I talked a friend to converting his DVD's as well.
We both have 3 - 1 ITB WD drives.
We do back ups every couple of months as new stuff is added so I never have to worry.

FWIW I am not getting any Audio Drops in Visual Hub. So it's software not hardware. Some work in 0.71 but most still fail

I would like to see the Video AND audio on ONE page. The Drawer for the Presets is cool. Also the Presest don't remember things like Anamorphic On/Off.

I just put in an 80GB drive it was easy took only a few minutes. Getting a hack so NAS device to work may take a bit more work. As you need iTunes running to get streaming video and music. You could get an adapter to go to an external 750 GB, that would look ugly but should be very easy with a quick...

MAke sure you are using H.264 the codec is a lot better but slower to encode. Also it the DVD's are ripped to hard drive with something like Mac-the-ripper your encoding speed goes faster as well.

Re: Can Chapters Be Added to M4V Files?

I noticed that movies purchased from iTunes have Chapters so you can select a spot to go to during the playing of the movie without having to hold down the fast-forward button and wait forever. Is there a way to add this chapter information to an M4V file created by HandBrake either automatically o...

Mediafork is faster than VH on my G4.
VH upconverts the size MF uses the native DVD resolution. ATV will upscale for you much better and save encoding time and less drive space too.

There were a lot of extra black bars in several movies I did. I did like the like drag and drop on the batchlist. But I still think mediafork is better for DVD r...

It has to work with iLife apps, Apple would not shoot themselves in the foot.
Like Sony did with the PSP for example.
If Sony PSP played any mini DVD-R they would have sold millions more of them.
