How to Rip DVDs to Small AVI or MPG Formatted Files

WikiHow has a excellent tutorial on how to convert DVDs into AVI or MPG files. The tutorial is easy to follow and all of the software used is free.

For my personal setup I like to rip my DVDs to my hard drive using DVDShrink, then use DaemonTools to mount the ISO file in a virtual DVD drive. From there I use DVDx to create an AVI file, which I can watch on my Treo 650 using the Core Pocket Media Player, which I blogged about here.

Here are the codecs you need for XviD and DivX.
