->> Where is a good place to download movies and tv shows from? Free or otherwise?
I have a Nook and an Iphone and I would like to download a few shows to have while I'm traveling.
I'm looking for an alternative to iTunes.

thanks,

Free - don't know where to download, but as PJ mentioned, Hulu is "the" place to watch online.

Otherwise - iTunes

->> iTunes

I have a few movies on my iPhone and iPad, works great.

And when you can, Netflix streaming also works well for both.

Especially good for Mark Rebilas because they have EVERY episode EVER of Family Guy.

Not that I have ever used it, but I hear that as long as you don't agree to download the garbage they try to get you to use and just play the videos, this is a wonderful resource. I mean, this is what I have heard... ;-)

thanks,

->> I would also love to hear about a good tool for ripping DVDs on a PC. I've tried a couple in the past and they didn't seem to work very well. Very clumsy interface and not worth the hassle in the end.

It looks like there is a Handbrake download for Windows. anyone ever use it?

->> Yes, I've used the Windows version of Handbrake to rip DVD's for my ipod Touch though it's been a while. It was pretty straight foward and there's also a fair amount of help on the web since it's widely used.

I've also had success with AnyDVD which isn't free but works like a charm.

->> For you Windows users, you're gonna want AnyDVD:

http://www.slysoft.com/en/

This application runs in the system tray and disables CSS (copy protection used on DVDs) on the fly. That way, your system - as well as any other program - sees the DVD in your drive as being non-protected.

You'll also want AVS Video Converter:

http://www.avs4you.com/AVS-Video-Converter.aspx

This will take the contents of the DVD and reformat them to fit your portable media.
