Best Handbrake Alternative

Handbrake 0.9.9 allows users to rip DVD with 99 titles, and you need VLC 64 bit version installed firstly.

Handbrake ripping 99 titles error solved - tips that may be helpful:

1. Ensure VLC is placed in your root /Applications folder, not your user home folder's ~/Applications folder.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

Tough you go stick with tips above, you may still have variety of Handbrake 64 bit VLC error messages on the Mac OS.
