No Frills DVD2iPod can be used as open source executables to convert unencrypted DVD media to iPod format.

I wrote No Frills DVD2iPod because I wanted a way to make iPod compatible video files from iDVD projects I had burned to DVD but for which I hadn't saved any source files. I also wanted a way to do it without having to configure many settings.

A good application to let you test settings for No Frills DVD2iPod is MPEG Streamclip. With MPEG Streamclip you can select a small part of a .mpg or .VOB file by setting input and output points, and export the selection to a new file, which you can drop into No Frills DVD2iPod. You can find a listing for MPEG Streamclip at MacUpdate.

This program has quite a bit of potential, but I still enjoy using Handbrake Lite much better.

Handbrake Lite is very fast and easy to use. At present, I believe it does not include the capability to encode to h.264. If you anticipate ever connecting your iPod to a TV or playing the video from your iTunes library on your computer, you may appreciate the improvement in quality afforded by h.264. It's probably more important, though, to match the framerate between source and output to avoid jerks in the motion, and Handbrake Lite does that for you. Check 0SEx for letting you do custom dividing/joining of your DVD video content. I like to use 0SEx to collect the chapters or titles I want combined, then I just drop them on No Frills at the highest bit rate setting so I can rely on them being playable on the iPod. Plus, they still look pretty decent if I watch them on the computer, especially if I use VLC instead of iTunes to play back.

does exactly what it says it does, haven't had any problems with it. however; it would be nice to have some kind of visual progress bar, to at least know its working and not just hanging.. didn't know it was working the 1st time, had to force quit even though it was doing what it was suppose to.

  • You can drag the source files/folders even from an non-writable directory such as a mounted DVD volume.
