.

Nero Recode will also convert to a single h264 file, but you need to rip the DVD separately first.

As for just sequencing the individual .VOBs to one file. I too use Shrink for that. Just delete the small files that get generated with the large .VOB and you are ready to go.

FWIW, if some players won't recognize the .VOB file (but do play DVDs), renaming it to .MPG will usually solve that issue.

AnyDVD, Virtual CloneDrive, PowerDVD. Use AnyDVD to rip them as iso files. It maintains all the original quality and the file takes up about the same amount of space as the original DVD. Install Virtual CloneDrive, available from the Slysoft site, and PowerDVD. Click the iso file and it will play in PowerDVD. All menus and chapters are maintained.

Hi, do you wanna make a single file without re-encoding; here is the way i follow:

1)Wait AnyDVD to scan your DVD; it takes 2 seconds and leave it run on the behind.

2)Extract video and audio with eac3to like this: (E is DVD-rom here)

Code:
 E:\\VIDEO_TS> C:\\eac3to\\eac3to VTS_04_1.vob+VTS_04_2.vob+VTS_04_3.vob+VTS_04_4.vob+VTS_04_5.vob+VTS_04_6.vob 
2: C:\\KB_2\\video.m2v 5: C:\\KB_2\\audio.ac3

VOB, 1 video track, 3 audio tracks, 2 subtitle tracks, 2:11:17
1: Joined VOB file
2: MPEG2, 576p25 (16:9)
3: AC3, 5.1 channels, 448kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
4: AC3, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
5: AC3, 5.1 channels, 448kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
6: Subtitle
7: Subtitle
[v02] Extracting video track number 2...
[a05] Extracting audio track number 5...
[a05] Removing AC3 dialog normalization...
[v02] Creating file "C:\\KB_2\\video.m2v"...
[a05] Creating file "C:\\KB_2\\audio.ac3"...
Video track 2 contains 196985 frames.
eac3to processing took 10 minutes, 39 seconds.
Done.
3)You can extract subtitle as srt with DVDSubEdit; select all needed VOBs; it will extract all subtitles. Select one of them which you want to convert to srt and run "OCR all" and "save as srt"

4)Open video, audio and subtitle with MKVMergeGui and remux into an mkv.

5)-optional step-Following this way you can merge two DVDs into a single mkv:
Follow the steps 1 to 4 for every individual DVD and merge them into a single mkv; load dvd1.mkv and append dvd2.mkv on MKVMergeGui.
I merged my KillBill1 and KillBill2 with this way.
