I have exactly the same problem. I just did a clear install of Mojave, and then installed Handbrake 1.1.2

In the case of the original poster, your third-party decryption add-on is having issues reading the disk. One of the reasons the 3PL isn't supported here is that too many things cause it to fail... Like dirty disks, encryption or menu commands that aren't supported, or the fact that updating your operating system can break the linkage.

This is why using actually, designed-and-supported-for-ripping-encrypted-disks software like MakeMKV, AnyDVD, and similar are the recommended way to get video off the encrypted optical media, and onto your computer where handbrake can handle the rest.

To fournine, if it worked before, you've probably experienced the "broke by updating the operating system" problem above. Answer is the same: Use ripping software to rip disks, encoding software (like handbrake) to encode the video after it's ripped. But, that's just a guess, because you didn't provide any clues other than "it's broke", like the OP did.
