DVD Shrink 3.2 to rip, reauthor, choose what language/subtitle match I want, etc.
Then I use Dr. Divx to take the resulting .vob files and make a Divx .avi from that.
And if you REALLY wanna get small on filesize, run that Divx .avi through the Windows Media Encoder Toolset.
DVD Shrink, and Windows Media Encoder Tools are free.
Dr. Divx is not.
