Handbrake is brilliant, yes, but it doesn't have any internal copy
protection support at all - it just uses libdvdcss if it finds it installed.

Incidentally, for any new users who want to try Handbrake, I'd suggest using
the latest development snapshot rather than the "stable" but now rather old


H.264 encoding is now dramatically faster thanks to improvements made to
x.264 in the last year or so.
