    Launch Handbrake, select the DVD you want to rip by clicking Source.
    After importing DVD, you will see the figure below.

    Setting Introduction

    1. Source settings
    (1). Title: Handbrake will detect all the titles on the DVD and choose the longest title automatically.
    (2). Chapters: By setting chapters’ number, you can rip a specific clip. However, this is not very user friendly, since you will have to remember what is on each chapter. If you could preview each chapter, things would be a lot easier.

    2. Destination setting: Choose the folder to save ripped movies.

    3. Output Settings: select the format and codec you need.
    (1). Video Settings

    Framerate(FPS): Select a frame rate that you prefer.

    Quality:
    There are three options available:
    1. Specify an output size and the quality will depend on the specified output size.
    2. Select a birate. The higher bitrate you choose, the bigger size the output file will be, and the better quality you will get.
    3. Directly select a quality.

    Encoder: Select the encoder you prefer.

    2-pass encoding(optional): This takes twice as long to encode, but it improves the video quality and doesn’t make the file any larger.

    Picture Settings: Here you can set video resolution and crop video. Different players have different resolution specs. For example, the highest resolution supported by the new nano-chromatic is 640*480. The crop function of handbrake is kind of like a decoration here, because it is not powerful or practical. If this function is important to you, you can refer to a different guide.

    (2).Audio Settings

    In this section, you can choose audio tracks and movie subtitle, as shown in the above figure.
    After all settings done, click Start button to rip.

    What version of HandBrake is this? COz the new version comes with lot of presets.
    So for ipod touch users, you need to just select the preset named "iphone & ipod touch"
    There is also a commandline version (HandBrakeCLI). I prefer this one.
    However HandBrake takes a lot of time to encode !! Can anyone point to any tool which takes less time and does the same task ? I know FFMpeg does good but for me it fails for some AVI files !

    Nice guide.
    As said earlier, the newer version comes with presets so you don't have to constantly input the same settings for any device.

    I was expecting this to be another question on how to do it X_X
    You caught me

    The program sounds very powerful and worth to try.
    However, I have owned another program: Pavtube DVD Ripper. I prefer it as its after-sale service is OK.

    Might try this DVD ripper, my laptop keeps on shutting down in the middle. Guess my laptop doesn't have enough ram or something.

    I've been using the Handbrake converter but haven't had any success. I used the preset for ipod touch but only 30 mins of the video gets converted? Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
