    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.

    Then get another ripping application, like Mac DVD Ripper Pro, which is recommended by the MTR team, or the ones listed in the second link.

    run handbrake pick your source (dvd drive) pick output and quality and hit start


    burn is good if your doing direct dvd to dvd

    click open with Thor highlighted

    ----------

    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

    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?

    Yes, you must have the 64-bit version of VLC player, if you have the 64-bit version of HandBrake, as mentioned by iisforiphone and me and the second guide I linked to.

    ----------

    What about HandBrake then? What does the About HandBrake window say?

    are your trying to rip the dvd (convert the video file to mkv m4v)?


    if your trying to make an exact copy of a dvd use Burn
