    How does this compare to Handbrake? Anyone?

    I, myself, prefer to use Arista Transcoder which works very well. I have never tried or heard of viDrop and I am now curious to try it out, especially on DVD’s.

    Seeing as how it supports avi files, it makes Handbroke useless to me.

    I discovered this app and I can tell is the best in this category.
    The first screen says not too much, but clic the advanced options and you access to a lot of nice options.
    Very stable, and you can add subtitles. After avidemux, the best one. Easier to use and very very stable.
