Hi everyone, I'm new to Macs and have a question in hopes to be answered. If I have a DVD movie and want to add it to my iTunes collection...what is the process and what Programs do I need to successfully copy the movie from a disc to iTunes.

you can use Handbrake to rip un copy protected movies to itunes.

for copy protected movies, you are gonna have to scour the darker side of the web, as we arent allowed to discuss here.

If you find a post helpful, don't forget to use the reputation system (top right of post.)

Handbrake as their own forum and a wiki with instructions. Go look at their site and you will find all you need.

also, there is a cool little utility out there called "identify" that will put the video cover poster frame on the movie, (album art) and all the other bits and pieces that go into the video tag data - movie rating, actors, directors, plot summary, etc etc from the IMDB website, and changed the mp4 to a m4v file, so you can drag it straight into itunes and it appears in your library.

If you have other video files, such as .avi, .mkv, etc then I suggest downloading the free app from the App Store called Miro Video Converter. It will convert anything you have to be compatible with any device you have.

Don't forget the +reputation button on the left!
