HELP PLEASE :)

Post by rikster0002 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 8:41 pm

HELLO! I am new to Handbrake / anything of this sort. I downloaded the libdvdcss (I'm using one of the new Macs) and when I ran my first two DVD's threw Handbrake everything went amazing. Now everytime I try to run a DVD threw Handbrake it takes like 8 hours, and often only does the first half of the film. I've been researching but I can't figure out what's wrong - any suggestions?

Rip your DVD’s with makemkv first, then process with HB.

HB isn't a DVD ripper, and libdvdcss is a half-baked hack to make it one. Use something that works, like MakeMKV.
