    Does anyone here have any recommendations on any free software that will copy a DVD to MP4?
    New TVs should be able to play mkv, you can try MakeMKV, I backup all my DVDs using it.

    Key - MakeMKV is free while in beta - www.makemkv.com

    Hi there

    That program does work --it's been in Free beta for at least 3 years now !!! - I think though every so often you have to re-download and install.

    The only problem with ripping this way you probably won't get the DVD menus / setup options / audio language streams and subtitles. However subtitles are easily obtainable in real time if you use KODI as the player and add the opensubtitle.org addin. (Or any other subtitle site you might prefer to use).

    Cheers

    If I can't get on with Handbrake, I might just buy it. $19.95 is a reasonable price and I know it works. Thanks.

    I find Handbrake can be slow. I use the MPEG4 codec set to Constant quality 1 (Highest quality) which runs at about 4x real time (so that's two hours video in 30 minutes). This seems to be the fastest I can get Handbrake to run, then I compress the resulting large file using FFMpeg afterwards.
    Thanks Bree. I have it down to around 30 minutes which I can live with.
