You can use RipIt to break the encrypt and then add those videos to handbrake to reduce the size…

What to do, though, is try and do the same thing you did before, just with VLC in that folder. It should work then.

In your applications folder. Drag it off the .dmg into your applications folder. Where handbrake is likely kept.

All you have to do is download VLC and install it by dragging it to the applications folder. Download it here.

It’s free. Just click on download, then open the .DMG file that you downloaded, and drag it to the applications folder. Then you can use Handbrake and it won’t give you the error.
