Thanks for the input so far guys! This was not meant to be anything illegal nor is anything I am doing illegal. I have a family reunion coming up and my Uncle gave me MANY DVD's he created from VHS family footage he converted to his machine onto DVD's.
I only need about a few seconds from a few DVD's to make my *****in intro..the others I will have to RIP fully and convert into mpegs as I have large chunks to edit.
I dont mind paying for third party software if someone knows of one that will work it will save me LOTS of time. I had tried this one where it says capture anything in live time, but when I selected the dvd movie that was playing it only showed black..I'm thinking its perhaps the encryption that is not allowing it to be captured?
