Q: My 3-year-old boy loves the movie Wreck-It Ralph produced by Walt Disney. But one big concern would be whether such commercial DVD (maybe kinda out of copy right protection) can be copied and backed up to prevent from the kid's careless wreck?
Analysis: For general home-made DVDs, Handbrake, a famous open-sourced video transcode program, is a free solution mainly to convert DVD to MPEG4 format compatible with most Apple and some Android devices. The output formats and profiles are somewhat too limited to meet different users' needs. In addition, Handbrake is more suitable for advanced users for it requires lots of manual settings. But neither of them is the main concern of it as a totally free home-use tool.
Honestly however, the biggest obstacle of Handbrake is the lack of ability to cope with commercial and more specifically, copy-protected DVDs. So it is not at all surprising if you fail to Handbrake rip DVD like Wreck-It Ralph, which is strongly encrypted by Disney, the releaser and distributer.
Wreck-It Ralph, the animated family-action comedy, is the 52nd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. However, Disney owns by far the strongest DVD encryption trick called X-project DRM. It is almost the most sophisticated copy protection at present. To copy and back up DVD Wreck-It Ralph, you need find an almighty Handbrake alternative capable of removing such codes.
