Popcorn 3 - What exactly does it do?

Question

Hi everyone,

 

Excuse me for my lack of knowledge on Popcorn 3, but what exactly does this software do?

 

Does it change DVD's into the correct format (MP4 etc...) for use with other devices such as iPhone, PDA's etc...

 

If I was to purchase the Popcorn Software, would I be able to back up my DVD hard copy collection and transfer them onto my iPhone to view? Will it work with all my shop bought dvd's?

 

Regards, David.

Hi, i'm just after reading a statement on google that Popcorn 3 is a trimed down version of Toast 8.

 

Is this true? and am I able to do any of Popcorn's features on my Toast Titanium 7 application? (i.e. copy DVD's and transfer them to my iPhone easily).

 

Thanks in advance!

SO popcorn does a few things really well.

If you want to get your unprotected DVDs into a format that can be played on your ipod/iphone/PSP/ etc. this this is a great program

 

If you want to get your protected DVDs into a format that can be played on your ipod/iphone/PSP/ etc you might want to look at Handbrake and or mac the ripper.

 

Popcorn has a very easy to use interface. One can almost learn everything on how to use it without reading the user manual.... If you do your research you will be quite please as to what you can do!!!

Popcorn 3 is much faster than Toast for exporting video from a video DVD to other formats. Toast requires an additional step of extracting the MPEG files from the DVD whereas Popcorn doesn't need this step. Popcorn 3 has other features that make it a better choice than Toast for what you're wanting to do. There are a few things that Toast 8 can do that Popcorn cannot, such as exporting to DV format. But Popcorn can do some things lacking in Toast so it isn't just a video-only version of Toast.

 

As for copying video from commercial DVDs, those discs have copy protection. Go to ripdifferent.com to learn more about this.
