    hello people!

    i want to convert a DVD to a DIVX file for great cinema experience on my expensive powerbook. i looked around here and anywhere like a dumbhead, but i didnt find any convertor that is doing just that, and that fast and without many complicated ways. is there anything you people can recommend ?

    also i got a recorded divx from tv and want to burn that one on dvd, how i can convert that easily to .vob ? (and then : how to burn the .vob ? )


    much thanks in advance and sorry for poor english..


    greetings

    Well buckdad I know that Handbrake will convert a dvd to mpeg format. If that helps you any. And about taking an mpeg file or such and converting it to vob files I used a DVD authoring tool called Sizzle. I am still in the early stages of seeing if Sizzle will work 100% with the right type of dvd-r's. As far as burning those vob files to a dvd-r I just use Toast Titanium. First you should create a parent folder with the name or appropriate title and the take the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders that Sizzle creates for you and move them into the parent folder. Move that folder over to the DVD-UDF portion in Toast and start burning. If you have any other quesions holla back.
