As a new Mac user that hasn't looked back, the only piece of software I'm struggling to find (that I used on my PC) is a DVD Ripper that would automatically rip DVD's to chapters on my desktop in VOB (etc) format with the tick of a box. I used Slysoft software on the PC and CloneDVD ripped to chapters at the tick of a button. I think Mac the Ripper does it one chapter at a time, which is very time consuming and can get confusing for Elgato to convert straight after. Does. anybody have any other suggestions for me?

Hope you're not talking about ripping copywritten DVDs.

No - sorry, wasn't clear about that. These are DVD's of my band that have been professionally created with menus etc. Want to full gigs onto my iphone and also Apple TV but split them into Chapters before converting them so that I don't have to scroll through the whole concert and can view song by song.

You'll need to use something like iMovie to break them into chapters. If they're not copy protected, a ripper is not needed. Just copy the .VOB files right off the disc. You'll want to use something like Handbrake to convert them to H.264 (I'd use the AppleTV preset):

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!

Haven't tried iMovie yet - I'll give that a try. Many thanks.
