Mac The Ripper creates DVD authored files such as VOB files etc. in VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders.
I have been unable to do anything with these files in an application, be it iDVD or DVD Studio Pro because they are what these applications produce
rather than what they start with. (Although I am able to watch VOB files using Mplayer, they are not viewable in any other player such as Quicktime.)
Toast works perfectly, provided you use a certain procedure* but obviously Toast costs money.
*Ignore the "video" tab at the top & go to the "data" tab. From the flyout pane at the side, select "DVD-ROM (UDF)". Click on "New Disc", name it if you want & add your video_ts & audio_ts folders. Note: The audio_ts is always empty but some older players look for it so it's best if it's there.
Burn your disc.
If there's room, you can always add additional data files outside of the video_ts & audio_ts folders that won't interfere with the playing of the disc but could be accessed on a computer. (Concert or track listing notes, production details, artworks etc.)
