Converting home made DVD to Quicktime
 
Let's say you wanted to put one of your old imovies on YouTube but you no longer had the project file, in fact the only format the movie existed in was on a DVD you burned it to back when it was made.

Is it possible to make a Quicktime file from the DVD?

Not possible?

entirely possible - but against forum rules to discuss

Discussing the ripping of a DVD of your own content isn't against forum rules.

Try and have a look around Handbrake, iSquint, Visual Hub and ffmpegx for a start.

A few Googles and searches on this forum will get you started.

It sounds like all you would have to do is rip the DVD utilizing something like mac the ripper and convert the video with a video convert. I recommend iskysoft video converter for mac.

Cheers, I will try to download some of those.

You all need to go read the forum rules again and compare that to this post. The form rule clearly states that this case can be discussed openly.

Handbrake is the likely tool to use for the purpose mentioned.

Agree with XStep on both points.

The forum rules state no ripping, copying, ETC of copy protected DVD's because you have to Circumvent the copy protection which is against the law and thus against the forum rules. If it's your own DVD you made from your own content, that is not against the law or rules here at Mac Forums. There is no copy protection to break if it's your own creation.

Handbrake for me it the best tool for what you want to accomplish. Does it right from the DVD in one step.

i have used handbrake and it always takes like 5 or 6 hours to rip a DVD, am I doing something wrong? I'm talking about unprotected DVDs not copyrighted. usually they are like 2 hours long and they take 5 or 6 hours to rip.

On a Mac Pro? My Intel 1.66 Ghz Mini takes maybe 50 minutes per typical DVD.

Since you say they are not copyrighted I will take your word for it, but that time sure sounds wrong then for any modern Mac. Even my old G4 does not take more than 2 hours or so.
