What’s the best—and easiest—out there now that’s compatible with Catalina? I’ve read about MacX DVD Ripper but from their website it’s not clear that it’s compatible without a workaround. I tried Handbrake yesterday (tried to rip an old TV series DVD) but the finished product was hash. Thanks in advance.

I use Ripit for DVDs. It can rip to MP4 but I like to control my conversion with Handbrake.
For BluRay I use MakeMKV.
I use Subler for meta data, but am also experimenting with its ability to properly handle optional subtitling for AppleTV. My original goto for meta data was MetaZ, which I still occasionally use for quick fixes.
