I use HandBrake to create a manageable library of movies, but when there’s nothing on television, I’d like to watch some of the movies that I have on my hard drive through VLC while HandBrake is busy ripping. Can I actually do that?
I used RipIt ($24.95, thelittleappfactory.com) to compress my Kill Bill DVD to watch on my iPad. Trouble is, the movie is full of scenes spoken in foreign languages, and the English subtitles don’t appear in the file. Am I stuck missing all that awesome Tarantino dialogue?
In-flight movies suck. They’re usually not the greatest films to begin
with, and then anything that could possibly offend anyone--otherwise
known as “the good parts”--gets edited out. Lucky for you, all you need
is a MacBook and some headphones to stage your own film festival at
35,000 feet. But spinning a DVD takes a serious toll on battery life,
which is where DVD ripping comes in.
