My main concern is that any technology I opt for must be able to rip the entire content of my DVD (incl. extras, special features, subtitles etc) to a high quality output so that I may watch it on my Mac with the option of then being able to watch this exact same content on a device such as an iPad using a compatible file format.
Having done some basic research, I like the simplicity of RipIt http://thelittleappfactory.com/ripit/ but have discovered that whilst the Rip function in RipIt will output the entire DVD to a file that uses a .dvdmedia extension, it is my understanding that this cannot then be used on an iOS device such as an iPad without some further file conversion. Whilst the alternative Compress function in RipIt would allow me to output to an iOS compatible output, it will nevertheless strip away all of the extra chapters, special features, subtitles, and leave me with just the main feature.
So what I need to ask each of you is how best to proceed. Should I use RipIt to do a full Rip and then look to use some sort of conversion tool such as HandBrake, keeping in mind that I am not so confident in my ability to deal with the myriad options that a tool such as HandBrake requires; perhaps you can you recommend an alternative conversion tool to HandBrake.
Then again, should I just look to an all-in-one solution such as DVD Ripper for Mac
Any advice or tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
