    If we're talking DVD movies then MakeMKV is a great resource if it's encrypted. It reminds me to a degree of another tool I used way back called RipIt4Me. I then would follow up with Devede, if need be, to finish the project.

    You can of course do it all with VLC. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1908719&postcount=4

    I also like Handbrake. Sometimes I find that the ripped m4v (mp4) will not be accepted by DeVeDe. When that happens I use Avidemux and change audio to mp3 as it is usually a sound issue. Then no problems with making an .iso with DeVeDe.
    Those are the three tools I use and I am happy with them.

    My wife wanted me to make a copy of a Tai Chi dvd she ordered from Amazon, but, to my surprise, this thing had encryption on it. I tried MakeMKV but it didn't include the menus. I tried DVDrip...not what I was looking for. I even tried VLC to copy it but failed. I eventually tried K9Copy and it did great. Exactly what I was looking for. It decrypted the DVD and made an iso. The down side was its size (a 200 mbs download). But, there is a lite version of it called backlite. It even has a ppa....

    The good news, it's only a 50mb download (which includes its dependencies). It works very well.

    Over the weekend I landed up with a region 1 DVD from our local library. So, I could either pay Trespasser a visit and watch it in his TV room, or I could use Handbrake or VLC to ignore the code and play it right here in region 2 :D
    After a careful calculation of the travel costs including a small token of appreciation for being a burden on the Trespasser household, I decided to rip it here. :)

    Aw shucks! And I was so looking forward to you and the misses visiting. :D . Seriously though, changing a DVD from one region to another was a real pain. I finally had to re-image my Desktop with Windows 7 and use ConverXtoDVD to accomplish this task.
