    I plan to copy my DVD Collection :) on a HDD.

    - What is the easiest and fastest way 2 realise my plan? (I also want to be able to stream on my computer of course)
    - Is they a software that directly rips to avi or divx or mpeg or bin or whatever ?

    I don't know a good method. What I usually do (also for size purposes) is: extract the VOBs form the DVD, convert the VOB set into VCD mpeg-1, compress the resulting mpeg-1 into AVI using the profile (for DivX: Portable Profile) according to the VCD resolution they have.
    All ripping software I know only extract the VOBs, don't compress them. More, if they compressed them they would make a too big AVI (e.g. with DVD2AVI, which needs a VOB set and does not make include the sound stream into the AVI)
    Probably there are better solutions...

    Aldaco,
    Your reply to geniusch is... bizarre (to be polite).
    You don't know a good method.
    Why then do you describe to us a poor one?
    Converting a DVD to MPEG1, and then converting that MPEG1 to AVI, is a really bad way to backup a DVD to HD ;^(
    Uhh, yeah; this is the MPEG4 AVI encoding forum - ripping with DVDDecrypter is only the first step! Then we encode the VOB files with XviD (or DivX), hopefully not using DVD2AVI.
    YES there are better solutions - like GordianKnot
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_encoders/gordian_knot.cfm
    right here on AfterDawn, forget videohelp.com
    The GKnot suite + XviD codec will give maximum quality results, in a semi-automatic package offering hands-on control of the process.
    If you geniusch, do not wish to learn about these things (are not technically inclined) and want a real simple 'automatic' program that pre-supposes your answers to all questions, there is Automatic Gordian Knot known as AutoGK

    Now I apologize if I seem snippy - but I have answered this simple query maybe 800 times or so, although the n00bies keep on asking it...
    Gordian Knot!
    GORDIAN KNOT!
    Gordian Knot is the answer :^)
    Regards
