I’m having problems ripping my DVD collection and saving all languages and subtitles since moving to Mac. Handbrake used to be working on your old Windows machine and we saved the ripped movie to our 2TB Seagate or playback. But somehow it’s not working with my iMac OS X Yosemite. I’ve tried lots of Mac apps in AppStore, but cannot choose both English and Spanish audio and subtitles. It’s very important to me as my partner speaks Spanish; English is not her mother language. Is there any recommendation on this?
There’re lots of DVD ripper tools, but let’s get off that and make sure which format you need to rip to. If want to rip a protected DVD to 2TB Seagate hard drive with wanted audio & subtitles, here are several recommended formats:
1. Video_TS folder.
A Video_TS folder is usually copied from the original DVD disc directly, it contains all the IFO, BUP and VOB file. In another word, Video_TS is a folder which exactly the same as source disc except the encryption. All audio tracks and subtitles will be copied 1:1 as original so you cannot free choose wanted ones.
MKV is a Matroska file which capable of saving encoded/uncompressed video and audio streams, BD/DVD subtitle files. Choosing wanted audio tracks and soft subtitles can be very easy with the help of a multi-track ripper.
One-click solution to get multiple audio subtitle tracks when ripping DVD to 2TB Seagate hard drive
Step 1. Install the Mac multi-track DVD Ripper; hit “load disc” or “load from folder” to add your DVD.
Step 2. Hit the “Copy entire disc” icon on the top to backup DVD into a Video_TS folder. Multimedia player like VLC player can play it smoothly.
