I have a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.6.6
I’d prefer free software, if possible.

    VIDEO_TS folder contains all the DVD's video data and playback information.A typical VIDEO_TS folder may look something like the folder below:VOB,BUP,IFO files.
    If you have IFO files,you can use this DVD Ripper for Mac rip and convert any popular video and audio formats.

    For handbrake presetting, I suppose this article "Handbrake Presets for iPad and iPhone 4" in iFunia can do some help for you.

    If you have access to the original media (the DVD) of the VIDEO_TS folder I suggest to use Handbrake (http://handbrake.fr/) to convert it to MP4.

    Other then that I only know of the following tools:

    Kigo Video Converter Free
    http://www.kigo-video-converter.com/free-video-converter-mac/index.html

    Miro Video Converter (only has presets for mobile devices, maybe quality is good enough)
    http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/

    If they don't work out you can always go for a Free Trial of the following Apps:

    iSkysoft Video Converter

    Xilisoft MP4 Converter

    Hi
    Handbrake
    http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

    When you encode from a VIDEO_TS folder, you need to use a mencoder preset.
    When you encode from a single VOB file, you can use any preset. It seems you have found out how to rip a DVD title to a single VOB file
