Check out MetaX - it's been incredibly helpful at pulling metadata from various online sources. You pick the one that you want. I have yet to find something it didn't find.

Re the disclaimer: I second this. Everything that I've ripped and have available are what I purchased and own the physical disc for.
Oh, ok, so it works like DVD43. Only difference then is that one is free. Most of the 'content unlockers' tended to be 2 step.

I don't encode often enough to worry about MetaX. We do it more on a "I want to bring this movie this weekend" basis. If I ever got serious about it I might look into it. I've still got several hundreds of movies that haven't been ripped yet.

I have a dedicated server (6 tb) at home running windows media center. I use any dvd/clone dvd to rip them to the server then copy over what we want to a 2 tb portable hard drive for the trailer connected to a small computer. I can also link to a phone for wi fi and surf the web when a signal is availible. This was set up by son inlaw who works in IT. I know how it works but dont nessisarily know all the details

I didn't realize DVD43 was free. Sounds like they accomplish the same thing. I know that I used one on our old PC and it wouldn't work when we upgraded to a 64-bit install of Windows. I don't recall what it was.

I'm curious if you know any details about the "small computer" in the trailer.

We also have a dedicated hot spot device instead of using or phones for Internet since I work regularly from the camper. Well, that and my mother-in-law- it was a hassle to have her ask me to setup my connection so she could connect. The dedicated hot spot is just there and always on.

Do you mind expanding on this? I'm not understanding what you're saying or suggesting.

I have a dedicated hot spot device that I get internet through for our non-cellular devices.

Unless something has changed recently (and I'll admit it may have since my last round of ripping) if you have the 64bit version of handbrake all it takes is to copy a .dll file to the right folder and you don't have to mess with DVD43 or AnyDVD. Just FYI. I have a laptop I pieced together from 3 broken ones, we call it frankenputer and it lives in the popup now with some music and movies copied to it just in case. Our phones are still on a grandfathered unlimited data plan so if there is cell service we can just netflix or whatever on a rainy day.

I read that and thought the same. I have 64bit Windows. I read an article and put that DVD into the right folder but still had issues with a few DVDs. Once I installed AnyDVD - it ripped right through. I literally did before/after attempts on 2 of them (didn't work vs. did work).

I think what he is saying is that it's probably best not to publish in the forum

but do a search for XBMC, or rasberry pi with xbmcubuntu (sic), or if you don't want to fuss with it read some reviews of the G box Midnight on amazon. ( I have one its glitchy but mostly works) We too have XBMC with many add ons on Frankenputer.

I thought about building a raspberry pi computer, but wanted something ready made/off the shelf that I could just pickup and use. Kind of like that G Box Midnight that you mentioned. Unfortunately I hadn't heard anything about this before- looks pretty neat. I'd still need a step-by-step idiot's guide to setting it all up.

Wierd, I never had an issue except with some Disney movies, and it didn't seem to matter what I tried anyway to rip it. But where there is a will there is a way

Really isn't much to set up on that, I didn't even have to hunt for the goodies like in the windows version of XBMC. BUT it's running on Android so has lots of customizations specifically to make it run a bit better, which breaks some add ons occassionally which work wonderfully on window/linux loads. eventually they update and fix, or reloading is super easy too, but to say it's as easy to use as something like you're Roku would be a lie, but easier than building a linux box probably.
