Top Ten Free Video Rippers, Encoders & Converters

Here’s a great list from Lifehacker. I use many of these, especially iSquint, VLC and Handbrake. I’m also a big fan of Viddownloader as it converts .flv files from streaming video sites (e.g., Youtube) right to .avi files. This bypasses the need to use another tool such as Riva to prepare video for iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere, etc.
