    Does anyone know about how to convert DVD movies so they can sync on to an iphone? What is the best one to use, and preferably free. I have already used "Leawo" and it doesnt really work that well. The dvds were synced to my iphone but the picture was very bad quality and for some reason every one i converted had subtitles.

    HELP PLEASE???

    Hi Snow_Mani and doug3465,
    If you want to have it in good enough resolution for both iPhone and AppleTV/Desktop viewing, have a look at the suggestions made by anoter member by Max_RimStain at http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=3010
    I've been using those and it works a treat.

    Yes it does take AGES but it's CPU intensive so you wait even longer on old machines like my G4. Also eats up HDD space: average 1GB per movie. If you don't mind lower quality you can reconfigure the settings to max filesize or whatever.

    Also, if you are at all interested in buying the next gen iPhone/iPod Touch, then you may want to wait before devoting weeks coverting into H.264: it's rumoured that it could support HD 720p.

    I have a PC and couldn't ever get handbrake to work correctly. I use DVD Decrypter to rip it and Videora to convert it and have had no problems.

    So that is an option for you as well.
