    New Mac user here, trying to gather info so I can all I was used to do on pc on my Macbook Pro. Which software is commonly used and/or best for decrypting DVD's and reencoding them to fit on regular DVD-R's? On pc I usually used CloneDVD2 in combination with AnyDVD.

    Following the rules would give you HandBrake. ;)

    I use MacTheRipper to rip the DVD to the hard drive. If I want to burn a DVD, then I use Toast.

    Mac The Ripper for making exact copies of DVDs.

    HandBrake for transcoding into standard video files (e.g. .avi, .mp4). You'll need to also download VLC with handbrake, since it uses VLC for decrypting the DVDs.

    Do you have an URL for Mac The Ripper? Google only turns up results for older versions for me.

    You can get MTR 2.6.6 .

    This version works very well and is easier to get than the latest version.

    Yes, just go to www.ripdifferent.com and join the MTR forum. Then just read the sticky "How to get Mac The Ripper" and follow it and you can have the latest version which is 3.0r14m.

    EDIT: Although as sushi says, the abandoned version 2.6.6 does do pretty well for its age!
