I want to convert my DVDs to MP4-files. I know a Software that can convert unprotected files, but I have many DVDs which are protected. Does anyone know a good Freeware?

I already tried HandBrake and many others but None of them works.

  • On what Os should that software run?

  • Handbrake should work, all it needs is a plugin to read the protected files.

I use MakeMKV - currently free while in Beta, and likely will be for quite some time.

You can subsequently use Handbrake to compress the resulting file, if you so wish.
