How to Convert DVD Video_TS Folder to MP4 on Mac and PC

Here are the scenarios:
I have a DVD folder of a series that I'd like to convert Video_TS to MP4, so that I may watch it on my Xbox 360. However, each video in the folder has 2 subtitle tracks. I'd like to convert these and hardsub the second subtitle track. I'm running OSX 10.8.3 on a MacBook Air (1.8GHz Core i5 + 8GB RAM). 

Using Mac The Ripper I have ripped a number of my own DVDs onto my HD, now I'm trying to convert Video_TS folder but only get "CSS Encryption, Disc cannot be copied". AFAIK Mac The Ripper was supposed to remove CSS Encryption, but now I have 20+ Video_TS folders that are kind of useless. Is there any way to remove the encryption while it is still a Video_TS folder?
