I typically copy a dvd to iso then burn the iso to disc and have software that works quite well for that (anydvd, clonedvd2, nero 10.5), but occasionally have a need to rip to avi for internet purposes. I've tried a number of apps but all seem to produce substandard quality results including poor video quality and more importantly audio and video getting out of sync. So I have a 2 part question: 1) What are individual opinions on the best dvd to avi software that has decent processing time, quality video output and is great at keeping audio & video synced? I saw a reference in a recent post to autoGK. Is this the best? 2) If you have an avi that is out of sync, is there a utility that can easily sync the streams? P.S. I saw a sticky about asking about DVD-Rs and that people endanger their accounts by posting about them. Just curious what that was about. Anyone?
