    I was using HandBrake until I upgraded to El Capitan. Now it won't work. Is there something like it for EC?
    Thanks.

    HandBrake should work fine with El Capitain, for transcoding files. If you want to rip encrypted DVDs you are out of luck with 10.11. See the Handbrake forums.

    Yes. Wanting to rip DVD's. If the new MacBooks had an optical drive I wouldn't need it. Thanks.

    Thanks!! On first read it looks very complicated. Hopefully I can figure it out. Using an external drive to watch DVD's is very annoying. When mine broke I went to Apple to buy a new MacBook Pro. Was very surprised they don't have the optical drive anymore. Replacing it would cost $300. I did find a new one on eBay recently and it's working wonderfully. But don't know how long it will last.

    Follow the instructions in the link Algus gave. It sounds like you upgraded from an OS where you could rip DVD's. In that case, you should be able to start at the section of the instructions which says:

    "Mac users, specifically those running OS X El Capitan" ...

    For me, after the upgrade, the libdvdcss.2.dylib was not in the QuarantineRoot directory, but in the usr/lib directory under QuarantineRoot.

    I haven't ripped a DVD in ages so I didn't even know that functionality was broken. I haven't tried the instructions but what it says makes sense.

    EDIT: Just tried it and it worked. But I did the file navigation in Terminal (easier for me).

    I'm honestly confused at times why people have problems with this.
    I had a feeling that /usr/lib was a folder for userspace system libraries, so I installed libdvdcss.2.dylib in /usr/local/lib manually, ignoring the *.pkg installer that seemed to in my mind be violating UNIX conventions (as the installer would put it in /usr/lib).

    The 'local' folder seemed like it was meant for the 'local user', so it made sense to me to put the library in /usr/local/lib.
