i'd look around the tutorials at http://www.videohelp.com/ and http://www.doom9.org/ if using freeware.

AFAIK AutoGK is the best one-click solution.

An alternative would be to use GordianKnot and do everything manually. That's what I use. Robot4Rip for preparing, GordianKnot for encoding. See http://www.doom9.org for guides.

today I tried out
anyDVD in combination with Nero Recode, which is pretty fast in encoding. The quality is also really good.  :Thmbsup:
