Handbrake.fr

handbrake-logoWhen the iPhone and video iPods came out a friend of mine was asking me about how to copy movies so they work on them.  My initial response was to buy the movies from iTunes.  I got the same look when I told someone I bought a Windows 95 license.  After doing some research, I found a couple of burners out there but none of them were very Mac OS X friendly.

Then I found HandBrake: http://handbrake.fr/.

This application is really easy to use.  You pop in your DVD, click the settings you want to burn for (Apple TV, iPhone, iPod, PSP, etc…) and click start.  In a few minutes or so you’ll have a video ready for any of your portable devices.  So now what?  The kids can watch their movies without draining my battery life on my laptop (this is a huge plus).

The quality is good.  I’ve only been burning movies for the iPhone.  When I play them on the iPhone it works out great.  When I play it through iTunes, the sound quality is a little on the low end but again, I burned it specifically for the iPhone.  I’m sure if I adjust the settings I can get better sound out of it.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
