Handbrake is our favorite video encoder for a reason: it's simple, easy to use, easy to install, and offers a wealth of tweaking options to get the best possible file as a result. If you're daunted by them, you don't even have to use them - the app will compensate for you and pick some settings it thinks you'll like based on your destination device. So many of you like Handbrake that many of you use it in conjunction with another app (like VLC, which makes ripping easy) - you'll let another app do the rip and crack the DRM on your discs, and then process the file through Handbrake for encoding. The app is fast, can make the most of multi-core processors to speed up the process, and is completely open source. Best of all, it's completely free.
Since Handbrake can only convert DVDs to MP4(M4V) and MKV, if you want to convert DVD to other video formats like FLV, WMV, etc., Handbrake cannot help you do that. You can learn how to use Handbrake for Mac to rip DVD on Mac.
