Do you have some DVD movies that want to rip to your iPhone 7, iPad Pro watching on the go? Do you know how to copy DVD to iPad/iPhone? If you have a little experience on DVD ripping, you would know that with DVD Ripper, you can easily convert DVD to MP4 for iPhone and iPad. Among many DVD Ripping applications, Handbrake would be the most popular one.

So, here let’s teach you how to rip DVD to iPhone/iPad with Handbrake. Before start, you should know that Handbrake only can convert unprotected DVDs. If you want to rip protected commercial DVDs, you should install libdvdcss in Handbrake.

Download and install libdvdcss for Handbrake 1.0.7 on Windows/Mac

On Windows, you can download the Libdvdcss file separately (here for 32-bit systems and here for 64-bit systems), leave the filename as libdvdcss-2.dll, and put it in your Handbrake program folder (C:\Program Files\Handbrake).

If you’re on a Mac, download this file and double-click to install it. For Mac users who runs OS X El Capitan, there will be a few more steps to install libdvdcss on El Capitan. The main reason is that the SIP (Sytem Integrity Protection), a security feature on Mac OS X El Capitan is designed to protect critical system files and processes. Unfornately, SIP removes the libdvdcss file that Handbrake needs in order to work. You could disable SIP or use the following complicated way to install libdvdcss on El Capitan. 
1. Close Handbrake, and open a new Finder window. 
2. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /Library/SystemMigration/History 
3. Inside this folder should be a folder named “Migration-[random letters and numbers].” Open that folder and you’ll find “QuarantineRoot.” Open that folder, and you should see yourlibdvdcss.2.dylib file. 
4. Open a second Finder window. 
5. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /usr/local/lib (If you get an error saying this folder doesn’t exist, go to /usr/local instead, create a new folder called “lib”m and open it. 
6. Drag and drop the libdvdcss.2.dylib file from the first window into the /usr/local/lib folder. You should be prompted for your admin password. Type that in and wait for the copy to finish.
