    After installing 10.11 I noticed I can no longer rip my (legally) owned DVDs using Handbrake to get them on my iPad, it turns out the 10.11 upgrade deleted the libdvdcss.2.dylib needed to decrypted the CSS. No problem I thought, I'll just reinstall it, but the installer wouldn't work.

    OK, so I'll manually put it into the /usr/lib folder using the sudo command but that won't work either. I'm sure I'm doing it right but its just not letting me, it gives me "Operation Not Permitted" - see below, and yes before anyone asks the libdvdcss.2.dylib is in the downloads folder!

    sudo cp ~/Downloads/libdvdcss.2.dylib /usr/lib/
    Password:
    cp: /usr/lib/libdvdcss.2.dylib: Operation not permitted​

    If there is anyone with far greater knowledge of this than me that can help, I'll be eternally grateful. Is this to do with the 'Rootless" feature implemented in OS X 10.11?

    Many thanks,

    Disable rootless, and you should be good to go.

    Turned off Rootless (booted into recovery mode (Command-R when booting) and disabled System Integrity Check) now working fine. Thank you.

    Third-party libraries should go into /usr/local/lib. Thats what the local tree is for.

    Disabling rootless is not a great solution from a security perspective. I've found Ripit http://thelittleappfactory.com/ripit/ works fine for ripping DVD's. It doesn't seem to need the libdvdcss library.
