DVDs are a main source of Movies for many of us. DVDs are handy as you can watch them anytime you want. But the problem is you will need a DVD ROM or DVD player to watch them. What if you want to watch them on your handheld devices? What if you want to keep them on your Mac and edit them? How do you do that?

There are a number of obstacles in doing so. First of all the video format that DVDs use is not supported in handheld devices. DVDs use VOB format. VOB is the acronym for Video Objects. This format is popular for DVDs but is unpopular otherwise. If you just copy the contents of the DVD into your handheld, you will not be able to play them. Many applications do not support VOB for editing as well.

Another problem is the DRM protection. DRM stands for Digital Rights Management. DRM is any technique that tries to stop copyright infringement of the digital contents such as videos, audios, software, games, applications, apps etc. The DRM system is limited in its actions as it cannot differ between a legal owner and an illegal user. It got no way of stopping the actions of an illegal user. Therefore, it stops certain actions altogether for both kind of users. That is just very frustrating, but that is the way it is. So, if you purchase the DVD with your money, you will not be able to copy the DVD contents for DRM. You will not be able to do anything with it except watching them. So, whatever you wish to do, you have to remove the DRM first.

There are different types of DRM. There are CSS encryptions, Region Code Enhanced protections etc. They must be removed first in order to work with the DVD contents. Some may think this as illegal, but you ought it with your own money. You should be able to do whatever you want with it as long you are not mass distributing it.

All those problems can be solved with a DVD ripper. A DVD ripper rips videos out of a DVD. It searches a DVD and shows all the titles it could find. Then it can rip and convert a particular title or a portion of a title or the movie as a whole as per instruction. It can keep the subtitles as well. This all depends on how good the ripper is. Some ripper may degrade the video quality while ripping it. Some may not be able to remove the DRM and therefore it will not be able to do anything.

Mac the Ripper is a quality DVD ripper that can remove any kind of DRM protection. It is supported in Snow Leopard and Lion. The best thing is that it is free. It is a great tool to have by you. If you are equipped with this then you can start to rip all your DVDs. It gives you total control over your DVDs and with it you can just ignore those DRM and make the most out of your DVDs.
