How to Rip and Convert DVD

Step 1. Load DVD Content

Launch Prof. Media for Mac from the launch pad and find the DVD Ripper icon on the top row of buttons on the main interface. You can also enter the DVD Ripper interface by clicking the Convert button on the sub-menu bar.

Add all the content in the DVD disc to the program by clicking the Add Blu-ray/DVD button on the menu on top of the blank area. And on the following drop-down menu, select Add from CD-ROM and you will see the name of your disc in the following menu.

After the disc data are loaded to the program, you will have 3 options for selecting the videos in the disc to rip: Full Movie, Main Movie and Custom Mode. Full Movie will help you select all titles. Main Movie can help you quickly pick out the main movie from all those titles (by the way, this mode will have the longest video selected as the main movie). Custom Mode allows you to freely choose the titles you need from the video title list.

Select a mode and select the videos you need from the list if necessary and then click the OK button to have the chosen videos added to the video list.

After the videos are loaded to the video list, you can play the videos by clicking the Play button on the thumbnail of each video, select subtitles and audio tracks, open the Chapters switch if source DVD titles include multiple chapters to choose chapters for converting, select desired angles if needed, etc.

Note that: there is an extra option Angle for multi-angle DVD and you can click Angle drop-down box to choose certain angle for converting. However, you can only see Subtitle and Audio drop-down boxes for common DVD.

Step 2. Set Output Format for the Videos

By default, you will see a button with the label MP4 video on it. The button shows the format that’s currently being used as the default format for output. Click on this button and a menu would show up below it with 3 buttons. From left to right are buttons: Edit, Change and Apply to All. Click Change and it will take you to the Profile panel.

This panel includes all the supported output formats. You can check out different profiles under different tabs. In the Devices tab, there are profiles designed for specific devices like iPhone, Xbox, PS4, etc. Under Format tab, you can find common video and audio formats like MP4, WMV, MKV, MP3, WAV, etc.

Step 3. Customize Video and Audio Parameters (optional)

After choosing a format from the Profile panel as the default output format, you can make adjustments to the video and audio parameters in the settings. To open the settings panel, click the button on the left side of the green Convert button and then continue to click the Edit button on the following menu. Then you will open the Profile Settings page where you can find all the changeable video and audio parameters. After making changes to the parameters, click OK to save them and get back to the video list.

Step 4. Set Output Directory and Start Ripping the Disc

To move on to the final step, click the Convert button in the upper-right area. And a sidebar would slide out from the right side of the program. The default output directory is on the top. You can set the output directory by clicking the button next to the output directory box. And to start ripping the DVD, click the Convert button at the bottom of the sidebar.

During the ripping process, you can hit the Pause button to pause the process or click Cancel to cancel the whole ripping process.
