We mention this only to note that third-party software for Apple TV is already beginning to appear. Mac (and other platform) users should look to the free MediaFork (HandBrake) which is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 ripper/converter (also available for Linux and Windows).
