Hi all!

Merry Christmas. I hope it is a great one for you all.

I'm helping a friend with her actor showreel for Christmas and I have one scene which is on a DVD and I downloaded Handbrake to put it into the cut but it said that I needed to download a plug in to take off the security settings, which I did, but now I get this message!

Can anyone help with a step by step way to download a DVD onto a Macbook Pro with Retina into a .mov or mp4 file? It's a pirate protected DVD.

Thank you sooooo much in advance for your help!

There are instructions around here for how to download the necessary library to make Handbrake capable of decoding MOST DVDs, or get a specialized tool like MakeMKV ( that makes keeping up with the copy protection war a priority.

Download the installer package from the videolan website, if you failed to do so initially. If it's still not working please post an activity log for this DVD.
