    Exclamation Ripping/Combining DVD Problem - New to Mac pls help!!!
    HI All,

    I have just made the change from PC to Mac and am currently having a few problems any help on the below would be great - ideally in as basic format as possible pls.

    Right so i want to rip a number of my DVDs to my Macbook's hard drive. I have read the Mactheripper is a good program for this so downloaded it and followed the instructions.

    Upon completion i now have a saved file which contains 2 other files titled Audio_TS and Video_TS.

    Now Audio TS has nothing in it and Video TS has a number of files in it. There are two types of files the majority of which have the VLC media player symbol so i assume are video files and most can be played (from looking at these in short they look like the various parts/chapters of the DVD) the other files just have a white piece of paper type symbol and are either .BUP or .IFO files.

    Basically the first thing i want to do is combine these files so they can be played as 1 video file without the need to select a separate file for each section of the DVD.

    Any help with this would be great....

    Thanks in advance

    Mark

    There is no need to combine anything.

    Open VLC - in the 'File' menu select 'Open Disc...'

    The new window should be on the 'Disc' tab

    Place a dot next to 'VIDEO_TS folder', then click the browse button and browse to the folder you wish to play.

    And FYI before the discussion heads in the wrong direction: We follow U.S. law which makes it illegal to break the encryption found on most commercial DVDs. So any discussion related to ripping these DVDs is not allowed here.

    I still dont understand how this will allow me to use this ripped DVD as one video file.

    At present i have multiple video files that require me to open each on seprately. Is it not possible to combine these into 1 video file for continuous viewing??

    Because VLC knows what to do with them if you tell it what you're doing.

    Just try it and you'll see.

    When you go to browse, just have VLC open the VIDEO-TS folder, not the files inside.
