Q: I have been using handbrake for a while, and it has worked fine for most DVD's I have ripped. But when I selected my DVD drive as the source for HandBrake I got an error (HandBrake quitted unexpectedly). So I used a third-party program to copy the disk to my desktop. I still got the error when I selected the Video_TS folder as my source. The displayed Crashed Thread was 7. I don't get it. Any solution for such HandBrake quitting problem? And I’m using MacBook Pro running Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11).

Why Does HandBrake Quit Unexpectedly?

Generally, HandBrake (latest 1.0.7), compatible with Mac OS X 10.6-10.12, works fine in decoding non-commercial DVDs. Because they simply have no complicated DVD copy protection technologies embedded for anti-piracy purpose. However, some copy-protected DVDs are added with a bunch of redundant data in, for example, DVD with 99 titles, causing the failure in loading movie and finding the right title.

The toughest one is Disney X-project DRM which has been frequently applied in latest movie DVDs. So when you try using to rip DVD Trolls, Finding Dory, X-Men: Apocalypse, Captain America: Civil War or so with HandBrake on Mac OS, you may encounter the problem like HandBrake quitting unexpectedly.

In other cases occasionally, HandBrake does not really quit at 100% point of conversion, but isn't displaying the last step(s) it needs to finish before the conversion is completed.
