I have a burt DVD which i made a few years ago. I want to take some of the video files off the dvd to use in a portfolio. I dont know how to go about this, in the dvd contents in Finder there is an AUDIO_TS and a VIDEO+TS file and lots of other files inside them. Am i going about it in the right way or should i get some screen recording software and use that?
QUOTE Thanks

From your description, this is a DVD you made (I assume with video content you edited/shot/etc.) - with no copy protection, it's easy - download a free program called Handbrake, and you can use that to rip the video to a file (like .mov or .mp4, etc.)

It's really easy to use, but will not work on dvds with copyprotection / encryption
