Looking for an app that will rip and convert DVDs so I can place them in my iTunes. I understand that taking copyright material is illegal but I would only be doing this with the DVDs I own. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm looking for something to bypass the copyright screen rip and convert all in one preferably. Is mac x ripper pro any good?

Thanks

use apps like Ripit or DVD Fab to rip the DVD to your drive and then use Handbrake to convert.

I use MakeMKV and then run the resultant file through Handbrake. I found that running handbrake alone takes longer.

I also use MakeMKV for ripping, both DVD and Blu-ray. Then I transcode them to an iTunes friendly format.

And relax about the illegal status of DVD ripping. Sure, it is illegal in most countries, even if you own a legal copy, but that doesn't mean it's immoral. People generally confuse those two things.
