Unless I misunderstood your post, ripping DVDs is illegal. Of course there is software out there that can do this. It's not easy because commercial DVDs and Video Tape have copy protection.

yes you did misunderstand me.

I am not a pirate. I am interested in learning the video formats in order to be creative. If anyone else feels the need to inform me of canada's copyright laws please pm. me. Just here for the fact's Thanks

I'm currently re-editing a music video. All I used was DVD Extractor 0.9 for Mac OS 9 to extract the video from the DVD as an mpeg2 file.

I then used quicktime to convert the file to a dv stream.

I then put it into iMove and proceeded to edit it. It looks very good.

I've been playing with video for the last few months too.

I've found that trying to rip stuff from a dvd is doable, but tedious and time consuming. And well the stuff is already put together.

That being said a fun source of great video to play with is Archive.org's Moving Pictures Site. There's tons of fun stuff to play with in there. And it's free!!!!
