Rip DVDs for an iPhone in Linux

Rip DVDs for an iPhone in Linux

The Tombuntu blog points out that the latest Hardy Heron release of Ubuntu Linux doesn’t play nice with multi-platform video/DVD converter HandBrake—at least not the version with a nice graphical interface. For those syncing their iPhone or iPod touch with Linux, or just wanting to get the job done, the author runs through using the command-line-controlled HandBrake CLI. There’s one very simple command to modify and paste that should work for most systems, with options to scale the quality and add markers. Still want a GUI for this job? Try WinFF, which is also available for Windows.
