When watching ripped DVD movies, you may encounter the following problem: you can not catch what the characters are saying when they speak their native language without subtitles. So, is it possible to rip DVDs with subtitles they prefer?
Best Solution to Rip DVDs With Preferred Subtitles
There are lots of free or paid programs out there that allow us to digitize DVD discs. Most of you are likely familiar with the excellent Handbrake for ripping DVDs. However, if you try to use HandBrake to rip read-only DVD, you will probably end in failure. Only with the help of libdvdcss, HandBrake can rip some read-only discs with CSS. But the annoying thing is that libdvdcss doesn’t always work.
