Auto Rip n Compress for Windows Media Center

The ability to rip movies to your hard drive is supported in some commercial applications (like MyMovies), but here’s not only a FREE plugin for Media Center to do that, but in addition to ripping it will compress it into a format of your choice, such as WTV so you can view your movies on all your extenders.

The application called Auto Rip n Compress uses 3rd party apps to do the ripping and will use Handbrake to do the compression. I like the idea of doing the archiving from Media Center and not having to go back to the desktop to kick off a rip, the more apps that keep us in the 10 foot UI the better.
