Airline is an American television reality show that showcases the daily happenings of passengers, ground workers and on-board staff members of Southwest Airlines.
I usually rip the entire video files using DVDFab to the HDD and use AutoGK to convert them to avi. But I found out that DVDFab can convert to avi directly from the dvd bypassing the need to copy the entire video files to the HDD in their full quality.
The only problem is it is a little bit more advanced. AutoGK did all the work for me before but this time I had to set a resolution. I did a test of one episode and, while the quality isn't mind blowing, it almost matches that of AutoGK....except DVDFab encoded A LOT faster than AutoGK. I It used to be 1+ hour per episode to encode and now only around maybe 20-30 minutes an episode and the quality is almost the same so it was worth it.
The only main issues I see are at the very top of the videos but nothing that will harm the enjoyment of the show.
