Best Mac OS X DVD Ripper

So handbrake will rip dvds and encode them, but what if they are protected? Is there any application out there which will remove any digital rights protection?

What are others prefered methods for backing up a dvd library to mac? Please include what software packages you use for reading, ripping, encoding, or playback.

VLC provides the libraries for Handbrake to decrypt protected DVDs. (So you don't have to use MacTheRipper first)

For copy protected dvds, do this :

1, Use MacTheRipper to remove the protection.

  1. Use Handbrake to encode.

Handbrake is the best software now for DVD-movie ripping. Playback, just use Quicktime w/ Perian, Nice Player, or VLC.
