• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

DVD to Divx



Wondering if anyone on here would happen to know if there is any type of program that would convert dvd movies into a divx file. I've searched on DVDRhelp.com but couldnt find anything there. I might not be choosing the best codec to use perhaps someone might know a better one like mpeg4 or avi or asf err whatever. i basically want to get the Video_TS folder to be in one movie file thats smaller than 4.7 gigs ?

Thanks in advance


i have the same problem. i downloaded the mac the ripper software that someone recommended. but i dont know if it has divx conversion.
