My better half just bought a Japanese DVD with music videos, interviews etc of her favorite band, which is a Region 2 code disc. This disc is not available as a Region 0 or Region 1 disc. We can switch the regional code on the Mac's DVD player only 4 times. I presume the DVD player will then only remain functional for discs with the last used regional code? Of course she doesn't want to watch the DVD only once. That's why she wants to copy it. I usually use MacTheRipper and Handbrake if I want to copy one of my DVDs that I want to be able to watch on my internet tablet. So far it's always worked just fine. MacThe Ripper can't rip that Japanese disc. That's a first, but the copyright protection of that disc is too advanced. HandBrake can't rip it either. 4Media DVD Ripper Platinum for Mac's free trial doesn't work either. The guy who created MacTheRipper abandoned the program a while ago. Someone else continued it, and for a monetary "gift" (He wants $50) he will supply a version that can crack the latest DVDs. However, "CSS" does not come with the software (due to legal issues), but "CSS" will be supplied separately. Does anyone know what "CSS" is and how one implements it? Or maybe there is another ripping software for Mac of that I am unaware? Any advice will be appreciated.
