Handbrake is a free, download-able video encoder that may be used for Windows, Mac OS and Linux computers. It is very easy to use and also does not occupy much space on your system. As soon as you download and start HandBrake, you will be looking at the familiar Open dialog that you would see on a Mac OS X. To use for DVD conversion, just select the DVD name. However, to convert a file that has already been ripped on the hard drive, just select the Video_TS folder on your screen.
