    • Video Conversion Made “Easy” for iOS Allison Sheridan November 2012 http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 1

    • Do an Ethics Check Is it legal to rip your legally owned DVDs to your iPad? Yes, and No The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA U.S.) says it’s illegal to create and distribute the software to circumvent copy protection on DVDs But Judges have ruled that it’s not illegal to back up your DVDs or move the content to an iOS device Oddly the Audio Home Recording Act which amends U.S. Copyright law does make it legal to rip audio Fair Use argument doesn’t explicitly allow DVD ripping You decide... http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 3
    • Terminology Rip: Copying the contents of a CD (e.g. a song) or DVD (e.g. a movie) to a computer so you can listen/view Burn: Copying a file (can be data, song or video) from your computer to a CD or DVD Encode/Transcode: to take a video/audio file and convert it to a different format, e.g. uncompressed wav file to mp3, or DVD vob file to mp4 Compress: to remove information the human ear/eye can’t perceive in order to shrink the file size - may reduce quality Digital Download: Digital copy of a DVD/CD made available by the publisher to download from the internet or copy from the DVD to your computer for viewing/listening http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 4
    • What’s Wrong with Digital Downloads? Movie companies put so many restrictions that they often won’t work on the device(s) you have Often can only have one copy (choose between computer and iPad) Often have EXPIRATION dates! What’s that even MEAN? Bought this Sony DVD in Dec 2011, expired Dec 2010! http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 5

    • High Definition Copy Protection D8: All Things Digital, June 2010 http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 6
    • DVD Ripping Applications Because of the DMCA all surviving DVD ripping applications are free - if they charge, they’re shut down So beware of paid-for DVD ripping applications Our preferred freeware DVD ripping application is HandBrake from handbrake.fr Open Source (Licensed under the GPL) Cross-platform Mac, Linux and Windoze Works up through Mountain Lion Requires a separate library to remove the copy protection (complex to explain, easy to install) Handbrake takes advantage of multi-core computers http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 7
    • Things to Think About Make sure you have sufficient disk space Ripped DVDs will take up a few GB on your drive Capture tools like Handbrake will encode and compress the video Compression will be by a factor of 5 or more Wallace and Gromit compressed from 6 GB to 1GB for 3 short movies http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 8
    • What about Ripping Blu-Ray? Steve Jobs in 2008: “Blu-ray is a bag of hurt” He was right No Mac has a Blu-ray player/burner preinstalled Apple says they never will Need to buy a Blu-ray burner - compatible with the Mac Applications to capture Blu-Ray are more limited, no many good/free tools Process is more complicated, REALLY time consuming and expensive These are not the Droids you’re looking for... http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 9
    • Let’s Rip! Load your DVD into your Mac’s DVD slot We’ll use Wallace and Gromit as the demo Usually the DVD Player application will auto-launch the movie, go ahead and quit the application I know it’s hard, but stop watching the movie http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 10
    • Choose the Source Open Handbrake and click on Source http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 11
    • Choose Your DVD Navigate to and open your DVD You should see at least one VIDEO_TS folder Click the Open button http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 12
    • Handbrake Scans the Source Be patient as Handbrake begins to scan the new source http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 13
    • Scanning...and Scanning Should start to show you how many titles it’s found http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 14
    • Done Scanning! After scanning is complete, Handbrake will show the duration of each chapter (called title) in the movie http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 15
    • It Gets a Little Tricky Here DVDs often have a lot of different “titles” on them Main feature Alternate endings Director’s cut Director’s commentary Trailers Cutting room floor Even the menus are considered a title We’re going to have to decipher which we want to rip and move to our iOS device http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 16
    • Example with Wallace and Gromit In Wallace and Gromit there are three main features plus a whole bunch of other stuff Using clever deduction, we can assume the longest ones are the main features Title 1 - 22m 42s “The Wrong Trousers” Title 2 - 28m 51s “A Grand Day Out” Title 3 - 29m 52s “A Close Shave” (our favorite) Titles 4 – 25 - (DVD menus and bonus material) http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 17
    • But Which One Should I Rip? This is entirely up to you If you’re like me, you want the smallest possible file so you don’t fill up your iOS device so I just do the main feature If you’re a crazy movie nut, you may want ALL the features http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 18
    • Renaming the Files We’ll queue up ripping of the three main features in Wallace and Gromit HandBrake auto-create a name for the output video file Based on the name of the DVD If you’re queuing more than one Title, change the name or the output file and/or its destination by selecting the browse button http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 19
    • Renaming the File First feature is called “The Wrong Trousers” Renaming the file and putting it on the desktop http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 20
    • Add to Queue We want to rip all three features at once So we can go have a cocktail while our Mac works After naming the file Click on Add to Queue You can Show Queue to see each of the files when they’re ready to rip...but don’t start yet! http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 21
    • Choosing Presets In the “old days” it was a lot of work to figure out what dimensions and compression you should use for your devices Now you just pick your device from a the Presets menu! Output settings will all be adjusted to optimize the video for your device http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 22
    • Don’t Touch the Settings You can manually adjust the video output settings, but do this only if you know what you’re doing And you have too much time on your hands http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 23
    • Now You Can Let ‘er Rip Handbrake will scan again, then start encoding Watch % Encoding progress Watch ETA Sit back, relax, and go get that cocktail! http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 24
    • Movies are Ripped! http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 25
    • Transfer Movie to iTunes Find your movie where you told Handbrake to put it Drag the movie into your iTunes Library iTunes will put it in Movies automatically http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 26
    • Sync to iDevice Plug in your iDevice and select it in the left sidebar Select the Movies tab Check the box for Sync Movies Might want to UNcheck auto inclusion of all moves for space reasons Check the box next to the movie you just pulled in Sync your iDevice and be happy http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 27
    • Delete the Original Dragging the movie into iTunes from your hard drive will put a copy in your Movies folder on your Disk Might want to verify it’s there - look in ~/Music/iTunes 2012/iTunes Media/Movies It’s now safe to delete the original to save disk space http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 28
    • Or... You could just buy your movies through iTunes http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 29
    • Links and Thanks Handbrake is free from handbrake.fr Many thanks to Steve Sheridan for working out the workflow on ripping DVDs And writing up most of the notes! http://podfeet.comSunday, November 25, 12 30
