How to Rip DVDs with HandBrake DVD Ripper

Add DVD source

Step 1. Open the HandBrake downloads page and download and install the right version for your computer:

Step 2. If you only need to rip home-made DVDs, you can skip the step. Or you need to install libdvdcss, a free software library for decrypting DVD CSS protection that will make Handbrake rip DVD with copy-protection available.

Windows users check out the step-by-step guide to install libdvdcss on Windows.

MAC users download this file and double-click to install it:

However, if you’re using OS X El Capitan, the libdvdcss file will be removed by SIP that is a security feature on El Capitan. Two methods are useful to deal with this problem: You can choose to disable SIP or install a command-line tool like Homebrew.

Choose the presets

Step 3. Insert DVD disc to DVD-ROM of computer and then launch HandBrake DVD ripper.

Step 4. Choose the DVD drive from the left sidebar as the picture shows.

Step 5. It may take a few minutes to load the DVD. After the process has finished, move to the “Title” drop-list in the upper left of the window and choose the parts you want to rip. Usually, we select the longest title because it’s the main movie we will watch.

Step 6. Click the “Browse” button on the lower right corner to specify an output path and rename the output movie. Optionally, you can go to the Preset section to choose a needed resolution, and related parameters based on your own devices.

Some people may think it’s complicated to let handbrake rip DVD but with some familiarity, you will find it’s pretty easy to complete the entire operation. On the other hand, HandBrake has some insuperable flaws. You must install libdvdcss to remove CSS DVD copy protection but the plug-in can’t deal with the latest DVD copy protections. Moreover, some common HandBrake DVD ripper errors, such as HandBrake no valid source found, HandBrake not working, HandBrake audio sync issue are irritating.
