    I've done a few of my collection with YadeX, and Toast Titanium by just getting the Video_TS and Audio_TS stuff and burning it on a dvd..

    It is kind of annoying without the main screen... is there a better way to backup movies?

    I've already had people ignored putting my DVDs without putting them into the cases, so I'm tired of getting scratched DVDs now. I'm aware that making backups of your own dvds which is totally legal, right?

    Thanks!

    Awesome! I think I had handbrake before.. I'll download it and give it a shot.

    Thank you.

    I think you also need to have VLC installed as well. Handbrake works beautifully for me :)

    In my opinion, you need both Mac DVD Ripper Pro (or RipIt) AND Handbrake in your toolbox, depending on exactly how you want to back up your DVDs

    MacTheRipper is nice too if you want to be able to setup a long queue in Handbrake for encoding. MTR has some issues with newer encoding methods of DVDs though, so it works best on older DVDs (talking about the older free version here).

    Yes, I should have mentioned that. On some DVDs that are copy-protected you'd need VLC to get around that (or something like that, anyway).

    I use RipIt to rip DVDs and Handbrake to encode them in x264; works great. For Bluray… I won't even go into that. It's just freaking slow to encode them!
