    Given that this forum follows the laws of the US, and what you're asking about is illegal there, I doubt you'll get an answer. We're a bit more free here in Canada.

    Actually he's said nothing illegal, he never mentioned they're commercial DVDs, just his movies, which could be home movies or other non-copyrighted material. You can infer into what he says, but we choose to give the benefit of the doubt until actually stated otherwise.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    Handbrake: HandBrake - will rip non-encrypted DVDs and will take many file formats as an input (including mts) and convert to mp4, m4v or mkv - free

    mpegstreamclip: Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac and Windows - converts from/to a wide variety of formats - free

    .wma and .wmv *may* cause problems. To convert (at least the wmv) with mpegstreamclip I *think* you need the paid flip4mac version that supports converting wmv files (the free version only supports playback)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    I used to use "Prism Video Converter" software. It is available for free on the internet. It is amazing program. You can choose any format you like. Actually, it is also compressing the video files in the same time. It is very effective.
