    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    What are you using to do the capture.

    I'd recommend VLC
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    IS VLC the best software to use for an image grab from a DVD video?
