    On my pc, I've been using Dvddecrypter + CloneDVD2 to make backups of my DVD movies. However, I cannot find a DVD re-encoding program for Mac. I know Handbrake can encode them to avi/mkv but that's not what I need, I just need to reencode my DVD's so they'll fit on a normal DVD-R (with a choice to get the menus and extras or not, ideally).

    Is there such software for Mac? MacTheRipper allows me to put the DVD files on hdd, but then...

    Well I have heard good things about DVDRemaster but I just use Toast which does an excellent job for compressing and burning to disk after using MTR.

    Once I get a disk ripped to my hard drive, I use DVD2OneX. It will compress the movie to fit on a single DVD. It also does feature-only disks. Great program, but it's not free. I believe Roxio Popcorn also works well.

    I use Toast for my Macbook. I too use AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 for my pc and I love these programs, they work awesome. I wish they would port these to the Mac.

    I agree. Use MacTheRipper to rip it, then use DVD2OneX to make it fit Single Layer DVD.

    1. MacTheRipper 3 to rip DVDs.
    2. Handbrake if I want to encode them in a standard format (e.g. .mp4)
    3. Toast Titanium if I want to burn them to another DVD.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if you want to fit a ripped movie to a single-layer DVD, Toast Titanium will not do that. It will encode the video for DVD, but it won't compress it. You need Popcorn or DVD2OneX.
