Handbrake Walk Through for Ripping a DVD

Download Handbrake directly from
http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php
for whatever operating system you are using

Quick Walkthru for ripping with Handbrake:
put in dvd
open Handbrake
click on *Source*s

choose dvd

wait while Handbrake scans the titles

choose a title # to rip

choose a destination file location
Browse to choose the ripped title destination file location,
Option: create a new folder for the ripped file(s)

select MP4 under Output Settings

also edit the destination file format extension to (dot).mp4 if it reads (dot).m4v, especially if you want sites like Wellvideo to identify the video file as MP4

click the Green Start button

when done it will say *Queue Finished* on bottom of screen and Start button will be Green again
you can then select another title and so on

If you get a distorted video when trying to open a video file with Windows Media Player, it may be mkv format instead of MP4.  Try playing it on the VLC media player instead.

If Handbrake will not open the Source DVD title you want, try using opening the File (VTS) instead of the DVD as your source. If still stubborn, use Shrink to produce the VTS files then use Handbrake on those VTS files.  For more info: http://neverendingplateau.blogspot.com/2015/01/ripping-vts-files.html

Note: WellVideo sometimes does not accept MP4 files produced by Handbrake.  Be sure you change the name of the file extension to (dot).mp4 if it reads (dot).m4v on the destination file name
