Not exactly a worldbeater...,
This review is from: Movies on iPod 2 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use a Mac and a PC and own an iPod, so the attraction of being able to automate all of the video transcoding and ripping I'd been doing as a technically proficient user on the Mac using products like Handbrake, VLC, MTR and ffmpegX seemed, if not irresistible, then pretty powerful.
The install was, as one might expect from most modern software, pretty much painless. It took only a minute or so to install on a Mac Mini running Vista Ultimate SP1 in a dual boot.
The primary interface is best described as functional, if a little clunky. Section titles are slightly misleading and don't make it clear quite whether the functions are for transferring from the source disc or the hard drive. Nothing major, just that the wording is a little unclear.
But that is as far as I got. Any attempt to do anything meaningful with the software, like opening (non-DRM) clips from hard disk to preview (and not huge ones either) met with a leaden unresponsiveness, a steadfast refusal to do anything and an insistence on just hanging. It carried on in this vein even after a couple of reboots, so now I have uninstalled it and written it off as a loss. I didn't even get as far as trying to open a DVD with it.
Your mileage may vary of course, but on the strength of my machine I couldn't recommend this.
