One of our latest post was about tunelyrics and I thought this application would be a good choice to mention as another option for iTunes lovers.

Cinematize (“back-up” your DVD collection) for Mac PowerPC

DVD Extractor and Converters

Have you guys ever encountered a situation where you want to make a “back-up copy” from DVD to Hard Drive and you don’t know how to do it and everything on internet seems too difficult to comprehend?   I have recently been in this situation and the results were very bad because I ended up putting the DVD in and the famous and life-saving command + c & command v did the job, but the results were not satisfactory, but were at least safe and saved on my HD.

If you have a lot of DVDs and want to spend some money to do the right thing with better results, Cinematize is a good application that you should consider.

*Cinematize – 3.03 (Demo / $59.95) PowerPC 10.4 / 10.5. http://www.miraizon.com/index.html – This is a really good DVD extraction and conversion program which allows you to extract audio and video clips from any DVD and convert to the most popular formats – small clips or the entire DVD!  It’s really easy to use and the results are very professional.

DivX 6 Converter/Encode for Mac PowerPC

Right now for Intel Mac can download DivX8 but PowerPC Macs can still install DivX6.  It’s good software to have installed because it plays all DivX videos and MKV formats.  You can convert files ending in one of the following extensions: .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .avi and divx, by just dragging and dropping!    One nice feature of DivX is the conversion profile.  The profiles are predefined templates where you choose the dimensions you want, select the video bitrate and other conversion settings that are appropriate for various playback devices.  There are 5 standard profiles, handheld, portable, home theater, high def and custom.
