Q: What is the best download for an iMac to convert DVDs to video that works on an iPod?

A: The easiest way to extract DVD video to a format that can be played on an iPod is by using an application called Handbrake. There is a tutorial on how to configure Handbrake to extract and convert DVD video, and how to sync it to your iPod. Since Handbrake is Freeware there will be no additional software cost. Before beginning, make sure that your Mac meets the minimum system requirements, otherwise video conversion could be very slow, or the resulting video could be of a reduced quality.
