Hello. I have a lot of DVDs and would like to put them all onto my new iMac so I can watch then without the hassle of inserting a DVD. I would also like to put some of these DVDs onto my iPod so I can watch them on the go. I have no idea how to rip DVDs. A Mac program would be best but I suppose I could rip the DVDs onto my PC and then transfer them onto my iMac but that would be a bit of a hassle. I have heard of Handbrake. Is this all you need to rip DVDs? How long does it take? Is the quality DVD quality? And most importantly, is it free? I know this a bit of a nooby question but I'm new to all of this.
