    DVD ripping
    Hi All,

    probably a question asked regularly...

    I was at the Genius Bar today, and i saw on the TV screen something about ripping a 4.7gb DVD into a <2gb H.264 file. THe guy at the Genius bar didn't really hep me... so ill ask the question here.

    For copyrights sake, these DVD's are property presentations i have created for clients, which i would like to upload to my AppleTV in my office, of which I dont have the original files on my mac anymore.

    How do i do this??????

    Hope someone can help!!!

    Cheers
    Geoffrey

    I'm sure iMovie also has a way of doing it, but also you can edit the video if you wanted to. If you just wanted to rip a DVD into digital form to move around, this program should do. Also if you do need to encode it to different formats once you've ripped it, you can try HandBrake

    Regards

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    hanbrake will do it and handbrake is free. It will create H.264 mp4s and depending on the length of the DVD you may be able to get it within a gig.
    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)

    The Genius was incorrect if he gave you the impression that the Mac could extract video from a DVD into an iMovie/iTunes acceptable format out of the box.

    You need third-party software to do that part.

    AFTER the DVD's video has been converted to an MP4 file, THEN you can add it to iTunes, sync with AppleTV et al.

    Handbrake has a nice AppleTV preset. So, since the disc isn't copyprotected, it should just be a matter of opening the disc with Handbrake, selecting the AppleTV preset and clicking Start. Once it's all done, just drag it into iTunes and sync.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
