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?

Ripping a TV series in Handbrake

I can rip movies to Xvid using Handbrake and it is all good....it rips the movie but no special features which is fine....But lately, when I tried John Adams (miniseries) or the TV show the 4400, it only took one chunk out of the whole disc and ignored the other episodes. Is there a way around this so I can get all the episodes even if they are lumped into one .avi file? (I really don't mind all the fast-forwarding). Thanks...and to all of those reading/responding...have a great weekend.

subs on AVI?

Two-part question about subtitles and DVD-to-AVI conversions: 1) How do I, using open-source software, "hard-burn" a subtitle file onto an AVI from a DVD source? 2) Even better, is there a video player that can load and display subtitle files to an avi format? What software & subtitle formatting should I be using? Extra points all around if your solutions handle Mandarin without encoding hitches. [more inside]
