Ripping DVD with Handbrake under Mac(El Capitan, Yosemite)

Summary: If you are looking for a definite answer- can Handbrake rip DVD movies on Mac, here you will get the answer and learn how to rip DVD on Mac free with Handbrake.

Ripping digital copies of your DVDs so you can take them on the road, play them on any device you want, or drop them on your home theater has never been easier. There are a number of great free and paid applications that can make the process one-click. In this article, we will share a complete guide how to rip DVD on Mac free with Handbrake. Just learn the step-by-step tutorial.

Tutorial: How to use Handbrake to rip DVDs on Mac

Step one: Install the software

To rip a DVD with HandBrake, you need to download the free software.

Step Two: Select a Source

Open Handbrake and you’ll be asked to locate a source. Choose a DVD, DVD image, or a VIDEO_TS folder. You can also choose pretty much any video file, too, as Handbrake will convert standard video files as well.

Tip: Want to make sure you’ve chosen the right title before you start encoding? Pick the one you think you want, then click the Preview Window button and a new window opens up. From there you can scroll through ten still images from the title or, if that’s not good enough, choose to encode and watch 15 to 240 seconds of the title (in 15-second increments).

Step Three: Choose a preset

Now that you’ve decided which title(s) to rip, you need to choose your encoding settings based on the device(s) on which you plan to view the content. Although you can tweak every aspect of encoding, HandBrake includes handy presets that make it much easier. Generally speaking, I advise using them.

If the Presets Drawer isn’t already open, click the Toggle Presets button at the top of the HandBrake window (or press Command-T). In the drawer, you’ll see two types of presets: Devices and Regular. In most cases, you can just focus on the Device ssection. There you’ll find options for Universal, iPod, iPhone & iPod touch, iPad, AppleTV, AppleTV 2, AppleTV 3, Android, and Android Tablet.

Step Four: Tweak your settings

Next you need to decide how high (or low) you want the quality of your ripped content to be. In the video panel, you can drag the Constant Quality slider from left to right to adjust the quality. (Right is higher, left is lower.) Alternatively you can set an average bit rate or use a Handbrake preset for a specific device. Once you’ve chosen your video settings, click the audio tab and make your audio choices. For the most part you can leave this alone, but this section is where you’ll set things like the audio language of your ripped content. Y

Step Five: Start Ripping

Now that you’ve got all your settings in Handbrake you can go ahead and rip that DVD. If you’re only ripping a single file, press the Start button up top. If you want to batch-rip more content, click the Add to Queue button (also up top) and repeat this process for the addition content. Once you’ve got it all in your queue, go ahead and press the Start button.

Editor’s Note: The latest version of Handbrake works on Macs running OS X 10.6 or later including 10.11. But HandBrake doesn’t include the software needed to decrypt commercial DVDs. To rip and convert copy-protected DVDs on Mac OS X, you’d better seek for a more professional DVD ripper for Mac OS X.

Best Handbrake Alternative to Rip DVD on Mac OS X

The best handbrake alternative for ripping Blu-ray movies we can recommend is Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac.

This tool is especially made for DVD ripping, conversion and backup under Mac OS X including El Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion, etc. And it takes everything from the DVD, including the chapters, extras, and subtitles.
