    Which of the many apps available are you using to rip DVDs (copyrighted or other) to your Mac for playing in iTunes or other player?

    Handbrake needs help with copyrights. I have seen ads for MacX Ripper Pro and Mac Ripper Pro and a few others.

    What say ye?

    have you installed the libdvdcss.pkg file for Handbrake? Copyright issues should disappear.

    My favorite is Jack; but that is really only because he is the only one I can think of.

    I have rarely ever had an issue with Handbrake. And on the couple of occasions when I have, I was able to download a nightly that handled the movie. (I think that there was one movie a number of years ago that I had to wait three days until the nightly took care of the issue with ripping it. I don't remember what movie it was, though.)

    One thing that I frequently do with Handbrake is to start the movie in DVD Player, check the title being played, then use the 'open specific title' in Handbrake to avoid an issue that seems to be associated with attempting to read certain tracks, like poison pills.

    If you are trying to rip Blu-Ray disk's you need MKV first, then you can run the files through HB....Handbrake alone will not see Blu-Ray disks.

    Easiest, least expensive route is using MakeMKV (free while in beta) to decrypt, then take the resulting mkv into HB. Works every time and it's all free.

    Anyone know where i can download the libdvdcss.pkg package?

    It doesn't seem to be on the VLC site anymore. All links point to 404 errors.

    I am just not smart enough to compile it myself.

    Just setting my MacBook up to replace my PC and this is the first speedbump I have run into.

    This squid recommends the jarhead try:

    HTTP://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.12/macosx/libdvdcss.pkg

    Handbrake is the champ. I have tried others but always come back to HB.
