As a followup to DVDFab I found that on the page just before you start encoding, you can change the file name and your final file will be named appropriately, ie. Buffy 1x12 Prophecy Girl.avi, rather than something arcane such as S1Disc3title4.avi So about the only work you gotta do is in setting up...

As an addition, the first thing I did when I bought my Archos was to download the plugins from a torrent swarm. I'm not saying the original poster (or indeed anyone) would do this, but don't bother, it won't work. The plugin is serially linked to your physical device.

When hooked up to the TV, it looks ok. 2 pass is better than one pass, but so far I've encoded 12 episodes of Buffy, and 3 movies. They all look good. But good is relative :) Tom [Edit] to remove subtitles, after you select DVD to mobile (generic) there should be check boxes next to the subtitles. D...

Just to let people know, I downloaded them from a number of trackers, both public and private and they do NOT work. So I bought them (the mpeg2 one not the podcast one).

It crossed my mind too. I even went so far as to download and try and install the plugin. After it failed, I whipped out the credit card and paid for the plugin.

C'est la vie.

I bought my 504 on January 19th, and have had no trouble getting files on and playing. But I do have some experience with ripping and converting into DivX/XviD format because I've been doing it for abou 3 years for my DVD players. 1) DVD Decrypter easily rips most titles. If I'm ripping episodes (eg...
