    I've read handbrake doesn't work on Sierra. Is this true? Want to put my DVD collection on my iPad.

    Works fine. Keep in mind that HandBrake doesn't remove the dvd copy protection.

    I have not had any problems running Handbrake in Sierra either.

    Like I already wrote, HandBrake doesn't remove the copy protection from dvd.

    Handbrake works fine for me and also decrypts copy protected DVDs :)

    The basic issue is libdvcss.pkg won't install on macOS due to System Integrity Protection, but all you have to do is put the libdvdcss.2.dylib file into /usr/local/lib and it works like a charm

    You can download that file from here: https://download.videolan.org/libdvdcss/1.2.11/macosx/

    iVI Pro (which uses Handbrake, of course).

    Do this and Handbrake will work fine on Sierra, worked for mine. DVDs aren't scrambled or protected anymore!

    Thanks for the help. Where do I find /usr/local/lib?

    This is a little easier. Install Homebrew in the terminal, you do so with this command:
    /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
    Installing homebrew takes a moment to install.

    Once installed, type this command: brew install libdvdcss
    That will install the library needed. Handbrake finds it on its own.

    And why Homebrew, well later, you might find yourself using it for more things.

    Talk about a sledgehammer to crack a nut. If a poster is having difficulty finding a folder recommending Homebrew will just end up confusing the situation even more.

    @EAB Just use MakeMKV, life will be a lot simpler.

    Thank you @Lunder89 and @steve23094. Appreciate the help. Finally found the missing folder. MakeMKV works well, but Handbrake gives me lots of options in one step.

    If you really want to use libdvdcss, you shouldn't use the one from that old package from vlc, because it might not work in the future.

    Thank you. I found the latest release online, and it's working perfectly now, so hope that will keep up.

    Mirror Download Server Compromised - HandBrake
    https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=36364

    Anyone who has downloaded HandBrake on Mac between [02/May/2017 14:30 UTC] and [06/May/2017 11:00 UTC] needs to verify the SHA1 / 256 sum of the file before running it.

    Anyone who has installed HandBrake for Mac needs to verify their system is not infected with a Trojan. You have 50/50 chance if you've downloaded HandBrake during this period.
