Converting a VIDEO_TS to an iPod format
A few posts ago, the tip explained how to rip a DVD as a VIDEO_TS on your hard drive. I had mentionned that you could then put it onto your iPod. Well there was still a missing piece to the puzzle, the software that can convert the VIDEO_TS to a file readable by a 5th generation iPod. A good freeware I found for that is Instant Handbrake. It is still in Beta but it works remarkably well and it is very easy to use. You can simply install the software, choose the VIDEO_TS folder, select which format (5G iPod or PSP), select the chapters, select the language and click convert. You can download Instant Handbrake here on the developer's site.
