I'm looking to copy some DVDs to my computer/phone. Does anyone know of quality freeware that will export them into MPEG4 format? Output needs to be of good quality too. Thanks in advance.

Google is great for finding trial versions. Unfortunately, I want to watch MORE than 5 minutes of a movie. Spent all yesterday installing and un-installing trial versions.

+1 to handbrake. If you have the money +10 to dvdfab. Dvdfab makes it super easy. Handbrake requires more diligence.

i've heard about handbreak but never used it. Does it also bypass the security on DVDs? I use commercial apps from Slysoft... CloneDVDMobile and AnyDVD.

Yes it does, as long as you download VLC media player with it. Handbrake can integrate with VLC to read secure disks. This will allow you to convert any secure disks to MP4

Not nearly as good as Handbrake. Handbrake set the standard for transcoding.

i'll have to give handbrake a try, see how it stacks up compared to my commercial app.

know of a tool that allows you define a start point and end point and it will rip it from the DVD in one step, or without having to rip the entire disc first?

for example, i have a dvd movie. and i want the footage starting from the 5 minute in, until like 9 minute.

so i end up with a 4 minute clip, with proper audio and video?

I don't know of anything that will let you set specific start/stop points, but Handbrake will let you rip a specific chapter of a DVD to a video format that you can easily trim with Quicktime or some other video editor.
