Below we will show you the method to rip DVD with Handbrake 1.0.0 to iPhone / iPad

Install Handbrake 1.0.0

On Windows, you can download the Libdvdcss file separately (here for 32-bit systems and here for 64-bit systems), leave the filename as libdvdcss-2.dll, and put it in your Handbrake program folder (C:\Program Files\Handbrake).

If you’re on a Mac, download this file and double-click to install it. For Mac users who runs OS X El Capitan, there will be a few more steps to install libdvdcss on El Capitan. The main reason is that the SIP (Sytem Integrity Protection), a security feature on Mac OS X El Capitan is designed to protect critical system files and processes. Unfornately, SIP removes the libdvdcss file that Handbrake needs in order to work. You could disable SIP or use the following complicated way to install libdvdcss on El Capitan.
1. Close Handbrake, and open a new Finder window.
2. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /Library/SystemMigration/History
3. Inside this folder should be a folder named “Migration-[random letters and numbers].” Open that folder and you’ll find “QuarantineRoot.” Open that folder, and you should see yourlibdvdcss.2.dylib file.
4. Open a second Finder window.
5. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /usr/local/lib (If you get an error saying this folder doesn’t exist, go to /usr/local instead, create a new folder called “lib”m and open it.
6. Drag and drop the libdvdcss.2.dylib file from the first window into the /usr/local/lib folder. You should be prompted for your admin password. Type that in and wait for the copy to finish.

Additional: Best Handbrake Alternative to Rip DVD to Any Video Format and Any Device

While, most DVD movies come with digital copies, with a clean conscience you get the copy that you believe is yours to own. Problem is, Handbrake cannot rip protected DVD discs as we’ve mentioned above.

To rip encrypted DVD with Handbrake, you need to use a program to crack the DVD copy protection first with a third-party tool. If you want to rip a pile of commercial Blu-rays without any copy protection and video format limit, go to the alternative solution.

The best handbrake alternative for ripping Blu-ray movies we can recommend is Brorsoft DVD Ripper.

As DVD Ripper

A DVD ripper is usually used for copying the audio and video content of a DVD to a file encoded in AVI, MP4, MPEG, WMV or other video formats. The ripped file saves in a hard disk or other media device for further editing, backup, sharing or playback without the need to load a DVD.

Brorsoft has the most powerful crack technology. Both HD DVDs and standard DVDs can be ripped to all popular SD and HD (3D) video formats like 4K/1080P/720P H.264/H.265 MP4MOVMKV, M4V, WMV, FLV, AVI, 3GP,MPEG and more.

As DVD Copier

Now that, like all physical things, DVD discs are prone to damage or loss. Then you have to rebuy your movies or go without them – both are a waste of money.
