This new Universal Binary format video disc duplication and conversion program allows Macintosh owners to transfer the contents of a video file or DVD to another DVD, or onto an iPod, PSP, or similar device.

Using a simplified version of the interface from Toast (the company’s disc-burning software), Popcorn 2 asks you to insert a disc or choose a video file, then allows you to convert or copy it with minimal additional interaction – unless you want to dive into file size and quality settings.

You can even shrink 9GB dual-layer DVDs down to 4.7GB single-layer size, or import files directly into iTunes for easy syncing to your iPod.

The only problems: like many other utilities of its type, it can’t do anything with commercial DVDs unless another program has de-encrypted them, and its importation of video file formats isn’t quite universal.
