Ok, I just got my mac after a long time PC user and I want to rip and burn movies like I normaly do. I have searched for a while now and cant come up with a complete answer, so i want to strip the copy rights off a dvd, shrink it to fit a normal 4.7 gig disc and burn it to said disc. All my own back ups of course! I have found so many answers its hard to process. I am on 10.7.3 and want all compatible programs with that please. Thank you in advane for any help.

I get this if i try to just pick the dvd.
Download the 64-bit VLC version.

And maybe have a look at the links I gave you.
The first described, how to do what you want with available software, the second how to rip and compress the DVD, and the third how to automate the ripping and compressing part.

Or is the information in those guides, at least the first two, hard to understand?

thats why i said you need vlc to break the copyright

make sure you get the same bit version of vlc as your handbrake

if you got handbrake 64 bit get vlc player 64 bit
