after using this application some... i think it's a solid/simple little conversion application.

seems to support conversion from DVD to x264 or MPEG4 and even supports Subtitles etc. you can even hardcode subtitles into the video stream.

Fantastic app. Ripping to x264 in .mkv is so easy and my TV can play stuff straight from USB memory stick. Awesome!

Wow, the release cycle on Handbrake is really long. I am so glad that the command prompt is hidden, now. It always drove me nuts when it would pop up all the time while I was typing.

Website states that it does not support AVI or OGM any more.

It supports .avi and .ogm inputs not outputs. The OP needs to be corrected.
