I've been searching all over this forum and others for a solution to this, I'm so utterly lost. I [own] a Young Frankenstein DVD and remember using handbrake a LONG time ago to rip it to my computer for my iPod, also an old device. It worked perfectly then. I do remember it taking a long time to work, but hey, if I get that DVD onto my iPod, I would be happy either way. Let's see. Now, I don't know how I lost the file, but I still have the DVD so my plan was simple, Rip it again and be happy. The new Handbrake is causing me to go bald. I'm am VERY not at all happy with it. It asks for the VLC 64 bit in order to find a source, I discovered this after it crashed every time I tried to open a source, (an hours worth of agony). When I tell it to get VLC, it takes me to a page. The file I downloaded doesn't work. I looked around on Google and found that, well, apparently it only works with VLC 1.0.2 which doesn't turn out to be the case either I don't think, because then I found that they don't make a 64 bit VLC. So what is the point of Handbrake demanding that I use 64bit VLC if there isn't one, which I still don't know yet, honestly. When I tell it to "Attempt Scan Anyway" it takes me right back to that gosh darn download page, which kind of makes my head just a little hotter. I'm at a loss. I just want to rip the hardcopy of my Young Frankenstein DVD to my computer and then convert it to MP4. I have a program that works well in conversions, I'm a little worried about having several files. Is there a way to combine them? I'm going to lose it. Haha. Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated. ALSO: I have a Macbook Pro 10.5.8 Processor: 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 duo Memory: 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM I don't know how much of that is needed, but anything that helps. And if more is needed, I'll gladly provide it.
