Videos on the Road
Well it used to be incredibly complicated to backup DVDs to your hard drive for those long trips with the kids. Things have gotten much easier though with:
* “AutoGK”:http://autogk.net. Gordian Knot is certainly the most powerful of the utilties out there, but super hard to use. AutoGK is the simplified version. The stable release 1.25 has bugs, but the latest beta 1.53 which you install on top is way better.
* SourceForge.net: Project Info – AC3Filter. The AutoGL generates files in Xvid format and in either MP3 or AC3 depending on how much space you give it. To listen to AC3, you need a decoder that Windows doesn’t come with. AC3Filter is an open source project that lets you hear AC3 content from Windows Media, Winamp, etc.
