    Does anyone know how to do this? I just want to be able to take a Video_TS folder or an ISO or IFO file and convert it to a smaller, mp4, ipod touch compatible file. I have DVD Decrypter, Handbrake, DVD Fab HD Decrypter, DVD Fab Platinum, and DVD Shrink, I just don't know how to put them together to do what I want to do. Can someone please help me.

    Once you have the .iso or Video_TS folder, just open Handbrake and select the file (choose File for the .iso or Folder for Video_TS. Then choose the iPod Touch profile on the right-hand pane. Finally, at the bottom, go to the video options and set target size to 300mb.

    It makes a good quality video but takes a while (at least on my computer, which is fairly slow).

    Yeah thats basiclly what i thought I would have to do. I have some other questions though.
    First, If i set the target size to 300 will it actually go to 300 mb? Also, how do I make sure it only converts the main movie. I dont want the menus or special features, just the main movie. This is mostly because I ripped a dual layer dvd and it came out to 7.5 gb so im not sure how well it will shrink to 300mb. So how can I make sure Im only converting the main movie? Thank you.

    Well, a good way to reduce the size is to choose mpeg 4 encoding instead of h.264, which will shave off a few hundred megs. Also, set the bitrate to something like 500. I can usually get a normal length movie into 400-600 MB, and the quality is decent.
