This method does work, however, it is rather long and un-needed. Use Magic DVD Ripper and get a key from youtube. Its much easier and effective.

What you are recommending is software piracy. You can certainly purchase Magic DVD Ripper for around $35-$40 though.

Ironically, it's the subject of the blog entry that's more illegal in the US. You can get dvd rippers free all over the place. The sites, "Giveaway of the Day" and "CNET Cheapskate" talk about free dvd rippers all the time. However, technically the act of defeating copy protection violates US DMCA. I believe the UK allows a copy as long as you have the original on hand.

The DMCA exception instituted in 2010 allows for the CSS protection to circumvented for certain circumstances, such as using a legally obtained DVD for non-commercial or educational uses. That exemption is valid until 2013 and then it will be reviewed again. Side note: That exception also contains clauses that make it legal to root and unlock cell phones. Edit: This is the U.S. I'm talking about, btw.

It's not piracy, it's sharing.. and we all know sharing is caring.

Na, recommend DVD ripper for most DVDs, DVD fab for those stupid ones with extra protection. Go to doom9.org for all the up to date stuff you need. And no, that site does not condone piracy either. In fact, it posted the whole transcript of the dumb judge on the DeCSS trial. It dealt with the actual law about breaking encryption, which still says fair use can't be denied. He didn't buy it.

Actually I'd like a post explaining the difference between actual piracy and file sharing because there seems to be much confusion on the internet.

I can finally rip all my men's health DVD and carry then around with me! Thanks for the heads up

Man I hope is free. I'm running out all of options. I hate to use NERO to convert my DVDs to Mp4 formats on four different files. Everytime i download a free software it says FREE TRAIL which means YOU have to pay. Going to try it out anyway to see if it works.
