Topic: DVD Backup Help!

I just got all those DVD's "with" the Courier Mail and I am trying to backup them all to a USB stick with a smaller filesize. I'm sick of buying DVD's only to have the kids kill them with scratches within a week. I've tried VLC and it didn't work. Google led me to Handbrake and that didn't work(copy was blocky). I put some ESS codec/dll in the Handbrake folder and that still didn't work(still blocky).

I don't mind purchasing something easy to use as it will still save me in the long run.

I'm trying to stay away from a 1:1 copy @ 4gig a piece.

What file exactly? From what i recall if you need to add anything manually it's a libdvdcss DLL, but that should be it.

What preset did you use? Sure it wasn't accidentally just a low-quality preset?

I haven't ripped a DVD for years but one neat thing about Handbrake is you can limit the encode to only a few seconds, so you can test settings quickly to see if they're working.

Yeah it was the libdvdcss DLL. I'm testing the smaller files to save time.

I've tried fast_480p30
and fast_576p25

Download a DVD ripper like https://www.winxdvd.com/dvd-ripper/

You can use the trail of it and just uninstall it after you finished with it. or message me for a non-legit copy.

Why not torrent the dvds you have? Or are they fairly rare?

With everything being logged these days I'd rather do it locally, Big Brother is watching. Haven't read any EULA's but it's probably not kosher.

Fast is low quality, try a higher quality one, even the high quality ones are still compressed and aren't 1:1

I've had to resort to using a WinXDVDCopyPro trial to convert from DVD to mpeg 2 and then back to Hanbrake to smallen the mpeg2 to a mp4. This 2 stage process is time consuming and a burden. I wish Handbrake would just work for me.

Tried higher qualities to no avail. Hanbrake just wont decrypt properly. I thought it might be a 32/64 bit issue with the libdvdcss DLL. Might be my early edition Blu ray player stuffing things up or even an AMD issue?

Yeah, for like 15 years now the recipe has always been dvd ripping software to remove copy protection, and then follow up with conversion from raw mpeg-2 files to a neat compressed video file.

Back in the day, DVD Shrink + Dr Divx was a popular combo.

The last time I did it, about 5 years ago, i think I used DVD Fab Decrypter and Handbrake.

it's still technically illegal to rip DVDs though, so if you're going to break laws anyway you might as well do it in the most convenient way possible

I remember DVD Fab, I am surprised I did not remember it before. For video converting in general, I use Xilisoft

Again, Message me for more info on that if you want.

Use poweriso to create an iso of the dvd then use the virtual drive to mount the image and play it

But that's piracy anonymousxvi, and in your previous threads you've spoken out against piracy.

Geez y'all kinda suck at this.

MakeMKV to rip a DVD/BR and losslessly transfer the video to an MKV container, then Handbrake to re-encode if desired.

Actually it's illegal to do so. Music CD's are actually legal to do so as they have no encryption.

You don't have to bypass encryption with poweiso

Yawn, this urban myth again? Sigh. Encryption, 'backups', and the number of topies - all this has no influence on whether or not it's permissable in Australia. The relevant details relate for format shifting and reasonable use.
