Hi there. New to this forum. I have 4 wedding DVDs that I am trying to rip to my mac (OS X 10.6.8). I want to then edit these in imovie (as thats all i have) and then burn the movies back on to individual dvds. I downloaded handbrake (64 bit) and VLC (32-64 bit) and have ripped the DVDs to mpv format. However iMovie will not import them in. Won't recognise it. When I went to 'get info', says the mpv is protected. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. The DVDs are not copy protected as far as I know (but how would I know for sure)? Also what's the settings to select when ripping DVD to export to iMovie to edit and burn back onto DVD? Is handbrake the best or meg streamclip? Also with mpg streamclip, says I have to purchase the apple DVD playback component but I don't want to purchase it of it won't rip the DVDs to a high quality finish or incase it doesn't work at all. Please help, at my wits end with this.
