* Insert disc :P
* Use DVD decrypter to rip each episode seperately to its own folder
* Encode using StaxRip
Might detail my settings more (for StaxRip) but it's an easy enough process as StaxRip will by default give you an h.264 file with aac audio, nice but won't play on my divx capable dvd player.
Plus you don't gain much as it's only dvd quality to begin with.
