Extracting a DVD to iTunes?

Sorry if there is a similar thread, I did a search and explored the threads.

Soooooo I was lookin to import or extract or whatever the term is for placing a DVD disc to iTunes. I was wondering if anyone knew of any free software or a way to get the DVDs to iTunes. And if it's software I HATE watermarks, so no watermarks either. Thanks in advance to the "hero" of the day(s).

Handbrake.fr is the best place to go.

There are settings in place for Apple TV/iTunes that are easy to use.

Good lord. I looked at handbrake.fr. It looks complicated. LMP, come over to my house and set it up for me. I'll give you 20 bucks.

Go to 'Download'
If you're on a Mac, get the 32-bit GUI; On a PC, get the XP/Vista/7 GUI

Once you've installed, put the DVD in
Click Source at the top to find your disc, allow it to scan
Once that's all set, go to one of the presets on the side (Apple TV)

Press start and you should be good. Hope that helps.

Thanks! I'll try that sometime this weekend. Will it work in just plain old iTunes and not Apple TV?

Yep. Any of the Quicktime/Apple TV settings go the .m4v format, which'll work in iTunes just fine.

Well, that was a bust. It seemed to download just fine, but when I went to open it, the icon appeared on the dock, then quickly disappeared. It wouldn't open. Then, I'm not sure I would have been able to do anything anyway, because the dvd player starts the second I stick the dvd in.

i hate the autostart feature when you pop in a dvd...when i'm trying to use handbrake. every other time i'm glad it does that.

all you need to do though is just quit the dvd player. even force quitting it is fine. i force quit a lot of programs when i get impatient.

The problem is that I couldn't get the handbrake thing to open at all.

And yeah, force quitting is cheaper than putting a bullet into the thing, which I've considered more than once.

yeah, i read that. that's weird, i've got no problems with handbrake on either of my computer, but i have had that problem once with something else. i forget its name, but it was some zip/rar extraction program. i hate when programs do that.

and yes!

does the dvd have any sort of copyright protection on it? i've got one dvd with (i think) the fbi logo on it and it just sits there scanning forever.

I'm sorry, I forgot that add that you also need to download VLC player to be able to scan discs:

videolan.org
