I was hoping someone could help me. I know there must be a way to do this.
My instructional dvd needs to be burned to be able to show it to my students.

It wouldn't work in MTRipper. It said mirroring or somthing wouldn't work.

So I downloaded handbrake.

I didn't have a clue what I was doing so I didn't jack with any settings, just ripped. This took quite some time but the quality was great and it was in quicktime. Problem is it only burned one chapter-right in the middle. There are 5.
What did I do wrong? :confused:

In the top left corner you can select which chapter(s) to rip. The names are usually fairly obfuscated, but you can usually figure out which one(s) you want by the length.

MacTheRipper is for decrypting commercial DVDs not for burning, HandBrake is for converting DVD to mpeg4.

Clarify what you mean here:
"My instructional dvd needs to be burned to be able to show it to my students."

Do you have a DVD that you need to make copies for the students? Do you what to put the video on the web for viewing?

Ah, it worked, thanks Unsanity!

I wanted to put it on a laptop HD so students could view it as we don't have a DVD player in my Art room.


My next question: Can I edit my Quicktime movie in imovie or some other program. Like if I wanted to cut out a section that I don't need and don't want to fast forward to?

Thanks! I love Mac Rumors! You guys and gals are terrific!

No problem, glad to help.

You should definitely be able to import the movie into iMovie or any other video editing program, although the length may be an issue. In that case you could use Quicktime Pro or possibly another program (www.versiontracker.com).

Chances are, your instructional DVD is not copy protected in any way. All you need to do is copy it. I would use Toast for that, but I'm sure it can easily be done with Apple's Disk Utility or even just using a Burn Folder.
