• 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.

hi guys. I have a question and I'm hoping someone can help. I have a dvd of a concert I did. I want to put it on my MacBook and then separate the 30 minute concert into 5 minute portions (each song I did) into their own file so that I can put them on YouTube, but I'm not sure how to do this or what program to use. is there a tutorial or can someone offer advice? thanks so much!
