Program to convert .VOB to .AVI, .MPEG, etc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a couple TV shows that I would like to put onto my HDD for portability, but I don't like the idea of a bunch of .VOB files in folders. I'm using CloneDVD2 & AnyDVD to burn the disc to my PC, but I'm looking for a program that could convert it to a single file format, like .AVI or .MPEG.

As for format, it doesn't really matter to me so long as the file size stays pretty small and at least the original quality is retained. Preferably interested in a program that's free, but I would be willing to pay for one that isn't too expensive if it's any good. Any recommendations?

UPDATE: If anyone is interested, here's a great guide on how to rip a TV series from DVD and convert to single .MP4 files

Handbrake would be a good program to try, DVD Clone will copy a dvd straight to avi or mpeg tho if you want to skip a couple steps.
