Q: “I’ve got a DVD that uses the 99-title trick to make it difficult to rip. I used Handbrake to rip the appropriate title and it worked for the most part; the one issue I have is that the video ended up with a 4:3 ratio instead of 16:9 like it should be, and the image isn’t squashed, it’s cropped on the sides. Any suggestions for ripping this video properly?”
Most of users have encountered one or several kinds of issues when ripping DVD with 99 titles with Handbrake, because DVD 99 titles encryption is one of the most complicated encryptions and widely adopted by Disney, Warner Brothers, Paramount, etc. Usually, the movie size of an encrypted DVD with 99 titles is larger than 40 GB and only one title movie that contains the full movie content, others are fragmentary and used to confuse us.
