The weekly Macworld Video returns! Starting this week, Macworld’s editors will provide a helpful video compatible not only with your web browser, but also your iOS device. In this specific video I show you how to use DVD Player to determine which is the correct main title to rip for the DVDs you own. Enjoy.

[Editor’s note: The MPAA and most media companies argue that you can’t legally copy or convert commercial DVDs for any reason. We (and others) think that, if you own a DVD, you should be
able to override its copy protection to make a backup copy or to convert its content for viewing on other devices. Currently, the law isn’t entirely clear one way or the other. So our advice is: If you don’t own it, don’t do it. If you do own it, think before you rip.]
I discuss two utilities in this video.
HandBrake and VLC. Go get ’em. DVD Player can be found in your Mac’s Applications folder.
