    I usually use the Handbrake/Mac The Ripper combo when getting my dvds to my iPod/iPad. I went to start one up today and both programs wouldn't work within Lion. What are they best ways to do this now? Thank you so much for your help!

    Handbrake is working fine for me with Lion... I've ripped several DVD's already.

    Good to know. I went ahead and re-installed Handbrake and that seems to work, but Mac the Ripper still tells me PowerPC programs are not supported...

    The old free version of MTR is indeed PPC and a goner with Lion

    Try RipIt or Mac DVDRipper Pro
    Neither is free but both are worth their price

    You need VLC installed aswell since VLC comes with libcss which breaks DVD encryption

    just search for MacTheRipper 3.0r14M [k'ed] and this will work on Lion perfectly and its free. Still has the same interface as older versions.

    [k'ed] means the copy protection has been removed and it is not free, just illegal

    MRT 3.x is not legitimately free. You have to make at least one "donation" to obtain a license. It's a "donation" rather than an actual payment to skirt some potential legal issues.

    I used to use MTR, but getting the updates at the time was a pain. It involved keeping records of the "donations" and some other information which had to be emailed to the developer. I got tired of it and switched to RipIt. I think MTR upgrades are now easier to obtain since I least dealt with it.

    MTR gives you a lot of control; RipIt has a much easier interface. I hardly ever rip DVDs, but when I do rip them I've had no problems with RipIT. DVD2OneX compliments both MTR and RipIt if you want to create an image that will fit on a single layer disk, have just the movie and none of the other bloatware, etc. I love being able to put the disk in and have the movie start immediately. No commercials, no menus, etc.

    I personnally think the best compatible mac os x 10.7 lion dvd ripper is currently DVD Ripper for mac v2.0.3. It handles a lot of DVDs others won't and it can recover scratched DVDs that no other software will dare to try. Free trial if you want to give it a go!:apple:

    I didn't want to start a new thread for this, but does Ripit work on Lion?

    Ripping DVDs with Lion

    On Mac OS X Lion, lots of application can rip DVD, like snowfox dvd ripper for Mac, which can rip the latest copyright protected DVDs on Mac computer.

    MakeMKV works as well, though it turns the resulting files into uncompressed MKV format. It is free. Files can then be converted using Handbrake.

    Mac The Ripper rips folders and files and does not play unless you have VLC

    yeah i have had a few rare problems with handbrake once it was stuck at 100% for a while when i finally canceled it ripped the whole movie and was ripping it again

    example the movie was 2hours

    the m4v file was 3 hours it was the 2 hour movie than after the credits the movie started again so it was ripping it on a loop

    I am using Rip It and Handbrake on 2011 Base Mini, with 8GB works perfect evertime.

    No, this is not a Handbrake problem! It's a DRM aka "defective by design" problem. The final few chapters in a title are set up to throw rippers into a loop.

    I ran into this same problem using Ripit on Cars 2. It would keep going and going and got to about 100 GB on disk before I killed it. I documented my workaround here, using Handbrake.

    If you limit Handbrake to specific titles and chapters it will probably work. But you must first use something like DVD Player to figure out the correct titles and chapters you need.

    Yes, Handbrake plus Subler has some problem when playing (not smooth if I turn on the subtitle). Any ideas?

    Downloaded MTR 4 today (Mac The Ripper 4) and it works GREAT. Just using Toast Titanium 11 to burn the DVDs (making backup DVDs since the baby destroys them).

    RipIt is awesome for converting to other video formats though, especially for iPad. A parents' must for converting kid DVDs for iPad use.
