Just got a new pc running windows 8 and I have tried numerous rippers, the last one taking 3 hours to rip the godfather only to make an mp4 which was unwatchable. (splotchy) even on VLC.

What do you guys recommend? Besides buying a mac.

And should I just wipe windows and use linux?

Makemkv to rip your dvd to the raw mkv file, then use handbrake to re-encode to something like mp4.

handbrake is what took three hours to rip and convert and made an mp4 that was barely recognizable.
I'll check out makemkv though thanks.
It might also be that I'm highly inept Razz

Handbrake shouldn't take that long at all. Use makemkv first then run the mkv through handbrake with default settings.

Not done an mkv with handbrake in a while (last time I ran that I had a very slow machine) so not too sure what the timings are. It also depends on your handbrake settings. I just use the universal normal settings with web optimised ticked.
