John, thanks for the awesome tutorial on how to use an equally awesome program!!!
Before I knew what I was doing I foolishly burned all of my travel video onto DVDs, mainly because that's what I had available. Of course now I have a Mac and used it to edit footage for my travel blog. What a production it was before I had the sense to get Aimersoft DVD Ripper for Mac OS.
