I've been using mac.jedi's amazing Automator actions to rip and encode all of my DVDs for streaming to my Apple TV, but I have lots of DVDs with foreign region codes (i.e. not region 2, where I am). Fairmount doesn't seem to like ripping them, and VLC no longer seems to play them either. Any ideas on how to rip and/or play them on my iMac? There's a separate issue of ripping some other DVDs (like Wall.E and District 9) with funky copy protection. I end up with a MASSIVE rip that is completely useless. Anyone got any ideas on this? My current machine is a late 2009 Core 2 Duo (3.06) 21.5 inch iMac with 4 GbRAM and a 1 Tb hard disk, running Lion.
