Handbrake Help
Posted by: kurtzie
Date: January 29, 2011 01:36PM
When I try to scan my source disc to rip a DVD, I get this message:

Handbrake could not find VLC or your VLC is incompatible
(Note: 32 bit VLC is not compatible with 64 bit handbrake and vice versa).

I am using 32 bit Handbrake and 32 bit VLC

Handbrake version 0.9.5 i386

VLC version 1.1.6 (Intel 32 bit)

Mac OSS 10.6.6

2.16 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

2 Gig RAM

Has any one else seen this error?

Where are the Handbrake preferences?

Thanks,

Steve

Make sure your VLC has been authorized. Just launch the app and hit the ok to run this downloaded app button.

If that doesn't fix it, I'd download VLC and authorize from scratch.

VLC is up and running.

VLC is a fresh download.

Handbrake's activity log says:

VLC app not found for decrypting physical DVD.

I have VLC up and running. It is located in the same applications fold as Handbrake.

DID YOU OPEN THE GOODIES FOLDER AND RUN THE SCRIPT TO GET RID OF THE PREVIOUS PREFERENCES?

Also... you might be better off ripping the DVD with RipIt or one of those, and using handbrake on the
VideoTS folder that's on your drive.

That way you know that you've been successful in getting the data off the DVD - and no copyguard
interfered with the process.

Thanks!!

If you want a free solution that lets you read on-the-fly from the DVD like you were trying to do with Handbrake + VLC, you might try FairMount.

This still requires VLC, but it may make Handbrake happy.
It mounts the disk as if it is already decrypted so Handbrake should be able to read the VideoTS files directly from the FairMount-mounted copy.

I like the CODECs that come with VLC. They are updated regularly - which is nice, and it's free.

I'm surprised that even QuickTime will look to whatever it deposits for conversions you ask IT to do.

VLC does not need to be running when you run Handbrake. VLC needs to be in the Applications folder.

The solution to fix this issue can be found here [forum.handbrake.fr]. Basically download the installer for libdvdcss and install it. Then Handbrake works as before. Handbrake will not work with VLC 2.0.

I'm looking for help on the same issue. I did find a copy of libdvdcss. Based on what I've read, it sounds like that's what I need to install....but I can't install it where Handbrake is. I think my issue is that I installed handbrake incorrectly. Even though I dragged the Handbrake icon to the Applications folder, Handbrake is showing up on my desktop and in Finder as a separate Device. Does anyone out there know what I did wrong to make it show up that way? Thanks.
