Your best best is to get BitComet version 0.84 (later versions have
ads on them, which you can sometimes get rid of) and go to a
bittorrent site like Mininova, EZTV or Isohunt. My impression is that
the Gordian Knot or its easier to use AutoGK programs are the best
software to convert DVD mpeg files to XviD format. These two freeware
programs create a data file that has everything but the closed
captions on the original. VLC media player does a fine job playing
back these compressed files, it even has an option so that if you find
a .srt subtitle file for the movie, you can play that with the movie,
very useful with some foreign movies you download that don't come with

Compressing video takes a long time and sometimes the guy doing the
transcoding, who has experience at doing this, flubs it, maybe having
audio out of synch or jumps in the video. Then the transcoded XviD
or .avi file is "nuked" by other downloaders who spot the flaw. This
happens a lot at TV show torrents sites.
