    Whenever I use Handbrake it is always in concert with AnyDVDHD.

    No, but I can try that. I'm not overly optimistic at this point, though.

    @pianoman,

    I disagree (that's nice for nonsense). If I buy a CD, DVD, or blu-ray and it gets damaged, I have no choice but to buy it again, unless I make a backup copy. Hence, I make backups that are stored on magnetic media that I can stream to any device in my home (and out of my home using my cloud stuff like Popoplug). This way, I can protect my investment from damage by packing it away. BTW, streaming the same title to two location generally won't work with Blu-ray because the file is huge and is stored on a single hard drive. Trying ot access that same movie from a single hard drive gives "issues" with playback. I can, however, stream other stuff at the same time. Over a gigabit connection I could probably stream 5 or 6 blu-rays at the same time, provide they are not on the same hard drive. According to my DVD Profiler Database, I currently have some 1620 titles in my collection (many of these are multiple discs and many even came with a digital copy, which I never use because they are in general crappy).

    And since you are telling me that what I am doing with media I bought and use inside my own home is stealing, what exactly do you call what Wal-mart is doing with this service they offer to any Joe Blow off the street (with no proof that they even bought the title)?

    I normally use another application to rip the DVD complete to the computer and then use the likes of handbrake to convert this DVD image file to a format for playback on my NAS or the iPad but it should also rip directly from the DVD drive using Handbrake. I typically just do this as it is a faster process when the DVD image is on your hard drive as opposed to the dvd disc.

    One option is to use makemkv, as that will strip off cp. then use handbrake on that mkv file to compress to m4v. The beta of both are free.
