Instant Handbrake – A quick and easy DVD to Mac/iPod conversion utility
Handbrake is a no frills easy to use open source video conversion utility, which used to be known as Instant HandBrake. HandBrake makes taking any DVD you own and placing it on your Mac/iPod/iPhone/iPad easier and more instant than ever before. And of course, I should mention that Handbrake can also convert your DVD Videos to a format Sony’s PSP can understand. When converting DVD Videos to your iPod, you can choose from the standard MPEG-4 format (perfect for pocket viewing), or if you plan on hooking your iPod up to a television, H.264 encoded video is also supported.
1. Open HandBrake
2. Choose your DVD drive, or Video_TS Folder
3. Pick iPod or PSP output.
4. Click convert.
Depending on the speed of your computer’s processor, you will wait from as little as 45 minutes to well over 2 hours. The wait is well worth it, as you will receive a video file which you can simply drag onto your iTunes icon, ready for your next sync.
