How to Solve - This Version of Handbrake is 64, VLC Found but Not 64

Handbrake has updated to version 1.0.7. Besides more than 1000 brand new or improved features, it now allows easy 64-bit builds, which tends to perform approximately 10% better than their 32-bit brethren.

Nonetheless, if you need to rip encrypted DVDs, it requires a 64-bit version of VLC to be installed, and previous VLC just has 32-bit version. After you updated HandBrake to 64 bits build, you will get a message says: "This version of handbrake is 64 bit, VLC found but not 64 bit!" Don't "Attempt Scan Anyway", since it will crash both your HandBrake and your Mac. Go "Get 64 bit VLC" and get it installed. However, even though you follow instructions above with care, you will still receive this disturbing message time after time - "This version of handbrake is 64 bit, VLC found but not 64 bit!"

Note: VLC currently supports Windows 64-bit. You can free download VLC 64-bit for PC now!!!

WinX DVD Ripper for Mac is a solid solution for those who want to make backup DVD copies of their protected DVDs. - Dennis (Macsimum News Editor)

Before working this issue out, we need to understand why it will arouse this trouble. Firstly, the motivation of HandBrake do not natively support encrypted DVDs is that, they want to avoid a few legal issues (in fact it is fair legal to backup your own DVDs). Then they omit the key point of ripping copy protected DVDs on purpose - libdvdcss, a CSS library that allows protected DVDs to be read. Handbrake, rather than containing its own version of libdvdcss requires you to have VLC installed instead. The problem with this arrangement is that you need both applications to be compiled for the same CPU. 64-bit Handbrake requires a 64-bit VLC with a 64-bit libdvdcss inside, and the latest version of VLC, 1.0.7, is 32-bit only. Libdvdcss is also 32-bit only as can be seen here.
