I'm running Windows 7 and am using to rip the dvds to my harddrive. However, playback isn't watchable as the picture is very stuttery and blocky, only shots that show the same image for a few seconds get shown properly.

The dvd's are ripped as the straight folder structure and if played in XBMC are fine. I've tried installing both the and latest div-x codecs, but that doesn't seem to have helped. I'd like to stick with MCE as it has a high WAF (wife acceptance factor).

Any suggestions?

I have DVDs ripped to .iso which I play in 7mc. I have installed MediaBrowser (highly recommend) which mounts the .iso using Daemon Tools (automatically) and plays it. I believe it also plays ripped DVDs.

AnyDVD does good job of converting the DVD files to something Handbrake can read. You can pick the output format in Handbrake, but I usually pick something that Apple products can read so that I can also get the files on an iPhone through iTunes. THe all play through Windows 7 MC just fine.

Its worth it to pay for AnyDVD in my opinion.

You might also find Jeff's post on some of his video playback escapades useful too.
