Beginners Guide: How To Rip a DVD In HandBrake on Ubuntu

Handbrake is probably one of the most well known cross-platform DVD rippers, it runs on Linux, Windows and OSX. On Ubuntu I find it's best to install from the official PPA.

1. Insert the DVD movie.

2. Open HandBrake.

3. Select Source...

4. Select the DVD on the left hand pane, as shown:

5. Wait for HandBrake to scan the DVD, a preview should appear. The default settings are fairly sensible in Handbrake, but you can check and adjust when needed. Press Start when ready...

6. ..and then wait while Handbrake rips the DVD...

7. Finally the DVD should be ripped and ready to play (only for personal use of course). Close Handbrake and enjoy your freshly ripped movie.
