    What do you mean you can't use them?

    We need a little more detail on what's occurring since updating your apps.

    Yeah, PowerPC applications are meant for those PowerPC Macs, they were no longer released since 2006, the introduction of Intel Mac.
    Apple included a software called Rosetta to make those PowerPC applications run on Intel Macs, but Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is the last OS version that Rosetta software was working with, thus all OS X versions since Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will no longer run PowerPC applications.

    There are other tools to rip your video DVDs, and even HandBrake is capable of ripping video DVDs directly if VLC Player is installed.
    Post #3, link 1 has a guide, if you are interested.
    Otherwise there is always the route of going back to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard via a clean install.

    As you probably use MacTheRipper for ripping (copying and removing the copy protection) the video DVD and then use HandBrake for converting (transcoding, change format and codec) the ripped video DVD to an MP4 or MKV file, you can leave out the ripping process entirely by using HandBrake only (as mentioned in point 3 in the first guide I linked to in post #3 - VLC needs to be installed for that).

    You insert the video DVD in your optical disk drive (ODD).
    You close any application that is opening due to the video DVD being inserted, most likely DVD Player.
    You open HandBrake, and as you did before, you click on the SOURCE button, but instead of going to the folder you ripped to, you go to the inserted video DVD visible in the Sidebar under DEVICES and proceed like you did before.

    Is that workable for you?

    For more information, you might have a look at the first link in post #3.
