1. Rip movie using MakeMKV and save to a home server folder. This rips all titles to an mkv format. App is free and I haven't run in to a disc it cannot read yet.
2. This folder is watched by 'WatchFolder for Handbrake'. I have this folder setup to transcode anything I drop in here (mkv, m2ts, ISO, mp4 etc). I auto-transcode to an iPhone4 640p mp4 file. This way I can watch on my iPhone or stream them to my Apple TV2 or Xoom. The 960x640 quality is still solid enough for me to watch on my 50' and 60' TVs and I don't have to create multiple files for mobile and home theater. Metadata is still wonky but I don't mind editing that later.
3. I use iTunes to stream or airplay to my Apple TV, on my HDTVs but also so that I can use DoubleTwist to stream to my Android devices.
Works well, I usually spend just a few minutes at my PC loading the disc and starting the MakeMKV rip then let it do it's thing until I am ready to edit metadata and be done.
