Advertisements Hi, just lost my 1TB barracuda. Warranty replaced it, but not the contents . So, I'm starting over ripping my DVD library for streaming to my Tivo HD w/ pytivo & streambaby. Previously I used "old school" dvd decryptor and AutoGK to xvid. This was fine as I did a few at a time, but I'd like to streamline the process. Rip/decode/transcode all at once to MKV, MP4 or... I don't need subtitles, alternate audio. As I understand it, MKV isn't great for compression, but MakeMKV (free) seems like a good choice for DVD->MKV. Handbrake will decrypt and transcode (mp4/xvid) at once according to this guide. But wanted confirmation. DVDFab free seems to let me decode, but not transcode. AnyDVD is $$, but is that really the best choice? I'm willing to drop a few $$ since I'm hoping it will save me days of 2 pass decoding/transcoding. I appreciate the help.
