Best Software (Free or Cost) to Catalog Divx Movies on a Mac

I am looking to catalog my DVD library (mostly of DivX movies). I own an IMac. Is Delicious Monster the way to go? I want to be able to simply enter the title of the movie and have it come up with the real box art and keep it in A-Z or numerical order. No more no less. I emailed customer service and they never responded so I am consulting the Metafilter Oracle on this one. If there is anything cheaper or free, I am open to that, as well. Until then....a loonnnnnnng Excel spreadsheet. Thanks for your time and have a good Halloween weekend, folks.

How to transfer video from camera to computer

I have a Sony DCR-DVD92 video camcorder that records video on DVD-Rs. I have finalized the disc on the camera and I'm trying to capture the video onto my PC for storage/editing, but the camera doesn't seem to connect to my PC, and my PC DVD player doesn't seem to recognize the mini DVD-Rs that the camera uses. Any suggestions?

CD manufacturer identification on the Mac?

Is there a Mac equivalent to CDR Media Code Identifier. This could be run in Parallels, but I'm not sure it'll be able to get what it needs out of the DVD drive. And of course, it'd be nice to not have to run Parallels.

Need Good Christian DVD for five year old.

What is a good Bible Based DVD or movie that I can offer to my five year old daughter. I want her to get more knowledgable about the bible, but at her age, I'm not looking for a lot of blood or violence. Also, she asks me a lot why there are not girls in the stories. So maybe you know of a good movie that has Mary or Ruth in it? I want her to learn, but I need it to be age appropriate. She likes animation or live people. Thanks, Lynnie-the-pooh

My very first belly dance class proved I need some additional help

I just had my very first belly dance class and discovered I'm a bit clueless when it comes to what the instructor is actually doing with her feet and her hands. And her chest. Pretty much everything she's doing mystifies me a bit, actually. Any recommendations for a very good, very basic Belly Dance dvd that I can practice with, or other resources that might help me get the moves down?

How to Handle Partial Subtitles with Handbrake

Using Handbrake, is there a way to put subtitles onto DVD when they are interspersed in the real movie? Example: the movie Defiance had some English subtitles when characters spoke Russian/German. These didn't come through when I made my first trial run disc. So basically I'm asking for situational subtitles if I can call them that and not the full movie-lenght subtitle added throughout the whole movie. Thanks for your input.

Technophobe seeks help wrangling Dolby 5.1 into plain old stereo

More and more DVDs are coming encoded with Dolby surround sound and many don't have an alternate Dolby stereo option. The resulting sound has way too much background noise mixed in, making it hard to hear the dialogue. Usually, we turn down the volume and turn on the closed captions. Is there another way or am I forced to spend hundreds on a surround-sound system? [more inside]

How to easily convert DVD's to AVI

I'm moving around a lot. Tired of dragging movie DVD's around. Not looking to make an iso copy (i.e. DVDShrink). Too much disk space. ~750MB avi's would be more ideal, but even as a software developer the options I've Googled are confusing. Is there a simple (i.e.1-button) DVD to AVI converter?

Of Beauty and Consolation

During some insomnia nights, some years ago, I was lucky enough to come across with Of Beauty and Consolation on the tv, which was an English translation of the dutch tv program Van de Schoonheid en de Troost. The program is a series of interviews with intellectuals. The Richard Rorty interview is available on-line. Now I'm trying to get the DVD box, and it seems there is a dutch version available, but since I don't know a word of dutch, I'm trying to find the English version. Anyone can help this quest?
