    O.k captain america is a weird one. all of my other movies transfer to apple tv no problem. Captain america DVD fails with handbrake 0.9.5 on win x86 & mac. it simply wont take. cant understand it even tho i let it skan for 1 hr+.

    is there a solution for this movie, or not?

    Thank You,

    Need to figure out which title...

    I did this with Thor and it seems to work with Captain America but ya need a lot of space on your HDD; Captain America takes up over 70 GB of space... (I always ditch it later so it doesn't matter for me) I use a program called Fairmount then copy the VIDEO_TS file to my desktop. Takes a good long while; I usually just let it go overnight. After that, I can open it in Handbrake...


    Anyways, for Thor it was title 24; you pick the right title, convert and you have your file. It also burns on Toast if you like making back-up copies. I always get great quality without playing with the settings.

    Play the DVD using DVD Player, play the movie, select Go > Title to see what title the movie is. Once you have this, no need to rip the disk. That 70 GB you're getting is just a bunch of garbage created in the ripping process due to the DRM encryption--DVDs are only 7-8 GB of data.

    Once you have the title, in Handbrake go to File > Open Source (title specific), input the specific title number, choose your settings and start the encode. This method has always worked for me when I either couldn't get the disk to rip with RipIt or when Handbrake got stuck on the source autoscan.

    As was said above, check it yourself as they often have different main title numbers from region to region and even several in the same region. No reason to have someone post it. Check it with a dvd player.

    what kind of dvd holds 70 gigs of anything? let alone 1 single movie?? that's a LOT of space for 1 movie, even if it's a bluray.

    edit: oop i read the above comment about DRM encription, makes sense. you need to download VLC and have that open before you load the movie into handbrake. VLC breaks encription from what i've been told.

    VLC does not need to be open, it just contains a De-CSS library HandBrake can use to decrypt the CSS on the DVD, but sometimes that doesn't work.

    good to know, still I've always had it open and never have I ever had a DVD upwards of 70 gigs to install. that's absurd!!!

    The title was 93 when i tried it and it worked fine, but it stops at the 93 minute mark. I tried 4 times and it stops at the same place every time. I think its at chapter 13 even though I am using the title specific for the whole 120+ min title. Has anyone else gotten this problem of it stopping in the middle of processing where the handbrake thinks its finished???

    Run it through MAKEMKV first. On the first pass it will find a bunch of files. Select only the largest one generally between 3 and 5 Gig, then run the app and it will produce a file with extension .MKV

    Run Handbrake on the .MKV file produced by Makemkv and you will get a .M4v
    file that will play on the apple tv.
