Method 1. Install VLC to Help HandBrake Rip 99-title DVDs – Only Rip Vey Few DVDs

It is said that HandBrake 0.9.9 and later allow users to rip DVD with 99 titles, but you need to install VLC first which contains libdvdcss CSS decryption capacity that can help HandBrake rip CSS-protected DVDs. But, you should notice the following tips.

  • Update HandBrake to the latest version to get more bugs fixed and performance improved.
  • Ensure VLC is placed in your "root /Applications" folder, not your user home folder's ~/Applications folder.
  • VLC must be launched once after being downloaded and installed, for the system to give it permission to operate. Double-click it and click "Okay" to the warning message about it being downloaded software. Once it launches, feel free to quit it.
  • The "bitness" of VLC must match the "bitness" of HandBrake. This means 32-bit HandBrake only works with 32-bit VLC, and 64-bit HandBrake only works with 64-bit VLC. If you cannot find a 64-bit build of VLC (sometimes they break it), you can still read DVDs by mounting them with the application FairMount before opening them with HandBrake.
  • If you are using a PPC (G4 or G5) mac, you need to use the "Universal Binary" of VLC. The 32bit PPC Binary will not work.
