a big thanks to slugger for these sw links. Even i had come now to find a sw to convert dvd to avi. I want to make 2 dvds out of that avi after editing a bit. Tell me will the avi file be of same quality as when it is converted from dv? or will it be of poor quality than that?

Slugger i think u missed my question.
:D LOL!!!! :D
i dint really answer ur question (check out d quote)

as 4 ur query about qlty of avi,

well d final qlty among other things depnds a lot on d codec and d bitrate @ which it is encoded

it is generally agreed upon dat saving a *.VOB into *.avi keeping a traget of 1.4 GB file size with 192 kbps audio will give u a *.avi file dat is DVD qlty (@ least 2 ur eyes ;))

That means u say that when i will be converting the vob file to avi the file size of avi should be a minimun of 1.4gb? Did i understand correctly?

not minmum but a target file size of 1.4GB

or else u cud set vdo bitrate 2 800-900 kbps and den encode d file

but if u new 2 encodin den by setting d target file size 2 1.4 GB d sw will do all d other adjustments 2 optimise ur vdo 4 dat file size

also make 2 passes of encoding instead of a single pass, will give u better result

my personal opinion, when it comes to DVD to AVI, noting can come close a free ware called AutoGK + DVD Decrypter... one word for the combination of 2, the best...

there is a not a single con of these software too me, apart from AutoGK will need heavy system, resources... but when it comes to quality, nothing comes close to AutoGK....

:D
