    I am currently looking for a solution to my woes.

    I am looking to rip a DVD onto my Mac so that I can play it on my iPad.

    Any suggestions?

    I currently have handbrake but is having troubles with encryption. Maybe there is another alternative?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think it's free to try - I liked it, so I bought it.

    I forget the message that pops up. Something about 32 and 64 bit versions. But it's saying to download a file called libdvdss.pkg (I think that's the name spelling might be a little off) in order to rip a DVD that I have. After googling it, come to find out that it's required for encrypted disks when using handbrake. Call me paranoid but I don't like to just "download a random file" off the Internet. So I thought I would hit the forums.

    How much was it? I don't mind paying, I just don't want to pay a ton.

    I was disappointed when Handbrake went south for Lion, it's integration wih VLC was ruined and eliminated awesome features like ripping right from Handbrake. I still use HB for converting, it works fine for that. I can't remember the DVD ripping program I use, but it was free and works awesome-I'll have to update this post when I get home and let you know what it is.

    Here's a patch for VLC 2.0 and Handbrake...
