I have VLC on my system.Hmm, you should have gotten a popup when you first installed 0.9.9 that VLC could not be found ( 0.9.8 used pre vlc's libdvdcss.2.dylib for decrypting However as of vlc 2.0 it was omitted from vlc).
Therefore, you should have gotten a message saying that vlc media player isn't supported so either use a third party app or you can download the proper library and install it which would direct you to this link:
That installer will install it on your system and HB will then find it.
Um, it won't. Like I said VLC >= 2.0 has no libdvdcss.dylib!I have VLC on my system.
Ahh ... That's way old.
Updated to 2.0.8
I'll see if that helps.
Hey, what is MTR? Do you have any other details?Using 0.9.9x86_64
Lately, when I put a DVD in, handbrake scans it and then tells me "no valid source found".
I'm having to rip with MTR and then use handbrake.
MacTheRipper, it is a really old ripping app for DVDs, but still works well on most DVDs.Hey, what is MTR?
Is it copied protected? If so the first part of this. The part under "get software".Does anyone have any suggestions what could be wrong and what to try? Any help is greatly appreciated as the contents of this DVD has great sentimental value.
Yeah, that sucked, luckily I wasn't affected by it.I'd stay well clear of Handbrake after the Malware incident a couple of years ago. It was truly inexcusable! And pretty horrific.
I don't know about the others, but the real strength of HB lies in the x264 (and now also in x265) encoder. It is the best free AVC (HEVC) encoder when it comes to bitrate vs PQ tradeoff, hands down.Maybe I might look into MDRP, but I probably will just stick with Handbrake.
Did I mention, that you can use HandBrake to re-compress a HDR10 movie and still preserve the HDR??I don't know about the others, but the real strength of HB lies in the x264 (and now also in x265) encoder. It is the best free AVC (HEVC) encoder when it comes to bitrate vs PQ tradeoff, hands down.
Are you saying Handbrake won’t read them do to the encryption?handbrake does not read MY dvd's using Osx el cap no matter how i download that libcss thingee, so my mini is using MKV which has a bigger and better output screen. im think i have the subtitles situation solved as well.hope this helps
thanks for the reply, i get the 32 bit 64 bit warning which i dont understand and tired of trying to understand so i stopped using Handbrake on el cap and tired of forcing things to work on these apple products, the other software seem to convert a much better picture and works better with VLC. VCL? i always hated abbreviations
When I used El Capitan, which was only a few months ago, Handbrake used VLC to decrypt the DVDs, you didn’t have to open VLC, just have it installed.thanks for the reply, i get the 32 bit 64 bit warning which i dont understand so i stopped using Handbrake on el cap and tired of forcing things to work on these apple products, the other software seem to convert a much better picture and works better with VLC.

I've been using MDRP for several years now, with excellent results with anything I throw at it. It has a 5 instance free trial, so it is definitely easy to tell if it will meet your needs, and worth taking a look at. Very easy to use.Try MDRP - it's the easiest and super quality software that i've ever come across for ripping a DVD. The first 5 DVD rips are free.
Brilliant piece of software.

It is old in the sense that it is the grandfather of DVD ripping programs. It is new in that it is updated, with 5.2 coming out soon with better support for Mohave. [5.1 does work though].MacTheRipper, it is a really old ripping app for DVDs, but still works well on most DVDs.
They are entirely different programs. MDRP is more "mac" friendly in the sense that it has a simple interface and is great when it just works. MTR can be simple to use, but then it has a whole ton of options. ISO extraction, Rip and Rebuild, Title - MainFeature extraction. It has DVDProbe to solve problems to analyze and handle problematic disks. I don't even pretend to understand all of them. It is the most powerful DVD ripping program that I have seen. Doesn't do blu-rays though. Purchase process ($10) is rather complex since you have to make a donation via PayPal to get the license. License is tied to one machine. Upgrade your OS and you have to request a new license (no charge).
