My Username is Turbotaxi...Been on WinMx for 10 years,I guess, but never joined a forum till now. I live in Florida. The reason I joined this forum is to see if anyone has a better ripping program to prepare DVD's to add movies and videos to my library to share on WinMX. I have used a multitude of various programs searching for the fastest and easiest one to use. I (like a lot of other people, probably) have procrastinated in converting DVD's to smaller files such as AVI or DiVX suitable for sharing just because of the length of time and the hassle involved to create a quality file. Is there anyone here that has experienced my dilemma and found a solution? Is there anyone here who would be generous enough to create a clear, concise tutorial of the programs they use? I have a couple of thousand files I am sharing in my library now and I have many more than that waiting to be converted if someone would be kind enough to share their software with me. My hat's off to all those who have made the effort to make WinMX what it is and brought it back to life.
