Great news if you're a Mac user and want DVD's on your PDA. HandBrake 0.7.0beta1 was released on Wednesday.

New features include:

*Chapters selection
*Custom framerate
*Subtitle support
*Automatic check for update
*Custom aspect ratio
*Audio samplerate selection
*mp4/H.264 output
*Proper NTSC support
*AC3 pass-through
*Progress bar in the dock icon (OS X)
*2-pass H.264 encoding
*Constant quality encoding
*Grayscale encoding
*Up-to-date BeOS UI

This is a great boon for those of us who have felt shafted by the dearth of available software to make this process easier. Now instead of using the software cocktail I needed before, I can just pop in the DVD and choose my preferred settings and VOILA! DVD on SD ready for playing on MMPlayer.

Let me know how this works for you guys.

I have been using it for a couple of days now and I must say it is a great leap for OS X users. I am now able to encode DVDs for Kinoma player without having to first go thru divx or avi then thru kinoma producer. I encode straight to mpeg4 using the same settings Sony uses for there trailers to be viewed on PDA. My T3 with a 1Gb Kodak SD card can hold about 4 movies.

Actually, VLC Player is the best one to play DVD and videos on Mac.
