    Anyone know of an easy and preferrably free way to rip a DVD to my Mac? I've a presentation next week and it would make life so much easier if I could just show the videos from their appropriate files instead of faffing around with a DVD player. I'm a complete noob to such things so any help would be ace.

    Cheers.

    Also interested in this. I know it is possible but most programs are hard to use.. If I'm not mistaken mplayer has something built in to encode dvd files to divx. But its not that easy to use (just like mplayer).

    Good luck, update on what you found was the best software app for this.

    Asked a mac-minded frieand. He suggested HandBrake and Mac the Ripper aswell. But also claimed that there are many other tools out there for this job.. so he pointed me to google lol. Try those to apps out, if they are so popular, I'm sure they should be up for the job!

    Good luck,

    Hand brake is a really easy program to use and works with most DVDs. We use it to rip dvds for our video ipods at work. much faster then quicktime pro :/
