Rip DVDs on OS X and get movies onto your Mac Media server

Whether you have music DVDs, latest fantastic DVD movies and other DVDs, it’s worth your time to make sure that your investment doesn’t become scratched, lost, stolen, or otherwise useless. If you have a collection of DVDs, the last thing you probably want to do is swap them out every time you want to watch something. The solution, of course, is to rip them: to convert them to a digital format the same way you may have done in the past with your audio CDs. Hold on reading...
  


(For the sake of simplicity, I'm going to deal with Blu-ray Discs separately, so the tips I'm giving you are mainly for DVDs specifically.)

Copy protection

As we know, Commercial discs are encrypted to make copying them a little more difficult. The first part of this guide will show you how to bypass that encryption and maintaining original structure without loss, second part is Directly Copy only DVD Main Movie and Leave Out Extras. Thanks to copy protection and encryption on commercially produced DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, this isn't just as easy as popping them in and hitting an "Import DVD" button in iTunes, like it is for audio CDs.

First, it's worth noting that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and most content publishers say that you shouldn't copy, convert, or otherwise mess with the content you buy on DVDs and Blu-ray Discs for any reason.
