HandBrake can through error messages and give you no options (blank) in the Title drop-down because it cannot get past the Content Scramble System (CSS).  Or the resulting video is all garbled.

The best solution I have found is to install XBMC somewhere (doesn’t have to be on the same machine) and copy the libdvdcss-2.dll file out of the XBMC\system\players\dvdplayer folder and into the Handbrake installation folder.

Update: Easiest to just copy the libdvdcss-2.dll from here: http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.11/win64/libdvdcss-2.dll 
Rename it to libdvdcss.dll and copy it to the HandBrake installation folder.

That seems to allow HandBrake to read and rip the disk properly.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Thank you!
