Jeremy - I am a Mac user. Handbrake successfully rips my dvds. The problem I get is the playback of the ripped file. I get sound but picture is completely distorted. Not sure what's causing this. I've tried numerous options for ripping the dvd and the same outcome everytime.
Hotpot - when I played back the encoded dvd, all of the chapters were out of order. Everything else was great, picture, sound, etc. is there a way to rearrange the chapters so they are in sequential order?
Alwoa - Handbrake is very popular, I can see it on many website, and this is benefit from free. On the other hand, it is difficult to use for beginner, lack support and weak stability.
If you have the same problem as they do, why not think about another app which is more suitable for you? DVD Ripper for Mac has much easier interface, more output formats for more video editors and portable players (such as iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Blackberry, iMovie, QuickTime, etc.), and better performance for both senior users and beginners. Just try!
