Ripping DVD’s The Easy Way On Windows 7 64 Bit
I am in the process of building a library to watch my DVD’s using XBMC. I used to have a dedicated Windows XP 32-bit lap top for this work and used Handbrake to copy and DVD43 would decrypt the DVD on the fly. Since I moved to Windows 7 x64, DVD43 no longer worked and my old computer died. I could make this a two step process by copying the DVD to an .iso, decrypting it in the process, and then copying to MP4. But that doubles my time. I am getting old. Doubling of my time is not a good thing.
Thanks to this post in the Handbrake forums, I am back in business.
I need to a libdvdcss.dll. Download the Windows version of Gstreamer. Find the install directory. Copy libdvdcss-2.dll to the Handbrake installation directory. Rename it to libdvdcss.dll. Launch Handbrake. Alternatively, you can find a copy of libdvdcss-2.dll if you installed XBMC.
