    15 In Mac OS X, if !HandBrake detects you have installed the open source VLC media player in your root /Applications folder, it will ask you if you want to decrypt DVDs using that application's copy of the libdvdcss library. If you are using a 32-bit copy of !HandBrake, it can only work with a 32-bit copy of VLC, and a 64-bit copy of !HandBrake can only work with a 64-bit copy of VLC.

    1718Similarly, in Linux, if you've chosen to install the open source libdvdcss library on your system, !HandBrake will allow libdvdread to use it for decryption.

     22!HandBrake can read the structure of some blu-ray discs or .ts files ripped form blu-ray discs[[BR]]

     24It does NOT decrypt commercial discs with copy protection. This will require 3rd Party software.[[BR]]
     25HandBrake does NOT in any way link to any 3rd party libraries for this task. (As it does for libdvdcss - noted above).

     27Please note, PGS subtitles are not currently supported.

    1929=== Why to rip DVDs to a hard drive before encoding with !HandBrake ===
    2030
    21 The main reason to read from a ripped VIDEO_TS or .iso, stored on your hard drive is that !HandBrake does not even attempt to decipher the latest copy protection schemes. Many DVDs, especially recent, popular films, must be run through other tools first, like AnyDVD.

    2334Desite this, one might still argue that using !HandBrake to encode directly from the DVD simplifies the process by removing the extra step of copying the movie. However, reading the video information from your optical drive is somewhat slower than reading from your hard drive and prevents you from using your optical drive for anything else for the duration of the encode. It is also a little harder on the drive itself.

    29 Most of the time when !HandBrake has trouble reading a DVD it is because of intentional authoring defects placed there by the company releasing the disk. The movie studios have started breaking the DVD standard in subtle ways to trip up ripping applications.  If you encounter the "no valid title found" error, or your audio drops out halfway through, or you encounter any other weirdness, see [http://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?t=2937 How To: Rip & Encode using Fairmount and DVD2OneX].
     40Most of the time when !HandBrake has trouble reading a disc, it is because of copy protection or poor / deliberate bad mastering. Your success rate will depend on what ripping tool you use.[[BR]]
