How to Free Decryt and Rip a DVD to QuickTime MOV on MacBook/iMac

Free Download free DVD converter for Mac, install and run it. Click "DVD Disc" to add DVD from DVD drive. Or you can click "Folder" or "ISO" to import DVD content from DVD folder/ISO image saved on your computer.
How to tell if a DVD is copy protected?
Currently, virtually all DVD discs have CSS encryption on them. Some have RCE and many new releases from Sony or its subsidiaries have ARccOS. So many free tools will be bogged down to DVD rip errors or cannot detect the right title and even crash.

Luckily, MacX DVD Ripper Free is able to instantly detect the right title without any other application help or analysis error.
Step 2: Choose "to MOV" as output format
Here we choose "MOV H264" or "MOV MPEG-4" as output format from "Mac General Video". You can also change audio and video parameters as you wish.
Step 3: Select Audio/Subtitle Tracks
Come back to home screen, change the default "Disabled Subtitle" to Track1 English, Track2 French or forced subtitle at your willing. If your desired subtitle track isn't covered within your DVD disc, go to Google to dig out your required subtitle track and add external .srt subtitles to this movie.
Afterwards, tap the expansion symbol to opt for the audio track you need, e.g., AC3 English 6ch, AC3 French 6ch, AC3 English 2ch, etc.
