h264enc (in ubuntu repositories) works well but again doesn't keep
menus but does use chapters from dvds if exporting to mkv and probably
other containers I don't use, its CLI and works well with batch files.
You can import ISOs VIDEO_TS folders and anything your version of
mencoder supports, it exports x264 files in AVI, MKV, MP4, OGM, TS,
Blu-ray and AVCHD disc structure containers.
