A must have if you want to use your Flip Camera for Itunes (on a Mac)

UPDATE!

I have found a very important use for Roxio Crunch. It allows me to convert my Flip Videos to a format for Itunes. This may not sound like much, but without Roxio Crunch I would be up-a-creek. It also allows me to convert home-made dvds (such as our wedding video) into a format that allows play on a Ipod.

As for converting commercial DVDs- you can download Handbrake for free - but Roxio Crunch will work as a converting tool when you need to get something into the correct format. 4 stars

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was VERY excited to receive this product. I have been looking for a convenient way to convert my DVD collection into Itunes. Well - apparently I will need to keep on looking.

I have tried two seperate DVDs ( "The Office:Season 2" and an episode of "The Twilight Zone") and apparently both are encrypted.... and Crunch will not convert or support any encrypted product. I am disappointed, but there are other programs on the internet that will allow you to do this. So what is the value in "Crunch"? I am assuming that if you have a large collection of home movies on DVD you will be able to convert them for viewing on Apple TV or your Video Ipod... and I guess there may be some un-encrypted DVDs for sale (although I selected a "Twilight Zone" DVD because I thought that it was the least likely thing that I owned that would be encrypted.)

Pros-

- A means to transfer home movies or other personal media to a format that be viewed on Apple TV or your Video Iphone.

- Easy to load onto my computer

Cons-

- 98% of what most people want ripped/converted is encrypted and therefore this software is useless to use on them.

Final verdict- unless your goal is to convert home movies or other types of un-encrypted media then you will probably be severely disappointed.
