How to import your own Movies/DVDs to Itunes/Ipad/Iphone

This is a quick tutorial on how to get your own Dvd's or movies into iTunes so that you can put them on your ipad or iphone. This is only for MAC computers, as I do not own a PC .... ( sorries)

Before watching the tutorial video you will need to :

- Download Mac the Ripper (free Software) http://mactheripper.en.softonic.com/mac
- Download Handbrake ( free software) http://handbrake.fr/

Step 1:
Insert the DVD into your DVD Drive. If it starts playing just hit escape. We don't need it to play, just need it in the drive.

Step 2: Open up "Mac the Ripper" software from your applications folder ( Finder >Applications>mac the ripper) and wait for it to recognize your DVD. Notice where the DVD will be saved to once it is done ripping.
Orange arrows point to the location where your Rip will be stored and also the status bars showing progress.

Step 3: Now that you have ripped the movie , you should find a saved copy on your computer. I have mine saved to the desktop for ease of finding ....( it will look like a file folder)

Step 4: Open "Handbrake " software and click on "source" and find the file you just saved to your desktop. You can choose the size fall in the right margin. I always choose "ipad". 
Then click "start". 

Once this starts it will take about 40 minutes or so. When it is done it will pop up a notification for you. It will also create a video file on your desktop. Take that file and drag and drop it into itunes.

You will see in itunes it saving there. You can press "command" and "i" to get to the info screen and change the title or other info.

Once you are done and you know it is in  itunes, you can click and drag all the files we used to the trash.
