    HandBrake is a GPL’d multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 ripper/converter. HandBrake was originally available on the BeOS, but now has been ported over to MacOS X and to GNU/Linux.

    What does this mean?

    You insert a DVD into your drive and run HandBrake. In about 30 minutes, there will be a .mp4 file on your desktop about 1GB in size that has the entire movie. Quality is superb, and QuickTime is able to play these movies without any problems.

    Also works perfectly with Front Row.

    how does it get past newer dvd security?

    i remember on my windows box, that when new movies would come out (like when resident evil 2 came out), i had to search some forums to find a fix for dvddecrypter because it was not being updated

    on my windows box i have the following:
    dvdshrink
    dvddecrypter
    dvdfab decrypter
    ripit4me <- my favorite because it is continually updated
    fixvts
