How I rip DVDs and Blu-Rays in 2020

It’s come to my attention that it’s been five years since I updated my story about how I rip DVDs and Blu-Rays on my Mac. It was so long ago that I was still using iTunes Sharing to make those videos available on my Apple TV! These days it’s all about Plex.

In the intervening time, my workflow has changed pretty dramatically. macOS updates have made HandBrake more of a secondary tool than a primary one, and I’m relying almost entirely on the $50 utility MakeMKV and some free encoding scripts from Don Melton. I’ve updated my post with what I’m doing these days.
