Rip and copy DVD to VLC on Mac OS X

How to rip and copy DVD to VLC on Mac OS X is an everlasting and hot issue in all relevant digital copy, video conversion forums and bulletins. Backing up DVD to VLC means that you can enjoy your favorite DVD videos on computer conveniently and can protect your physical DVD disc from scratching. That’s why many people choose to transfer DVD to VLC on Mac OS X. Here, this article will show you two methods to play DVD on VLC: Method one, rip DVD with VLC on Mac OS X; Method two, copy DVD to VLC with VLC Alternative on Mac OS X.

Method one: How to rip DVD with VLC Media Player on Mac OS X El Capitan?

VLC is not just a media player. It allows you to rip your DVD as well. Here we will show you how to rip DVD movies with VLC. (Note : This tutorial is written for VLC 0.9.6 and up).
Step 1: Start up VLC on Mac and load up DVD video. Under “Media”, click on “Convert/Save”
Step 2: When Open Media window appears, click DVD tab and browse the Disc device to make sure the field is pointing to the optical drive. Then navigate to “Convert/Save’

Step 3: Next the Convert screen opens where you can select a location for the ripped file.



Step 4: Give the file a name and a supported extension. For this example we ripped Lord of the Rings and gave it a MOV extension. If you don’t label it with a supported file extension it will default to .ps (Program Stream) file.

Step 5: When all settings are done, the Convert screen will look something like this where we have the source drive and destination file with appropriate extension.

Finally, You should be able to play the converted file with other media players assuming you have the right codec.

Using VLC to rip DVD on Mac OS X takes too much time. And you will notice the converted movie in lower quality compared to the original. Also, VLC does not support the DVD with internal encryption so that it can’t recognize protected DVD well and fail to extract movies from DVD successfully. In this case, you have to turn your eyes to VLC Alternative to solve the problem.

Method two: How to copy DVD to VLC with VLC Alternative on Mac OS X El Capitan?
